I just got off the phone with our very own Georgia Girl who came up with a great idea. Allow me to explain in my typically desultory way…
AIS, for those not in the know, stands for “Ass In Seat”. As in: “You better be ass-in-seat by 07:00 or you’re gettin’ a pair of Irish sunglasses!” Etc.
Why do I bring this up?
Clint Eastwood gave a memorable performance at the recent Republican National Convention in Tampa, where he held a dialog with an imaginary Barack Hussein Obama as represented by an empty chair. While the self-assessed “elites” lampooned this performance and denigrated Eastwood as over-the-hill and possibly senile and demented, the shtick took on a life of its own with patriots across the country, whereby empty chair-hilarity ensued. E.g.:
Or my favorite…
For this great new “meme”, we have no one but Clint Eastwood to thank.
So what’s all this have to do with AIS?
Well, this weekend, Eastwood’s new movie, Trouble with the Curve, opens in theaters across the country. It has received middling reviews—much to the delight of said “elites”, who are snickering about “empty chairs” being the common sight at showings of the film. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate our elites and their pretentious, hubristic, narcissistic, smug, sanctimonious, holier-than-thou attitude toward all things patriotic? Well, what would be better than to make a mockery of their mockery by filling said “empty chairs” with the asses of patriots this weekend and thereby sending Eastwood’s latest effort into better-than-expected territory?
Think of it as “National Chick-fil-A Day”, but without all the perpetually-aggrieved, whining fagiots making out in the parking lot.
Plus, when was the last time you took the little filly out for a night on the town? Make it a dinner-and-a-movie night and, who knows—you may just get lucky!
So whacha say, patriots—gonna get your AIS this weekend and help a brotha out?
Well, are ya, punk?
