Clint Eastwood's RNC Speech Made Romney Staffer Sick

"Double Down: Game Change 2012" is the follow-up novel to Mark Halperin and John Heilemann novel of the 2008 campaign. There is this gem from the 2012 Republican National Convention Mitt Romney's political adviser Stuart Stevens literally got sick during Clint Eastwood's empty chair speech.

Romney’s senior strategist, Stuart Stevens, was backstage with Romney watching Eastwood, and while the Republican nominee “seemed to think it was funny — at least at first,” the authors write, Stevens was so upset by the “disaster occurring on stage” that he “excused himself, went into another room and vomited.”

It is still amazing that the Romney campaign didn't vet Eastwood's speech.
