The well scripted GOP conventions was going so well till someone dropped the ball or was it the other way around where Clint Eastwood drop the ball on the Romney camp.
Republicans envious that the Democrats had George Clooney so when Clint Eastwood appeared they grabbed the chance so show the world that the Republican- Hollywood did exist. TWELVE MINUTES after the Hollywood icon spoke they were rethinking the UN-vetted actor as the next day no one even remembered Romeny's speech and the twitter lines and social media was lit with .....what the hell was that?

    There are far worse things to be remembered for by future generations.
    To answer your question what the hell this was: Conservatives sat down and listened to one of America's elders. They do that occasionally. Progressives, on the other hand, responded by doing what they do best: They ridiculed older generations and their stuffy ideals of responsibility, success through honest work, family values and patriotism, all these horribly outdated concepts that stand in the way of so-called progress.

    Personally, I think that older generations can still teach young gung-ho progressives a thing or two. For example, they could teach all the young, cynical journalists and bloggers who called Mr. Eastwood doting and deranged that debates with an empty chair are not quite as new as they seem to think. Older people might remember the televised debate between Senator Kenneth Keating and an empty chair with Robert F. Kennedy's nameplate in 1964, which the American historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. called an "ancient device":





    It's interesting that the media didn't make fun of Sen. Keating back then. Nobody called him crazy, deluded or pathetic. Well, I guess that's progress for you. I should probably add "civility" and "respect for one's elders" to my list of outdated ideals that have no pla...

    Not real sure this choice of answers is somewhat baited or just plain confusing. I think Eastwoods speech was the icing on the cake for Romney and the crumbs on the floor for o'idiot.

    How does one 'end' a legacy? That doesn't even make sense.

    Eastwood's bit was a great addition to dozens of excellent speeches, putting a little humor into the mix and got the Dem's panties way up in there, flossing their cracks.

    The DNC lineup will be a menagerie of mishaps and mayhem, desperately trying to place focus on social awareness and staying as far from 0bie's pathetic record and economy as possible. The backslapping media will fall in line with gratuitous Tweets and endless articles of praise and admiration.
    But as the Mt. Rushmore-ish 0bozo sand sculpture begins to crumble, the lights and glitter fade,..... he will still have to face his dismal economy and disastrous record.
