Skip to comments.McCain camp gleefully mocks 'temple of Obama'
Posted on 08/27/2008 12:04:29 PM PDT by IndianPrincessOK
Republicans, who mock Barack Obama as a self-appointed divine savior, gleefully pounced Thursday on pictures of the set for his big convention speech, which appears to resemble a temple. The Democratic presidential candidate will accept the party White House banner before a more than 70,000-strong crowd at an outdoor football stadium here late Thursday.
Pictures and an aerial film footage of the set being constructed for the speech show a curved backdrop with creamy, gray column-like structures, which could suggest Washington architecture, or a classical structure, like a Greek or Roman temple.
Republicans sent out an edition of their "Audacity Watch" email newsletter which they use to point out perceived examples of hubris by the Obama campaign, titled "The Temple of Obama."

"he will deliver his speech from an elaborate columned stage resembling a miniature Greek temple"
TOGA TOGA TOGA!!!!! Party like it 450.....BC!!!
Celebrities Out......Offerings In!!!!!!!!
It’s a Lincoln Memorial/MLK reference. Tomorrow is the anniversary of MLK’s “I have a dream speech.”
It doesn’t matter, it’s still so over the top.
this article written by a liberal?
“percieved examples of hubris” when it should be “examples of hubris”
Oh, I know. But the more we try to read into his symbolism, the more we can mock him.
Barack I — Emperor of the Union of the Americas
Its a Lincoln Memorial/MLK reference. Tomorrow is the anniversary of MLKs I have a dream speech.
Oh that explains it....and Obama thinks he is reincarnated MLK??? Or just THE KING
“Indonesia Jones and the Temple of Electoral Doom”
OOOOHHHHHH good one!!!
This is both arrogant and funny at the same time! LOL.
They’re just making it too easy . . . .
The construction of this "temple" has turned Obama into a laughing stock.
Obama is setting himself up as if he were Zeus.
Anyone on site to keep an eye on this thing? I’d hate to see them have second thoughts under this onslaught of ridicule and pull it down before the speech.
What is this, an op ed?
Mussolini addresses the Fascisti at the Coliseum
Ironically McCain is the enemy.
The Doof. That’s what we used to call former Indiana basketball “coach” Mike Davis. Going from Bob Knight to Mike Davis, not the kind of change anyone could believe in but, just like Obama, many did. We now know that worked out REALLY well.
Obama’s temple of doom
And all the delegates can be considered temple prostitutes.
It’s definitely over the top, but completely in line with that disgusting photo of BO — haughty, nose in the air, smug look on his weasly face. Perfect.
This rivals the “Obama Presidential Seal” except that he can’t take it down after one appearance.

Republicans need to learn to hold fire until AFTER the RATS make fools of themselves. Telegraphing your punches before the event is stupid. It gives the enemy time to think of a way to make themselves look less ridiculous.
Wile E Coyote Democrats
If you really looked, you’d find an ACME stamp on that temple!
But you better watch out with that: he’s a Christian and don’t you forget it.
(as if one were really needed, but, you never know...)
This is all a bad dream, isn’t it? We’re going to wake up soon and have real choices for president, aren’t we? hello? Is this thing on??
I hear you.
Yep, for someone who claims to be for the “common man,” Obama’s entire campaign has been over the top. I hope his Hollywood friends and PR people keep pushing this stuff.
I agree with you. Fortunately, sometimes the Rats are too full of themselves they don't change anything.
NO! this is perfect. Now 1) Obama will be off his game feeling stupid while talking and 2) People who watch will be laughing the whole time.
Result? No bounce.
Great tune. Decidedly worth a listen!
temple of doobage
OOOOHHHHHH good one!!!
Believe me, if I had any Photoshop skill, I'd be all over some movie posters.
Or if I had video shooting and editing talent, I'd have the YouTube ad already up, showing a hapless Indonesia Jones running through the jungle, trying to escape the giant rolling boulder of his liberal record.
Maybe get the movie announcer guy to read the ad...
"You thrilled to 'Raiders of the Left Wing', and chilled to 'The Lost Campaign' and 'The Empty Skull'. Now, see Indo in his most amazing adventure yet... The Temple of Electoral Doom"
Yes....Send your idea to some folks...maybe Dennis Miller.
Rush was avoiding Godwin’s law... barely.
Jews get nervous when a charismatic leader speaks to a large crowd at night under bright lights with pagan themes in the background.
and a screen shot of it today I got off msnbc
The election's only a few months away; the coronation only a few hours. You'd need *years* to figure out a way to make this look less ridiculous.
This is like being a safe distance away from a cat that pulled the pin out of a grenade it was playing with.

so if they tear it down we can ridicule them for the enormous carbon footprint of having the dnc in 2 places and building 3 sets
Here comes Barack. He looks majestic as he pilots his personal chariot, his robes flowing majestically from behind. The crowds are falling in his wake, much like those healed at a Benny Hinn concert. His gentle smile harkens to the Mona Lisa, his humility evident for all to see. It is a dark night, yet he exudes light that illuminates all that he sees and I personally am having tingly feelings I never thought possible. He waves his hand and all fall silent before him as will I. Listen to him.
