#4 Preznit "Head In The Sand" - not just figuratively
Posted by Frank G 2012-09-02 10:21||
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desart. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

#6 "The expression "feet of clay" can be traced back to the biblical Book of Daniel. King Nebuchadnezzar experienced a terrifying dream in which he saw a massive statue constructed from various precious metals. The feet of this statue were composed of a mixture of iron and clay, making it especially vulnerable to an attack. Indeed, an massive stone did strike the statue at its clay feet, reducing the entire effigy to dust."
Seems to work with sand too. Hey, I don't think the ONE is going to make Mount Rushmore.

#9 "Stage that looked like a Greek Temple" > either Atlantis, or Madonna at halftime.
Anything else or in-between is undeniable heresy.

#10 Isn't Algore supposed to have a speech at the DNC convention? Have they insured against freak snowstorms and gale-force winds? What do they say about history? Isn't it that it repeats, the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce? What happens after that? Utter collapse?

#11 An ironic choice of medium I'd say.
