Stagecraft 101

From The Weekly Standard Weblog:

The Temple of Obama

Reuters reports that "Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's big speech on Thursday night will be delivered from an elaborate columned stage resembling a miniature Greek temple."

To which a McCain adviser quipped: "Is this from the Onion?"


No Doric columns for McCain. The stage will be a replica of the Hanoi Hilton. He'll deliver his big speech in a feeble voice, from a hospital cot, swathed in bandages.
