    Watched the last night of the GOP Convention...

    Or tried to.  The only time my attention didn't wander was during Clint Eastwood's curious performance.  

    I had the feeling I was watching an event broadcast from another country, a very unfamiliar country. When the cameras panned the crowd...well, it didn't look like a group of Americans.  So white, so old.  And when they spoke their concerns were so different than that of anyone I know.  Well, wait.  I knew a woman who listened to Rush Limbaugh, thought he was funny.  But see, I couldn't begin to understand any of that.

    Did Romney characterize his father's family as refugees from the revolution in Mexico?

      Curious indeed. As a matter of
      fact I can't get over a mild feeling, in the nether regions of what serves as a brain for me, that begs the question: COULD CLINT EASTWOOD HAVE BEEN STANDING IN, AT THE GOP CONVENTION, AS A SUBTERFUGE RINGER FOR PRES. OBAMA???
