Clint Still Has the Guts that Punks Lack

This complaint works both ways you know. I am amused by the Progressive critique of Clint when every other day some Hollywood type speaks up rather foolishly on issues with which they are not familiar, but they are not critiqued at all. In fact, Hollywood types frequently are invited by other Hollywood types (e.g. guests on Letterman) and the MSM to speak their minds when it goes along with a progressive meme. I am sure you are completely consistent though and frequently point out the flaws in the performances or the silliness of the arguments of those who agree with your positions because you would not want to be seen as a hypocrite yourself right?

Theater review on Townhall Finance? Hey, it’s a holiday. Anyway, bizarre deviations from the script are cool! Just ask Clint Eastwood.

Old, new, and social media are abuzz deconstructing Eastwood’s performance at the Republican Convention.

Brilliant? Senile? Disastrous?

The right answer is it was a triumph, a gutsy one. In immediate impact, substance, lingering effect, and the personal risk of the messenger, it was a unique accomplishment that has already added a new meme to the campaign: The empty chair.
