A lot of people loved it, a lot of people hated it, and a lot of people (including Rachel Maddow) just didn't know what to think after Clint Eastwood talked to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention.
Mitt Romney thought it was funny.
And clearly some Republicans agree with Eastwood's assessment because more and more Republicans are starting to talk to inanimate objects.
Take this recent RNC ad in which a woman breaks up with a cardboard cutout of President Obama.
There's also this ad from Republican congressional candidate Rabbi Shmuley Boteach who's running against Rep. Bill Pascrell, a Democrat from New Jersey. In the ad, Rabbi Boteach talks to an empty suit meant to represent his opponent.
This makes me feel a lot less strange for talking so much to my cat.
