For those of you who watch and like Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, this is a hilarious and incisive piss take of Clint Eastwood’s rant at an empty chair (representing Obama) at the Republican convention in Tampa, Florida this week.
He also takes apart Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech as a”whitewash of American history” where Romney pretends that the world before Obama was some kind of idealistic nirvana. We all know that politicians are prone to reinterpreting history. The Republicans (and conservative side of politics generally) make reinventing history an art form.
As Jon Stewart said: He talked about “a perfect America that used to exist until Barack Obama ruined it… and so what if that America had never actually existed.”
This is well worth watching. I couldn’t find it on Youtube, so you have to click the link to find the video clip.
Disclaimer. I am actually a Clint Eastwood fan (of his movies). Can’t help it
