Rains wash away Mount Obama in Charlotte, N.C
Washington Times ^ | 9/1/2012 | Stephan Dinan

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A torrential downpour that struck Charlotte Saturday afternoon damaged the Mount Rushmore-style sand sculpture bust of President Obama — an ominous beginning to what many fear is a plagued convention.

Workers were trying Saturday afternoon to reform the base of the sculpture, built from sand brought in from Myrtle Beach, S.C., pounding and smoothing out the sand that had washed off the facade.

For some reason, Muddy Waters comes to mind. ‘Charlottetown Blues?’

“...workers were pounding...sand”
How appropriate!

That’s just so horrible in so many ways. It’s so bad that it could almost be a gift from the GOP. It would be great if the workers were wearing Romney T-shirts.

Sand sculpture? So are these the shovel-ready jobs that were promised?

I find it absolutely sickening, that in this country, in this day and age, so many people would succumb to a cult of personality, like Obama. The fact that his Image is being used like that, when I visited 2nd world sh*tholes around the world, thats how campaigns were waged, with images of the person. I dont recall the last time a persons image was used to such an extent here.. maybe I am wrong, but I get that sick feeling that my country is going down that route.

LOL. What’s that song kids used to sing at church about building a house on the sand and the wise man built a house on a rock? Anyone know what I’m talking about?

“You know if they had something like that for Romney - the Vaginas would have been all over it.”

Good thing they never did that for Clinton! (doesn’t matter which Clinton, either!/s;)
