Ohio just got a little harder to win for the GOP

I've been watching these conventions for quite a few years now.
Eastwood has been GOP for as long as I can remember, he was Mayor of a resort town, he fought the environmentalists for some development. He may be pro choice and not anti-gay. I do think the GOP organizers may regret letting him lose. One positive is that no one will say Romney gave the worst performance. I do think Eastwood is fair game. He put himself front and center. It's not like he was out in public and a reported ambushed him. Also, whatever one thinks of Obama, it was ackward having The President demeaned and mocked on TV. Both Ann Romney and Mrs. Ryan were not liking it.

Do you think the GOP kidnapped and forced this no name 82 year old to speak?

Yeah, seriously. We're not talking about random grampa who was accosted while doing grocery shopping and now the mean internets are making fun of him on YouTube. It's a professional and extremely influential man who elected to come and be the marquee big surprise speaker.

Apparently, this post is now racist and hypocritical.

Oh, sorry I forgot, silly of me. This is the witchhunt against 82 year olds thread.

I dunno, let's re-exhume Reagan and take the piss out of his Alzheimers, why not?

Within Hollywood, Eastwood has a ton of clout. He's influential in ways that other Republican celebrities, like Jon Voigt are not because nobody cares about them or their opinions. Clint is a star which is why he was there.

If you stopped dividing the world into liberals and conservatives, maybe you'd be able to think about it.

Which is funny, 'cause I thought the GOP hated it when celebrity culture intervened in politics.

Posting a gif of Eastwood making a WTF face from one of his movies is hardly mocking some random 82-year-old. And if it turned out he was suffering dementia or something, I'd certainly be sad about that. But from what I understand, he was ad-libbing much of it, which just did not come across well at all. But at least I'm relieved that no one got paid to write that. Because it was some serious wtf-erry.

I'm perfectly happy to mock whoever thought it was a good idea to bring out a guy who supports same-sex marriage and a few other things that cause such conservative pearl-clutching as a surprise speaker to rally the crowd .... and apparently also thought it was a fine idea to let him wing it.
