I’m a huge un-fan of Michael Moore (Fahrenheit 9-1-1’s descent into Trutherism helped re-elect Bush) and I didn’t see the Clint Eastwood speech (A Fistful of Millions?). Still and all …
Speaking to Invisible Obama last night, in a performance that seemed to have been written by Timothy Leary and performed by Cheech & Chong, Clint Eastwood was able to drive home to tens of millions of viewers the central message of this year’s Republican National Convention: We Are Delusional and Detached from Reality. Vote for Us!
Update Okay, now I’ve watched it. Cheech and Chong should sue for libel. Stupid and vulgar about sums it up.
But what amazed me was to hear a Republican crowd cheering the notion of defeat and surrender to the Taliban in Afghanistan. Patriots? I rather doubt it.
Second update Either Ann Althouse has no intellectual integrity whatever or she’s completely lost her mind. Eastwood’s ramble was: “Great! Hilarious… subtle… well-paced…”? Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.
I’d be happy to debate Althouse on Eastwood’s performance, but the last time we were scheduled for a Bloggingheads she backed out because she didn’t find me “playful” enough.
Note that none of Romney’s handlers wants to take responsibility for the debacle. It’s a sad day when a law professor at a top school has less respect for her credibility than a bunch of spinmeisters have for theirs.
