The one thing you can say about the whole Clint Eastwood convention episode is that it will live forever in TV replay-land. 'Doing an Eastwood' might even become a new phrase for being unprepared, for winging it -- badly.

Make My Day, Mitt

I am a big fan of Clint Eastwood. After his appearance at the Republican convention, I imagined what he might do addressing Mitt Romney with an empty chair at the Democratic gathering. While Lloyd Bentsen would say I am no Clint Eastwood, here goes.

The 'Empty Chair' in Tampa Belonged to George W. Bush

N. E. Marsden | Posted 11.05.2012 | Politics
N. E. Marsden

Eastwood's gag dramatically (and some would say brilliantly) turned the spotlight on Obama, while deflecting attention from the president who was missing. After all, Eastwood "talked" to Barack Obama. No one talked to Bush.

Even before she quit, legislators of both parties complained Palin was not sufficiently engaged in the normal day-to-day work a governor does with the legislature. You might say legislators complained about her "empty chair" style of leadership.

Stop The Heterosexual Agenda!

I would like to offer a deal to the GOP. Just stay quiet about your heterosexuality and live your lives, and we will keep mum about our little "gay issues." All you have to do is deny your spouses, your families, and your friends, plus ignore your interests, passions, and entertainments.

Women Shine at the GOP Convention

Mitt Romney badly needed to connect with women at this convention and having Ann Romney, Condoleezza Rice and Susana Martinez speak may have been a step in the right direction. However, none of these women spoke about his policy on women's issues.

Hey You Kids, Get Off of the Republican Party's Lawn

Although it may not be what the convention organizers wanted, the image of an older white man rambling nonsensically about politics, President Obama, and, at times, nothing in particular, while recycling lines from movies from a generation ago, is pretty fitting for today's Republican Party.

Should Obama Do an Invisible Bush Act at the DNC?

It is hard to see that Barack Obama and his political managers will let such an opportunity go untapped. A rebuttal to Clint Eastwood in some form or the other must be expected. It will certainly be one of the high points of the DNC.
