President Obama met bizarre with brilliant, crude with classy last night after Clint Eastwood’s strange speech to the Republican National Convention. Eastwood’s “conversation” with an empty chair, supposedly housing a swearing Barack Obama, was met with the above photo sent via Twitter by the Obama Campaign, just two hours after the amazingly asinine attempt at absurdity.

The photo is of President Obama in his chair at a White House Cabinet meeting, his back to the camera, the small bronze plate reads, “The President.”
Eastwood, though a personal friend of Mitt Romney, has lived a life in direct opposition to what the GOP platform demands, making his choice as the RNC “mystery speaker” an equally bizarre one.
