Clint Eastwood's Speech

If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know I do not tend to get very political.  However after watching Clint Eastwood's speech last night, I felt.......sad.  I am not commenting about the man's political views.  I just think his performance last night was sad on a personal level for him.  Clint seemed to come across as an old guy that was lost and was barely making any sense.  I felt bad for the guy.  It was like a very slow motion train wreck.  The speech was ad-libed, but came across as rambling and incoherent.  I always appreciate some grey area humor, but Clint seemed to go over the line, not only once but twice.  I think that was stooping too low for the context.  It only made the speech even more humiliating and pathetic.  He did nothing but tarnish his brand and maybe Romney's too.   Some people seem to just age gracefully, while other do not.  I always respected Johnny Carson because he knew when to get out.  He had the sense to quit while on top.

I would love to hear your thoughts...


  1. Yep, you're right. He is an old guy and entitled to his opinion and political choices. My opinion is that if he had showed up at the Democratic convention, he would have been hailed as a hero. :)

  2. I so agree with every thing you said paul...Pathetic to say the least.
