Skip to comments.Bill Maher Defends Eastwood: He 'Killed'
Posted on 09/01/2012 2:58:01 PM PDT by RobinMasters
One of our many talented conservative video-geniuses really should put together a pro-Romney ad using the many terrific lines from Eastwood's RNC performance. The reason the Left is so angry at Eastwood is because America's last remaining icon brilliantly mocked Their Precious One and they can't stand that.
Though he doesn't agree with the man's politics, Maher looks at what Eastwood did strictly from the standpoint of performance and has to admire what he saw:
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.
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.

There was an earlier thread about this. Someone came on and posted this confirms Eastwood was a plant. Just goes to show how goofy any one of us can be.
I guess it is time for Maher (and Stewart and their ilk) to don their “fair” and “impartial” masks...
Maher has deep ‘thunk’ himself into an abyss. He can’t bare to admit Eastwood scored a winner and his Oblameo idol is being left in the dust.
Headline on The Drudge Report...
Rains wash away ‘Mount Obama’ in Charlotte...
No, what you have is the fact everyone who knows better in the world of entertainment keeping their mouths shut in trashing Mr. Eastwood. Sure the media is trying to trash him and I’m sure SOME comics will but over all you haven’t seen too many tweets or comments from left wingers in Hollywood bashing Clint. Why? He’s a powerful respected Oscar winning director and producer. Nobody is crossing Clint; he’s a living legend in Hollywood with many friends and connections.
After all these fools like to work and pay their bills.
The only people that need to apologize for Bill Maher are the owners of the lead-acid storage battery factory that was just upstream from where his mother was living when she was pregnant.
I confess; I'm one of them who didn't understand the bit until explained later. Guess I'm not just that knowledgeable as a movie buff.
Guess thats it then..Clint Eastwood is an all American genius...but we already knew that. And he spoke the truth.
They need to get some more clay, for the feet.
post # three...
Between Chairman Zero shooting himself in the foot with “You didn’t build that” and Clint Eastwood making it OK to mock him with the Empty Chair speech, I think that it’s actually possible that Romney might win this one.
I see your point, but if that was the case they could just say nothing at all. It reeks of 2008 where the freak left media pretended it had no horse in the race.
For the next fifty years, at every convention season, they will reference Clint Eastwood’s speech. It was an original. It was a classic. And it struck a chord. Tell me the speeches about which this can be said. Bravo, Mr. Eastwood. You made my day.
Oh, and Mr. Eastwood can probably kiss that Lifetime Achievement award from the Academy, goodbye.
What the HELL is that???
“No idea why I’m not getting my hyperlink right. I’ll try again...”
When you want to link to a specific post (number) you can do it either of 2 ways.
The html way is to use the thread’s url and place at the end “?page=(the post number)#(the post number)”, like this:
post #: ?page=17#17
So the whole thing then looks like this:
That’s the link back to your original post.
The second, much faster & easier method, is to navigate to the specific post, place your cursor on the number of that post and right click, then select “copy shortcut” in the pop-up menu.
Then you can paste it into your current post. To make sure it works, make sure it has a blank line both before and after the link.
Try it both ways and see which you like better.
“I confess; I’m one of them who didn’t understand the bit until explained later. Guess I’m not just that knowledgeable as a movie buff.”
My wife had to explain it to me, too. Don’t feel bad.
The little man who wasnt there.
That’s got to be a joke, it makes Obama look like Jabba the Hut.
“For the next fifty years, at every convention season, they will reference Clint Eastwoods speech. It was an original. It was a classic. And it struck a chord. Tell me the speeches about which this can be said. Bravo, Mr. Eastwood. You made my day.”
I heard that when he ran for mayor and got elected he did it for one reason, city hall had been giving him all kinds of grief with something he wanted to do...ran for mayor and fired them all.....if true, I love it, wouldn’t we all love to be able to do that when dealing with city hall....
Watched the whole thing last night and it made much more sense.
Seated in the empty chair was a pooka.
That is exactly what I thought. Unfortunately, your referencing of “Hut” means you’re a racist.
It’s a remarkably bad statue. From another angle it looked like a caricature of Bill Walton the basketball player/commentator, but it doesn’t look from any angle like Obama. If it really is being washed away by rain it’s no great loss to anybody.
