The Cutting Room Floor 3


A clip of RNC highlights released Sunday by the Romney campaign emphasizes top Republican politicos like Romney, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, cutting Eastwood out entirely. But that didn’t have much of an effect on Romney’s supporters.

In other news, further down the story, individual Republicans seem to have adopted the empty chair as a symbol of the party.

It fits.

They nominated an empty suit.

    Just makes an axiom out of the idea that comedy writers aren’t really necessary with the Republican Party as, daily, it does all the heavy lifting. It’s been such a long trudge of hatefulness it’s become laughable since there’s no other way to deal with it. Mitt Romney — one just has this inescapable image of someone who can’t talk to normal people without being a boor or a jerk, beating up a gay man when he was in school, having everything in life handed to him by dad, it just goes on and on, dirtying up and making ridiculous everyone who has anything to do with him.

    Why do I think of the old Southern pols who had no idea, none indeedy whatsoever, that there was going to be a cross-burning last night?

    That’s just it. Even the most blinkered and out of it can’t ignore it anymore. Vote for Mitt, we’re the hateful, er, we meant to say “faithful.”
