Is Obama Running for Emporer of Atlantis?

...or maybe Emporer of Greece?
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.
Is this guy completely out of his mind? What can they possibly be thinking? A stage that looks like a miniature Greek temple? This is more over the top than McCain's ads parodying The One. They must have had Rev. Wright help with the choreography.

"...and then Barack can levitate out of the floor with a wreath of olives on his head and mount a chariot that will take him to the stage where he will speak about hope and change. It'll be just like Jesus!"

Here, Barack Obama instructs Democratic volunteers on how to make lawn signs out of papyrus.

Forget Invesco Field becoming Nuremburg for a recreation of Triumph of the Will. We're talking about a recreation of Alexander the Great returning from Persia.

Also rather reminiscent of...hmmmm, well, uh...maybe the Capitol? Or even the Gray House?

Rumor is that the finale is the Anointed one raising his sword to the Heavens, proclaiming, "By the Power of Grayskull I AM HE!!!"

Then he f*rts lightning out his but and flies out of the stadium.

Sorry to ever-bodies, but I have come to the conclusion that this guy is just plain Batsh*t crazy.....

But . . . where's the Chinese Acrobats?

They should be available, I understand a few thousand just lost their jobs when the previous gig ended.
