#InsertChair – Obama Now Identified as “Empty Seat” through Eastwood Magic

Dear Readers: The ultra-liberal, ex-hippie Divine Mother left town today, so this afternoon was the first opportunity to savor some of the Alinksy-tactic goodness now being utilized by RomneyRyan2012. I had only heard a few comments about Clint Eastwood’s speech last night — but the lefty derision and snark clued me in that Eastwood’s remarks had put a big Daisy-cutter into the heart various media narratives.
Eastwood did not receive Oscars for Unforgiven or Million Dollar Baby by being stupid about either messaging or imagery. He had to know exactly how the teleprompter-in-front-of-empty-chair would be taken by the audience last night. There is no political consultant out there who could have come-up with this brilliance.
