Why not have Jane Fonda address the DNC?

Their answer to Clint.

Ii agree with the poster rooting for Jane Fonda as the Hollywood speaker. Traitor Jane would be more appropriate. Communism supporter.

Betty White has always played an idiot in her acting career. I believe there is a reason for that and her support of Obama is proof.

So will it be ok if we call her a stupid old lady and tweet about how embarrassing she is on stage?

And besides, do they seriously want a person who was typecasted as a slow-witted dunce character for 90% of her career?

Anything that keeps the focus on Eastwood’s performance and message a little longer is okay with me.

They would do better with a fresh face such as Helen Thomas to represent their party...

Clint really bothered them after all. If he was such a dottering fool why the need to counter him? Always the dishonest left. Guess it was to be expected someone would have to balance Clint. He should charge rent for the McMansion he placed in their collective head.

I took the wrong road one day in Northern Iowa while inspecting honeybee colonies. I think I ended up in St. Olaf. There wasn’t anybody home.

Why? I thought Clint was a huge failure, a doddering, senile old fool. Isn’t that what the media told us? Why are they trying to counter him then?

What a sad shame that this woman has degenerated into an elderly foulmouthed liberal court jester. Allen Ludden must be rolling in his grave.

It’s also very sad that women who started their careers as moral people suddenly find it necessary to crawl into the hollywood cesspool of immorality. Cosby made it without foul language, but it sems Ms. White just can’t make the grade. She is a shadow image of the once gracious funny lady she used to be.

Here’s the hypocritical crux of the effort... They claim Clint was a disaster, yet they feel the urge to combat his appearance, thus proving that Mr. Eastwood struck political gold.

There will be so much “spewing” it'll be hard to tell if Hanoi Jane and Hugo Jr. are not on stage.

It is so plain to see the libs are very susceptible to having their Alinsky tactics played on them.

Here recent series have been nothing but soft porn and idiocy. We watched the Cleveland one for a bit but ultimately couldn’t stand it and the “candid camera” spin off was just stupid and crass.

This would be a huge mistake for her. Clint Eastwood’s politics are well known. He has held political office as a Republican and has well known views on politics.

Betty White is another matter, she is not seen by the public as political. Becoming overtly political at this point would discourage people who disagree with her from supporting her as fans.

Conversely, with Clint Eastwood, his politics are already factored into a decision to support his work.

She can lose fans, Eastwood can’t anymore.

In all fairness, Obama had no control over what he was fed as a child. We have a ton of stuff to bust him about; we don't need that.

Yes, I know, they won't begin to treat us fairly but we still shouldn't sink to their level.

Well, yes they are.

And as an extra special surprise Betty will be wearing her version of this classic, showing a poodle humping an empty chair.

why would betty white suddenly go political when her career is finally going well? She would not be well remember for her works, just this dumb political stunt where she is an old lady used as a show poodle.

Kind of the way democrats always use useful idiot old people.

You nailed it, that's exactly what she's done. She got some attention for saying curse words and has made a "career" of it now. Pathetic.

Betty White is a good comedienne, but she is very very raunchy. It might be a good thing for them to have her, as she would not feel at all inhibited by the Democratic delegates who will be parading around as pink v!&*#&s, wearing rainbows, giving people the finger, shouting obcenities, etc.. I say, MAKE OUR DAY! Bring on Betty White.
