The World According to Charles Krauthammer – Barack Obama Has Fallen Off the Deep End


“The Funny Farm”

“Has He Lost His Mind?”

By Charles Krauthammer | August 27, 2008; 11:22 AM ET

“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.”

The Berlin folly — in English.

The Superbowl Halftime Show — without the game.

What’s the finish? Maybe Obama’s got Zhang Yimou to do the hidden-rope trick, and have him lifted, Beijing-style, to the heavens when he’s done. Will he reappear three days later at the Bird’s Nest?

Or maybe he’ll just do a Napoleon and coronate himself. By the time Napoleon made himself emperor, he had won the Battles of Lodi, of Arcole, of Rivoli, of the Pyramids and of Marengo. And had promugulated the Napoleonic Code. He had yet to write a single autobiography.

    Ostentatious anyone? This is just silly. It is worse than the “Possum Seal”. I have been a democrat for 30 years…Unbelievable.

    Off topic:

    I can’t find the numbers, but I heard once that Delaware has two corporations registered for every Delaware resident. Delaware is one of the most corporate friendly states in the union and has more then half of the Fortune 500 companies registered there. If you don’t like the Republicans because you think they are big business lackeys, then this should worry you as a Democrat.
