Chair and chair alike

Clint Eastwood’s talk — it wasn’t a speech — at the Republican National Convention went over either great, horrible, or okay, depending on who you talk to.

More on the right than on the left liked it. But even Bill Maher liked it, kinda. Didn’t like what Eastwood said, but he liked Eastwood’s approach.

But, I wonder if this will start a trend.

An empty chair to represent Obama.

What other furniture, appliances, or household items might represent others in the Obama administration? How would you represent Joe Biden? Or Hillary Clinton? Or George Soros?

Looking for ideas. Best one gets … HIGH PRAISE!

  1. Tangentially related – one of Dennis Miller’s callers pointed out that Clint’s performance was actually an homage to Bob Newhart’s phone skits, which he was quite famous for, back in the day. Here’s one:

  2. The new Funk and Wagnalls dictionary that has only one word – RACIST!!!!!, will be on the bookshelf. The cords to a broken crock pot and coffee percolator for “Plugs” Biden. A kettle screaming you’re not black enough to a pot.

  3. Biden: A broken cell phone that says “unable to connect” over and over.
    Geithner: A printer printing out hundred dollar bills.
    Chu: A burned out CFL
    Solis: A shovel leaning against the wall (no one is using it)
    Napolitano: A rubber glove (with KY IF the TSA agent is in a good mood)
    Duncan: A blank book.
    Holder: A Border Patrol badge with a bullet through it.
    Clinton: A passport stamped with every two-bit podunk country you’ve never heard of and a note that says ” Don’t let this woman into the US during an election year under any circumstances” B. Obama.
    Jackson: A natural gas meter with a stamp that says “Disapproved , go buy some solar panels”

  4. how about books on a shelf?

    hillary – machiavelli’s “the prince” (obviously)
    soros – a pile of scrooge mcduck comics
    obama – “steal this book”
    michelle – the klingon-to-english dictionary
    the cabinet – abagnale’s “catch me if you can”
    napolitano – “the anarchist cookbook”

  5. Obama: the agitator in a washing machine.
    Biden: a stopped up toilet; it’s plugged and full of s***.
    Hillary: a genetically mutated chicken that has only a left wing.
    Soros: a book on Demonology and Satanism so he can communicate with his kindred spirits.
    Pelosi: a turkey baster filled with industrial strength botox.
    Reid: a bag full of slightly heavily used toilet paper.

    • currently:
      I took what Chris wrote to mean that he was going to offer some suggestions, but that some of the suggestions were more mean than funny. And, some are. But, some are funny.

      If the level of the suggestions is lower than that with which you want to associate, maybe offer a funny suggestion of a higher level. Go back to the original, a chair. Start from there and bring the funny!

  6. Biden: The “Good China” that you bring out for special occasions and forget about the rest of the year.

    Bill Clinton: That coffee can of grease you keep using over & over when you need to get things cooking.

    Hillary Clinton: The coffe can you use to keep the grease available.
