And now "eastwooding" is apparently a word. As for what it describes, I'm not quite sure. Maybe talking to an invisible person in a chair?

Reportedly, Romney's people backstage kept wincing during Eastwood's speech. The best part was when Eastwood said that the President shouldn't be a lawyer. I guess he didn't know that Romney graduated from Harvard Law.

Ya, I mean when they panned to people in the audience, some looked uncomfortable. Even Paul Ryan had a "wtf" look on his face.

HA! I missed that connection. Awesome.

About last night....this makes me smile:
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertai...-out-the-rncs/

Quote:
Mitt Romney and company couldn’t beat the allure of a self-proclaimed “redneck” family. According to Nielsen overnight ratings, TLC’s controversial reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” drew 2.9 million viewers Wednesday night at 10 p.m. In second place: Fox News’ coverage of the Republican National Convention, to which 1.2 million adults tuned in.
In my minds eye I see Will/Boogie doing their hysterical laughs from the DR.

Honestly, I've read full reports and there are all misleading because the RNC is covered by the 3 majors and then many cable news outlets. Combined viewership made it look like Honey Boo Boo doesn't exist. It's crazy how things can get twisted depending on where you read it from.

However it is odd that Fox News didn't have more viewers.

I think they only meant to imply that one night - not a cumulative total. The article does say:
Quote:
But, of course, aggregate coverage of the RNC across networks topped “Honey Boo Boo’s” numbers.
I just final it absolutely hilarious that Honey Boo Boo beats it any night. Maybe I should revise my wording to say "last night" so I don't appear to be saying overall.

EDIT: Oh wait I get what your saying...I'm slow today. Your saying the article is kinda BS because maybe they didn't add up the viewers on all those different networks. That's way less funny.

LOLOL Kara. It's ok. I had to think about it too. Ya, I'm saying that same night they didn't take into account everyone watching. Sorry, I should have been more clear.

But still, like I said, the fact that HBB beat coverage on Fox News is kinda humorous.

Let's just go with funny - I submit this:


I watched Anne, Christy, Eastwood and Rubio. I think MY nose grew just from hearing all the lies.
