Michelle Malkin is so used to being part of a right wing noise machine that regularly succeeds in creating its own reality that she can't quite believe the machine is malfunctioning -- and, really, how could the propaganda machine function properly if it has to spin Clint Eastwood's Republican convention speech?

Here's Malkin's attempt to put lipstick on the stinking pig carcass that was Eastwood's speech:
What better way to commemorate the Labor Day holiday than to send a message to the AWOL campaign-in-chief -- and support Clint Eastwood, to boot!

Twitchy has the story of the latest Eastwood-inspired social media phenomenon....

Now: #EmptyChairDay.

Monday is the day.

Decorate yours any way you want it: Nobama stickers, Romney/Ryan yard signs, golf clubs, mom jeans, etc. Email/tweet us your best entries....
Um, isn't the right's other anti-Obama propaganda always telling us that his administration is a relentless, 24/7/365 juggernaut of America-destroying initiatives? So, what -- in less than four years he's destroyed what it took Real Americans 200+ years to build up -- even though he's really lazy?

Besides, don't the wingers want government to do as little as possible? Don't they love Ronnie Reagan for his midday naps?

And, oh, look -- here are the Breitbartniks yelling, "Clap louder!"

After the speech, Michael Moore wrote that, in the future, people won't remember Eastwood's accomplishments as an actor and director as much as they'll remember this crazy speech. I don't really believe that -- but I'm starting to wonder whether that will be the case on the right. Right-wingers consider their own dreadful liberal-bashing humor to be not only hilarious, but timeless -- is it surprising that Mark Leibovich of The New York Times found a delegate wearing a "Ted Kennedy for Lifeguard" button at this year's Republican convention? I could imagine these people placing empty chairs on Eastwood's grave decades after he's shuffled off this mortail coil -- still angry at Obama long after the end of his presidency, and still believing that what Eastwood did back in '12 was really freaking hilarious.

After 4 years of hearing about Obama being a Kenyan born in Hawaii, a Muslim who attends a Christian church and supports gay marriage and eats bacon, the head of Harvard Law Review who is so dumb he can't get through one sentence without reading it off a teleprompter...well, this latest stuff does not faze me one bit.

National Empty Chair Day?

They're starting to run out of material.

And here it is, not even the middle of September of the last year of President Obama's first term yet.

The right wing is doing a great job keeping people thinking about Eastwood's speech and not Romney's. Good idea?

They really ought to be celebrating Empty Suit Day. But, okay, they can't get behind Labor Day because, you know, that means celebrating working people, not capital.

@giantslor oh, yes, they'd rather remember the only interesting part of their whole week. Did you see that Romney's speech ranked with Dole's for worst since Gallup started measuring responses?
