Kal Penn pokes fun at Clint Eastwood at U.S. Democratic National Convention
hollywood.com ^ | Sept. 5, 2012

Posted on 09/05/2012 11:43:52 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Movie legend Eastwood hit headlines after his bizarre performance in Tampa, Florida last Thursday (30Aug12), during which the Dirty Harry star chatted to an invisible Obama about foreign policy and economics, suggesting it was time for the President to be replaced by his party's candidate, Mitt Romney.

His eyebrow-raising antics provided great material for Penn, who is now a member of the leader's White House Office of Public Engagement, and he took the opportunity as one of the main speakers on the first night of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina to mock the film veteran.

Praising Obama for his successes during his first term in office, the Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle star said, "I've worked on a lot of fun movies, but my favorite job was having a boss who gave the order to take out (terrorist Osama) Bin Laden and who's cool with all of us getting gay married (sic).

"So thank you invisible man in the chair, for that, and for giving my friends access to affordable health insurance and doubling funding for the Pell Grant (government funding for financially-strapped students)."

Talk to us when you’ve starred in a string of popular movies and won a couple Oscars, Kal.

Kal Penn is one of Obama’s gay friends, isn’t he?

(Nobody has to ask “Clint who?”)

Normal trajectory of a Hollywood career:

1. “Who’s Kal Penn?”

2. “Get me Kal Penn.”

3. “Get me a Kal Penn type.”

4. “Who’s Kal Penn?”

So... the big plan by the DNC is (as usual) to REACT to (and IMITATE) Clint Eastwood’s epic delivery ?

GO DNC. Have EVERY speaker condemn Eastwood.

The ‘funny’ part will be that in the history books, all it took to get Obama out of office was AN EMPTY CHAIR.

He was on House for a while. He's alright.

Overall, I think it'd be great if Democrats followed his lead and started referring to Barack as "empty chair". They actually think we're laughing with them.

Okay.... so in four years, the BEST things he could say about Zero were:

1. Gay Marriage (which he had nothing to do with)
2. Pell Grants
3. “Affordable healthcare” (which hasn’t been implemented yet, and whose prices are escalating daily).

Good work, that.

Eastwood really got under their skin; they can't stop talking about it. If what he did was a silly and ridiculous as they say, they wouldn't be responding so adamantly. The simplicity of what he did was brilliant, IMO. And obviously worked.

Notice how everything this guy thanks Obama for is free handouts? Our money being redistributed.

Was a fun read over at Hillbuzz:

DuJuan didn’t mince words. He said 20 years from now people will remark how big of balls it took to have your male lover go on stage at the Convention in support of you.

He also said that Penn officially outed himself last night.

His next movie should be “Harold and Kumar Escape the Democrat Convention.”

This is the same Kal Penn that was mugged in DC back in 2010, after leaving the administration (don’t ask me what the Associate Director For Public Engagement is supposed to do, but that was his title). He’s a B-lister at best and most people (even those stoners who do like his movies) aren’t paying attention to him. Maybe he should focus on fixing his career instead of trying to mock an established actor (Eastwood).

I think I’m gonna vote for the guy who hangs out with stoned losers from ‘White Castle’ and ‘American Pie’, because raunchy drug and sex “humor” is more edgy than resurrecting the greatest nation in the history of the world.

a synopsis of his breakthrough movie Harold and Kumar go to White Castle...

Harold Lee and Kumar Patel are two stoners who end up getting the munchies. What they crave the most after seeing a TV advertisement, is a trip to White Castle. So from here, follows a journey for the burgers they require. On their way they will encounter many obstacles including a raccoon, a racist officer, and a horny Neil Patrick Harris.

Having watched it I can confirm it is as bad as it sounds.

What kills me is how thoroughly unoriginal leftists are. They must get their emails with the theme of the day from Obama and run with it. Do a Google search on “Eastwood & bizarre” and see how many millions of hits pop up. If the writer uses the term bizarre to describe Clint's speech (or lies to describe Ryan's) it just confirms that they are on the DNC talking points email list. Talk about repeating a lie often enough. The dems have it down to a science.

Kal Penn is bi-sexual? Then what does he have to celebrate?

Same sex marriage or traditional marriage would require him to “deny” have his sexual being. Polygamy is the only answer for someone who feels entitled to “one of each”.

When I saw the headline, I said, “What is a Kal Penn?” Honestly, I have no idea of who this individual is. Furthermore, I have no desire to find out who he is.
