Conservatives Saw Clint Eastwood Talking to a Fictional Obama Only They Can See
This image [Clint Eastwood talking to a chair] personifies the modern Republican Party. It represents their disrespect of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama and it represents the fictional Obama that exists only in the Republican brain. Clint Eastwood pretending that this fictional Obama said “Go fuck yourself,” is completely out-of-character for the real President Obama. But it’s not out-of-character for the imaginary President Obama within the conservative mind. And before you say it was just meant to be funny, I’d like to remind you that the best jokes have a basis in reality. There is usually some truth. There was no truth to the Clint Eastwood invented Obama.
The imaginary President Obama is out to destroy America, and saying something like “go fuck yourself” is hardly a stretch for someone with such horrible and devious intentions. But let’s be clear, this Obama does not exist in the real world. This Obama who wants to destroy America (while first redistributing wealth) can only be seen through the eyes of a conservative.
Most of us who live in something we call “reality,” saw Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair. Conservatives living in their alternate reality saw Eastwood talking to a fictional President Obama that only they can see.
