I like the empty chair..snicker snicker..
And so castles made of sand melt into the sea, eventually—Jimi Hendrix
They loaded 15 tons of sand from there.
Sing it Mr Cash.
You Load 16 tons
Hey,let’s build a sand castle outside, what could possibly go wrong?
Sort of a giant etch-a-sketch.
And rain, in North Carolina...no one could see that one coming.
That is funny right there LOL. These morons that erect idols to this doofus are the epitome of lunatic fringe.
I’m slow -— LOVE the teleprompter. LOL!!
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.
Obama's breakfast mounting obama's dinner. Needs garlic.
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.
Hell be motorcading his way to BofA Stadium on Thursday night, when hell 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, Seinfelds 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 Charlottes ImaginOn. Ready? DNC 2012: Hope and Change 2.
4 . Hug-A-Thug, the N.C. AFL-CIO is calling it. On Labor Day, at uptowns 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.
We could care less about Sand Obama. HOW IS THE CHAIR?
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.
Where on Facebook?
I heard that song in Sunday School in the early 70’s.
Well......so much for shovel ready jobs.
Guess that makes Obama 1 ton shy of a full load. I always knew there was something wrong with the guy.
Actually, Tennessee Ernie Ford did the famous version...
The Democrats have got to be running out of piles of sh*t to step in...
So, you want to be the one who tells Obie ?; “we better not do that bigger-than-life sand sculpture of you. “
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).
lolol *snicker snicker*
