I can’t decide…

Is this bugfuck crazy, or stone cold retarded?

DENVER (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s big speech on Thursday night will be delivered from an elaborate columned stage resembling a miniature Greek temple.

The stage, similar to structures used for rock concerts, has been set up at the 50-yard-line, the midpoint of Invesco Field, the stadium where the Denver Broncos’ National Football League team plays.

Some 80,000 supporters will see Obama appear from between plywood columns painted off-white, reminiscent of Washington’s Capitol building or even the White House, to accept the party’s nomination for president.

He will stride out to a raised platform to a podium that can be raised from beneath the floor.

The show should provide a striking image for the millions of Americans watching on television as Obama delivers a speech accepting the Democratic presidential nomination.

Then he’ll hold aloft his magic sword and proclaim, “by the power
of Grayskull, I HAVE THE POWER!” And then lightning
shoots out of his ass.

Why can’t it be both?

Every day I wonder a little harder if that creature is the Anti-Christ.

And I’m an atheist.

Sorry, I can’t help it…Obama reminds me of the space vampire from Buck Rogers.

If He is Prince Adam/He-Man, then who is Cringer/Battlecat? Joe Biden? I know Orco is Dennis Kucinich, and Skeletor is probably – what? – John McCain.

I’d say it’s ‘fucktarded’.

Mom (age 82) says to me yesterday: “I’m sure as hell not going to vote for That Obama. I hate the thoughts of voting for McCain. What the heck am I gonna do?”

Me: “Pencil me in and vote for me!”

Mom: “Oh jeeze…”

Me: “What?”

Mesa – Apophis, Baal or Anubis? 🙂

The media around here are already scratching their heads about this “Greek Temple” look to the stage, and whether it will backfire by playing into McCain’s “Rockstart Celebrity” critique…..

Scubafreak – gotta be Apophis, as there’s the most resemblance. Although (being perfectly catty) Goa’ould have something in common with many of the more rabid democrats – scheming shriveled up worms at the heart of it.

Once Obama speaks, confetti will rain down on him and fireworks will be fired off from locations around the stadium wall.

Oh lookie, he will be like one of them party popper thingies and shoot confetti out his ass too.

“I’m sure as hell not going to vote for That Obama. I hate the thoughts of voting for McCain. What the heck am I gonna do?”

Many of us have asked the same question. As obnoxious as McCain is, when you examine B.O., there is no comparison. Ayers, Wright, Pflegel, Michelle, Rezko. From sending pork to the hospital that doubled his wife’s salary to hiding 800K in donations to ACORN, to demanding massive redistribution ‘to be fair’, the guy is a punk.
The clencher that will have me going to the polls to vote against him, for McCain, is his despicable disregard for ‘the least amongst us’ (his so-called favorite passage of the Bible)…
The only one speaking against the bill to provide emergency medical care to those babies who didn’t cooperate and die in an abortion, this is what he said (from redstate.com who has the transcript) –

As I understand it, this puts the burden on the attending physician who has determined, since they were performing this procedure, that, in fact, this is a nonviable fetus; that if that fetus, or child – however way you want to describe it – is now outside the mother’s womb and the doctor continues to think that it’s nonviable but there’s, let’s say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead, that, in fact, they would then have to call a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that this is not a live child that could be saved.

That’s it. If a baby comes out and is alive, Barack Obama thought it too damned burdensome to have another doctor, someone used to dealing with live babies, check to see if the baby was viable.

I hope they just go hog wild tomorrow, flames, fireworks, mock explosions, everything. It’s like the kids are in charge going “oooo wouldn’t this be cool.”

Meanwhile stunned Americans are left muttering, wringing their hands, then shouting, “what the hell is going on here!”

Please, oh please.

mesa, Biden can be first prime only if I can pour the molten gold into the hollowed-out groove pattern in his skull bones. I like to be involved with my government.

If you aren’t a Stargate fan, that skull-bones statement is going to be way creepy – go watch the show, Teal’c will tell you.

Walking out of the office today, a young woman from another department struck up a conversation with me. She’d just heard Hillary! pledge her support to Obama. She is very sad; she said she can’t vote for Obama, so she’s going to sit out the election. Then just as we were parting ways, she said something very interesting: “McCain is basically OK. If he nominated a woman for Vice President, I’d vote for him in a minute”.

That statement struck a chord for me. I want Sarah Palin, but I’d settle for Kay Bailey Hutchinson.

I think there are a lot of Dems who are just looking for an excuse, any excuse not to vote for this clown.

Allen and Lokki – you may get your wish yet. I’ve seen things happen in this election year that I would never had expected, and don’t imagine that it’ll change between now and the Reality Poll.

LK, I just thought of another one I’d love to see. So he’s levitated into his temple and a holographic rainbow goes on overhead. At the rate we’re going there will be people writihng on the ground speaking in tongues during his speech.

Hope… please don’t change O-people.

The most freaking hilarious part of this is that Denver already has an amphitheater with Greek columns. It’s just not as BIG as he’d like. The DNC protesters have been using it as the stage for many of their protests, so he could also address their concerns that Obama has refused to meet with them.

As an added bonus, at least until yesterday there was a giant inflatable mosque just a few hundred feet away. I didn’t make it into Civic Center Park today to see if it was still there.

Ooooh, Allen, I’d pay good money to see a gaggle of Obamanites in an epileptic frenzy of obamaglossolalia.

You must be joking Alice. An inflatable MOSQUE? What if it picks up and starts to blow in the wind? Makes it hard to figure out where the hell Mecca up and went off to. Ok, sorry, bad joke. But really, how reverent do you need to be when people are erecting inflatable mosques?

[…] Over at Weasel’s Allen has just opined that he’d love to see a bunch of Obama worshippers fall to the ground after BO levitates into his temple accompanied by an overhead holographic rainbow.  He said they also need to be writhing on the ground and speaking in tongues.  I have coined the term “Obamaglossolalia” to capture the essence (hope no one has already come up with it – google had no hits) – the essence of a bunch of libtard moonbats with no self control, lots of hero-worship, and a generous dollop of babbling meaningless and totally unintelligible phrases like “change” and “hope” and “unity”.  Good words, all.  But next to meaningless for the task at hand, that of elucidating a concrete policy on which to run for POTUS.

It’s not the Ayatollah Khomeini. Can’t recognize who it is, though. I don’t think it’s as-Sistani either. Doesn’t really look like Khamene’i. Maybe some generic guy? I’ll have to find out.

I think it is some generic guy. The point of the project was to encourage people to think of Muslims (and I think specifically Iranians) as individuals. I twitted the name of the project, I’ll go look it up later.

Back to the OT for a sec: those fake columns made me think of the “Stonehenge” sequence in the movie “This is Spinal Tap”. Couldn’t help myself. I kept waiting for the fog machines and the midgets dancing around an 18″ centerpiece flown in on wires. And the mysterious intoned intro: “No one knows… who they were… or…. what… they were doing…”
