Myrtle Beach is about two hours away and they’re putting a lot of money into promoting it during the convention. The sand is from there. The MB Visitors And Convention Bureau no doubt is funding the thing.

From their point of view, it was a surefire promotion, to score some tourism dollars from this national event and to gain recall and future tourist dollars for their efforts. It is a sand sculpture, beachy.

Somebody is not very good at stepping out of their own shoes and recognizing bad semiotics, though. All sorts of negative associations that blew right past them.

Now, the remnants of Isaac, what a name to get the tongues wagging even more about the Biblical symbolism, are blowing in and washing it away. Isaac, a storm that made landfall seven years to the day from Katrina, laying waste to a sand idol. I can see why people might attribute larger significance to this, it’s really sort of uncanny.

And then there’s the poor sap just trying to promote Myrtle Beach wondering whatt the heck is going on, lol.

The chin is too low. Needs to be raised much much higher to get the real feel of O.

I googled "SAND SCULPTURE", and aside from this particular one, there another sand thingy of him that was near a hotel -- that was removed 2 days ago, because of security problems.

http://www.wbtv.com/story/19417349/giant-dnc-sand-sculpture-taken-down-for-security-reasons-hotel-says

I hope he keeps this sort of thing up. It is so telling!

16-foot-high work of art outside the Blackfinn Saloon

that Saloon is racist.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Here are the FIVE dishiest things – DNC-wise – we heard about Thursday:

• 1. Word is that the Veep – aka Joe Biden – may be staying in an Eastover estate next week.

He’ll be motorcading his way to BofA Stadium on Thursday night, when he’ll speak before POTUS.

• 2. A slew of celebs are confirmed for the three VIP events sponsored by the Creative Coalition, an advocacy group for the entertainment biz. Among the attendees: Patricia Arquette, Alfre Woodard, John Leguizamo, Beau Bridges, Rose Byrne, Tim Daly and Tony Shalhoub.

But our fav: Wayne Knight, Seinfeld’s nemesis on THE greatest of sitcoms. Say it with me: “Hello, Newman.”

• 3. “The Daily Show” has decided on a theme for its shows at Charlotte’s ImaginOn. Ready? “DNC 2012: Hope and Change 2.”

• 4 . “Hug-A-Thug,” the N.C. AFL-CIO is calling it. On Labor Day, at uptown’s CarolinaFest, union members will give out free hugs – the tongue-in-cheek “thug” label is meant to break down stereotypes of union members.

• 5. This from our wacky neighbors in that other Carolina: VisitMyrtleBeach.com had 15.5 tons of S.C. sand dropped at the EpiCentre this week.

No, not for the protesters. For “Team Sandtastic” – four sand sculptors who will create a 16-foot-high work of art outside the Blackfinn Saloon that sponsors say will be “mighty presidential.”

That can’t be real? If it is the democrats need to say a prayer of thanksgiving the scupture won’t be on display. It exceeds even the greek columns for sheer comedy value.

Elsie Davis of Charlotte, 55, waited in line for seven hours last weekend to get tickets for the president’s speech and came to the arena preview tour. “It’s amazing that we can just come in here,” she said. “It’s like we’re a part of it.” Charlotte resident Sheila Cummings agreed. “To know I can look at the TV and say I was there ... it’s amazing,” she said.

Seriously? These idiots are still worshiping and glorifying this jackass Obama as if he represents something bigger than themselves?

... our wakcy neighbors in that other Carolina

Variously known as Baja Carolina or Carolina Junior. There's a rivalry and a little bad blood, historically speaking. Eyebrows were raised and some weren't pleased to see Myrtle Beach attempting to piggyback upon this.

This is what I don’t understand.

In the last election with all the Obama t-shirts, posters with his face etc..., I felt as though I was living in a 3rd rate, 3rd world dictatorship.

Did they not understand how creepy this is? It’s like Saddam Hussein, Joseph Stalin, (fill in the black with your favorite dictator).

I refuse to ever worship a human being.

To continue with the play on words. Remember the John Wayne film, “The Sands of Iwo Jima”? The Charlotte convention could be called “The Sands of Obama Jumah” (Jumah, the DNC-sanctioned day of prayer yesterday ... that was also a wash-out).
