  • WH disses Clint Eastwood over anti-Obama speech

    President Obama’s spokesman derided Clint Eastwood for his remarks at the Republican National Convention, in which Eastwood made a series of jokes at the president’s expense by pretending to conduct an interview with Obama while only talking to an empty chair. “I wasn’t quite sure what I was watching,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said yesterday of Eastwood’s performance. He prefaced that dismissal by saying, “I’m a huge fan and admirer of Clint Eastwood’s work, both as a director and an actor.” Eastwood made several jokes at Obama’s expense and that of Vice President Joe Biden (whom he called...

    It looks like R2 has gotten into Big Guy’s kitchen again. And this time they’re eating his Twinkies. em>Hey, aren’t those Twinkies a little…racist? You can tell R2 raided the Twinkie supply in Big Guy’s pantry because everybody’s still talking about Clint Eastwood’s empty chair this morning, 2 days after the fact...Anyway, the empty chair threw Big Guy’s teamsters into overdrive. They’ve pulled out all the stops to employ RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Unfortunately Dirty Harry doesn’t seem to give a rat’s patoot about them or their opinions. In fact it may...
  • Rachel Maddow: Clint Eastwood’s RNC Speech Was ‘A Political Disaster’ For The GOP

    Rachel Maddow arguably had the most stunned reaction of anyone in cable news last night to Clint Eastwood‘s speech at the Republican National Convention last night. She followed up on her show tonight, putting particular emphasis on the RNC’s bizarre decision to not air the Mitt Romney biographical video in the primetime slot in favor of Eastwood spending over ten minutes scolding an empty chair. Maddow said that the timing of Eastwood’s speech was not good for the GOP, because they needed the “maximum political impact” from Romney’s speech last night, and it was completely eclipsed by Eastwood’s confusing rambling....

  • Did The Romney Campaign Read Rules for Radicals?

    Did the Romney campaign read Rules for Radicals and apply them to the RNC Convention? Lost in the discussion of the Clint Eastwood evisceration of the Empty Chair character of Barack Obama was maybe the most obvious explanation for why the Romney campaign allowed this presentation: RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. Have the conservatives finally found the backbone to learn something from their liberal brethren? Romney, as a long-time financier and business consultant, understands the...

    When "Dirty Harry" interviewed "Invisible Obama" at the Republican convention Thursday night, Clint Eastwood gained a new kind of fame, as the butt of jokes all over the Twitter-verse. "Idea for a cable drama: Clint Eastwood is a hard-boiled cop that sees his dead partner in every empty chair. It's called 'La-Z Boys in Blue,'"read one tweet. "Give Clint Eastwood a break. ...The RNC asked him to speak about ObamaCare and he thought they said ObamaChair," read another. The actor's mock interview of an empty chair purportedly representing President Obama turned into one of the most-talked-about events of the entire...

    Tampa 2012: In remarks to a chair as vacant as the one in the Oval Office, a Hollywood icon reminds us that the president is a failed employee of the people and it's time to let him go. As performance shtick, it may not have come off perfectly. But judging from the reaction from those "left of Lenin," as 82-year-old Hollywood legend described it during a sort of surprise appearance at the Republican National Convention Thursday, it skewered our absentee president perfectly. "Clint, my hero, is coming across as sad and pathetic," tweeted "left of Lenin" film critic Roger Ebert...

    August 31, 2012 Clint Eastwood puts liberals in full panic mode Derek Hunter Liberals wanted nothing more than to see a divided Republican Party this week, sputtering out of Tampa and limping across the country. They didn’t get that.   What they got was a party united behind their nominee and in purpose.   This unity has caused even more panic than normal.   While waiting to interview former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, I listened to a reporter from CBS ask him three questions in a row about how he’s out of the mainstream of the party because of...
  • Limbaugh: Clint Got Under Obama's Skin

    Hollywood may be bashing Clint Eastwood's performance at the GOP convention, but Rush Limbaugh said Friday the reason is that he touched a nerve with leftist celebrities — and with the president himself. Pointing to the photo the Obama camp tweeted after midnight showing the back of the president's head above the office chair in the Oval Office, Mr. Limbaugh said that proves the White House was worried. And he wondered whether it was Mr. Obama himself. "It must have gotten to him because he tweeted at 12:30," Mr. Limbaugh said Friday on his radio program.

    The Dems are meeting in Charlotte next week. They follow a spirited, zealous scene in Tampa this week. The appearance by film actor Clint Eastwood helped the GOP gathering reach a foot-stomping crescendo. What can they do to counteract this burst of enthusiasm? Here is a suggestion that might prove useful. THEY COULD INVITE THEIR OWN FILM STAR, ALEC BALDWIN!!! Instead of an empty chair, Baldwin could put his daughter in the chair next to Him with a sign around her neck with 'Mitt Romney' printed thereon. Then he could unload on her as only Alec Baldwin could. He could...

    I’ll get to Clint in a minute. First, an important announcement: The R2 Team has officially embraced Alinsky’s Rules as their own! Who knew they had it in them? It seemed as though everyone spent an inordinate amount of time last night practicing Rule #5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” Take Marco for example: Under Barack Obama, the only “Change” is that “Hope” has been hard to find(snip) Hope and Change has become Divide and Conquer. (snip) Just who does that little whippersnapper think he is, ridiculing HOPE and CHANGE like that? As for Mitt himself...ridiculing Big Guy. Who...

    Watching Clint Eastwood's speech (albeit a little late) and oh my god. Who gave the neighborhood grandpa with dementia a microphone? — Hannah Greenberg (@hannahgre) August 31, 2012 When 82-year-old veteran actor/producer Clint Eastwood announced his endorsement of Mitt Romney earlier this month, tolerant liberals could think of only one good reason a Hollywood legend would choose a Republican over Planet Healer and Tinseltown money-grubber Barack Obama: Dementia. The disrespectful armchair geriatricians are back. After his memorable, crotchety, completely ad-libbed convention speech tonight, senior citizen-bashers took to Twitter to deride Eastwood’s state of mind: I didn't expect the RNC to...

    Newsflash: Obama can't take a joke. But we already knew that. For four long years we've waited, hoped and prayed that some young comic would break free of the politically correct demands of The State and mock Obama the way all presidents and all people in power should be mocked. But for four long years (with a few exceptions) all we've seen instead are cowardly toadies of The State: Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, David Letterman, Chris Rock, the cast of "Saturday Night Live"… Since Obama won the presidency, comedy has pretty much gone straight to hell as our Entertainment Overlords...
