If “Kudos” is way-last-century, then “Thanks, and a tip o’ the hat!” is ancient history. In any case I say "Bravo!" to crusty ol’ men like Clint Eastwood, who have the courage to bring a little light and hope to an awkward, self-aware convention that had already failed in every way, except for its continuation of the four-year long progression of personal attacks and little more.
In his acceptance speech four years ago, Obama said, "This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal…” It is true, though Obama doesn’t brag, that his reason and wisdom have brought about positive change in global relations. Romney would never attempt to utter anything similar. Just more hand wringing as to how Obama has destroyed our country and failed terribly. Romney thinks American voters are fools and idiots! Maybe I should say, legitimate fools, and real idiots.
Even as the boredom began to mount, up came 82 year old Clint Eastwood, highly regarded actor and director, to tell us that indeed Obama’s response to the GOP is “Go ???? Yourself!!” (I’m taking certain liberties here.) Danged if that doesn’t make sense! In fact, I believe that that is Obama’s response.
Obama is getting to be “As bad as Biden!” Well, Obama gets better every day, in spite of the mediocrity of the patented Republican bland rebuke. But “Bad as Biden”… that’s a darned funny line. Biden, like Eastwood is his own man, and we men recognize that sort of thing. Some of us with just a working knowledge of the streets agree that the Grand Old Party will put many “back in chains.”
I don’t actually think that Eastwood is anything close to conservative. He says that conservatives play it “close to the vest.” For sure the rowdy Eastwood didn’t play anything “close to the vest.”
