Skip to comments.Obama, Man of Sand, Washed Away In a Sea-Change!

So let me see if Ive got this straight: we made fun of Clint, butt this, this is considered high art?
Apparently the giant sand sculpture of Big Guy commissioned for the opening of the DNC was damaged by a strong storm that blew in from out of nowhere...
I dont think even Clint Eastwood could make it funny.
Besides, the sand sculpture is just creepy. Did they hire the same artist who restored that Spanish fresco?
Or just some partisan hack who dabbles in the arts?
Anyway, Im just saying, if you believe in omens, a big wind knocking your icon made in sand over just before your national convention is probably not a good one.
What do I know though? Im not one of the really Big Brains around here.
As a great storm gathers on the horizon, the lifeguard chair remains unmanned...

The top tube on the bike Obama was riding wasn’t so straight.
Wait for it...
... pun intended
Slip Slidin' Away
Castles made of Sand
What rational thinking American would have anything made of sand at his political convention?
An ideal RNC add could be a series of pictures of the sand image being made, washing partly away, and then being repaired. Loop this a couple of times with some music from the 50s dealing with dreams made of sand. Nothing else other than the closure stating who paid for the add.
The King of Sand.
And when Obama walks on stage they should play Enter Sandman by Metallica....LOL!
The Crack Pot Party....or just The Pot Party
Another fitting tribute to the King of Sand from Mr. Johnny Cash R.I.P.
When I first heard about the sand sculpture, I really thought it was satire and photo shopped.
I still can’t believe they are doing this.
But I also think that this is not a good likeness of Obama. It looks more like a cartoon character.
You mean this one, “Mr. Sandman” by The Chordettes? It even has “BAM”, as in OBAMA, in the lyrics with little lyric bubbles over the singers’ mouths!
Just like the Bible tells us - sand and empty chairs make lousy foundations...
Ha! You beat me by seconds.
I can’t believe it either, their stupidity and arrogance are really burning through.
And it isn’t a good likeness off him, because Obama doesn’t smile. His lips are always taught, tense or pursed, as if he is constantly annoyed.
Even his sculptors do not know who he is.
Can someone go up to Zero and dump a bucket of water on him
to get it over.......
‘The foolish man built his walls upon the sand,
and the walls came tumbling down.’
Sand face and empty chair - it’s O in a nutshell.
Ha, I’m sorry! As another FReeper suggested, I think this video and music, cut with scenes of the storm washing away the Obama sand sculpture, could be a very funny political ad.
“Please, turn on your magic beam...” might cut to that awful creepy grin of his. A digital genius could make the sand wash away more dramatically. He is “the Sandman”, basing his “dream” for America on nothing more than subterfuge and sand.
.....and the reality..
That “sculpture” looks more like Papa Doc.
Also, I am reminded of the scripture that says. . .”but the foolish man built his house upon the sand. When the storms came the house fell flat”.
May this be a portent of Obama’s immediate political future.
