DNC Erecting Creepy Giant Obama Sculpture

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. Building a giant sand sculpture of a living leader might be considered a bit tacky with its worshipful implications, but building one during a hurricane in South Carolina is in particularly bad taste.

But if nothing else, at least Obama has found one “Shovel Ready Project”. And this isn’t even the creepiest giant Obama sand sculpture ever made. The winner of that particular competition is still Sudarsan Pattnaik with this nightmare made out of sand.

    It does remind me of Stalin, Lenin,etc. He also has a slogan that Lenin , used in his campaign for premier`Forward`

    Your tax dollars at work.

    Looks more like Al Jolson in blackface from "The Jazz Singer."

    I hope Obama was asked to 'pound it' during the DNC carnival convention where they're going to nominate, for a second time, an ineligible fraud and Communist to run for POTUS.

    This is such a joke! And super symbolic of O-Dumbo and his administration. It's an allusion which is being quickly eroded by the storm. I hear the workers are working feverishly to restore it. One other thing, have you noticed all of the previous dictators have built massive images of themselves……their ego must be on steroids!

    Such irresponsible reporting. DNC didn't even commission this, the chamber of commerce did. It's a promotional gimmick! http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2012/09/03/demo

    Every dictator has large pictorial and graven images of themselves throughout the country over which they control. This proposed dictator will be no different.

    DNC=dialation and curretage ? The Romney/Ryan tidal wave will wash away the Obama sand sculpture. What is really needed is tenting and fumigation of this abominable czar led administration which is determined to eliminate capitalism in favor of socialism with Islam as the only religion in the world. Never have I witnessed such an accumulation of inept, pandering leeches. The real statesmen are turning over in their graves,
