This guy is so tone deaf, he and his advisors have really gone off the deep end. I wonder how they will get him out of debating McCain, for when he does, McCain will bring the Messiah crashing back to earth.
I hope the crowd starts chanting “TOGA! TOGA! TOGA!”
You just dont get many parties like this when you’re living in your parents’ basement....

It will be very tough to surpass Hillary’s inspirational quotes last night, especially:
“If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the woods, keep going. If they’re shouting after you, keep going. Don’t ever stop, keep going.”
But Obama seems to be trying hard, with the painted plywood temple. A phony temple for an empty suit, but the wildly cheering crowds won’t care.
I don’t know about Springsteen and Bon Jovi though. I mean, two (cracker) rockers from NJ in the 80s?
The whole thing sounds absolutely surreal.
More like a Greek tragedy. Now that Springsteen has canceled, they should get Styx to play, because that’s where Obama’s campaign is going.
Don’t you mean the vestal virgins?
I don’t suppose they got too many of those when the casting call went out.
The Obamessiah’s people are trying to say that it is supposed to be the portico at the White House. Portico my @$$. But the silliness doesn’t stop there. There is a part that rises out of the floor. (snicker, snicker) Wonder if they are planning on having Obie rise from below in a cloud of smoke to the blaring of some (in)appropriate music. (snicker, snicker)
Yea, I know that was Stonehenge, but still....
Forget celebrity, he's a ROCKSTAR!
“Can’t wait for thursday night to see Barry become the annointed one in front of 80,000 screaming kool aid drinkers.”
Suffering extensively of Obamanausea right now. I don’t think I could watch what could only be Obamanauseation.
More power to you.
Continuing the metaphor, Obama = Paris in the Iliad?
“He will stride out to a raised platform to a podium that can be lifted from beneath the floor.”
They’re MISSING IT! He should be raised up out of the floor. That would a better Hollywood effect.
More like Paris in the Hilton (Ok, I broke the metaphor).
We can't ask The One to accept his anointing in front of a mere 3 or 4 thousand, can we? Obama ought to scare the crap out of every red blooded American because he acts more like he believes in his divinity than any sane person I have ever heard of.
Obama is a Post Turtle -
While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be our President.
The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘post turtle’. Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post turtle’ was.
The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.
The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor’s face, so he continued to explain. ‘You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb a$$ put him up there.’
Sorry, but I’m not buying the Obama dismisses Springstein story. My guess is the Boss bailed.
Michael Medved just mentioned the midgets. Dennis Kucinich, anyone?
Did you come up with “Temple of Dumb?” That’s a good one.
It is stuff like this that reminds me of why I am going to vote for McCain this fall, McCain’s bad, Obama is just plan looney, the Man Child loose in the land of promise.
I would be no one has the balls to tell Obama that this is simply over the top.
That is hysterical!
This is what the Obamanation will do will Other People's Money .....
It is not lost on me, I wonder how many others will ask this while they pay $4.00 for gas!
This is a BIG mistake IMHO.
I think it’s outrageous and unfair that people are making fun of Obama having a messianic complex. I mean, he’s no different than any other average red-blooded American.
He eats his arugula one leaf at a time just like the rest of us do.
When she made that statement last night, I wondered if she was speaking to Barack... as if she were the KKK...
Talk about doofus, Hillary became the Queen Doofus last night when she quoted Harriet Tubman. Who did Hillary think Miss Tubman was warning against? Who does she think was out tracking runaway slaves with torches and dogs? Funny, how Her Doofieness didn’t mention which direction the runaways were going.
I took Harriet’s advice a few years ago and ran 180 degrees from the Democrats. Aided by my newly restored moral compass (thanks to Dennis Prager, Larry Elder, et al) and a profound love of country, I fled towards the light. The hordes still pursue until they are met in battle. Then with torches dimmed, they usually sulk back into the shadows.
I was thinking along the same lines. Maybe she was evoking the image of a lynch mob, very subtlely raising the race factor (again) to remind the audience of his unelectibility and setting herself up for 2012, while at the same time appearing to be firmly supportive.
Sort of like when she "praised" the Biden selection as bringing energy into the campaign. Talk about damnation by faint praise. I just can't believe that Hillary doesn't want to sabotage him, but it can't be obvious. I'll bet the Klintoons will vote for McCain.
Yeah, I didn’t find her dashing at all.... ;-)
What a maroon, I am SO looking forward to the McCain ads that will be generated when lord most merciful Obama makes his grandiose appearance in front of his temple. I guess the only question left to ask is this: "Will he set up a throne, declare himself "god" and demand universal worship at that time or does he plan to do this after he fails to win the election? Inquiring minds want to know.
A man after my own heart!
Okay, here’s what has to happen:
Republicans set up a bunch of viewing parties where they wear the requisite garb and do the chant.
Start a buzz about the toga viewing parties.
Get many clips on YouTube from all over the country.
Oh thank you, you freaking simpletons in the dhimmcrat party. LOL...they are truly amazing.
I wonder how much of this gift to John McCain cost them?
Ping to #38, pookster!
Yoda Hussein Obama
Doris Kearns Goodwin (leftist) wrote an amazing book about Lincoln called 'Team of Rivals'. It details Lincoln's predicament: he was the last choice of his party, surrounded by ambitious, craven men. He did the only thing he could have done-- he made them his cabinet. By the end of his term they were almost to a man his staunchest allies. Read it, and amaze yourself at how small this barack obama really is.
Hopefully this romanesque crap will be his next big mistake.
Hah! I missed the arugula when I first saw that this morning!
Why does this type of hype gain him any votes?
