Limbaugh: Clint And I Were On The Same Zen-Like Astral Plane (Rush replay)
Daily Rushbo/Rush Limbaugh ^ | 8-30-12

Posted on 09/01/2012 12:10:33 PM PDT by STARWISE

RUSH: Now, I don’t know about you. I love words. Words mean things. Even words that sound like throwaway words. When Eastwood said, “I was watching that night when he was having that thing,” people said, “He’s senile! He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He couldn’t even remember what that was.” No, no, no! “Having that thing” is perfect. Yeah, “they were having that thing.” This is the perfect way to diminish it.

He was talking about Obama and Grant Park after the election. All these people, the zombies, are lighting candles. They don’t even know why they’re there. They just feel good. But if you ask ‘em why, you’d get spaced-out, Oprah-type answers. And then to throw in Oprah was crying? I mean, I’m sorry, that hits me right in the heart because I have a theory that Oprah’s success is directly related to how much she cries, and I’ve told you this over and over again.

So that one, when I heard it, just made my day. You talk about emotional connections? Clint and I were on the same Zen-like astral plane with that one. “Yeah, I was watching that night and they were having that thing.” (laughing) That just cracked me up. That’s the kind of thing I wish I had said, and to most people it’s a throwaway or some senile old guy who can’t remember what he’s talking about. And he also ripped, appropriately so, Vice President Joe Biden.

Play Clinty For Me

By Mark Steyn
August 31, 2012 3:08 P.M.

Like William F. Gavin, I hugely enjoyed Clint Eastwood’s turn last night, but I’m not sure I agree that it was “unintentionally hilarious” and that “he forgot his lines, lost his way.” Clint is a brilliant actor, and a superb director of other actors (and I don’t just mean a quarter-century ago: In the last five years, he’s directed eight films). He’s also, as Mr. Gavin observed, a terrific jazz improviser at the piano — and, in film and music documentaries, an extremely articulate interviewee. So I wouldn’t assume that the general tenor of his performance wasn’t exactly as he intended. The hair was a clue: No Hollywood icon goes out on stage like that unless he means to.

John Hayward writes:

The intended recipient was not Mitt Romney, the convention delegates, or even Republican voters, but rather wavering independents. Clint was there to tell them it’s OK to find Obama, his ugly campaign operation, and his increasingly shrill band of die-hard defenders ridiculous. It’s OK to laugh at them.

I’m not sure he could have pulled that off if he’d delivered a slick telepromptered pitch.

If you are a Clint Eastwood fan and staying at home over the holidays, TV AMC channel is showing Clint’s movies all day and night on labor day.

Even him ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bill Maher: Eastwood ‘killed’ it

Excerpt:
Bill Maher isn’t among those panning Clint Eastwood’s speech delivery at the Republican National Convention.

On his HBO show on Friday, Maher gave the actor “props” for pretending that President Obama was sitting in an empty chair next to him onstage.

(ALSO on POLITICO: Ann Romney: Eastwood ‘unique’)

“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.”

“People have been saying for years: these conventions are too scripted, they’re too slick, they’re too overproduced,” he added. “A guy who went up there who wasn’t slick … and killed with the crowd? I gotta give him props for that.”

Yep.

A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say, and that’s what everyone who watched will remember: that empty chair.

(With its own teleprompter, which the octogenarian didn’t need.)

I took the messy hair and intentionally bumbling delivery as a poke at Biden. And I still think I’m right.

Our crazy uncle is cooler than your crazy uncle. By a long shot.

The Daily Mos is claiming Clint was really talking about Romney, not Obama....that he punked the RNC into believing he is Conservative. His performance was merely acting. :) Poor liberals....there is so much they just don’t know.

Freeper JoeProBono made the letters. I don’t know how to “clean them up” in Photoshop.

Joe, any chance of “unpixilating” the letters for more definition??

Nothing from the GOP convention this year will be remembered more than Clint Eastwood’s brilliant performance.

Empty chairs are being put on front lawns all across the country.

(Today) Iowans Send Message to Obama (snip)

Greeting Air Force One as it touched down under sunny skies and sultry heat was a hand-painted banner draped across the top of an airplane hangar that reads, "Obama Welcome to SUX - We Did Build This." "SUX" is the airport code for Sioux City.
