Rules Of Invisibility

In the midst of controversy and divisiveness, both sides tend to completely overlook the obvious. In the recent kerfuffle over Clint Eastwood’s remarks, or better phrased, performance at the Republican National Convention there were all sorts of arguments engendered over whether he was drunk or not, whether
there were really 23 million Americans out of work, or whether the number was closer to U.S. government numbers of 12 million, whether Clint Eastwood should have implied that the invisible president had sworn at him, or not, whether Mr. Obama was up to the job, or, as Clint Eastwood had stated, “we’ve got to let him go.”, whether the Romney camp should have given him an extra chair, or not. There was debate over whether the Romney camp was completely upstaged and embarrassed by Clint Eastwood’s speech or not.

At the Convention the participants cheered and applauded at various junctures of Clint Eastwood’s one act play, and they provided a full-bodied ascent when he stated, “When somebody is not doing the job, we’ve got to let him go.”
There was, of course, debate over whether he should have drawn a slashing mark across his throat when he stated, “we’ve got to let him go.”
In all of this, however, that which was painfully obvious was completely overlooked. If you’ve ever seen the movie, “The Invisible Man,” the original, with Claude Rains, then you know that there are certain rules about invisibility.
Clearly, Invisible Obama has become ubiquitous, achieving that which the original invisible man, in his attempt to dominate, never was able to fully achieve.
Yet, there is an important fact about invisibility that most learned people, or at least movie goers, know. It’s this:
You can only become completely invisible if you remove all of your clothing. In other words, if you are jaunting down the street, or through a field, like the Invisible Man, with a pair of pants on, then everyone will see the pants. In the movie, the Invisible man, which should be required viewing at this point in history, the film creators went to great pains to show the tape being removed from the face of the invisible man. While his shirt and pants remained totally visible, the place which should have been occupied by a face was completely empty as the tape was removed. You saw the backdrop behind him, not a nose, a cheek or an eyeball.
It was such an achievement of cinematography to see that man in pajamas walk towards his bed, and yet, the hands, the face, revealed the backdrop, completely visible and in tact. One can only conclude that this was not due to the ability of cinematographers, who had no computers back then. One can only conclude that this is one of those technologies we received from Aliens (Wait, no, that film was before Roswell…) or, the plain truth is that Claude Rains was truly invisible.

That brings us back to Mr. Eastwood, and the conversation with the President. By all of the rules of Invisibility, and also, after careful examination of the video, one can only conclude that the complete absence of any ‘covering over’ or ‘obscuring’ of objects behind the President as he sat in the chair (and he’s
a tall man) can only lead us to one conclusion… You guessed it.
The President, Mr. Obama, was sitting in that chair completely naked.
