Clint Eastwood Talked To A Seat Before!
Before he made a spectacle of himself by talking to an empty chair that symbolized Obama at the Republican National Convention, screen legend Clint Eastwood had already filmed a similar scene.
A dry run, as it were.
A friend of mine from WBAI tells me that in the new film Trouble With The Curve, Clint plays an old codger who has trouble with the bodily functions.
And he talks to the toilet bowl about it!
"I'm sorry about my kidneys," Clint says, comically.
"They're not working very well."
Let's hope that at the second debate, Obama's seat is filled with a little more energy this time, or the whole country will surely spiral into the crapper.
