It's making me a little sad for Mr. Eastwood. I don't want to assume that age is taking its toll*, but that's kind of how he's coming across.







* I'd like to think that maybe he just really doesn't give a shit and is winging it. The other options are the aforementioned aging issues, or that someone actually wrote this, which is fairly baffling.

I actually watched most of the convention last night with my very Republican in-laws...

I expected it to be somewhat akward at times, and they were only the akward moments were provided by Eastwood(I couldn't even watch the whole thing) and the guy commentating for Fox. What a trainwreck. My in-laws were motivated from the night before, all they could talk about was Ryan, but last night was full of crickets, eyerolls, and cringes. They found the whole night deflating, there was maybe two audible "yeahs", I think both from Rubio's speech and complete lack of interest during Mitt's speech, which we all joked had to be sponsored by Mary Kay.

I would be tempted to vote for Huntsman over Obama. Which is why he can't be the face of the GOP.

I didn't see it last night but watched it this morning. I actually couldn't follow half of what he was saying. Totally bizarre.

It's days like this that remind us why the internet is amazing.

It seems to me that Romney has now been overshadowed by others in or affiliated with his party for at least the last two weeks, and at a pivotal time for him as well: first by Ryan, and now by a semi-coherent Eastwood. This is the strangest campaign that I can remember in my life in the sense that it is almost as if Romney is not even the candidate.

I guess I have a different perspective to most on here. Based on that speech, Romney is looking electable to me. He needs to provide more meat around the jobs plan. Hopefully that will come in time.

I think lots of Democrat voting black folk spend their days arguing with an invisible racist system of GOP oppression.

(I don't actually believe that, I am just pointing out the inherent prejudice in your post.)
