I’m sorry, but who the hell is Adam Levine?
Zachary Quinto…? Wasn’t he in something … once? I have no idea who he is, but while he watched Hollywood’s Only and Last American Icon destroy Obama in front of the entire free world last night, Mr. Quinto tweeted out to the world that he was… “Legitimately scared.”
My favorite, though, was Roger Ebert, who tweeted that Eastwood was “sad and pathetic.” Roger Ebert calling someone “sad and pathetic” is like grass calling someone green.
NBC’s Tom Brokaw ripped Eastwood for using “too many words,” and then probably went on MSNBC to use as many words as they would let him to call Romney racist for daring to tell the truth about Obama gutting welfare. Brokaw tends to bare his aging backside like that nowadays.
Hey, punks, you think mocking an 82 year-old legend for having more edge and sand to mock power and hold it accountable than your entire failing industries have shown in four years makes you anything less than a punk, punk?
You think hiding behind your Twitter accounts surrounded by your “fading Obama posters” and ripping CLINT freakin’ EASTWOOD is going to endear you to anyone but other above-it-all worshippers of The State? You think this is winning?
“What WAS that thing Clint Eastwood just did?” tweeted actress Mia Farrow. “How could they let it happen?”
Film critic Roger Ebert said the actor had come across as “sad and pathetic”.
Adam Levine of pop band Maroon 5 suggested that the veteran Dirty Harry star had gone “nutterbutters”.
Yet not everyone was as disparaging. “Clint Eastwood may be old but he’s still awesome,” opined former Saturday Night Live comedian Chris Kattan.
Eastwood was seen on Thursday addressing an empty chair as if it was President Obama.
In general, though, the Hollywood community was less forgiving, with US actor Zachary Quinto purporting to be “legitimately scared” after his contribution.
“Is Clint Eastwood meant to instil confidence in Republicans?” mused Quinto, best known for his role as Mr. Spock in 2009’s Star Trek film.
“Apparently Clint Eastwood had an argument with an empty chair regarding its political standpoint,” remarked Simon Pegg, another member of the current Trek crew.
“Maybe Clint is a sleeper agent for the Democrats sent in under deep cover to make the Republicans look stupid. No wait, that’s Romney.”
“Clint Eastwood became huge star as a man of few words,” tweeted NBC veteran Tom Brokaw. “As a surprise guest on the Tampa stage he had too many words.”
Well, thank you, Chris Kattan. Considering you’re on “Saturday Night Live” — the show that lost its comedic balls the day President FailureTeleprompter was elected — what you said was more than gracious.
There’s really nothing funnier than a peanut gallery hurling poop. These fifteen-minuters could live to be a hundred and be lucky to get a ticket to a political convention, much less a primetime speaking slot. And of course they mock Eastwood, because they understand the power of mockery — which is why these comedy cowards refuse to mock Obama.
Quinto isn’t scared and Ebert isn’t sad. What they are is furious — furious that the most beloved and respected member of their plantation bolted to tell the truth and knock some of the phony bark off their naked emperor.
Had Clint given the EXACT same free-form performance at the Democrat convention — had he paid tribute to The Master in the exact same natural and endearing way — Hollywood would be celebrating him as a genius and master.
You know, just like Hollywood was doing yesterday.
But today these leftists are doing to Eastwood what they always do to apostates: fitting him into one, two, or all three of these slots: CrazyRacistStupid.
My favorite part? Eastwood reminding Democrats Obama didn’t close Gitmo and reminding everyone else that Obama seriously considered holding the trials for 9/11 terrorists in Manhattan.
It took an 82-year-old legend to not only remind us of those truths but to prove that somewhere in the dark bowels of State-Worshiping Hollywood — there’s still an edgy iconoclast willing to lay it on the line.
