Hollywood powerhouse Clint Eastwood and his imaginary friend Barak Obama thrilled RNC convention goers Thursday night. In a post speech interview Eastwood observed that he felt his “imaginary friend” theme dovetailed perfectly with the Republican Party’s “imaginary facts” approach to this year's campaign. “It’s this kind of consistency that’s bound to win over the all important undecided voters as well as female voters who hate women,” the film legend enthused.
Later in the evening, in some off the cuff comments at one of Tampa’s finer pole bars, the imaginary Obama agreed. “I think the whole thing went very well for both Clint and Mitt. I had no idea I’d be there tonight until I suddenly appeared after Clint smoked something that didn’t look like a Marlboro. Come what may, it was fascinating, like a glimpse into the opposing team’s locker room.” The imaginary President went on, “the Clintster (that’s what he told me to call him) also said that he was sick of casting Morgan Freeman every five minutes and that after leaving office I could very well have a future as an imaginary actor.”
Some Democrats who were interviewed felt betrayed. “We thought he was one of us,” complained a clearly agitated Wayne Bing, who later admitted to being a Canadian. “I guess we should have seen it coming when he did an entire movie about J. Edgar Hoover and didn’t show Leo DiCaperio wearing a dress once! What’s up with that?”
