After walking through a very, very long line (which actually moved pretty well) I’ve made my way into Invesco field. At the moment I am blogging from a blogger area which is in the glassed-in press box way above the field. I have an excellent view of the “Greek columns” that seem to have created such a hubbub, with Team McCain deriding the structure as “the Temple of Obama” and “the Barackopolis” (the latter is actually quite funny). Here they are.
I mean, for God’s sake. What is the big deal? It looks vaguely like the White House, vaguely like the Capitol, vaguely like the Supreme Court. That, obviously, is the point. This “Barackopolis” nonsense, while witty, isn’t anything more than the media mindlessly parroting McCain talking points. There’s been a lot of that lately. It needs to stop.
UPDATE: Here is another view, taken by Bob who is down on the floor with the Mass. delegation.
