Chair and chair alike

Posted on September 1, 2012 1:00 pm

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!

    President Dogturd

  2. Harvey says:

    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:

  3. Joan of Argghh! says:

    For Biden? Why, a stool, of course.

  4. Basil says:

    A stool? Like Paul Mitchell suggested? Or like you use with a cow?

    For Biden? a tree stump…for Hillary?…a leisure suit…..for Soros?……Darth Vaders lightsaber

    I would say a glass hammer for Obama, and a bag of nothing for Biden.

  7. currently says:

    Biden is easy.

    A set of shiny false teeth soaking in a glass of dingy water.

    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.

    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”

  10. hatless in hattiesburg says:

    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”

  11. Andy says:

    An empty refrigerator. Maybe with one “organically produced” egg on the middle shelf.

  12. Iowa Jim says:

    Michelle – a whistling tea kettle on full boil
    Obama – a bag of hammers

  13. Jimmy says:

    Biden – a shop vac that’s stuck on blowing rather than sucking. And, it sucks at blowing!

    Hillary – a blender that instantly purees everything you would just like to just mix.

    Forget the chair, just have an ass (donkey) standing there!

  15. Ogrrre says:

    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.

  16. Walt says:

    Old fashioned chamber pot could easily represent any number of members of the mainstream press.

  17. Thor says:

    Biden: The rubber crutch

  18. CaptMidnight says:

    Bidet for Debbie Wasserman Shultz. Something to sit on for a long time to rinse off crotch rot.

  19. Chris says:

    I was going to post something, but this thread is starting to sound too much like the Daily Kos in reverse. Going to move on.

  20. currently says:


    Why did you post?

    You were going to post but decided to move on.

    Only problem was that you posted.


  21. Basil says:

    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!

    Biden: A clothes dryer, produces nothing but hot air and spin.

  24. CTCompromise says:

    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.

  25. Dohtimes says:

    The stove and the spatula Bill Murray used on PJ Soles in Stripes. And PJ Soles.
