You know he was imitating how Obama talks off-teleprompter when he was sounding frail, right?
@Anonymous: You're kidding, right?
@ Anonymous: I'm not entirely sure what's funnier: Eastwood's speech, or people desperately trying to rationalize it as somehow being successful.
He made Letters from Iwo Jima. If he tells me there's a dragon I BELIEVE THERE'S A DRAGON.
And Cracked got a few entries in as well.
Maybe Mr. Eastwood's met a pooka:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXVwMsk7JK8&feature=related
@Rarer Monsters: Frank Miller made The Dark Knight Returns, does that mean I have to believe that all women are at heart hookers and gays are icky?Although in fairness, I still respect Eastwood a hell of a lot more than Miller.
wat is that dragon?
@UnknownIt's the title character from the 1977 Disney movie 'Pete's Dragon'. The dragon had the power to turn invisible, and generally would not reveal himself when anybody other than Pete was around.
@Sssonic: No one needs make that up. The numbers coming back from Florida say it was.And while on it, Obama validated it via twitter.Done... regardless of what anyone else thinks of it, the guy who it was an attack on gave it value by not only recognizing, but REACTING to it... and the numbers say it was successful.And fair note, having not seen it, I can't judge it myself... only the reactions to it.
@Megabyte: Well, it successfully distracted everyone from Romney. I couldn't even tell you what the RNC candidate said at the convention where his party confirmed him as their nominee for president.
Well, I think that, in Eastwood's defence, it is pertinent to post this link: http://newsone.com/2033655/bill-maher-clint-eastwood-rnc/Basically, it's Maher defending Eastwood on the ground that the man performed a difficult improv routine without a safety net or teleprompter that "killed" with the audience. So, there are some kudos due just on a performance level, as kooky as it may have been.
