A Monument of Sand

This is being built for the Democratic Convention, and it very much symbolizes everything Barack Obama is about:

Obama made of sand(H/t Dan Riehl)

It reminds me of Ozymandias, by Percy Bysshe Shelley:

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away”.

Except, in Obama’s case, not even two trunkless legs of stone will remain when the final history is recorded.

    Reblogged this on Unearthing the Truth and commented:
    This is spot on! The Obama sand sculpture at the DNC is simply a symbol of our president’s narcissism.

    And his character is about as solid as his sand castle. I am reminded of the scripture where Jesus warns us not to build our house (country) on shifting sands

    Ohhh the Pretentiousness and Narcissism shines through little grains of sand…It has been and will be about HIM…Not US
    In order to ‘keep it together’ that sand is ALL WET!
    The Nation is ready for a nice long dose of some well deserved R and R! Obamanation can skulk off to whatever State will take him…Most of the folk in Chicago don’t want him back!
