Sand Sculpture of President Obama Washed Away in Charlotte, N.C. … Metaphor? Hmm, Looks More Like Jabba the Hut
Metaphor Alert: Democrats might as well get used to it … Obama sand sculpture washed away.
Talk about creepy. Who actually thought this was a good idea? It’s bad enough this sand Obama makes the presumption of a Mount Rushmore type sculpture, but damn, this creepy thing looks more like Jabba the Hut. Barack Obama is going to have more to worry about than getting washed away by bad weather in NC, losing North Carolina in the 2012 Presidential election for starters.
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.
Unfortunately, as every child who’s spent a day at the beach well knows, sand castles–or cult-of-personality-worthy sand statues–aren’t known for their water resistance. And it rains during the summertime in North Carolina. Sometimes a lot.
