Well, it’s Billy C time.  Slick Willy is back!

One phrase to look up if you are a Democrat – cognitive dissonance.

Does Bill Clinton agree with what he said about Obama during the campaign and yesterday or his vagaries and platitudes of tonight?

As I watch Bill I notice one thing about the speech.  His pant suit is terrible.

No, no, no!

I notice one trend as he opines about Obama- it’s all in the future tense.

Obama will do this…

Obama can in the future…

I have confidence that Barack Obama will respond this way…

There’s no Obama history so you can’t point backwards at bad decisions.

Convenient.

Because there were no policy decisions.  An empty slate is a good slate.

So here’s a video from yesterday.  While you watch it, see if you can answer this question, “Who is candidate X?” Is it Obama?

From ABC News:

Obama Speech Stage Resembles Ancient Greek Temple

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

Why would he do this? How about something simple and safe. Perhaps a single-family home in middle America set?  Something like Wonder Years?

He’s a great speaker- why offer up this softball? He should have better judgment than that.

UPDATED:

Drudge Report has an image:

This won’t be his first temple appearance.  Remember his trip to Jordan?

Obama at Temple of Hercules, McCain team slams media ‘love affair’

As he tries to convince Americans he will keep them safe, the White House hopeful held his first major press conference abroad as presumptive Democratic nominee near ancient Roman ruins and a shrine to the mighty Greek mythic hero.

From one mythical hero to another.

UPDATE 2:

The video!  From the picture I didn’t think it was that bad.  But the video shows the temple in its full glory!

Temple shown at 4 minute mark.

UPDATE 3:

McCain Camp Releases Memo on Obama Temple Event Attire

Proper Attire For The Temple Of Obama (“The Barackopolis”)

To: Interested Parties
From: Brian Rogers, Deputy Communications Director
Date: August 27, 2008
Re: Proper Attire For The Temple Of Obama (“The Barackopolis”)

Today, workers at Invesco Field are putting the final touches on the newest wonder of the modern political world — The Temple of Obama (“The Barackopolis”). It is upon this pulpit that Barack Obama will tomorrow night address thousands of screaming, adoring fans.

There may be some confusion among the press about the venue and appropriate dress code for Barack Obama’s big speech. To help out, we wanted to provide the following tips on appropriate attire. The toga may have gone out of style centuries ago, but after Obama’s temple speech tomorrow night, they’re sure to be flying off the racks.

Suggested Toga Styles:

The Nobleman — This toga is recommended for men. For celebrities and lobbyists, please add the red over toga. One should expect to see such stars as Ben Affleck dress in red robes, along with the lobbyists who fill Invesco Field’s skyboxes. Read the whole memo here.

Well, are Hillary, Bill AND Biden wrong about Barack?

Just like us! Pun intended.

Day one of the DNC can be summed up with one photo:

Hey, after all, they are just like us!  All of my friends went to Harvard, live in million dollar houses, write multiple books, and have terrorists throw fundraisers for me.

Just like the folks next door.

So why don’t they exchange gifts for birthdays and Christmas?

Just like us? Hmm….

No, not really.  I missed the speech.  I’ll have to watch it later.

Captain Nuance, AKA Obama, must now explain the last two years of hope, change, and status quo comments with the Biden pick, right?

No way!  Why would he have to answer a single difficult question about his case of serial cognitive dissonance?

Instead, here’s what we will hear over the next few days:

General demagoguery and straw men.

  • McCain = Bush, or, if you prefer, “McSame”
  • Biden was not really McCain’s friend.
  • Rich people are evil. Corporations that make profit are evil.
  • Robin Hood (Obama) and Fryer Tuck(Biden) will bribe you with $ 1,000 bucks to pay for your evil unleaded
  • Why just create 5 million new jobs when we could simply press the next key over?  Wait… could even use double digits!  10 million new jobs!  $1,000 for every person except for the evil rich! Pot for every chicken!

What you won’t hear?
