Colbert on Clint's empty chair

I've watched actor-director Clint Eastwood's RNC speech. And my comment is that it was strange. He talked to an empty chair that was supposed to be President Obama. Look I get it. It's like those Bob Newhart routines where's he is talking on the phone and we don't hear the other person talking but he relays the meaning. The problem is that the other voice must be a heightened reality. Eastwood implies that Obama would use vulgarities. Obama has never publicly used the vulgarity that Eastwood implies. So it's not funny. But who is funny is Stephen Colbert. Here's his take on the Eastwood fiasco.
