Doing just fine: Sand Obama intact despite rumors of demolition


We’re awaiting confirmation from the @SandObama Twitter account, who last posted 21 hours ago from his giant litter box outside the EpiCenter in Charlotte, N.C., where he’ll simultaneously greet and creep out delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

While word of Sand Obama’s demise quickly spread across the Internet, reports now confirm that it was another giant, 12-ton sand sculpture, this one in front of the Ritz-Carlton hotel, that was demolished for unspecified security reasons. And so our very brief national nightmare comes to a close.

Just clarifying for everyone, report of removal of Sand Obama is wrong, as far as we can tell at moment! Still up.

@hboulware the original Sand Obama was halted in front of Ritz Carlton. New one erected at the EpiCentre. This is confirmed. @Nickarama1

@sistertoldjah I honestly cannot believe we are discussing a Sand Obama, much less it's location. Surreal. @Nickarama1

So, it sounds like the Obama sand monument is staying put. Good! I want the left to be held accountable for this. #tcot #p2

Some media outlets are reporting that heavy rains in Charlotte have damaged the sculpture, but in any case, get your digs in while you can. It’ll be gone a week from now, and you won’t have Giant Sand Obama to kick around anymore!

I think it's telling that the sculpture of Obama is made of something so strong and permanent and stable. Like sand.

Rumor has it that Chris Matthews has already snatched up some sand from the Obama sand sculpture to rub on his leg.

Fake styrofoam columns, sand statues, a divided nation, and a permanent $5.5 trillion mountain of new debt. The Obama years in a nutshell.

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the moment Sand Obama met Invisible Obama, also known as the empty chair. Congratulations: you have reached the end of the Internet.

@InvisibleObama, meet @SandObama. #VoteMyrtle #DNC2012 #captureDNC pic.twitter.com/oqJW3Jaw
