Make My Day

The crowds at the Republican National Convention in Tampa were so hyped up that they would have cheered a demented cuckoo. So an unscripted and rambling address by Clint Eastwood, mainly directed at an empty chair, received a standing ovation. "Go ahead, make my day", roared the throng, a catchphrase written by Joseph C. Stinson and spoken by the character Harry Callahan, played by Clint, in the 1983 film Sudden Impact. More sober critics in Hollywood thought Clint had done a whoopsie. "Maybe Clint is a sleeper agent for the Democrats sent in under deep cover to make the Republicans look stupid" mused Simon Pegg. "No wait, that's Romney" (CLICK). On Tuesday, two attendees were ejected from the convention for throwing nuts at a black CNN camerawoman and shouting "This is how we feed animals" (CLICK). Republican nutters keep rising to the surface. The grin on Mitt Romney's face is already beginning to look frozen.

The race for the White House is supposed to be neck and neck but the Democrats have yet to have their convention and the televised debates have not yet got under way so who knows, it might be less close comes election day. The Republicans are making their debate at the convention for a change of leadership look ridiculous; their choice of man agrees with this madness and it makes you shudder. The more they try and make him look like a statesman the less he looks like the leader of the greatest democracy on earth. It wasn't just Zachery Quinto who had something to say, his fellow Trecker, Britain's Simon Pegg, also wasn't impressed; he suggested that Clint Eastwood was a sleeper agent for the Democrats, then added that that was Romney. The Republicans have had some great Presidents in the past but if this candidate is their best choice, then they are in trouble. The rest of the world had better hope that comes election day, there is no change of President.

Mitt Romney would be a scary choice for president, a complete dickhead in charge of the USA!

I've corrected my mistake about Zachery Quinto and Simon Pegg. The BBC news item was a bit confusing.
