Republicans Spend $2.5 Million For RNC Stage To Make Romney Look Likeable



Not a party to worry about budgets, apparently, when it comes to overcoming public perception.

The campaign aides are determined to overcome perceptions that Mr. Romney is stiff, aloof and distant. So they have built one of the most intricate set pieces ever designed for a convention a $2.5 million Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired theatrical stage. From its dark-wood finish to the brightly glowing high-resolution screens in the rafters that look like skylights, every aspect of the stage has been designed to convey warmth, approachability and openness.

I'll betcha the GREEK COLUMNS that Obama had in 2008, that the GOPers are still bitchin' about, didn't cost anywhere near that

3. All the money in the world couldn't make him look human

He's more like one of those zombies in The Thriller video.

4. Another case of Republican hypocrisy

They should have just build a circus inside the stadium and put some cages in there. We know several clowns will be attending.

5. On the bright side...

The Convention Center roof is noted for leaking like a seive. There's a hurricane forming in the western Atlantic. Given rMoney's luck so far, his stage might get ruined... or Ryaned... def one of the two.
