Forget about the great speeches given by Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio or even Newt and Calista Gingrich! Everyone is talking about the Clint Eastwood speech featuring an empty chair, representing an invisible Barack Obama. The stunt has even led to a new term, Eastwooding, as people post pictures on the Internet of empty chairs. Eastwood was brought in as a ′mystery guest′ speaker. A good deal of buzz was created and we were all eager to see Clint hammer away at Obama in true Dirty Harry fashion. But after a lame version of the theme from the film, ″The Good, The Bad and The Ugly″, we instead got Eastwood the comedian. Not that such is all bad, Clint is a funny guy. Who else gets laughs from mere facial contortions as he squints, glares and scowls? You ca watch the video of Clint Eastwood and the empty chair below.
