Photos of Obama’s Temple – UPDATE: VIDEO TOUR ADDED

I feel like I have to say this a lot this political season: This is not a joke. (well, it should be a joke…but it’s not) Click the images to view Full Size:

If the temple was in honor of the Denver Broncos…I guess I could handle that… 

Best comment from AOS: Rats. I was hoping they’d hire the same artist who did Stonehenge for Spinal Tap.

(content warning – couple of F bombs…)

Ed Morressey has the connection:

The parallels are interesting, at least. Obama wants to treat us the way Apollo treated the Enterprise crew — as children who need do nothing but gather food and worship him. He promises them peace, tranquility, and happiness, as long as they agree to become his servants and relinquish their free will. In the end, Kirk and his crew destroy his power source and send him off to his fellow demigods in bitterness rather than allow themselves to become enslaved to Apollo.

    Save the women and children!!!

    Get a grip guys. You’re looking at photos of a half-built stage and going bananas.

    And it’s not like the Republicans have never stood in front of a temple while speechifying themselves, let alone making a convention stage that actually does look like a temple. Just needed some candles for that one from 2004. (I know, I know. It was so long ago… very easy to forget about the 2004 RNC pulpit while running around calling kettles black.)

    Republicans who are mocking Obama’s appearance haven’t mentioned it, but George W. Bush accepted his own nomination in 2004 on a set with a similar neoclassical theme, with columns rising on either side of him, as the pictures above and below show.
