The kicker in this Toles cartoon is in his daily right bottom corner quip. “Try the word PRESIDENT in that question.”
How often has the media mentioned that 10, MORE THAN TWICE AS MANY, Libyans were killed defending the embassy that Americans?
Sure Clint Eastwood made a good snuff movie about boxing. But he is THE American Icon of our national gungoonery. After spending 10 minutes painting President Obama as a foul mouthed asshole (the direct opposite of what he is), and proving to the world he is not just a Republican but a Wing-nut pal of shit for brains Jon Voight, Eastwood spent the last minute pointing in the air for the screaming Republican audience to chant what he is most famous for, the image of looking down the barrel of a .44 magnum… MAKE MY DAY! MAKE MY DAY! MAKE MY DAY! A standing raucous ovation to its iconic American meaning. I WOULD LOVE TO BLOW YOUR HEAD OFF! I ENJOY KILLING! GIVE THE SLIGHTEST EXCUSE TO SPATTER YOUR BRAINS ON THE PAVEMENT FOR IT IS WHAT I MOST LVOE TO DO! Sure that phrase is now getting dged out by his new one. The image of an old man looking down the even bigger barrel of a 12 gauge shotgun saying, GET OFF MY LAWN! The meaning of which is people on my lawn deserve to be killed. That is what Clint Eastwood IS. It is why he was at the GOP Convention. It is why those kind of people adore him. He is the Ted Nugent of the non hillbilly class.
Now listen to those defending Romney on his shoot first aim later crap about Libya. Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Ted Nugent, Donald Trump, Sarah Palin and every Bush Neo Con who got us into the Iraq war on a lie.
The Eastwood Doctrine.
THERE ARE A BILLION OF THEM AND THEY ALREADY HAVE NUKES! From Morocco to Mandalay. Gosh… Who would have ever thought that the bridge to the 21st Century was leading to a religious world war. Wow…
