"Get off my Editrix".

You didn't tap that!

BadKitty904 August 31, 2012 at 9:18 am

Well, he certainly made *MY* day…

Terry August 31, 2012 at 9:47 am

Didn't make mine. I ended up feeling really bad for Eastwood. He gave every appearance that he's getting a bit senile. I wish he hadn't given the speech. I also wish that his family wasn't doing that god awful reality show. In most cases, it's much better for an actor to let his/her work speak for them.

bobbert August 31, 2012 at 1:02 pm

A bit?

eggsacklywright August 31, 2012 at 9:18 am

Did you feel lucky?

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 9:31 am

More important, did you GET lucky, punk?

I mean, unless "lucky" is a pet name for his penis, in which case it's all good

Dr_Zoidberg August 31, 2012 at 9:47 am

I feel yucky….how's that?

eggsacklywright August 31, 2012 at 10:00 am

Understandable, there's a lot of it going around these days.

slithytoves August 31, 2012 at 9:18 am

Of all the conventions I have ever watched – that speech was the biggest embarassing train wreck ever. I couldn't look away. Ouch.

jodyleek August 31, 2012 at 9:18 am

Did he show you his onion belt?

Dr_Zoidberg August 31, 2012 at 9:47 am

Well, that was the style in those days.

slowhansolo August 31, 2012 at 10:09 am

Goonemeritus August 31, 2012 at 9:18 am

I’m just sad that one of my favorite directors lost a debate with an empty chair.

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 9:31 am

At least now we know why Hereafter sucked the root.

Terry August 31, 2012 at 9:48 am

I feel like I just realized a favorite uncle is senile.

Tundra Grifter August 31, 2012 at 11:44 am

Personally, I thought he'd lost it after I saw "The Unforgiven." What a cold mess of nothin'. You betcha!

Peckerwood_Pete August 31, 2012 at 9:19 am

"Take these three items, some WD-40, a vice grip, and a roll of duct tape. Any man worth his salt can fix almost any problem with this stuff alone."

That sounds like Dirty Harry meets Chris Hansen to me…

Monsieur_Grumpe August 31, 2012 at 9:19 am

What did he smell like?

eggsacklywright August 31, 2012 at 9:24 am

Yeah, was it Old Spice or English Leather?

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 9:32 am

Old man.

Oh. Like Creed in The Office then.

Peckerwood_Pete August 31, 2012 at 9:57 am

A lot of old people, due to aging, sensitive skin cannot use hand soaps, and oftentimes, do not wash their hands after they take a dump. This is true. They get fecal matter caked up under their fingernails, and it smells horrendous! Not saying this is the case with Mr. Eastwood. But it's possible.

thatsitfortheother1 August 31, 2012 at 10:08 am

He sure was.

slowhansolo August 31, 2012 at 10:10 am

Was he yelling at the sky?

eggsacklywright August 31, 2012 at 9:25 am

Yes – "Get off my cloud!"

Barbara_ August 31, 2012 at 9:20 am

He must have thought that you were the lovely nurse who was going to freshen up his Depends undergarment.

Mumbletypeg August 31, 2012 at 9:20 am

In the last post Rich Abdill quoted The Blaze's remarking how "steady and grit-filled" and "taking steady aim" Eastwood's speech was and now seeing Becca propping the old man up I know the Blaze was not exaggerating perhaps so much.

not that Dewey August 31, 2012 at 10:06 am
Texan_Bulldog August 31, 2012 at 9:20 am

He may have lost his ever-loving mind, but I still love Clint. When he and Willie Nelson die (if they ever do), my hard-bitten father will probably cry.

Mumbletypeg August 31, 2012 at 9:23 am

Nelson and Kristofferson. The last surviving Highwaymen. I wonder what is their secret?…

FNMA August 31, 2012 at 9:26 am

Weed?

Mumbletypeg August 31, 2012 at 9:32 am

Nine out of ten grizzled, braid-&-bandana wearin', dominoes-playin, relaxed-about-tax-filin', guitar strummin' Texas hippies would agree.

(Kristofferson's bio is too long & convoluted for me to sum up in a single strand of hyphenated's but tonight's a blue moon and I love that songwriter more than most so I could get started without much prompting)

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 9:37 am

We could start with his Rhodes scholarship.

I mean, really, of all the professions to see a Rhodes scholar excel in, C&W songwriting????

Weenus299 August 31, 2012 at 9:51 am

The world would have been way, way cooler had Kris Kristofferson said to hell with a music career and won the presidency. He could do that shit. He's one hell of a smart guy. A songwriter who holds the keys to nukes. Fuckin' awesome.

Terry August 31, 2012 at 9:52 am

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train
And I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained
It rode us all the way to New Orleans

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
I was playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues, yeah
Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
We sang every song that driver knew.

That is damn fine writing.

thatsitfortheother1 August 31, 2012 at 10:11 am

Willie looked old when I last saw him. About 1973.

HistoriCat August 31, 2012 at 11:15 am
PsycWench August 31, 2012 at 9:31 am

It's a long story, but an old boyfriend whom I was trying to break up with sought romantic advice about it from Willie Nelson, who he had interviewed for an article. Sorry to say it did not work, but there was a brief period when only three people knew of our issues: him, me and Willie Nelson.
At least my dad got an autographed picture out of it.

Jus_Wonderin August 31, 2012 at 9:45 am

Cool. I wish young Linda Ronstadt could have known about my "issues".

I think that speech has proven to all of us the importance of death panels.

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 9:34 am

May I have sex with your comment? I would normally just take it, but that would be legitimate rape and I want to spawn babby comments with this.

Just because we're holding hands doesn't mean we'll be taking warm showers together until the wee hours of the morning.

FakaktaSouth August 31, 2012 at 9:24 am

I can honestly say I never thought Clint would tell people about how empty chairs tell him to shut up and go fuck himself. I really think the chair (being smarter than anyone else there) was trying to help him out. Also, close your mouth, sir. This is a picture, not a video.

BaldarTFlagass August 31, 2012 at 9:26 am

Good thing you aren't a chair.

EatsBabyDingos August 31, 2012 at 9:27 am

Great. This is the third sign of an apocalypse. If Hawaii gets hit by a tsunami, it will be the fourth sign. God hates beauty.

Dr_Zoidberg August 31, 2012 at 9:48 am

Well, it's not Hawaii, but there a chance of a tsunami near the Philippines this morning.

ChernobylSoup August 31, 2012 at 10:05 am

I was just about to post that. Apparently Dingos is tapped into some wormhole that communicates with the Destroyer of Worlds.

EatsBabyDingos: PLEASE CLOSE THE CONNECTION AND STOP TALKING NOW.

EatsBabyDingos August 31, 2012 at 10:11 am

But now I'm thinking about Romney and an anthill and some maple syrup and a cowboy named Chester with a feathery boa named Rand.

ChernobylSoup August 31, 2012 at 10:13 am

Carry on, then.

boobookitteh August 31, 2012 at 9:28 am

I was going to make a joke about how Clint seemed normal to me – but then again I spend my days working with people with Alzheimer's, but then it took me 5 tries to log in to Intense Debate and I felt a little more sympathetic to the ravages of an aging mind.

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 9:39 am

At my age I worry about Alzheimer's every time I pull the wrong key out and try to open my apartment with the car key.

What were you saying?

boobookitteh August 31, 2012 at 9:55 am

I don't remember. Something about kids these days.

UW8316154 August 31, 2012 at 10:03 am

Hey you kids! Get off my lawn!!

Incitefully_Joe August 31, 2012 at 11:24 am

I'm so glad I don't need to worry about that stuff, what with being young and sexy.

Well, young, at least.

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 11:53 am

Oh, I used to do it when I was young, too. But at least there was alcohol involved.

James Michael Curley August 31, 2012 at 9:42 am

If you use McAfee for protection from internet stuff, check your email inbox for a notice that it needs a fix. Worked for me.

boobookitteh August 31, 2012 at 9:53 am

I had caps lock on. And then did that thing where you hit the keys really hard like you're talking to someone who doesn't speak English. 5 times.

Chet Kincaid_ August 31, 2012 at 10:21 am

Why do you ever log out of Intensedebate? You're not one a them sock puppeteers, are ya?!

boobookitteh August 31, 2012 at 10:30 am

No. I'm one of those paranoid people who sets their work computer to clear their cache, browsing history and cookies every time I log out. That way you are assured that every comment is 100% boobookitteh certified.

Chet Kincaid_ August 31, 2012 at 10:32 am

Wise.

hollyrocks209 August 31, 2012 at 9:28 am

What did the RNC think it was going to get? I don't think they thought it was going to be a stuttering old man who could barely get a sentence out without telling the empty chair to shut up. That was just sad. Watching Eastwood's face light up every time he thought he landed one was sad, too.

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 9:40 am

I think they were hoping he'd come out as Dirty Harry for to entertain the young kids.

BaldarTFlagass August 31, 2012 at 10:09 am

Yes, because the youngs these days are all into them 40 year old movies.

SavageDrummer August 31, 2012 at 10:15 am

He probably was getting an Eastwoody brushing up against Editrix.

"THE GOP – THE PARTY OF B-MOVIE COWBOYS"…

YasserArraFeck August 31, 2012 at 9:33 am

Looking and Clint and then at Mittens, one is reminded how rapidly animatronics is advancing. Mittens acts almost lifelike. Clint looks ready for recycling.

rocktonsam August 31, 2012 at 9:35 am

apparently halftime in Merkkia is over

Terry August 31, 2012 at 9:55 am

Clint does much better with a script and the ability to do multiple takes.

BaldarTFlagass August 31, 2012 at 10:05 am

I just hope the second half goes better for we citizens than it did for the Patriots in that game.

IncenseDebate August 31, 2012 at 9:35 am

I'll bet he was all "ma chair-ee d'amor" and shit.

Lucidamente1 August 31, 2012 at 9:35 am

It was all going fine until he mistook our Editrix for the nurse who gives him his sponge bath.

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 9:35 am

Editrix, how is it in the first photo, Eastwood is clear and in focus and you are not? Do you have a magic camera?

James Michael Curley August 31, 2012 at 9:37 am

He's a bastard, and proclaiming so with his "baton sinister" tie.

freakishlywrong August 31, 2012 at 9:37 am

Oh, and fer fuck's sake, Thank Allah that fucking shit is over.

Beowoof August 31, 2012 at 9:38 am

As any good republican would say, keep those liberals in Hollywood out of the media.

I didn't know that Clint was in Beauty and the Beast (him being the beast).

UW8316154 August 31, 2012 at 10:08 am

I will always love "Clint Eastwood", the actor and director. It's unfair for the GOP to manipulate a vulnerable Old like that.

Great idea. Lacked a little in the execution.

Limeylizzie August 31, 2012 at 10:33 am

Me too, but the throat-slitting gesture was a bit too much.

Could you at least have licked your hand and tried to press down that crazy hair on top of the old duffer's head?

James Michael Curley August 31, 2012 at 9:46 am

I have been playing the political game for over 42 years when some folks asked me if I would consider running for council and I said no because they were republicans. Yet I have never encountered such a disrespectful, inane, abusive and unpatriotic string of babble at an authentic political event.

Mitt should disclaim that performance or I am calling our the dogs of war in my district and they eat somebody who would try to tie them to the roof of a car.

Eastwood-McFly 2012

Peckerwood_Pete August 31, 2012 at 9:58 am

I thought Clint Eastwood was the kid on Back to the Future 3. That's the only reason I stayed up last night to watch. And this some old, senile guy came out, pretending to be Ronald Reagan in late stages of dementia, arguing with the invisible man.

C_R_Trogloraptor August 31, 2012 at 9:58 am

An elderly rich man, arguing with an empty chair representing an imaginary opponent in front of an endless sea of white faces is an apt a representation of the modern Republican Party as I've ever seen.

In that sense, Eastwood's speech worked.

thatsitfortheother1 August 31, 2012 at 10:28 am

If the RNC had only had the foresight to harness a cloud with which to argue…

Eve8Apples August 31, 2012 at 9:59 am

Clint Eastwood's speech was the perfect metaphor for the modern GOP — a rambling, angry, senile old white guy talking to an empty chair. Way to connect to those young, ethnic and female voters GOP! When the chair told him to go fuck himself, he should have said, "OK" and left the podium.

iamrrm August 31, 2012 at 10:03 am

Careful, his tie is the same color as those little pills he has in his pocket. Also, in one pocket is his gun and in the other he IS happy to see you.

Serfville August 31, 2012 at 10:25 am

bikerlaureate August 31, 2012 at 1:59 pm

I want to think so.

The tepid "Maybe it's time to let somebody else sit in the big chair" riff made me wonder who was trolling who.
I like what another commenter here said – he could've been a doing an angry-old-guy character that was too convincing / not sufficiently satirical.

You know, I really shouldn't make fun of Clint for arguing with an empty chair, because I remember one party I attended where someone laced the weed with PCP and I ended up in the basement, talking to a furnace.

Good moves Rebecca, that's how Dina snagged him

ElPinche August 31, 2012 at 11:10 am

Please say he admitted to you that he purposely spoke to an empty chair to make em look bad.

barto August 31, 2012 at 11:14 am

Where'd he get that suit? Jesus, can't he afford a tailor? Anyway, lucky him!

Dildeaux August 31, 2012 at 11:44 am

Paul Lyan suggested K&G Outlet. 3 suits for $119. Alterations extra.

What pending bill does President Nixon fear the most? The one from Robert Hall.

Tundra Grifter August 31, 2012 at 11:56 am

Yes. Too small across the shoulders. Buttoning the top button instead of the middle one didn't help any, either. Also.

barto August 31, 2012 at 11:16 am

I like Cling cuz he appreciates jazz, but JHC on a bicycle he should stick to what he knows!

Eve8Apples August 31, 2012 at 11:18 am

I kind of hope that Clint was fuckin' with the GOP. Maybe they prepared remarks for him. He read them. He was offended and decided he was not going to be their rent boy and recite their lines, so he got up there and mocked them. I can't believe last night's Clint Eastwood is the same guy who appeared in the Chrysler Super Bowl ad just a few months ago.

MissNancyPriss August 31, 2012 at 11:22 am

Weird, I woke up this morning thinking it was a dream.

Steverino247 August 31, 2012 at 11:38 am

See if Clint's in your shower…

Dildeaux August 31, 2012 at 11:37 am

Everything is going just fine. You are talking to an unoccupied chair and, of all things, Chris of Christie decides he needs to take a huge load off and BOOM! Convo over!

carlgt1 August 31, 2012 at 11:38 am

so RepugliKKKans go from worshipping senile Reagan to senile Eastwood?

duh_du August 31, 2012 at 11:38 am

What else did you blow besides his mind?

Dildeaux August 31, 2012 at 11:45 am

Empty Chair, meet Empty Suit.

Tundra Grifter August 31, 2012 at 11:51 am

He may have picked a bad week to stop sniffing glue.

lulzmonger August 31, 2012 at 2:07 pm

If Fellini & David Lynch had a love-child, it would be these pictures.

TribecaMike August 31, 2012 at 6:37 pm

A few sessions of puppet therapy are in order.

Negropolis September 1, 2012 at 3:06 am

Why is every Wonkette picture blurred. lol It matters not the time of day or even lighting, if it's a picture for Wonkette, expect it to be shitty. lol

blatherous September 2, 2012 at 3:51 pm

Rebecca, you have gotten more beautiful.

DahBoner September 3, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Sorry, but I'm not allowed to look at such esquisite beauty.

I joined a monastery and took a vow of blindness…

He'd go on to fly helicopters in the military. When he turned down an English teaching offer at West Point in order to pursue songwriting, his family cut him off.
One iconic moment that stands out for me was when he came onstage to defend Sinead O'Connor after the crowd* began booing her — it was just after that controversy when Sinead tore up a picture of the Pope maybe? Anyway — it reinforced my appreciation of the man's balanced perspective, not intimidated to stand up to a herd unloading their vitriol on a scapegoat, in addition to a lifetime balancing act of versatile talents.

*ETA: it was a stage benefit-tribute to Bob Dylan, w/ many guest performers, methinks~

rickmaci August 31, 2012 at 10:47 am

If you ever meet him, you will be able to define "charismatic" in two words-Kris Kristofferson. Truly a man who is very comfortable in his own boots. One of my favorite pics of all time is this one. http://michellepictures.com/files/2011/12/first-l

Sing it, sistah!

valgal2342 August 31, 2012 at 10:05 am

Sunday Morning Coming Down, If You're Feeling Salty Then I'm Your Tequila, Loving Her Was Easier, Help Me Make It Through The Night. For The Good Times.
All damn fine writing.
Love the story of Kris flying a helicopter over Johnny Cash's house and dropping his demo tape down on the property in order to stand out from the crowd.

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 10:12 am

It was indeed, and she went on to a capella a really fine version of Bob Marley's War in defiance of the crowd.

She did tear up a picture of the Pope on SNL as a dramatization of the child sexual abuse scandal just beginning to be uncovered. Rudy Giuliani, never one to miss a chance to rile a crowd for his own gain, went ballistic the next morning and it was the talk of the town that week.

The Dylan 30th anniversary tribute was two weeks later at the Garden.

The irony is, the audience reaction was mixed, almost as many booing as cheering, and it wasn't that she was upset about the booing but that the entire crowd wouldn't shut up long enough to let her sing and get off. She understood the night was not about her, it was about Dylan and that's what made her mad: the audience missed that whole point

actor212 August 31, 2012 at 10:13 am

And he married one of the hottest women I've ever seen.

bobbert August 31, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Pissing in the Wind. (Okay, not his very best)

DemmeFatale August 31, 2012 at 11:13 am

I loved it when Madonna came on later and said: "Fight the real enemy!" And then tore up a picture of Joey Buttafuoco.

Mumbletypeg August 31, 2012 at 11:19 am

That would be excellently segued into the next post about FLOTUS, if I could manage it.
Liking your avatar pic, also and too~
