A big hat tip to ‘Born Again Redneck’ for this one.
Is this bloody idiot for real? A hell of a lot of politicians are up themselves, but Precious really takes the cake.
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.Obama has always struck me as suffering from messianic delusions, but now a Greek god? Has this got something to do with: - “A light will shine down from somewhere. It will light upon you. You will experience an epiphany. And you will say to yourself, I have to vote for Barack.”
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.
noun ( pl. -nies) (also Epiphany)
the manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles as represented by the Magi (Matthew 2:1–12).
• the festival commemorating this on January 6.
• a manifestation of a divine or supernatural being.

I would have thought the ridicule he copped over the Obama Presidential seal would have been enough for him. Some people just never learn.
