Mr. Sandman, Bring Me A Dream


A Little Traveling Music, Please… (h/t: Jackie Gleason)

Mr. Sandman: The Chordettes

So let me see if I’ve got this straight: we made fun of Clint, butt this, this is considered…high art?


Apparently the giant sand sculpture of Big Guy commissioned for the opening of the DNC was damaged by a strong storm that blew in from out of nowhere.

So let me just ask the Big Brains orchestrating the optics of this year’s convention: what on earth were you thinking? The DNC OWNS irony, and you totally MISS the burlesque inherent in building your icon out of sand? I give up.

Is our education system so broken that nobody in the  chain of command at the DNC saw that a reference to heroes with feet of clay was one thing, butt throwing in a whole statue made of sand and clay made it into something else altogether?

“This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.”
Daniel 2:31-33)
”And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.”(Daniel 2:41-43)

A divided kingdom!?? “Partly strong, and partly broken!?”  Under the first Post Modern, Post Partisan, Post Racial  President? While ironic, I don’t think that’s even funny.

I don’t think even Clint Eastwood could make it funny.

Besides, the sand sculpture is just creepy. Did they hire the same artist who “restored” that Spanish fresco?

USA/Or just some partisan hack who dabbles in the arts?

Furthermore, I thought Team-O learned their lesson about building things out of sand with the GM and Chrysler bailouts.

Things built of sand tend not to last; falling victim to either the winds of sea-change:

Maybe I’m just overreacting. Everyone else around here seems to think we’ve got this thing in the bag:

“I don’t want you to leave here thinking I’ve got my feet up on my f------ desk and I’m sanguine,” Axelrod says after a 51-minute interview in which he surveys the landscape and finds nothing but roses for Obama and thorns for GOP nominee Mitt Romney. “I’m not! I treat this as a struggle to the end, and we’re going to fight that way.”

What’s with everyone wanting to stick their feet on the furniture around here?

Anyway, I’m just saying, if you believe in omens, a big wind knocking your icon made in sand over just before your national convention is probably not a good one.

What do I know though? I’m not one of the really Big Brains around here.

Butt how smart do you have to be to know that a big wind or a big wave can wipe away your footsteps in the sand?
