Skip to comments.Bill Maher: Eastwood 'killed' it
Posted on 09/01/2012 9:35:17 AM PDT by ColdOne
As a performer, as a stand-up comedian for 30 years who knows how hard it is to get laughs, excuse me, he went up there
without a net, on a tightrope. There was no teleprompter. He did a bit with just an empty chair and killed, Maher said. He committed to it, it was consistent and it worked.

Even more proof to me Eastwood trolled all of us and was a plant.
You can tell how effective it is by how hysteric the Leftist propaganda bots in the Media are about it.
In which case he the worst plan in history since the polling data in Fla shows 10% of undecided said Eastwood moved their vote.
But nice try at being a Democrat disinformation bot.
You beat me to it, Johnnie. That was exactly the point I was going to make. It was a brilliant performance and that polling data from earlier today confirms it. Clint Eastwood hit it out of the park.
But Rachel Maddow said it was a disaster. How can I reflexively disagree with both Maher and Maddow? I feel like I’m Faye Dunaway being slapped back and forth by Jack Nicholson in Chinatown.
Bump for your post!

It was a no-lose proposition for the Republicans. If it didn’t go over well, it was comic relief. If it went over well, big polling uptick.
Big upside, next to no downside.
For my part I found it painful, moreso because I know this is a tier 1 veteran actor/director, and expected a smoother delivery.
Im his daughter, I’m his sister! Im his daughter, I’m his sister!
“...There was no teleprompter.”
Maher is nothing more than a rat who understands his ship is sinking—and will grab onto anything that will save him. Even trying to suck up to conservatives. FU Maher and your little pony you came in on.
Bill Maher is a comedian? I always thought he was a jerk.
“Even more proof to me Eastwood trolled all of us and was a plant.”
Proof, Trolled, Plant, Explain Please!
What was the proof before you got “even more proof”?
Most definitely, Maher is in it for himself, and he’s not entirely stupid. Evil, but not stupid.
He shilled for Obama because he saw how the majority was going.
He may be hedging his bets here a bit. I think he could grow accustomed to tweaking the Left for a while just as he tweaked the Right these past years. He wants controversy, because that helps his ratings. Pure Obama shilling is not controversial anymore.
You got a mouse in your pocket?
I’ll admit I thought it was strange, but I also loved seeing him call out the Kenyan and telling him his time was up and he had to go.
Overall, I think the positives of the speech FAR outweighed its weird aspects.
