A Short Note about Clint

When I see that “Princess Bride” is on one of my movie channels, I watch it. That is was directed by a Meathead socialist never crosses my mind. I liked his dad, growing up with “Show of Shows” in the 50’s.

The same is true when any “Dirty Harry” film, or “Josey Wales” or “Unforgiven” is on tap. I postpone all other forms of recreation and sit back and watch them

But that does mean I went out and bought a S&W .357 Magnum? Or even fired one just to feel the kick? My old Makarov 9mm suits me just fine.

I’ve never once said “You feel lucky, punk?” even once.

Nor has my attraction to scrawny blonde white women increased.

I never bought a product because Clint Eastwood endorsed it. If he ever did. And I sure as hell never voted for a presidential candidate because Clint Eastwood was for him. In 2012 we were both against the same man, but I don’t recall if he ever said anything good about Mitt Romney, just against Obama.

I did say nice things about Miit, and I was wrong. So if Clint did, then he was wrong too.

And we share that one error in judgment, plus a mutual dislike for the same man

There will be millions of people who will vote for Donald Trump this year who I do not need a pledge of allegiance from to be happy about their vote. When I talk about “We the people” I will be talking about all of them, not just the cult followers.

The same goes for the far fewer who will vote against Donald Trump, or actually for the other candidate, or just not vote at all. In every case they will be “far fewer” and that’s all I care about.

If Clint Eastwood likes Michael Bloomberg maybe it’s because he knows him personally. I don’t. Maybe they have strong opinions about “horse-faced lesbians”? Or the British royal family? Who knows?

Also, who cares?

The one place Clint Eastwood and I are entirely equal is that one single vote we have.

  1. Sir!
    I slightly skipped a beat when I read the headline Clint likes Mike.

    Why the unnecessary divisive input?
    What’s up with that?
    As a trend I mean…

    I hate to jump to such a conclusion like the one knee jerk translation that guys like hitler or Mussolini really did a job on making it not ok to unite as a nation.
    Those bits of “evidence” were played right into the hands of those on the “long march” to take down necessary movements that will bring our people back together.

    Just yesterday I was compelled to flame some jerk in Europe for conveniently equating the “final solution “ with Hiroshima.
    To his simple minded end of proving that the one good thing we have at our disposal is bad.
    No different than a failed composer turned “acclaimed music critic”

    In Clint’s case it’s probably that he wishes to be viewed as Smart independent and unbiased
    I dunno.

    Team up America!!

  2. What I meant to say was
    Clinty’s remarks
    Reek of Hubris
    And are decididly unhelpful.

    You are right
    He is confusing his “Fan Boys”

    Sad
    Self absorbedly sad on Clinty boys part

  3. I think celebrities get paid to sway our opinions and I wonder how many people are like me – insulted. Perhaps CE will give explanation because personally I don’t care how much $ Bloomberg spreads around – he’s not a viable candidate – it’s laughable except the show of power ($) since Vegas is terrifying, offensive and since the software glitch – if he did win nobody would believe it.

  4. No not young. Raised in a vacuum – almost zero media or people and in my adult life still trying to catch up when I can.
