Confused

August 30, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

I am having a hard time deciding who is more confused by Clint Eastwood’s speech – me or Clint.

It’s probably me because Clint is backstage taking a nap and I’m still confused.

I wonder why invisible Obama agreed to sit in that chair?

And, what are the odds that Clint played the drinking game before his speech.

Lastly, when is Marco Rubio going to mention Mitt Romney? Every damn Republican speaker at this convention is running in 2016.

    I stumbled into whatever he was doing after they cut the Texans game off. It was like some weird performance art thing, lots of rambling and halting punctuated by barking at an empty chair to get off his lawn. Whaaaaa?????

  2. Why ate Mitt’s eyelids so pink?

  4. I am so embarrassed for Clint.

  5. Just watched Michael Steele on The Daily Show. I came to the full realization of how crazy and obnoxious the Repug party has become, when you compare the current Priebus guy to Steele. It has shifted drastically just in the last 2 years.
    I am not a huge fan of Steele – but now he seems so……..sane.

  6. Cheryl–I had the same reaction. And Huckaby on Colbert, too…Twilight Zone?

  7. @invisiblechair has over 30,000 followers on twitter just since Clint stopped speaking to it!

    Steele obviously sold his soul for that job. And got burned. It was a really good interview. And says a lot about Steele that he’d go on and give honest feedback. At least it felt honest to me. We might just have to retire that muppet!

    Read that the twitter account #invisibleobama had 20,000 followers in a short period of time last night. I can see Clint calling the White House after his ‘speech’. “Mission accomplished Sir”.

  10. Went to bed with a damn good book and had a hell of a good sleep.

    What we weren’t commenting like we did yesterday?

    Oops sorry. But the book is really good!

    It is sad watching people get old and senile. But if I live long enough it could happen to me. I just hope that when I get loopy I don’t turn into a Republican.

  12. Just saw a clip of Ann Romney on CBS this morning. Asked about Eastwood, she said he is unique, that she was surprised, and that they appreciate his and everyone’s support.
    O.U.C.H. Not the best review he’s ever gotten.

    I watched most of the Convention, and I didn’t see the Trump-Obama Impersonater “you’re fired” skit that must have been scrubbed after the surprise was ruined by the Impersonator’s leak. Was Eastwood the comedy-relief sub? Dramatic irony at its finest.

    From Dirty Harry to drunk Uncle Harry.

  14. Thank god that dog and pony show is over, I can now resume watching TV, and now I can get excited about the dem convention, it will be a wonderful contrast, Clinton, Biden, Obama and Pelosi – what could be better?

    Betty White talking to a matzoh ball?

  16. Things that might be better than Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair:

    ●Jan Brewer talking to a barstool
    ●Fred Thompson talking to a recliner
    ●John McCain talking to a department store mannequin
    (oh wait, he did that with Sarah Palin)

    I’m going to keep an eye on that empty chair in my office this morning, too, just in case @InvisibleObama shows up. Then again, how would I know if he’s there? Spooky…

  17. Continuing on Kellybee’s theme:

    Joseph Smith talking to the rock in the bottom of his hat.

    You might have to do a litle digging to get it, but there is a pretty good summary history on Wikipedia…

  18. I didn’t see Eastwood’s fatal departure from reality but I’ve read enough, heard enough comments about it that I’m really quite glad I missed it! However, I did catch some of Mitt’s speech … I’m still not impressed nor warmed up to him and I never will be. And, of course, Mitt the Twit had to cap off his supposedly awe-inspiring speech by lying about President Obama … they are all so disgusting! I’m with Juanita Jean … I hate them all and I hate what they will do to this country if they ever get in the White House and I hate the fact that so many people are falling for their lies and disgusting rhetoric!
    I hate the word “hate” but these folks just bring out worst feelings imaginable in me!!

    Thinking the chair was confused. Probably was never directly addressed in it’s life…

  20. John Wayne? Oh, no!
    Charton Heston? Oh, no!
    Ronald Reagan? Oh, no!
    Clint Eastwood? Yea! He’s alive!
    Sort of.

  21. Bizarre just bizarre, One more reason Hollywood should avoid politics altogether.

  22. TexasEllen says:

    Whoever scheduled the Clint Eastwood embarrassment rather than the glossy bioflick to open the final (and live on broadcast networks) hour is the slickest, sickest Democratic operative ever. It amounted to elder abuse, humiliation of a potential first lady, prime placement of the batshit crazy, and a morning devoted to the debacle instead of Romney.

  23. @TexasEllen: Yup. It was just perfect!

  24. Found this quote on Daily Kos about Clint Eastwood’s “speech”:

    Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt said he was “Referring all questions on this to Salvador Dali.”

    LOL. Still giggling!

  25. publius bolonius says:

    Kellybee, I’m with you. I’ve got a right comfy spot set aside on my all-leather sofa and a small reserved sign just in case Invisible Obama shows up. Salvador Dali says, “WTF?”.

  26. Kate oDubhagain says:

    Eastwood was so sad. I couldn’t watch bear watching his “speech.”

  27. Umptydump says:

    The Dems need to edit together a tape of “The Republicans’ Finest Moments” from this spring’s campaign and play it for the crowd next week at their convention in Charlotte. Eastwood – star that he is – certainly deserves a key role, but let’s not forget tapes of “birther” Donald Trump and everyone’s favorite gun-totin’ draft evader – Ted Nugent. Casting call is coming soon! Any other applicants?

  28. I am so saddened by Clint Eastwood. He’s done such good work during his life. Now he’ll be remembered for this. He should have stayed retired.

    @TexasEllen, you are so right. That was quite possibly the most elegant black bag job in US political history.

  31. The best review IMHO was done by Michael Moore

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/08/31/michael-moore-on-clint-eastwood-s-delusional-and-detached-from-reality-speech-at-the-republican-national-convention.html

    he nailed it, read the link and see if you agree, summed up the GOP attitude perfectly.

  32. Re Eastwood, I don’t think it was invisible Obama in that chair. It was probably the Prophet Elijah.
