Americans have a firm appreciation for sports metaphors. So if one looks at our political process to select the President as the “Super Bowl” then it could be implied that the two conventions are the first and second quarters respectively.
The second half, with both conventions gaveled to a close, will show how each competing team R and D adjusts to address what plays happened in the first half. The Republican’s just had a spectacular first quarter, in my opinion, their best Convention ever, and it is soon time for the Ds to run their game plan.
However, something uniquely American happened during the Republican convention — a new, never seen before play was run. An iconic and extremely successful artist created an original, entirely unique moments in our political history. Clint Eastwood gave one of the greatest pieces of performance art ever seen.
Clint Eastwood knew exactly what he was doing — as both an actor AND director he knows full well how to deliver a message that resonates. As a simple, practical matter his speech will be discussed for a very very long time and that will bring positive focus back to a very successful GOP convention again and again.
But Clint’s true artistic genius was provoking the ready, fire, aim, liberal Obama Administration supporters, and was reflective of how the “take him down at all costs” pack journalism thinks. It was pathetic when they focused on his age as their attack line. So go ahead you fools insult the elderly, use getting old as a weapon to discredit an extremely powerful message done with fantastic humor. That will turn out to be very, very stupid media attack line in the run up to the election. Not to mention, how off the mark it is because Clint Eastwood was out-thinking everyone and was intellectually miles ahead of all of you.
