In case you've found yourself wondering about the location of Clint Eastwood's empty Obama chair from his rambling, incoherent speech at the RNC in Tampa, tonight is your lucky night. The chair that launched a million bad jokes (receiving a recent boost from Manti T'eo's fake girlfriend) is now located in Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus' office, which, as CNN reports, is just a "stone's throw away from the U.S. Capitol." CNN also notes that Preibus "gets" the joke and even points out the chair to visiting reporters before explaining to them the various recent failures of the Republican party. So now you know.

Watch Clint Eastwood's Rambling, Bizarre Speech at the RNC

In a largely incoherent speech, Clint Eastwood "maybe possibly" praised Mitt Romney, but mostly he argued with an empty stool, which was supposed to be Obama. It was... awkward. To Clint's credit, he didn't seem to care about staying on script, if he ever had one. He didn't exactly offer a ringing endorsement of Romney, either; after talking to imaginary Obama (which, again, was an empty stool next to him), Eastwood turned to the crowd and said, "Maybe, possibly it's time for someone else to come along and solve the problem." Maybe! Possibly! He's just not sure, but then again, poor Clint didn't seem sure of a whole lot up there.
