Wordless Wednesday: The Great Projector of Presidential Debates

The Zeiss Mark VI Projector
I visited Adler Planetarium and got a shot of the infamous "overhead projector" Senator McCain mentioned in Presidential Debate #2. Can't wait for tonight's Debate.

That's an interesting shot. I will be watching the debate too although I'm already sure I'll vote for Obama. Sometimes I think I watch both party's conventions and then the debates just to get my blood pressure up.

DNLee said...

haha. me, too I think. It's like a soap opera for the nerdy.

Looks to me like he could find something a bit more important to fixate on.

You might want to stop over at Smarmoofus Spot tonight at 9... she's hosting a "debate party" again... the last two were pretty neat.

Keith said...

Wow! Now that's what I call being an intrepid reporter. So this is the projector that has McCain all lathered up, eh?

Gattina said...

No comment, lol ! I live in Belgium.

Happy WW! I imagine that the number of visits and website hits for this science facility went up exponentially after last week's debate...

Thanx for your earlier visit! I invite your blog readers to see how bi-partisanship could work if we simply had a common purpose.

peace, Villager

Happy WW! Frankly, I'm a little nervous about the debate. I've read that McCain is planning to go negative and try to get Obama all flustered.

I haven't watched any of them yet. Too stressful. I just read about it afterwards.

Great shot. I wasn't aware of the furore over the planetarium. McCain sounded pretty stupid in mmy view.

Ken said...

Quick, send it to huffington post or maybe Keith Olbermann :-). That's awesome.

DNLee said...

I'll try.

Not quite the one-bulb, two-mirror thing we're used to in the classroom! That's funny.

(PS Don't know if that image was of Talib Kweli!)

Toia said...

Nice.....You are too funny. Looking at your pic makes me feel smart all over again. LOL!!!

napaboaniya said...

Funny shot with hilarious caption to it! ;)

I'm a little late for WW, but guess what -- McCain DID bring up the projector again in tonight's debate. Hah! Very prescient of you to post this for WW this week. ;-}

Stan said...

Yes, McCain did do the projector thing again, but he probably doesn't understand what these things do anyway.

lareine said...

i didn't see the debate but the projector seems original to me :)... well, good luck to all US citizens for this coming election...

by the way, thanks for the visit and your header banner is perfect for your blog title :)

DNLee said...

jams: yeah Mccain is all twisted about it.

Toia: thanks.

Stan: I think you're right on. he's really uninformed about the device. He needs better advisers on science matters/funding i think

lariene: thanks, I've been trying for an appropriate photo for a while. The next challenge is to get a good pic for each season.

Thanks everyone for visiting. next week's WW photo theme is BLUR. I've got one ready for it.
