Even with a screwed-up computer, you didn’t think I could pass up commenting on the Rethuglican National Convention, did you, kids? How hilarious was it that Clint Eastwood’s chair was less wooden that Mittsie?
From the Chicago Tribune:
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Months of careful planning for the Republican National Convention were hijacked by actor Clint Eastwood as traditional and social media erupted in a frenzy of scratched heads and parodies that experts said largely overshadowed presidential contender Mitt Romney’s moment in the spotlight.
Eastwood’s rambling, unscripted address at Thursday’s convention to an absent President Barack Obama in an empty chair inspired an instant satirical Twitter account, @InvisibleObama, that quickly went viral, demonstrating the power of social media to upset tightly scripted image control.
