Clint Eastwood delivered one of the most effective “speeches” in recent political history at the 2012 Republican National Convention. Of course, it wasn’t a real speech, but a devastatingly funny standup comedy routine. Although the delivery was a bit wobbly at first, it destroyed every rationale the average, non-ideological American voter could have for giving Barack Obama a second term in the White House.
On Sunday’s broadcast of Italian Tomatoes on Blog Talk Radio*, we take a structured look at this work of art and why it is so effective. And for proof positive, remember that today is ”National Empty Chair Day” !
* I feel particularly qualified to comment on Mr. Eastwood’s work. After all, he created the “Spaghetti Western”.
