Now that the Republican National Convention is over it’s time for the Democrats to get their convention on in Charlotte. One of the highlights to the RNC, for the Dems at the least, was the scorn they displayed for Clint Eastwood’s performance in which he admonished an imaginary President Obama in an empty chair.
Criticisms have ranged from train wreck to delusional to embarrassing. Personally I found it to be typical political theatrics which no doubt appealed to the GOP faithful while causing Dems to cringe. But this isn’t about my opinion on Eastwood’s performance; it’s about the creepy critiquing the unusual.
The DNC, or some surrogate, has commissioned the creation of a God knows how tall sand sculpture of President Obama on display at the EpiCentre, the site of the convention in Charlotte.
So let’s compare cooky, shall we?
Eastwood talking to an imaginary President Obama.
Here is a shot of the sand sculpture of the President, which I am sure also doubles as an altar for the Democratic devoted.

At first glance it appears as if the DNC is attempting to capture the grandeur of Mt. Rushmore. However, need I remind them that those iconic figures were carved from granite. This one is fittingly shaped out of sand, which was ironically almost washed away by rain, lol!
What’s next? Is the President going to accept his Party’s nomination amidst the backdrop of a Greek temple? Oh wait…
