More About An Empty Chair
So, The Blog admits that he is weirdly obsessed with last night's Clint Eastwood, RNC appearance.
I know, I know! The Blog has promised a well thought out commentary about the pattern of Republican presidential candidates over the last three decades.
The Blog promises that that post is half written and residing on his hard drive, to be finished and posted soon. Assuming that nothing so bizarre comes up again in the next day or two.
But, The Blog has realized something about the Eastwood appearance.
Clint's RNC appearance is the most appropriate representation of the Republican position about Barrack Obama since the 2008 campaign.
An old, rich, white guy, arguing against an imaginary version of Barrack Obama.
Ever since the 2008 campaign, The Republican party have chosen to argue against an imaginary, invisible, Obama straw man. An "elitist" (pretty rich, coming from the party of Willard "Mitt" Romney) who is, in reality, a centrist, moderate, all too willing to compromise with the extremist opposition.
The Blog hopes that Obama will win the 2012 election and, as a "lame duck" give a great big "fuck you" to the Republican obstructionists who stand in the way of America's forward movement.
That is how The Blog sees it. That is all for tonight.
