Trouble with the chair: Clint mocked for RNC bit

Clint Eastwood at the RNC

Clint Eastwood earned plenty of bad reviews for his latest performance: a bizarre, rambling endorsement of Mitt Romney. "Clint, my hero, is coming across as sad and pathetic," tweeted film critic Roger Ebert as Eastwood ad-libbed Thursday night to an audience of millions - and one empty chair - on stage at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. "He didn't need to do this to himself. It's unworthy of him."

Senh: Dang, don't you hate it when one of your favorite actors/directors goes out and does something as weird and crazy as this. Oh well, I'll still watch his movies. Still a fan. I don't think this worked out quite the way the Republicans had hoped for. It's also not as bad as the media made it out to be.

I'm guessing that this Mitt Romney speech came right after Clint Eastwood's. And judging by the number views, no one gives a shit.

Here's Ann Romney's response to Eastwood's bizarre introduction.
