NEW ORLEANS - Vice President Joe Biden on Friday openly accused conservative actor Clint Eastwood of "ripping off" what he called his "entire act" with his bizarre speech during the final night of the Republican National Convention in Tampa. The vice president observed that Eastwood's choice to address an empty chair as "President Obama" is the same thing he himself had been doing in front of audiences for months.
NEW ORLEANS, LA - Despite the onslaught of bad press in the wake of Romney campaign adviser Eric Ferhnstrom's unfortunate 'Etch A Sketch' remark, gaffe-prone presidential candidate Mitt Romney (R-MA) is delighting in the fact that the poor choice of words came from someone other than himself. Speaking to a crowd of supporters on Bourbon Street on Friday, Romney spoke at length about how elated he was to not be the source of another embarrassing sound bite.
"See, I'm not the only one on my staff capable of saying unfortunate things, y'all," said Romney. "It's just such a relief to not be guy who said the inexplicably stupid thing, for once."
