    And nobody's that good of an actor.

    •  Thing is, he doesn't HAVE to be that good (2+ / 0-)

      It would just be playing up the crowd's expectations. I suggest you watch the speech again with this theory in mind. Take note of what he is NOT saying, which is anything good about Ryan/Romney.

          the background he has had before cameras, etc.

          remember, this guy has run in the political arena and won.

          that sentence just highlighted in the diary at the time sent real question marks through me - but not enough to flag it as the diarist has.

          i keep calling mittens the subliminal candidate

          oh, yeah, vote for romney
          in this convention and now i'm rethinking the eastwood moment.

          as another diarist/article pointed out, his "go ** yourself" comments would definitely offend many older and/or deeply religious conservative voters - that language and suggestion is highly charged and not in their vernacular.

          now i, too, am thinking, mittens got pwned!
