McCain camp gleefully mocks 'temple of Obama'
Breitbart.com ^ | August 27, 2008 | AFP Stories

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."

The One accepting the coronation of divination in his temple. Fitting.

It’s a Lincoln Memorial/MLK reference. Tomorrow is the anniversary of MLK’s “I have a dream speech.”

Oh, I know. But the more we try to read into his symbolism, the more we can mock him.

Yes it is over the top. Democrats will regret this "you've-got-to-be-kidding moment for a very long time.

The construction of this "temple" has turned Obama into a laughing stock.

Obama is setting himself up as if he were Zeus.

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.

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.

Roman Emperors were gods. The Imperial Cult was about worship of the Emperor who was a divine being with absolute powers.

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.

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.

“Indonesia Jones and the Temple of Electoral Doom”

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"

Telegraphing your punches before the event is stupid. It gives the enemy time to think of a way to make themselves look less ridiculous.

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.

Tomorrow, the tingle up Chris Matthews legs will make him think he is being tasered. He will narrate as follows.

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.
