Every television station, every radio station, every newspaper …
Every mainstream blog that mentions the topic is being spammed with suspiciously repetitious comments. An abrupt and coordinated attack, endlessly repeating a single message, is like an army, its behavior showing it is thrown into action by a single command, issued by a single commander.
And what is that single message?
That Clint Eastwood is a poopy head.
But it is a stupid command, since of course it generates publicity for Clint Eastwood’s message. For actors and directors, any publicity is good publicity, so long as they spell your name right. Even if they successfully convince large numbers of people that Clint Eastwood is an ignorant senile poopy head, it is not Clint Eastwood that is running for President. Attacking Clint Eastwood is a diversion from attacking Mitt Romney.
So what most likely happened, is that Obama was watching, was offended, and reacted exactly like the spoiled angry arrogant petulant child Clint Eastwood depicted him as being: “Call me a poopy head will he”, thought Obama, “I will show him! I will have my millions of faithful minions call him a poopy head! That will show him!”
But not one of his faithful minions is as funny or entertaining as Clint Eastwood. As Galileo observed, one racehorse can outrun a team of carthorses, no matter how large the team.
Every “um”, “err” and “ahh”, every rambling change of subject, led into Clint’s next punchline with perfect comedic timing, like a clown who trips over his big clown shoes but somehow lands upright without spilling his drink, resulting in mighty gales of laughter exactly at the laughter pauses. Although widely advertised as unscripted and unrehearsed, actor/directors do not do unscripted and unrehearsed in front of an audience of millions.
So what we are getting from Obama’s mighty horde of minions is a bunch of childish badly written whines complaining that Clint Eastwood, a great actor and director, who had the convention howling with laughter, delivered a bad act. When Obama’s minions can get a big crowd roaring with laughter at their enemies, then they might be able to criticize Clint Eastwood’s delivery.
