Reminds me of the expectations everyone had of Fred Thompson, who is a powerful actor, but did poorly on the Presidential circuit. People were expecting Dirty Harry, not a flawed, frail senior citizen.

The empty chair gag also struck me as something predating television and possibly the Republican Party.
Probably so. But, I think it will get a shot in the arm now.

I further predict that durng the campaign:

1. Joe Biden will put his foot in his mouth.

2. The President will turn this same gag around.

At least we will get a laugh while we ride down to hell...

LOL, just what is it that you have against "bumbling idiots?" If you eliminate them as potential recipients of your favorable esteem, you have eliminated perhaps 90% of the Earth's population! :icon_scratch:

PS: I'm not absolutely certain, but I do believe the Obama Administration has come off as a collection of bumbling idiots for most of the past four years...bumbling, but at times, occasionally lovable! I do so wish they could spend my tax dollars to better effect

It's really such a shame he chose to lever his much loved-by-all legacy in such a partisan fashion.
hmmm....I think the real shame is we have all lost site of the fact he is an actor....nothing more nothing less.
We are all so starved for real leaders that we look towards the imaginary ones as our hope.

Yeah, all those great right wing comedians dominate the industry.....oh wait.
Professional comedians are usually pretty lame when commenting on politics (where is the Left's Mark Steyn, scrappleface or iowahawk?), but Colbert is an exception:

Of course the honorable Rep. Clarke was unduly hard on the Dutch. But for those previously unappreciated (and little known) Brooklynites, thousands of slaves undoubtedly would have fled to Manhattan causing it to tip over and capsize.

Apparently one need not possess a sense of humor to generate it.

Following that scene, although Democrats were a little skimpy this year with their usual celebrity parade, they did manage to drag out Dana Carvey doing his old Church Lady gag and put back Jerusalem and God after all!!
