Clint Eastwood at GOP Convention
Original post made by Doug, Old Palo Alto, on Aug 31, 2012
Eastwood's ad lib was like a change-up in baseball...throws off the timing, but amuzing to watch. I disagree that he was off his game. He did what he wanted to do, and it was effective, IMO. If we continue to ridicule him, we will pay the price at the polls, because many people in swing states thought he was right on. We need to counter him with someone (Mike Douglas?) who can ad lib with some acid and humor.
One more week to vote!
Don't forget to cast your ballot online. Voting ends May 29th. Stay tuned for the results in the July 21st issue of the Palo Alto Weekly.
