    "His ad libbing was a break from all the political speeches, and the crowd enjoyed it"
    Still not sighted in, guys. Going home would have been a "break from all the political speeches", and going home works for free. The crowd who enjoyed it? That was us watching your reaction.

    But why the chair thing and how? Even Republicans found it uncomfortable. I've no small history of poor judgment, but even I could have told them it was a bad idea. Probably wouldn't have, but I could have.

      Crowds cheering for people who die from lack of health coverage.

      Putting up a huge wall to keep people out of the country.

      Why is Eastwood's lame comedy even more strange than those debates?

      The GOP is strange, at least  Eastwood is 82, so it is normal for him to have opinions that seem strange to someone under 50.

        For all the evil, fallacious, tone deaf and creepy things the GOP foists on its followers, they finally found a limit. It really wasn't obvious that the "Let them die!" crowd would ever fail to politely follow along, but some of them really weren't comfortable sitting through that.

    •  Why put in on during network coverage @10pm (5+ / 0-)

      Folks tuning in then wouldn't need a break from the speeches.  And Eastwood bumped the bio video package off the network coverage - which also would have been a break from the speeches.  So like the rest of the Romney Campaign, they're lying about this.

      An OFA Campaign Web Ad is the new Reid "sternly worded letter".
