Ok, I am not a movie fan. Or a TV fan. But even I know Clint Eastwood portrays tough guys like “Dirty Harry” (my husband never misses a rerun ugh) Tough Guy. So when I heard all the hype over the Mystery Speaker for the RNC and that it was going to be Mr Eastwood- I expected something like this
Or the Dirty Harry Make My Day clip- which I did not post as it is already being called racist around the web.
Instead, he attempted to do a stand up comedian routine. Painful to watch. Took me quite some time to get what the heck it was he was doing. Once I got it, it was still disturbing. I was very thankful the delegates gave him lots of applause- at least out of respect. (and manners)
It was painful to watch. Painful. What was the point of that? Was it to play to the elderly who have been thrown under the bus as incompetent but still know better than the kool-aid chugging obots? ‘We might be old, we might stumble and dodder along, but we STILL know better.”
Lots of the conversation I have seen around the blogs are playing it as brilliant! And I saw Obama sent some tweet saying “This Chair is Taken” so it got under the thin skin of faux president.
But cheese and rice. As noted at the beginning, I am not a big movie or tv watcher. And I found it painful and it took too long to get to the point. And I am a pretty average person. I think there are millions more like me out there wondering
“What the HELL was that?”
I had to go back and see it again after reading all over the web how GREAT it was! How Clint “KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK.”
Nope. Still painful to watch. Even though I now know what the premise was. Not hilarious. Painful.
