The best thing about this is it give Democrats an excuse to fill Barbara Streisand up with gimlets and just send her out to rant for 10 minutes about how she deserved an Oscar for Yentl.

Pft, those Democrats are pathetic for the way they fawn over the Hollywood crowd. They use celebrities to sucker their supports, it's so shallow and elitist.
What's that? Some actor more famous than Jon Voight and Kelsey Grammer actually supports Romney? Get him the most prominent speaking spot you can at the convention! Hot-damn, maybe we can finally stop having to use Victoria Jackson and that cast-off Baldwin brother.
Some conservative on my Facebook posted an article listing conservative celebrities. It was mainly filled with C-listers, D-listers, and the ones who were A-listers were crazies like Mel Gibson. Clint Eastwood is the Right's one true gem in Hollywood. Sure its a lame appeal in using him, but we love you Clint.
The only question is whether he'll still be popular with the Tea Party crowd when they find out he's pro-gay marriage, anti-religion in government, and takes the environment and global warming seriously. Hell, his comments on stage about Afghanistan were as much a criticism of Republicans, but as long as he was knocking Obama the crowd didn't seem to care.
Its half time in America and he believes we need a new coach. Sure he hates just about everything the new coach stands for, but he seems to believe the new coach will fix the economy... with magic.

Hey, it's the clumsy lab assistant from "Revenge of the Creature"! Always wondered what became of him.
I heard he went to italy, started in some cheap b movies, then he was picked by Godfrey Ho and became....GORDON THE NINJA!

I've always been kind of ambivalent about Eastwood, but I never thought I'd see him turn into a doddering, sputtering, utterly irrelevant, rambling, incoherent sycophant.
Marpoo: Bah, he has different opinions on politics than you. Get over it, he's still one of the greatest actors and directors ever.
I like his movies. I even like some of the ones he directed.
It wasn't appearing at the RNC that dispelled his aura of inscrutability for me. It was him acting frail and senile, and totally uninformed. You didn't see this shit happen to Carlin.

Maybe he's not senile or crazy; this could be the most flawlessly acted role he's done yet.
The more I see this, the more I think he probably had a speech he'd written beforehand, but then some lunatics who spoke before him said stuff that the crowd went wild for that clued Eastwood in to how his speech would go over like food stamps for a poor minority family, and he nixed it at the last minute.

Dear Mr. Eastwood,
If guys like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were in one of your movies, they would be the bad guys and your character would be facing off against them.
Romney built his fortune by using borrowed money to finance hostile takeovers of struggling businesses. He then forced those businesses to borrow more money which he forced them to hand over to him. His company got all the money, they got all the debts. This also resulted in a shit-ton of people losing the jobs and/or benefits they had devoted decades of their lives to. Then he squirreled his loot away in offshore accounts because he feels he's too fucking special to pay taxes and support America.
Ryan is just a hateful dishonest little turd. He would love nothing more than to be head of a "christian" version of the Taliban, subjugating women, persecuting homosexuals and crushing thought that isn't in line with church doctrine. He also has a special hatred of the poor. Disgusted by their lack of "success", he feels they should quietly and politely starve to death if they refuse to be whipped and beaten and driven to "achieve". He lies as often as he breathes.
I know you long for the simpler days depicted in your early movies, but those days never existed. It was all a fictional construct. So, apparently, were all the heroes you played.

We get it. You wonder just how the fuck you ended up THERE, selling your soul to a bunch of evil fucks. Is this the price of hanging with people who want to replace the current president? Will they really lynch you if you let fly that you don't agree with their central tenets of conservatism -- no gay marriage, no abortion, jeebus for all?

Million Dollar Baby was terrible.
Billion Dollar Babies is a decent album, though, so that kind of offsets it in the grand scheme of things.

Why not just make an actual little man out of straw and sit him down in the chair?

I liked this. It was the best thing to come out of the RNC except for the Daily Show this week. And that being said who remembers what Willard said last night........no one. At least not the independents or the Democrats who might have voted for him based on what Mittens said.
|Koda Maja - 2012-08-31 |
When he says "Hot-dogging it", does he mean when you screw someone between the butt cheeks without any actual insertion?
|BHWW - 2012-08-31 |
"I am"...I said.
To no one there.
And no one heard at all.
Not even the chair.

"What was that, Chairbama? You want me to take off all my clothes and do jumping jacks in front of all these nice people? Well, if it will help Mitt Romney become Queen of America..."
