Americans have Mount Rushmore; moonbats have Mount Obama. Or at least they did briefly:
A torrential downpour that struck Charlotte on 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 large Mount 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.
Nothing could be more emblematic of the transitory nature of the hyped-up fad formerly known as Hope & Change. If only the damage caused by the nauseating farce could be as short-lived.
Rumors that the Star Trek character Tomalak was the actual model for the sand sculpture could not be confirmed.
