Natural sand formations in the form of Republican Party leaders just don’t show up on the beach every day.

Peter immediately interpreted his discovery as a sign from God: Either Mitt Romney or Ron Paul will defeat Barack Obama in 2012 to be the next president of the United States.

Based on Sand Romney’s creepy Jim Carrey-like facial expressions, we’re not sure if we should be more scared of him or more scared of the kooky Libertarian.

Truth be told, the Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce commissioned sand sculptures of all the Republican and Democratic candidates for president, displaying them in majestic Mount Rushmore fashion before the 2008 South Carolina Primary debates:
