    Clint's speech...

    ...

    I haven’t seen a speech like Clint Eastwood’s since Rick Perry’s in New Hampshire in October, when he rambled on and on with his slurred speech so much that folks thought he was on Quaaludes.

    I think serious disservice was done to the GOP cause, by permitting Eastwood to ramble on to an empty chair, making throat cutting gestures, suggesting “they” own America, implying that the empty chair (POTUS) was telling him to go fock himself, and ending with a famous line from his macho movies (“Make my day”) suggesting he was about to blow somebody away at the slightest provocation, particularly in this day and age.

    In fairness, it would appear he had carte blanche permission to freelance, and word has it that many in the RNC were grimacing and squirming in their seats, while listening to Eastwood’s least impressive role since his brief appearance as a sailor in “Francis (the talking mule) in the Navy” early in his career.

    Unfortunately, it would appear many (not all) of those in attendance, (mostly angry, old, white guys, the Tea Party stalwarts not unlike Eastwood’s character Walt Kowalski in “Gran Torino”) ate it up. Did the rest of America? Stay tuned. I, for one, a fan of much of his later work, was extremely disappointed in this performance, and do not feel it was at all appropriate. JMO.
