    Default Looky what showed up on Mt. Rushmore today

    President Obama got his face on Mount Rushmore this morning, but not necessarily in a good way.

    Rock climbers from Greenpeace evaded security at Mount Rushmore National Memorial Wednesday and hung the 65-foot by 35-foot banner, which hung for a few minutes to the side of Abraham Lincoln’s head.


    The banner featured an unfinished portrait of the Obama with the message, "America honors leaders not politicians: Stop Global Warming,” according to a news release from the organization.

    The demonstration comes as President Obama meets other G8 leaders in L'Aquila, Italy today to discuss the global warming crisis in the lead-up to UN climate treaty negotiations in Copenhagen this December.

    The banner came down after a few minutes, according to video broadcast live online by Greenpeace, either cut away by park workers or knocked away by the wind. But the banner hung on for a few additional minutes before falling away from the giant sculptures.
