Social media went so wild after Eastwood's nutty bit -- with the #Eastwooding meme and "Invisible Obama" Twitter account -- that even the real president took notice.
So happened to Eastwood's empty chair after its 15 minutes of fame?
According to CNN, the chair has a special place in the office of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus in Washington, D.C., where it serves as a reminder of the perils of misguided political messages.
The chairman of the Republican National Committee gets the joke. It’s the first thing he points out to a reporter before sitting down behind his desk to discuss how his party must dramatically rethink its strategy and message in hopes of recovering from the presidential drubbing of 2012.
