1) Unintentional Hilarity.
You don't want to miss surreal theater like this.
Clint Eastwood speaks disrespectfully to an empty chair purported to contain the President of the United States.
Just when I gained control of my jaw and got on to Twitter to see if I was hallucinating, this popped up:
2. Clarification of One's Beliefs
My thoughts crystallized during Mitt's video-bio, when his sons described how he was "cheap." The example they showed was an oven vent light that went out. Mitt replaced it with a regular light bulb so he didn't have to buy an appliance bulb.
Since the larger light bulb stuck out and blinded those who were cooking, Mitt taped a strip of aluminum foil to the front of the vent.
And I say, on behalf of everyone with MS who may be asked to cook dinner standing inches away from a 40 watt light bulb, Mitt, you are an asshole.
This is exactly why I don't want you running my country. They say you should run the U.S. because you'd run it like a successful business. I don't want my country to be a business. A business where people are laid off because it's not financially feasible to keep them on? I want it to be a family. A family in which someone who is a drug addict gets unconditional love and free syringes so he won't die. One that feeds a hungry man just because he's hungry, even thought he's just spent his last dime on a flat-screen color television and some vodka.
I know, when either party wins it'll be somewhere between both extremes, but I can't vote for someone who cares more about a 50 cent light bulb than he cares about his family.
And REALLY. That Clint Eastwood thing was weird.
