So they got Clint Eastwood. Fabulous. The meme has more legs than the actual speech.

The majority of the stories in the MSM about Clint's headscratcher are about how "weird," "surreal," and "unscripted" the speech was, and, along with the questionable veracity of Ryan's acceptance speech, "The old man and the chair" is currently trending higher than Romney's appearance.

edited to add: the more ridiculous this is made to look, the more forgettable the message, such that it is, will become.
