I know using Sesame Street to teach a lesson to Republicans is like trying to use Turkish to order in a Mexican restaurant, but here’s a lesson the rest of us (who weren’t raised to want to murder Big Bird in his sleep) learned as children. One of these is a compromise. One of these is not. Your lesson today was brought to you by the letters O, B, A, M, C, R, E, and the support of viewers like you.
Despite all evidence to the contrary this is not spoof, parody, skit, or sketch. Ladies and gentlemen I offer you this special look into the life of Bob Larson who travels country to perform private exorcisms like the one in this video in which he relieves a tortured soul of the gay sex demon who has possessed him for years. (Yeah, you read that correctly.) The man is also organizing an “International School of Exorcism,” to train the next generation on his unique skill set. Seriously, WTF?
So, for those who haven’t heard, Clint Eastwood showed up as one of the speakers of last night’s Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, Florida. Eastwood went on with an 11-minute unscripted speech where he had a conversation with an invisible Barack Obama which came off to those who watched more like Grandpa Simpson forgot his Alzheimer’s medicine than an actual bit. In case you missed it you can find the full video inside along with a humorously edited Wikipedia article for the actor putting the speech in proper perspective.
