Toga! Toga! Toga!

More on the Greek tragedy about to unfold at Invesco:
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." Said the first: "Will he send down thunderbolts from the mountain?"
Toga! Toga! Toga!

Go see the bottom photo in this entry over at CDR Salamander.

There is supposed to be a "bump" for a candidate from the party convention. Obama's "bump" may be more like "a bump in the road" that tears out the differential...

Sure they didn't do the Sermon on the Mount idea I suggested, but you had to know they'd do something epic.
