Clint Eastwood’s RNC Obama Chair Gets Own Twitter Account
You know that wooden chair Clint Eastwood was talking to during tonight’s speech at the Republican National Convention? It already has its own Twitter account. At least two actually.
For those who might have missed it (but expect to hear plenty about it during upcoming RNC post-mortems), the iconic action actor spent part of his moment in the convention spotlight chatting (transcript) with an empty chair that was supposed to represent President Obama. And if presidents can have their own Twitter accounts, why can’t chairs that are standing in as presidents?
Invisible Obama (bio: Stage left of Clint Eastwood) sent out its first Tweet at about 6:20 p.m. PT. It’s been busy tweeting since: “The GOP built me.” “When Mitt Romney says ‘Mr. Chairman’, do you think he’s referring to me?”
