LIMBAUGH: CLINT EASTWOOD IS STUPID AND POWERLESS
Just saw this at Politico:
The verdict is in from Rush Limbaugh on the Chrysler ad featuring actor Clint Eastwood that stirred up quite bit of controversy on Super Bowl Sunday: "Eastwood got scammed."
"I think he got scammed. I think he got roped into doing something he thought was patriotic and ended up being played. I do," the conservative radio host said on his show on Tuesday. "I'm just going to give him the benefit of the doubt and suggest he got suckered into this."
Right -- because after 57 years in the business, and nearly 82 years on earth, Clint Eastwood is a helpless simpleton who can't read a script and decide for himself whether it's suitable for him. And despite four decades of superstardom as an actor and director, he's so desperate for work he can be arm-twisted into doing something that's not in his best interests. And, of course, he's such a weakling, right? Typical of the SOBs that they'd take advantage of such a nebbish.
All those liberal bullies pushing around a weak, helpless, delicate flower -- yeah, that's it.
UPDATE, THURSDAY: Now it's Fox's Stuart Varney who says Eastwood is a helpless naif who needs to be coddled and protected because he can't look out for his own best interests:
I think it was sleight-of-hand to convince Clint Eastwood -- an icon -- iconic American and known conservative -- to put his face and voice on that ad which looked very much like it was supporting a second term for President Obama. I think it's one of the great sleight-of-hand political operations of the last generation.
Poor helpless guy!
