I guess people who don’t get it don’t get it. Clint, not simply an actor but a Hollywood legend, a successful actor, producer, writer, composer, and director - in other words an American success story - told Obama where to get off in words that will be understood from the salons of Hollywood to the docks of Hoboken, from the barrooms of the upper midwest to the retirement villages of Florida. The sophisticates of the dying dinosaur media from the “lovely” Andrea Mitchell to the spittle-spraying Chris Matthews will heap scorn on old Clint, but in their hearts they know he did damage to Demo hopes of connecting with independents and people who usually don’t vote ... they might this time just because Clint said, “It’s time to let him go.”
Well, you got it, and so did I.
“But I just
think it is important that you realize , that you’re the best in
the world. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or whether
you’re libertarian or whatever, you are the best. And we should
not ever forget that. And when somebody does not do the job, we
got to let them go.”
You got it right.
Clint is an icon.
It kind of freaked me out to see him there.
He’s not a talky kind of guy and for him to be up doing a comedy routine at the RNC was sort of like one of the signs of the apocalypse.
Apparently he thinks this election is serious enough to break character and give a public speech.
He doesn’t talk much in his movies and he isn’t given to yapping in real life.
I was floored to see him there.
