Obama: The Sandman President
Theme Song: Mr. Sandman by the Chordettes, 1954:
There may be more than one. :)
No roof on Bank of America stadium.
88 degrees and thunderstorms for the 'big day'. Bummer.
I guess their Big Tent sprung a leak, fitting..
That’s hysterical!! I just stole it.
We used to sing it at summer camp.
Ain’t that a beach.
OUT.STANDING news ! !
Maybe I should hang an empty suit on the railing for a special effect.
Another Obama pail-and-shovel-ready jobs program.
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.
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.
I hope he keeps this sort of thing up. It is so telling!
Oh my God.... I’m laughing so much at this. Good job!!!
OOPS! My link didn’t do the link thing. Can anyone help?
Ooosh that thing is hideous anyway. Who are the idiots who constantly have the urge to make this man into some God-like figure with these big sculptures and Greek columns.
What a joke.
Never heard that song before but I LOVE it. You should post it on Facebook for all to like, share and enjoy. I’m keeping it. Thank you.
