All hail Emperor Obama!


HAD to post this pic after I saw it on twitter! GREAT combination of Obama themes: Messiah Obama, the presidential seal flop, "hope" and "change," the coronation of Emperor Obama at Barackopolis, and excellent use of arugula!
("Anybody Gone Into Whole Foods Lately And See What They Charge For Arugula?")

More on the over-the-top Greco-Roman set in Invesco field tonight:

Democrats will kneel before the "Temple of Obama" tonight.


As if a Rocky Mountain coronation were not lofty enough, Barack Obama will aim for Mount Olympus when he accepts his party's nomination atop an enormous, Greek-columned stage - built by the same cheesy set team that put together Britney Spears' last tour.


Haha, and this guy complained about the "Celebrity" ad? Looks like it was even more spot on than we originally thought!

Did you watch Obama's speech or did you prematurely formulate your opinion?

Watched it. HI was a little nervous he would knock it out of the ball park, but I was pleasantly surprised to find his teleprompter reading average and underwhelming.

Too bad you feel this way. Many Republicans at U of C law school admire him and his ability to work with people of all kinds.

Really? Please tell me about the most liberal Senator's ability to work with all kinds of people - what are his accomplishments?
