Republican Convention 2012

"Eastwooding" Becomes a Thing on Twitter

You can get a lot of mileage out of an empty chair


First there was "Tebowing," and now there is "Eastwooding."

Twitter users today are flocking to the social network to share pictures of empty chairs in the spirit of "Eastwooding." The name comes from famed actor and director Clint Eastwood, who last night at the Republican National Convention held an interview with an empty chair. In that chair, Eastwood claimed, was President Barack Obama.
