The Sermon Near The Mound

Oh, brother:

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's big speech on Thursday night will be delivered from an elaborate columned stage resembling a miniature Greek temple. (Emphasis added)

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.

Followed by a simple supper of loaves and fishes, no doubt.

Perhaps someone should remind the Obama campaign of another ancient Greek concept: Hubris.

(The title of the post would have been funnier if they played baseball in the stadium.)
