Rains wash away Mount Obama in Charlotte, N.C.
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 of the waist-up rendering of the chief executive.
The sand sculpture was protected from above, and Mr. Obama's face didn't see too much damage. But the storm was so strong that its heavy winds blew the rain sideways, pelting the president's right side and leaving the sand pockmarked and completely erasing his right elbow.

About as substantial as a sand castle — yup. Whose idiotic idea was this.

That statue is f-in weird and creepy. Commissioned by his “humbleness” I'm sure.
Gee, it looks like his base is crumbling there.

Ugh. If North Koreans made such a hideous sculpture of their own “Dear Leader” Kim Jong Un, they would be executed. Honest opinion. That looks like crap.
Oh dear. We need to be worried when we see large guillotines and booths set up for receiving a “vetting mark” near the arenas. I hope nobody spots smoke coming from the Obama statue’s azz.

“Pounding and smoothing out the sand...”

(What would Selco do?)
Dang. I don’t know whose idea that was (Debbie Wasserman-Shultz?) but it sure is cheap and creepy looking...
