I watched Sara Palin's speech on Thursday night. This morning I listened to the first 15 minutes of McCain’s speech from last night.
On my way to work I noted a theme that I am starting to hear coming from this ticket. A theme that is similar to the movie “Gladiator.”
McCain/Palin have taken on the theme given to Maximus by dying emperor Marcus Aurelius that the ruling governmental power would be given back to the people.
Currently it seems to me that there are many governmental officials that have lost this sense of direction and have allowed themselves to become very corrupt due to money. These individuals are PUBLIC SERVANTS (not to be confused with community organizer whatever that is) not public serfdom.
I liken Obama/Biden to Commodus with his messiah-like and Presidential “entitlement.”
However, the twist in the story we are seeing develop is the people of the United States of America have the opportunity to make the decision of the outcome of this battle.
The introduction of Sarah Palin as VP candidate was like introducing an imPALINg Gladiator to the arena. Since this announcement Obama and Biden have reacted just as if they were impaled with the first major blow to their campaign. Why do I say this? Their response has been, ‘how dare she attack me and my record of community organizer?’
Obama/Biden and the media have hurt themselves more by allowing Palin to receive all the publicity she is getting. The more she speaks the more ground she takes. They squirm like someone who has been impaled figuratively speaking.
Obama/Biden, bewares of the Ides of November (except 4th vs 15th) this story may not go like the movie did.
I thought these were interesting parallels. How about you JU?
