Well that was disappointing…

… I went Uptown last night to check out the vibe as Charlotte prepares for the DNC. I was expecting (oh, I don’t know) maybe something a little grander than this…

A poorly made sand sculpture of Obama.

Charlotte was a ghost town. I saw two drunk women staggering down the street and a homeless guy playing the bongos. Actually, he may have just been a remnant from Occupy Charlotte. That was it.

What is the feeling in the city right now? Discontent and aggravation. Many businesses and restaurants Uptown have simply shut up shop. Security and road closures are making it next to impossible for locals to get around and conduct business. People are being told to work from home, or leave town. Last night confirmed the mass exodus. Irony Alert: Business owners shutting down and losing money while the president makes campaign promises to help the economy and increase jobs.

Stay tuned as I drive around Charlotte in my car covered with Romney stickers, aiming to misbehave.

As for that sand sculpture. I can’t put my finger on it. It needs… something.

Ah, there we go. Much better.

Thanks Colin and John. You guys are the best.

    I wonder if the same thing happened in Tampa.

      If it had, we would have heard about it in every single newscast from the RNC until Doomsday.

    Why does the sand sculpture of Obama have no neck? And why are the ears so small?

    A monument in SAND to the least President of the United States. How apt.

    Liberal Idolatry. Where’s his teleprompter? Puppet strings, maybe? Ehh, 10 seconds with a garden hose would end the foolishness.

    The Democrats have finally gotten the mood of the American public. An ugly, oversized portrait of the President which, like his many promises, has fallen apart at the slightest exposure to reality. That, plus the empty chair, tells you how this electorate sees the President.

    At least they know what the election is about. Good call, Dems.
