4. " When somebody doesn't do the job, you gotta let `em go,"

So, what old Clint is saying that all the do nothing Repug in the House of Representatives and Senate have to pack-up and leave? Good deal Clint glad you noticed.

9. It's truly crazy that they'd approve of that reference to KILLING that Eastwood closed with.

Anyone who has a problem with Paul Ryan's budget, a problem with the end of Medicaid, and crippling Medicare, and gambling Social Security away in the stock market, anyone who objects to what the Republicans will do is worthy of death.

THAT's what Eastwood and the RNC just said.

Interesting, especially since the LIGHT of TEApublicans, Ayn Rand, was a child-mutilating murderer's sycophant, very interesting indeed.

Add all of the hostile and completely OFF-BASE stuff about "go fuck yourself" and it impossible to conclude anything other than that this is an ignorant, paranoid, old-man, who doesn't have one clue about what is happening in most of our lives and doesn't CARE about the future of this country . . . .

a true harbinger of the international financial oligarchy that seeks to further enslave America.

13. Did you expect them not to?

These are the same people(and I use the word people loosely) who, when Rush Limba craps in a bowl and tells them it's chocolate ice cream, gobble it up and ask for more. Some of them are praying that it isn't shit, but eating it anyway. Democrats/liberals on the other hand, will do something like, "You know, this looks and smells and feels like shit; it has the specific gravity of shit and mass spectroscopy indicates a spectrum common to shit - so most likely it is shit and we shouldn't eat it."

15. Yeah, I should stop being surprised by how thoughtless and brain-dead the Tea Party is. & TeaParty

is exactly who we were looking at there at the RNC. Someone downthread said that they are like a virus and THAT is exactly true.

As you said, cognoscere, we are handicapped by the instinct to analyze and describe and think and test. I don't know what to do about that, because it's like anti-matter to that audience we watched last night.

I'm sad to say that I know what you say about eating "shit" IS true, because I have seen it, up close and personal. Self-congratulatory and heartless mindlessness spawns desperate illusions amongst those in need, those who find no thanks, no human reward, no congratulation wherever they go can and do damn themselves to lives of "shit" sandwiches, because they mistakenly "think" that it's that or nothing.

12. I have said, the new RW is like a virus

People catch it and it makes them lose perspective, makes them extremists with aggression. I have to pity them really, they feel like sharks now, but if Mitt gets in office, they will know what chum feels like.

Like a drunk person, so high and on top of the world, wakes up with a hangover and all the money is gone.

14. And we're not supposed to get upset about "Make my day", because that would be "weird" ...

but the truth is that that is how mob-psychosis gets rooted, common stuff, often ostensibly "humorous", nice personas, social rewards . . . and it's HARD to be "the canary in the coal mine" and certainly there are lots of false-positives that make those "canaries" even less welcome, but . . .

It's a LOT harder to change trends once something is established, as is pretty obvious for example when it comes to our inclination to go to war whenever anyone wants to, or what has been going on in "our" financial sector for example, than it is to avoid that drift into, or actually further into, crazy-land in the first place.

17. I agree, prevention would be the best course, but it is too late

And it has been so insidious, you are right, no one wanted to sound the alarm. Remember Ellis in No Country For Old Men?

Whatcha got ain't nothin new. This country's hard on people, you can't stop what's coming, it ain't all waiting on you. That's vanity.


I take that to heart and have prepared the best I can without selling-out. I think if we can reelect Obama, it will mean the rest of the country is aware. If we can reelect him, get him in power, we have a chance. We can only hope the crazies showed their hand too soon.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

11. the twittersphere was pure comedy behind this last night

@invisibleObama was created, as well as @emptychair... I think Borowitz created them, but whoever got those accounts, they were on fire.

19. EarlG, you a consumate humorist, but I think you've forgotten one of the gems.

The call back. Remember when you put Romney in the corner saying "who vetted this guy?". Take him out, dust him off and put him in the corner of this picture. If you never use that call back again, you must, you really must, use it now.

20. Senile old Bastard.

 

Clint can join chuck (norris) as another washed up, irrelevant
former actor turned repubLIEcon, token IDIOTS.

But Weasel and Snake aka mitt and ryan were probably
masturbating over his whole grotesque display of ignorance
and stupidity.

21. You're only tough in movies Clint

Who can't be a bad ass in a movie, as long as the script says so?? Clint stands there mocking a phantom Obama. Here in the real world Clint, President Obama has dealt with some pretty bad ass perps - and won! Go back to your fairy tale life.

22. I don't think that Clint Eastwood is ...


a senile old man. But like most RePUGs he needs to think about others in the country and world. This whole feeling about me, me, and me doesn't look good on him.

Actually, I kind of wondered when his Trophy Wife did that reality show on TV that he was losing things.

But I find it hard to believe that he would do the empty chair thing when it looks like another white man telling the black man the way things should be.
