Not Even the Chair

I was listening to Neil Diamond’s “I am…I said”, and he sings:

“I am, I said

The Invisible Man

To no one there
And no one heard at all
Not even the chair.”  

Doesn’t this remind one of Clint Eastwood at the GOP convention?

“Trouble with the Curve”, his latest movie, is also full of scenes where he conducts deep, philosophical “conversations” with inanimate objects–a tombstone, a photograph…

What does this trend –of talking to no one in particular—signify?  That Republicans cannot relate to anybody,  are happy talking to those that cannot talk back, and that they never feel the need to justify their actions…
