    McCain Camp Mocks ‘Temple of Obama’

    Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign has released a memo mocking Democrat rival Barack Obama’s decision to decorate the stage he will give his acceptance speech tonight on as the “Temple of Obama.”

    The memo, titled "Proper Attire for the Temple of Obama (The Barackopolis)," pokes fun at the neoclassical-style stage Britney Spears’ set supervisor Bobby Allen designed for the elaborate event at 75,000-seat Invesco Field, home of the NFL’s Denver Broncos.

    "It's only appropriate that Barack Obama would descend down from the heavens and spend a little time with us mere mortals when accepting the Democratic nomination," Republican National Committee spokesman Danny Diaz tells the New York Post.

    With this memo, the "the One" ad and the celebrity ad, McCain's strategy to win over potential swing votes seems to be to insult them by calling them worshipers and groupies. I see these ads as attacking Obama's supporters more than Obama himself.

    McCain may be in his 70s have 25 yrs on Obama, but from these campaigns I question his maturity and judgment more than I question Obama's.

    Yes, in the past month Senator McCain has pretty much destroyed his own reputation as being a politician who wouldn't go into the gutter to try to win an election. We all know the truth about his low character now.

    It is Senator McCain's campaign that has gone into the gutter. How despicable on their part.

    Obama has done his share of mudraking. Actually, you have too when you try to tarnish McCain's military record and accomplishments.

    Now THAT is despicable!

    As a point of personal privilege I must ask that you provide proof or else withdraw that remark.

    Did you find out why Obama moved to a stadium? Seems like record breaking people requested a ticket within the first 24 hours that they had to move the speech to a facility with more room to accommodate as many as they could. They are saying close to 50K people still had to be turned away even though they only took request for 48 hours...

    As for the stage, I guess we'll see what type of stage McCain has next week but he should have them put it up high if he wants to be seen by all.

    Then don't say the R's don't follow Jesus' humanitarian teaching and clothe the naked, among other things.

    So, what will happen if we don't burn incense at the alter of Emperor Obama?

    I wonder about the wisdom of having a major acceptance speech on the opening night of college football? Personally, I have no desire to go to Obama's temple. I'll stick with the football game.

    This is the truth.

    I predict that the RNC will get a free ride for all of their coventioneering next week. Its okay, after all if the GOP politic.

    Whoops - didn't get back to edit in time :).

    Some of the folks here (on the BB) who have attacked every little aspect of the DNC convention will let the RNC do whatever they want without complaint.


    But then, many of them think that GOP stands for God's Own Party :)

    I don't think it is really in the gutter. The approach just seems childish and looks to me like a poor strategy to draw potential swing voters.

    I think I would be more understanding if he did use more gutter tactics because it would actually benefit his position.

    Here is a good article on the worship of Obama:

    http://www.worldmag.com/articles/14287

    It is sad to see, but even more sad to see professing Christians participate in it, too. Oh that we as Christians would put our hope in Christ and not mere men.
