When History Makes the Latest Flap a Non-Story

Posted by Mike Merritt in Election 2008 on

The “he’s an elitist” story of the day is all about Barack Obama’s plans to give his acceptance speech tomorrow in front of a replica of a wall of an ancient Greek temple, column, lintel, and all.

Besides the fact that the entirety of Western culture largely owes its existence to the Greeks, those people who were paying attention in 2004 noted that the setup seemed oddly familiar to one they had seen before.

Oh yes: the stage set up at the Republican National Convention where George Bush gave his acceptance speech.

When blasting someone for doing something, it would do well to make sure your side hadn’t done it before.
