The suits should stop cringing.  I watched and thought it was great.  Ridicule is an extremely potent weapon.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

I loved it and the fact the media is still harping on it is proof positive it was very effective.

Exactly.  The MSM knows it was the most effective moment of the convention in terms of influencing the remaining undecideds.  Fortunately for us, their continuing to harp about it gives it much more shelf life than it might have otherwise had.

Exactly.  A convention is not about serious, detailed policy-wonk discussions.  It's primarily theatre, and well-aimed rhetorical attacks are the core of it.

Clint Eastwood was wonderful. He looked exactly as he looks walking around here in Carmel. Anyone who didn't like his performance just doesn't get it.

If you ever get a chance tell him he had a LOT of people cheering FOR him the other night!

Eastwood is a master of simplicity. He crafted a couple of sound bites which likely will get repeated and used.

All the while appearing as a frumpy over the hill guy.

Good performance, by somebody that has a lifetime resume, with nobody else even close.

We shouldn't be surprised if they don't now plan something involving somebody like George Clooney....of somebody with his starpower, to speak at their convention.

If they do it won't have the same effect and will smack of "me-tooism"......  never pays to be a follower, much better to be a leader.

Since what's going on already is reading like a Robert Ludlum novel...

We're 'told'.....


Hillary Clinton has literally gone to the other side of the globe to demonstrate her distance from their convention.

Barack Obama suddenly announces that he's not going to run for another term where he'll retire a BILLIONAIRE in Hawaii.

We will see 24/7 coverage of the Hildebeast as she hops a plane and flies into North Carolina to take the Alinsky baton to the finish line.

Game, set, match.

edit:  sorry for throwing the thread off a bit.


.....but there are about a dozen other ones   :shrug:

LOL Shut your mouth!!  :silly:

I think I can see how that image would work.  The grumpy, frumpy, flinty old man telling that d*mned whippersnapper where he can get off.

ROFL!   

Hey.....don't you feel like we're in a movie or something?  Like we're a the prelude to something literally climatic?

Maybe it's my age and growing cynicism.    :shrug:

Yes but more like a Horror film!! I am waiting for Norman Bates!!!
