It was perfect.
This is the perfect symbol of the Republican Party today. They should retire the elephant (too noble and strong for a party of weaselly, bigoted bullies) and just make Clint Eastwood the new GOP symbol. He's absolutely perfect for it: a rich, cranky, senile old man, on a second wife young enough to be his daughter, with delusions of being a cowboy just because he played them in movies, shilling hypocrisy from an assumed position of moral superiority, accusing others of partisanship by engaging in it, talking around issues and having a one-sided argument with an imaginary straw man.
Old white guy yells at chair. That's the GOP in a nutshell.
Clint Eastwood didn't embarrass the GOP last night: he exemplified it.
