but the GOP have ruined Clint Eastwood for me. It is like they killed Superman tonight…and for what
“We don’t have to run against the President’s actual record or have an honest debate about the issues. We can debate an empty chair and say anything we want!”. If you have to either lie or debate an empty chair to win your argument, you REALLY don’t have much to offer.
Lots more like it here.
Clint Eastwood or Grandpa Simpson? (Quiz)
I’ve been a fan of Clint Eastwood. Pulled from obscurity by Sergio Leone, he has risen from spaghetti Westerns to become a first class director. His recent films have been intelligent, moving, and stimulating. They have not recited right wing dogma. “Flags of Our Fathers” tells the forgotten story of how the USA almost ran out of money to finish WWII, was helped by the inspiring photograph of the flag raising on Iwo Jima; it tells the story one of the Marines who raised the flag: Ira Hayes, a troubled Native American whom I first heard of when Johnny Cash recorded a ballad about him, and who was forsaken after the war, died drunken in a ditch. His film about J. Edgar Hoover seemed very fair in its treatment of a figure that was adored by the right wing. And I enjoyed the film about the mother who was sent to an asylum because she refused to recognize an imposter as her lost son.
People with the creative talent of Clint Eastwood tend to be socially liberal.
Most right wing Hollywood types are class B actors devoid of talent, like Ronald Reagan and Chuck Norris.
It is very sad that Eastwood’s latest public appearance was so ugly.
For an interesting article about Ira Hayes, see “The Ballad of Ira Hayes” (http://www.bobdylanroots.com/ira.html. The Ballad was also recorded by Bob Dylan.
Eastwood said, “I never thought it was a good idea for attorneys to become President.”
The GOP should formally call on Mitt to denounce his Ivy League law degree and burn his Bar membership card.
idea for a Constitutional amendment that would require someone to have spent at least three years “working in business” before being eligible to be U.S. president? Doesn’t that disqualify his own pick for v.p.? Seems that Ryan only held private-sector summer jobs while a student, which wouldn’t add up to three years.
I thought I remembered that Clint came out in favor of gay marriage. If this is true, ahy ia hw auppoering Republican? Has he read the platform? I think he may also be prochoice.
He said this in a GQ interview:
“These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage?”Eastwood opined. “I don’t give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of.” “They go on and on with all this bullshit about ‘sanctity’ — don’t give me that sanctity crap! Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want.”
. . .
“I was an Eisenhower Republican when I started out at 21, because he promised to get us out of the Korean War,” he told GQ. “And over the years, I realized there was a Republican philosophy that I liked. And then they lost it. And libertarians had more of it. Because what I really believe is, let’s spend a little more time leaving everybody alone.”
