Bonkers! The British paper, the Daily Mail is currently running this shot of a prop arriving for the Obama Sermon tomorrow in Denver:
Presidential image: A full-scale replica of Air Force One fuselage arrives at Invesco Field before Mr Obama speaks -Daily Mail
We've already had the leaked photos of the Greek Temple / faux White House backdrop, but it seems to me that this little touch -- if they are actually stupid enough to use it -- will be enough to cause high-velocity bipartisan projectile vomiting from coast-to-coast. It also might be [ice-on-cake / straw-on-cameltoe / bridge-too-far] element of the Obama Potemkin Presidency that insures he never gets on board Air Force One -- without an invitation from a merciful McCain.
I am praying, praying, that this is a hoax or some demented party favor. If it is actually used in any way at the speech, Denver will end up as the Democrat Jonestown.
Sigh. Every day, as they say, "I try to become more cynical, but lately I just can't keep up."

UPDATE: My prayers are answered. It turn out, according to a commenter, that the plane is just a part of The Presidential Experience - "A nonpartisan tribute to Presidential history." "which will be held August 22-27 (Closed to public on August 28th) re-opens August 29th until 5:00 pm." Whew. Still..... there is a certain irony in thinking that this tribute to Presidential history will be closed tomorrow so that some real Presidential history can be made at the venue.Posted by Vanderleun at August 27, 2008 12:15 PM
