A Fistful of Dollars

Don’t mind us, just want to get that gag on the record.

Close Friend of Romney: Clint Eastwood Is Thursday’s ‘Mystery Speaker’ [US News]

Cue up the Chrysler “Halftime in America” superbowl ad.

Meanwhile, turns out there was a Reagan Hologram in the works, but it wasn’t intended for official display.

Aside from the obvious Star Trek gag*, I would note that the Reagan Hologram was already displayed at the 1984 Convention. Nancy waved at it.

*Okay, obvious to me.

So Clint gets on stage, mutters for 10 minutes or so, and gets off … does this change anyone’s mind?

@nojo: A fake prezidint at a fake convention celebrating an incredibly fake party and party platform.

You’d think the end result would be a singularity.

@blogenfreude: Honestly? Clint upstages Mitt. No way around it.

To be fair, Clyde the Orangutan from “Every Which Way But Loose” would upstage Mitt.

@blogenfreude: Would that be the Clint Eastwood who said this:

“These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage?” Eastwood opined. “I don’t give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of.”

“They go on and on with all this bullshit about ‘sanctity’ — don’t give me that sanctity crap! Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want.”

@Dodgerblue: You’ve just proved that Republicans are a big tent party. See, they don’t object to people expressing different opinions. Where they have difficulty is allowing anyone to mention what their true goals are.
