"I never thought attorney's should be president"

So Abraham Lincoln, no good as a president huh?

ATTORNEYS, NOT ATTORNEY'S. IT'S THE PLURAL, NOT THE CONJUNCTIVE.

I agree wholeheartedly with your point, however I feel I should point out that capital letters go only at the start of a sentence or the start of a proper noun. When correcting grammar, it's prudent to ensure that your own doesn't suffer at the hands of your own emotions.

I'm not going to answer this, because it's so manifestly silly any response would just be flaming. Don't want to feed the troll.

The party's name is the Democratic Party. It has been since 1830. Please spell correctly.

Maybe Eastwood is so close to the other side he's starting to see stuff from there.  Maybe he was arguing with Lincoln in the chair.


Man he was awesome in the old days as Rowdy Yates...

Just curious: did anybody else catch the part in the campaign video where they said he would drive a mile to save $.50? if you average out the price of the gas per mile, and multiply it by two (for the trip back), it turns out that he's actually losing some money!
Space? SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!

I listened to two speeches:  one by the founder of Staples, and one by the Lt. Governor who served under Romney.  I am now more convinced than ever that I do not live in the same reality as the Republicans.

A summary for those of us fortunate enough to miss it?

I'd love it if Clint Eastwood was simply invoking Poe's Law and just trolled the RNC harder than any person but him has a right to.

Is anyone else perturbed by the fact that Paul Ryan basically said "we won't blame other people" then in the same speech went and blamed Obama for a bunch of stuff?

Also, did someone give me a +1 fucks given for the two minutes hate video? That's nice and all, but I'm just posting what the obvious truth is.

It probably isn't as good as the book (I've only read excerpts of it), but I found the film very pertinent.

The book is 100x better than the movie, in my opinion.

Anyway, I was daydreaming at work today and thought I should take a picture of myself talking to an empty chair for my online avatar images.

This whole invisible Obama skit really reinforces/underscores that the GOP (and their followers) are really about attacking the phantom menace version (and I don't mean the George Lucas kind) of Obama -this misconstrued boogey man they've been working so hard to define. I mean, talk about attacking a straw man with no possibility of rebuttal!

Too bad you don't tend to win elections voting against somebody; they still have to give people a reason to vote for Romney. I don't think this convention gave anyone a reason that wasn't already behind him, in my opinion.

The book is very good (IMO), so if the movie is anywhere close, it's worth seeing.

Why was Clint arguing with a chair?
"A chair"? Is that how you talk about your President, young man? Mr. Eastwood obviously had a very interesting discussion with President Obama, and if I may say so, he totally talked him down. Obama had nothing against him. It was inspiring.

As a foreigner I have to ask this, because I have no idea : Was this big in television, did a big part of the population watch it, or was this just followed by those who lost their marbles anyway? I mean, does this actually influence those who are undecided? And how did the media react to this? I don't mean fox news, but those who are independent and neutral.... do you have big neutral news stations on the other side of the pond? Sorry for asking this, right now I feel like those guys who ask me if we have fridges and if Hitler is still in power, but as the only side of America I have seen in the last months were those people, I guess it's a valid question.
