    Forget the marble pillars, this time there will be a giant 16-foot sculpture of Obama made out of 15.5 tons of sand at the Democratic National Convention. Read & Comment

    A massive sand sculpture of Barack Obama intended to greet attendees of the DNC convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, was damaged by a torrential downpour Saturday afternoon, the Washington Times reported.

    The Times called the damage to the Mount Rushmore-style sand sculpture "an ominous beginning to what many fear is a plagued convention."

    While the sculpture's face didn't receive any damage, the giant bust's right side was pelted with sideways rain and the right elbow was completely erased.

    "The large Rushmore-style sculpture drew comparisons to Mr. Obama's 2008 convention in Denver, when he accepted his party's nomination on a stage that looked like a Greek temple," the Times added.


    :cool:.... Jerbear

    I see this as a forerunner to what we can expect to see if he is re-elcted. look for Obama statues being erected throughout our country a la Stalin, Saddam, etc. Expect a giant statue in D.C. maybe in Chicago. Those statues won't be made of sand either. Break 'em all! Tom Ruble

    Actually, I thought the rain made a big improvement. It kinda looked like Jabba the Hut afterward... which pretty much fits. They should leave it this way! Mike

    All of a sudden, I realized that it looks like a cartoon character version of the Chinese version of the Motten Loofa Keen statue.

    Win or lose Obama wont possibly any worse than what may come one day with Md's Gov. Martin O'Malley...they are putting his lying puss in front of every camera the Dems can find to smooch BO's behind along with every special interest and minority while trying to convince us everything is still Bushs fault...Beware this man : he has taxed Md to death and is liberal to the extreme while claiming otherwise...pay close attention to this mans doubletalk so the rest of you all can see what the future holds from commyland

    Several things come to my mind. Could this be his shovel ready project? Or maybe it's Budda or maybe Jabba The Hut or maybe------ Dave
