Clint Eastwood's chair bit the most memorable part of RNC

 |  NCR Today

The news media are saying that Clint Eastwood's Aug. 30 "talk" at the Republican National Convention was weird. They say the campaign must have been fretting. I actually thought the chair was brilliant. Once you realize Clint was speaking without a script and maybe having some senior moments, that he regrouped and brought in the chair -- it was just sitting there; organizers must have put there in case he couldn't stand. If Clint had them set the stage like this, well, he's a really smart guy. Yes, it was a little risqué, a little too long. Still, the chair was genius.

In case you missed the presentation:

You don't bring in someone of Clint's stature and then complain.

Then someone just posted this picture as a reply. The chair might be the single thing we remember from the Republican National Convention.
