Obama’s Unquenchable Love Of The Grandiose

Let’s see; the McCain campaign is successfully cutting you to pieces with ads portraying you as an inexperienced, yet arrogant novice who’s more of a rock star than a politician.

So, what do you do? If you’re Barack Obama, you have Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen[1] open for you, have a Hollywood actress sing the national anthem, and then…I think I will just let the rest of the story speak for itself,[2]

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.

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

…Oscar-winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson will sing the national anthem that night.

The only way Bambi could better fit into the caricature that the McCain campaign has painted of him would be if he wore a cape and had members of Code Pink throwing rose petals in his path as he walked to the podium.

PS: The cape might be a little bit of a stretch, but the rose petals? At this point, would you really be surprised if he had rose petals?

PS #2: Will the crowd be given complimentary Kool-Aid?

PS #3: The only way this could be better would be if some women fainted while Obama was talking.

PS #4: Wait, scratch that. Know what would be even better than fainting women? Creating a troupe of scantily clad “Obama Dancers” to dance around to his speech.
