Clint Eastwood's Throat-Slashing Speech to the Republican National Convention

Don't let the deranged progressive spin fool you.

Clint Eastwood gave a phenomenal speech at the RNC last night.

Early evidence of this can be seen at the initial headline at ABC News, "Clint Eastwood Electrifies RNC Crowd, Interviews Invisible 'Obama'."

Sure, there were a few awkward moments, perhaps a little too unscripted for that venue, but overall the effect was devastating to the White House. And I mean f-king devastating! Throat-slashing gestures! How dare you disrepect "The One"?!!

William Jacobson has that, "This is not the tweet of a confident man," on President Obama's response to Eastwood on Twitter. And at Nice Deb, "The Narcissist in Chief Strikes Again."

And check over at Lonely Conservative, "Video: The Clint Eastwood RNC Speech Everyone is Talking About." And Maggie's Notebook, "This will go down in history as the best political speech EVER!"

In his quirky, completely spontaneous way, Clintwood has thrown the left into a frenzy of apoplectic fits. See John Nolte at Big Hollywood, "MEDIA STRIKES BACK AFTER DIRTY HARRY DARES TO MOCK OBAMA" (via Memeorandum):
Newsflash: Obama can't take a joke. But we already knew that.

For four long years we've waited, hoped and prayed that some young comic would break free of the politically correct demands of The State and mock Obama the way all presidents and all people in power should be mocked. But for four long years (with a few exceptions) all we've seen instead are cowardly toadies of The State: Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, David Letterman, Chris Rock, the cast of "Saturday Night Live"…

Who would've ever thought that one of the men who would display enough backbone and "edge" to finally take it to Obama with wicked mockery on about 30 million live television screens would be 82 year-old Clint Eastwood? ...
Yeah, that's about it.

You gotta love it. More at Memeorandum.
