In South Carolina, it's not just Republicans who have been bashing each other lately. Local Democrats picked up pink shovels and took a whack at a sand sculpture of six GOP hopefuls that had been erected at Myrtle Beach.

With the South Carolina primary over, a Democratic women's group used pink shovels Monday to begin dismantling the sand sculpture depicting the Republican contenders. The sculpture was a prominent feature of the GOP debate Jan. 16 and took more than 700,000 pounds of sand to make.

A bulldozer finished the demolition job Monday as the women in yellow hard hats cheered. The sand is to be recycled into future sculptures.

The women won the right to demolish the sculpture after making a donation to a local crime-fighting cause.
