    This will not sit well with many. Here’s a rundown of my night at convention: 2:55 p.m. — After a long walk, I reach the huge white tents where we have to go through the scanning and search routine. There are dumpsters filling up with stuff people can’t take into the stadium. I notice umbrellas and even American flags thrown in the trash cans. (Ironically, everyone inside was handed an American flag.) This story is now breaking.

    This morning, Republicans tell me that a worker at Invesco Field in Denver saved thousands of unused flags from the Democratic National Convention that were headed for the garbage. Guerrilla campaigning. They will use these flags at their own event today in Colorado Springs with John McCain and Sarah Palin. Before McCain speaks today, veterans will haul these garbage bags filled with flags out onto the stage — with dramatic effect, no doubt — and tell the story. “What you see in the picture I sent you is less than half of total flags,” a Republican official emailed. “We estimate...

    Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's highly anticipated speech at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night nearly matched the record-setting numbers of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. Palin pulled in 37.2 million viewers across broadcast and cable networks, according to Nielsen Media Research.

    Last Thursday evening at the Democratic National Convention, presidential candidate Barack Obama tried to score a political touchdown on the 50 yard line of Denver's Invesco Field stadium. Instead, he won the all-time governmental convention award for the best over-the-top political spectacle of sight, sound, speech and pyrotechnics – complete with superstar performances, Braveheart-like epic music endings and an Olympic-sized fireworks show. For a week prior to the event, newscasters, commentators and pundits were trying to guess what exactly that Greco-Roman, column-structure was that served as a stage backdrop, and what it was supposed to be representing and stating on...
  • GOP's Greek-Column Ridicule Of Obama -- Racist?

    When the Republicans mocked Barack Obama's decision to speak in an outdoor stadium with Greek columns as an opportunity for Obama to descend to speak to "mere mortals," Washington Post essayist and apparent psychic Philip Kennicott didn't see mockery of hubris. His mind-reading exposed white Republican racists resenting a black man appropriating Greek culture, with its "white temples, white statues, white marble."

OBAMA: I accept your nomination. I thank you. I am grateful... I love you. I am so proud... I stood before... That's why I stand here......... Tonight I say... I don't know about you... I'm not ready... I quote... Americans I know... I don't believe... I just think... I am standing here... I see... I think... I listen... I remember... I stood... I hear......

    New York Times ^ | 8/29/2008 | Patrick Healy
    Good, great or something else, Senator Barack Obama’s acceptance speech Thursday night unquestionably confronted two of his greatest challenges. One was to help voters, in emotion-laden language, to connect his promise of “change” to more earthly policy proposals, the other to show he could take the fight to Senator John McCain over Mr. Obama’s own image and the best way forward for the nation. Mr. Obama showed real fire, and directed memorable fire at his opponent, even on Mr. McCain’s signature issue, national security. “If John McCain wants to have a debate about who has the temperament and judgment to...

    RUSH: This show tonight at Invesco Field at Mile High, and everybody's been trying to figure out what the set is that they've built. It's either a Greek temple or they're trying to replicate the surroundings of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. Whatever it is, I read something at the American Thinker website today. After reading it, I happened to see the best shot of this set that I have seen yet. Apparently, The Messiah, after leaving the convention last night, went over to Invesco Field to do sort of a walk-through and familiarize himself with the...

    Why and how did McCain catch up? The greatest consideration is Obama’s Hellenic hubris, which is different than simple arrogance. Hubris is a sort of fit, a haughtiness steeped in delusions of grandeur and divinity that takes over a weak individual, and soon encourages recklessness and overreaching (atê), all culminating in ruin and divine retribution (nemesis). So he transfers his speech to an outdoor forum, where tens of thousands of raving fans can watch him apotheosize in front of a faux Doric temple and accept nomination...

    Barack Obama is slated to begin his glorious campaign tour from a greek columned facade aptly named the Baracropolis at Invesco Field At Mile High Stadium in Denver. Obama’s 75,000 to 85,000 disciples are required to be seated at least four hours prior to his final blessing before his forty day tour of the 57 states he plans to represent and govern. Gates open at 1pm local time. Obama isn’t supposed to speak until 8 pm local time. Expect Bob Herbert to come out raging that the columns are racist phallic symbols if the speech does not go well for...

    Senior Democratic officials are expressing serious concerns about the political risks posed by Barack Obama’s acceptance speech at Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium Thursday evening. From the elaborate stagecraft to the teeming crowd of 80,000 cheering partisans, the vagaries of the weather to the unpredictable audience reaction, the optics surrounding the stadium event have heightened worries that the Obama campaign is engaging in a high-risk endeavor in an uncontrollable environment. A common concern: that the stadium appearance plays against Obama’s convention goal of lowering his star wattage and connecting with average Americans and that it gives Republicans a chance...

    So all the buzz today was supposed to be about two big Wednesday speeches -- Bill Clinton’s and Joe Biden. Why, then, is everyone in Denver talking about stagecraft? It’s simple: Reporters got their first glimpse of the stage where Barack Obama will deliver his speech tomorrow night at Invesco Field. Reuters described the set as similar to a "Greek temple." Thus a legend -- not the good kind -- was born. Said one Democrat: "This is a disaster of mythical proportions." Said another: "It's not enough that he wants to be president -- he wants to be Zeus."

    Recently, there has been a great deal of chatter concerning whether some are assigning god-like qualities to the Democratic Party's presidential nominee. Fuel will be thrown upon the cult of personality fire surrounding Barack Obama, after his acceptance speech on Thursday night. Obama will be separated from the common people, who will be back at the Pepsi Center--where most of the Democratic Party's Convention has taken place this week. Obama and Party officials have decided to move what may seem like a coronation to many out of the convention hall ...
