Republicans have their heads in the sand in S.C.

You've got to wonder if the artists behind the sand-sculpture heads of Republican candidates outside the Myrtle Beach Convention Center are showing their preferences for this Saturday's GOP primary in South Carolina. While Mike Huckabee looks perfectly presentable, Mitt Romney seems caught in mid-grimace, Rudy Giuliani's teeth are the size of New Hampshire, and Ron Paul looks a lot like Pat Robertson.

The sculptures were created for the Jan. 10 GOP debate there, but one shot of the installation seems to suggest the make-or-break nature of the Jan. 16 primary for Fred Thompson, who, as the Wall Street Journal says, has "fizzled" in all previous contests. From the looks of it, he's being... buried alive.
