McCain Isn't A POW, He's A POS

Tonight Barack Obama will accept the candidacy of the Democratic Party for the office of President of the United States of America, 45 years to the day after the famous March on Washington, and Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech. The first African-American to receive the nomination of a major political party for that office.

So how does McCain recognize this historic occasion? What does he do to mark the event? This (emphasis mine):

Republicans, who mock Barack Obama as a self-appointed savior, gleefully pounced Thursday on pictures of a classically-themed set for his big convention speech, which they said resembles a temple.

The Democratic presidential candidate will accept the party White House banner before a more than 70,000-strong crowd at an outdoor football stadium here late Thursday.

Pictures and an aerial film footage of the set being constructed for the speech show a curved, backdrop with creamy, gray column-like structures, which could suggest a classical structure, like a Greek or Roman temple.

The backdrop may also be intended to evoke the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, where civil rights icon Martin Luther King gave his soaring "I have a Dream Speech" exactly 45 years to the day before Obama's keynote address.

As anticipation for Obama's address built, Republicans sent out an edition of their "Audacity Watch" email newsletter which they use to point out perceived examples of hubris by the Obama campaign, titled "The Temple of Obama."

This, from the same guys who have been worshipping at the Temple of SatanBush/Cheney for the last eight years? The so-called "maverick" who voted against the MLK federal holiday, who's voted with Bush 95% of the time? The cranky old bastard who, when asked to define "honor", told Time magazine "read my books"?

He's not a POW, he's a POS.
