Mitt Romney Is An Idiot For Letting Clint Eastwood Speak, Explains Clint Eastwood

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player
Hey, everybody cannot be good at everything. Che Guevara, for instance, was very good at being sexy and riding his motorcycle and killing people, but very bad at being Minister of Factories or whatever for Cuba. His Lord High Hairgel Mittens of Romney, in the meantime, is very good at having been born to a wealthy, powerful man, but very bad at being Mr. Manager! Take, for example, every decision he has ever made, but especially the decision to let an 82-year-old man give a primetime speech, without a script.

Who else thinks Mitt Romney is bad at his job? Just Clint Eastwood, in the video above, who says (the question starts at 1:51) that anybody who’s “dumb enough” to ask him to speak at their convention is gonna get a FISTFUL OF EASTWOOD, that’s right, and there’s nothing they can do about it! Then he says he likes Obama fine, whatever, and he’s for multiracialism and multiculturalism, so he is not a racist, which is good to hear. We hate having our sexxxy pictures taken with racists.

"My empty chair doesn't like being laughed at. Now, if you all apologise, like I know you're going to….."

weejee September 18, 2012 at 4:47 pm

Sweet! Obvs Soup's on today.

PuckStopsHere September 18, 2012 at 4:10 pm

I presume Mr. Eastwood is addressing an empty chair, again?

nounverb911 September 18, 2012 at 4:10 pm

Clint's empty chair is more qualified than Mitt.

JustPixelz September 18, 2012 at 4:28 pm

And has more support.

Negropolis September 19, 2012 at 12:17 am

And more legs to stand on.

lulzmonger September 20, 2012 at 12:23 am

Also, the chair/death-squad-financing link is nebulous at best.

Crank_Tango September 18, 2012 at 4:12 pm

I guess we should have all known this was a joke from the moment we saw the words (?) Reince Pribus.

BaldarTFlagass September 18, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Is that what this has all been? Some kind of uber-performance art?

Chet Kincaid_ September 18, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Herman Cain hasn't even bothered pretending it isn't, since he dropped out.

Crank_Tango September 18, 2012 at 5:04 pm

Put it this way: we've never seen Andy Kaufman and any of these yahoos together at the same time, have we?

Tequila Mockingbird September 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Hey, you can't spell Ceebin Reiurps without Reince Priebus!!

Crank_Tango September 18, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I don't think I'd even try!

YasserArraFeck September 18, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Lindsey Graham and Marcus Bachmann want to hear more about that fistful of Eastwood

Come here a minute September 18, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Clint Eastwood also thinks Mitt Romney needs to work on the location of his split-finger fastball.

GunToting[Redacted] September 18, 2012 at 4:12 pm

You know, if you could get Barney Frank and Clint together in the same room, you'd be 2/3rds of the way to a dinette set.

rocktonsam September 18, 2012 at 4:14 pm

so the 47 percent have offshore accounts too?

JustPixelz September 18, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Probably. The 1% and the 47% may also have that in common.

bflrtsplk September 18, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Mitt`s empty chair is more qualified than Mitt.

SorosBot September 18, 2012 at 4:15 pm

So apparently Romney is unforgiven.

emmelemm September 18, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Ba-zing!

SorosBot September 18, 2012 at 4:22 pm

You know, Mittens would do just about anything for a few dollars more.

emmelemm September 18, 2012 at 4:29 pm

Actually (and yes, I do get the reference, BUT) the first thing my mind did was start playing Metallica.

anniegetyerfun September 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

I'd like to work in a Kelly's Heroes reference in here somehow, but I can't figure out…

Ha!

ThankYouJeebus September 18, 2012 at 4:33 pm

His campaign just won the dead pool.

UnholyMoses September 18, 2012 at 5:07 pm

He's got the Romney campaign going any which way but loose …

viennawoods13 September 18, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Mitt can talk to the trees…of just the right height.

lulzmonger September 20, 2012 at 12:31 am

People in his own party have started treating him like a man with no name.

neiltheblaze September 18, 2012 at 4:15 pm

I choose to believe that he torpedoed Romney on purpose because he thinks he's a dick.

Until someone proves otherwise, that's my delusion and I'm sticking with it.

DemmeFatale September 18, 2012 at 4:19 pm

You're not the only one!

(We can be delusional together.)

Not_Mother September 18, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Billionaires For Wealthcare (the formally attired folks that visit OWS rallies occasionally) had these remarks up the next day.

"Of all the fuck-ups the Romney campaign has produced, this took the cake. They were duped into thinking Clint Eastwood would endorse Romney with a speech. Instead, the Clint Eastwood of Kelly's Heroes went behind enemy lines and infiltrated the convention and blew it up.

"Eastwood took the stage, and in a novel bit of performance art rivaling Andy Kaufman, talked to an empty chair, pretending Obama was sitting in it. The convention is now in ruins. Mitt's big night is laying at the bottom of the Eastwood rubble, as it's the only thing people are talking about.

"Well done, Mr. President. Once again, you outfoxed all your opponents. Don Barzini is dead. So is Phillip Tattaglia. Moe Greene. Hyman Roth. The RNC Convention: Today you settled all family business. You truly are a ninja master."

MittBorg September 18, 2012 at 4:24 pm

You probably wouldn't be too far off the mark. Eastwood's an asshole, but he's reported to dislike pretentious assholes. He's also been enjoying himself way too much about this. The last time he opened his yap he was going on about how, at his age, he can say whatever he damn well wants and if anybody doesn't like it they know where to shove it, and I paraphrase. Of course, the alacrity with which Mitt&Co threw him under the bus couldn't possibly have done him any good, either.

ProgressiveInga September 18, 2012 at 4:56 pm

And he has a new movie out so, there's that. ALL publicity is good publicity, etc.

bobbert September 18, 2012 at 11:58 pm

Unfortunately, an asshole that dislikes some other assholes is still an asshole. And so is Clint.

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 3:20 pm

I'm not defending him, just recognizing a fellow curmudgeon.

ChuckieJesus September 18, 2012 at 8:19 pm

Like Mulder, I WANT TO BELIEVE

Preacher_Griz September 18, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Lt Dirty Clint Eastwood is obviously no longer in Communion with God for whatever reason.

Neither is that romney fellow….if he ever was

Guppy September 18, 2012 at 4:39 pm

It's the whole "transubstantiation" debate all over again: did the chair represent Obama, or become Obama?

chascates September 18, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Rowdy Yates is rowdy.

BaldarTFlagass September 18, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Lascauxcaveman September 18, 2012 at 4:28 pm

LOL, I already did that joke on the naked pool party w/sex acts thread this AM.

emmelemm September 18, 2012 at 4:32 pm

To be fair, it's a good joke.

BaldarTFlagass September 18, 2012 at 4:38 pm

I was just playing it for upfists…

emmelemm September 18, 2012 at 5:24 pm

I'm an upfist slut. I upfist all comments except blatantly troll-y comments, and even then sometimes I upfist them before I read them.

Yes it is, and how she has aged him! With her need for continual sexing(and probably shopping too), his making-sexy mind is gone, and his body is soon to follow.

ChernobylSoup September 18, 2012 at 4:18 pm

I can't stop wondering what he needs Obama to pardon him for.

Wadisay September 18, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Shorter version: Please, Mr. Obama, don't take my ass out with a drone strike.

I'm not clicking on that, cause in my mind he's about to explain what that cloud did that pissed him off.

Back in my day we didn't have billion dollar SuperPACs. When we wanted to really hit a candidate where it hurt, we would tell long rambling stories that went nowhere.

no_gravity September 18, 2012 at 4:18 pm

The Republicans thought that they were getting John Wayne with Clint Eastwood.

BaldarTFlagass September 18, 2012 at 4:20 pm

John Wayne was a fag.

HogeyeGrex September 18, 2012 at 4:22 pm

I installed two way mirrors in his pad in Brentwood.

sullivanst September 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Well, whatdya expect from a guy named Marion?

no_gravity September 18, 2012 at 4:36 pm

So how is he different from every other conservative Republican?

M. Bouffant September 18, 2012 at 5:04 pm

Duke libel!!

Guppy September 18, 2012 at 4:40 pm

The oft-repeated story is that John Wayne wasn't entirely popular with The (Greatest) Troops.

StealthMuslin September 18, 2012 at 4:19 pm

Mitt Romney's only remaining hope is that sometime between now and November Barry rapes and murders a white woman.

Geminisunmars September 18, 2012 at 6:32 pm

In public.

Warwhatgoodfor September 18, 2012 at 8:00 pm

At high noon. Outside the local TV station.

With votes, of course.

Mitten's prediction for the economy: "There will be growth in the Spring."

ProgressiveInga September 18, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Jerzey Kosinski libel!

LibrarianX September 18, 2012 at 10:40 pm

BaldarTFlagass September 18, 2012 at 4:20 pm

I can't see that video; is Clint telling us that he Rick-rolled the Republicans? Because if that's the case, that is fucking awesome.

neiltheblaze September 18, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Alas, no – he likes Romney well enough – at least that's what he's saying…. Uh-huh.

arihaya September 18, 2012 at 4:21 pm

They should have let Romney's only other celebrity endorser, Jenna Jameson, gave the primetime speech

Serolf_Divad September 18, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Seriously, Jenna Jameson twirling on a stripper pole while yelling "Vote for Mitt!" would have made for a less disastrous GOP convention than Clint Eastwood arguing with an empty chair. (Though maybe a bit less entertaining for Wonkette readers and John Stewart).

weejee September 18, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Or perhaps try to woo back some of the Supremes and invite John Cook?

Biel_ze_Bubba September 18, 2012 at 10:10 pm

Would have been waaaaay more fun if they'd gotten Chuck Norris and his wife-bot. They do fantastic political commentary for the GOP.

missemish September 18, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Trump is critiquing as well. Oh dear.

Romney makes me think of that line from Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.:
Rosencrantz: I see. Not much new there!
Guildenstern: [shouting] Well, go into detail! Delve!

HogeyeGrex September 18, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Also, too: It looks like it was Jimmy Carter IV who let loose with the Romney "Dickishness On Parade" video.

Yes, as in grandson of the former Pres.

Revenge of Carter. LOL.

JohnnyQuick September 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Lil James: Tha Carter 4

comrad_darkness September 18, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Dickishness on Parade Part 1. There are a lot of multipart video extravaganzas going around today.

Baconzgood September 18, 2012 at 4:21 pm

I think it's time for Clint to bow out gracefully.

anniegetyerfun September 18, 2012 at 4:21 pm

My husband was 100% convinced that Eastwood's performance was a ploy to help Obama and I told him that he was so, so wrong. And now I have to apologize. Fuck you, Clint. I thought you were simply demented.

kittensdontlie September 18, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Clint's endorsement is Mitt's best-to-date:

'Vote for the dumb republicans'.

Barrelhse September 18, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Great news- read Love Story- You never have to say "I'm Sorry"!

bobbert September 19, 2012 at 12:01 am

No. Clint is just an old asshole.

fuflans September 18, 2012 at 4:22 pm

i have a problem with the situation we're in right now

so does mitt clint, so does mitt.

LibertyLover September 18, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Rush Limbaugh advised Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to double down on his controversial remarks made at a closed-door fundraiser that Obama voters are "dependent on government."

On Tuesday's show, Limbaugh repeatedly said that the newly-unearthed video is a "golden opportunity" for the Republican candidate and that he doesn't care how the media is covering it.

Golden opportunity? or Golden Shower?

anniegetyerfun September 18, 2012 at 4:25 pm

To Rush, these are one and the same.

BaldarTFlagass September 18, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Well, Rush has been saying the same shit as Romney said in that video for over 20 years, so why would he advise any differently?

SorosBot September 18, 2012 at 4:29 pm

Oh please Mitt listen to Rush here, keep insulting the majority of the American people.

OneYieldRegular September 18, 2012 at 4:31 pm

If Romney deliberately killed a cute little puppy at a campaign rally Rush would think it was a brilliant political move on Mitt's part and showed him to be "Presidential."

LibertyLover September 18, 2012 at 4:36 pm

I'm thinking that Rush is sounding a little desperate. Of course, he's part of the upper 1% that thinks so poorly of all Americans.

miss_grundy September 19, 2012 at 9:08 am

Even though those are his most devoted listeners and followers…

Pap Finn September 18, 2012 at 4:22 pm

I'm pretty sure that watching the Republicans melt down into molten slag is the most fun I've ever had.

I'll cherish these days, always.

NellCote71 September 18, 2012 at 6:29 pm

I could not have scripted this better myself. And I thought the McCain-Palin fiasco could not be topped for political entertainment.

valthemus September 18, 2012 at 8:45 pm

I take nothing for granted. Stupid people cast stupid votes and there are lots of stupid people around. Don't forget: Steve King and Darrell Issa managed to get elected to office. And someone somewhere is watching "Jersey Shore."

ManchuCandidate September 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Clint Eastwood, troll or GREATEST Troll.

Guppy September 18, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Only if he broke out with "Never Gonna Give You Up" on the RNC stage.

LibertyLover September 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Why is Clint sitting on the chair instead of talking to it?

kittensdontlie September 18, 2012 at 7:23 pm

"If you can't beat them, better to join them…errr….it.

RedneckMuslin September 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Maybe he's just saying it because he wants the 47% to see his movie that wasn't going to.

Veritas78 September 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Aaaaaand, on Wednesday, Ann Romney confides that "If he hadn't paid me $1 million cash, I would never have done that stupid speech. 'I love women?' What, do I look like a lezbo?"

"And he hasn't gotten hard in twenty years. If he loses, I am so out of here."

NellCote71 September 18, 2012 at 6:30 pm

She will never leave that sweet, sweet money.

comrad_darkness September 18, 2012 at 9:15 pm

She'd have to get a job, and move into a significantly higher tax bracket. Poor dear.

gullywompr September 18, 2012 at 4:24 pm

You don't look all that ripped in that photo.

anniegetyerfun September 18, 2012 at 4:24 pm

Che Guevara, for instance, was very good at being sexy and riding his motorcycle and killing people

This sounds like the kind of job I might enjoy. Where do I apply?

Geminisunmars September 18, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Maybe. Better ask them.

Misty Malarky September 18, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Clint went all Beguiled on the RNC.

skmind September 18, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Wait, why is he sitting in the chair instead of talking to it?

JohnnyQuick September 18, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Still think the movies he's directed mostly suck. As the RNC saw, he's better at performance

Barrelhse September 18, 2012 at 10:02 pm

I agree, except for the great movie "A Perfect World."

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 18, 2012 at 4:30 pm

So, in the end, all the Conservatives who said that Clint was really a Democrat when he made the "Halftime in America" ad for Chrysler were right?

For once, a conspiracy theory I approve of.

kittensdontlie September 18, 2012 at 7:20 pm

Under his thin R-candy coating, is his rich D-nougat.

elviouslyqueer September 18, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Then he says he likes Obama fine, whatever, and he’s for multiracialism and multiculturalism, so he is not a racist, which is good to hear.

Well, what do you expect from a Transcendental Meditation-practicing, vegan-eating, non-smoking Buddhist?

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 18, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Has anyone demanded Clint's long form birth certificate?

emmelemm September 18, 2012 at 5:26 pm

He'll get to the voting booth and they'll go, "Geez, we thought you were dead. You're on the death rolls right here…"

emmelemm September 18, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Sounds like my kinda dude.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 18, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Yeah, but he is supporting Romney.

emmelemm September 18, 2012 at 6:31 pm

Or… is he?

Greatest troll, or greatest troll EVER?

Lascauxcaveman September 18, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Well, in his little chair monologue, he was breaking Obama's balls for not closing Gitmo and ending the Afghan war like he promised. So in that way, he's in agreement with the rest of us libtards.

HistoriCat September 18, 2012 at 5:03 pm

In other words, Obama is Unforgiven?

BlueStateLibel September 18, 2012 at 8:25 pm

That was strange and made me wonder when he said it. The cons I know love Gitmo and warring in Afghanistan.

Toomush_Infer September 18, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Well, it sounds like Romney was having a little trouble with the Clint Curve….

Eve8Apples September 18, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Maybe Clint checked his tax returns, remembered he is in the 47% and now knows Mitt doesn't give a rat's ass about him.

Guppy September 18, 2012 at 4:49 pm

If the standard is "doesn't pay income tax," General Electric is in the 47 %.

Nothing like needing a movie to open to get a Hollywood type to Romney on a stance.

rickmaci September 18, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Clit Dickwood sees the handwriting on the wall for him now that that Romoney has proved he is an idiot and Obama will be re-elected. No more Oscars or that Presidential medal thingy except maybe posthumous. Time to work on getting POTUS and everyone else to let bygones be bygones. Sort of hahahahaha, didn't mean it. LOL. Yah, right. Good luck with that one Clit. Just tell the Midiott, it's not personal, it's business.

Yes, we Democrats did love it, now that you mention it…

Edited out was the part where Clint broke down and began blubbering like a baby because Morgan Freeman won't return his calls.

Thank you, editrix, for posting a video that I could watch for more than one second.

"I'd like to see politicians spend less time on TV…" So he wants soundbites cut from three words down to one?

Fox n Fiends September 18, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Perhaps Mr. Eastwood's friends in Congress should spend a little more time in the office until they can pass a bill that the President will fucking sign.

rickmaci September 18, 2012 at 5:43 pm

Twitt thinks it would be easier for him to win if he were Latino. Mittinez? Given all the beaner illegals who have been elected POTUS, I can see how it would be easy for him to draw that conclusion. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/17/mitt-rom

miss_grundy September 19, 2012 at 9:26 am

Considering that the Republicans believe anyone with a Hispanic/Latino surname is a "terrorist", I doubt Mittens could win as a Latino. If that had been the case, why didn't he have the cubiche, Marco Rubio as his running mate?

BarackMyWorld September 18, 2012 at 5:45 pm

I still admire Eastwood's body of work, and really admire Rebeccca's body of body.

Lascauxcaveman September 19, 2012 at 1:19 am

Seconded. Both of them.

Sue4466 September 18, 2012 at 6:04 pm

Anyone else think Clint is working for Obama?

NellCote71 September 18, 2012 at 6:34 pm

I think the entire Romney campaign is working for the wily Kenyan.

Here is more from the interview, according to exclusive transcripts provided by Extra TV, which conducted the interview with Deadwood:

Extra: Deadwood, what else would you like to add, on the political front?

Deadwood: Front? Or back? You never hear about the political back! Well, on the political front, or back, I just want to say—I love peanut butter. And I love broccoli. And I bet I'm the only person you know who loves to put peanut butter on broccoli! I actually like the old spaghetti westerns that I did. Maybe I should do another one. Yes, of course there are little green men on Earth–I've seen them. I also believe in gnomes, goblins and gremlins. I have a whole family of lawn gnomes living in my front lawn. I'm the only one who sees them. I love this weather. What city are we in? GET OFF MY LAWN, DAMMIT. I think I'm going to make one more film, 'Titanic–The Musical.' Screw Cameron's piece of dung–that was a hack job. Mine will be the real story, with music. I have to go. It's 4:30, and it's dinner time. What? Okay, goodbye. GET OFF MY LAWN!"

sati_demise September 18, 2012 at 6:23 pm

Clint is so jealous of Barry.

Wants to keep him off tv and in his office where he belongs.

nowave September 18, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Hmm… Looks a lot like a hypocrite with a crappy sentimental movie to sell/rescue in the wake of everyone thinking he's an asshole. Amy Adams is so pissed at Clint.

Lascauxcaveman September 19, 2012 at 1:22 am

ALL baseball movies are just sentimental as hell. And if that makes them crappy, well, I'm going to watch them anyway.

Never seen a crappy sentimental baseball movie I didn't like.

Oh my sweet bleeding roids. Hemmoroids that is. Here I have been quietly (more or less) lusting in my heart for Becca without actually how old she is/how she looks. Now I get an actual non fixed up pic of her, and OMG. Sorry, just back from the quiet of my bathroom. I would eagerly arm wrestle that old duffer Clint for the right to be her next, well, you know. If you do, please update me, since honest to god I still like looking at pretty ladies, but damned if I can remember why.. Anyway, uh, he's older than dirt, and I'm young enough to be his son. Of something. A bitch, you know. Whoa.

Negropolis September 18, 2012 at 10:49 pm

It really does take one to know one, huh?

ttommyunger September 18, 2012 at 11:38 pm

I can tell from your smile what you're thinking, Becca; but face it, if you tried to introduce him to that fine little pussy of yours, all he would do is talk to it.

Lascauxcaveman September 19, 2012 at 1:26 am

Dude's 84 year old. Used to do all his own stunts, sure, but 80-freakin-4 years old.

Becs probably had to help him just to get to his chair.

I've learned it is all too often the image, not the man, that perchance makes a lady wet.Sent from the Field, not in Garrison.

Calapine September 19, 2012 at 8:43 am

I think we shouldn't talk about other people's love-life like this behind their backs. It's creepy!

Also, isn't Ms. Editrix more interested in the ladies, or have I been misunderstanding things?

ttommyunger September 19, 2012 at 8:49 am

I specialize in “creepy”; have not mentioned love. I suspect our Editrix is an omnivore of the first order, at least I hope she is.Sent from the Field, not in Garrison.

Republicans don't need an opposition, just youtube.

LionHeartSoyDog September 19, 2012 at 1:04 am

I hope that Dina Ruiz is not getting A Fistfull of Eastwood, because at one time, she was the prettiest newsreader in all of Monterey County.

AznMom420 September 19, 2012 at 2:00 am

Does this mean we can book Eastwood for the DNC and OWS and Cinco De Mayo next year?

Smithboy September 19, 2012 at 8:44 am

Eastwood is backtracking since his attempt to be cute fell flat. This hey if they are stupid enough to hire me sounds like a lame excuse to blame someone else for his tone deaf shtick.

miss_grundy September 19, 2012 at 8:47 am

Sure, after making his comments about Obama at the RNC, he is now doing marketing for his new film which comes out on Friday and he has to have the Obama-lovers pay for their tickets or else he won't win the Box Office Derby. Yeah, like I'm going to believe he likes Obama, a-huh……

DahBoner September 19, 2012 at 8:52 am

Che was good at making t-shirts, but bad at talking to empty chairs…

miss_grundy September 19, 2012 at 8:57 am

Unfortunately, a lot of those forty-seven percenters vote Republican, so they still think of Clint as a hero and a man's man.

I think he just did this to win over the Obama voters. After all, he wants the Box Office Derby crown this weekend.

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 3:19 pm

He wants Teh Win! I think of him as a middlingly good director. And an annoying old codger.

Yellerdawg September 19, 2012 at 11:08 am

I liked the part of the speech where he said Obama should have consulted the Russians before invading Afghanistan. Boldest re-write of history ever.
