Damn you Simpsons!
Why must you prefigure everything in life?
Why did you think of an old man yelling at a chair, but now doing it on the highest and most visible of stages, the Republican National Convention?
"The Simpsons already did it!" Indeed....
How did The Simpsons know just how loony Republicans are going to get, even having once-proud but now dazed/confused actors #Eastwooding, ranting at...an invisible chair?
Yup, in case you were sleeping last night, there was one of the proud actors of the last forty years, having a total Mel Gibson moment.
It was a combination of funny, sad, amusing, and nonsensical, watching Clint Eastwood having a rambling conversation with… a chair.
The chair was supposed to represent President Obama.
The Obama campaign, not missing a beat, responded with a simple but powerful Tweet: “This seat’s taken.”
And poor, poor Mitt. Outdone by Obama, even when Obama is invisible (and not really there).
