I'd say he made OUR day...

Clint Eastwood's speech during the Republican National Convention last night has been one of the most popular topics in the media since then. Some have called the speech inspirational, some called it a rambling mess, and some wondered just what on Earth Eastwood was thinking. (I'm not asking for a political opinion here.)

One photo that's been making the rounds on the interwebs today seems all too prescient. (As someone put it, "Leave it to the Simpsons to predict the future.")

Immediately after Eastwood's speech, the Twitter handle @invisibleobama began picking up followers left and right. And the handle @Eastwoods_Chair already has more than 2000 followers.

But as funny as that is, the latest craze sweeping Twitter is "Eastwooding." Forget "Tebowing," pictures of empty chairs and benches, as well as pictures of people lecturing an empty chair can be found all over the web. Here are some fun ones:

And my personal favorite, Clint "Eastwooding" Blue's Clues

Whoever said social media isn't productive hasn't gotten swept up in a craze like this.
