Bits and Pieces - Republican Climax Version

The climax of the last night of the Republican Convention was Clint Eastwood's appearance. The audience applauded much more ehthusiastically than they did for Mitt Romney's almost equally disjointed snoozer. Especially for "I would just like to say something, ladies and gentlemen. Something that I think is very important. It is that, you, we -- we own this country." That got the wildest applause of the night. It was clear that, to the audience, "we" referred to the mostly white people in the hall of proper beliefs and values.

So here's the video and a transcript of Eastwood's comments. The comments look more reasonable in print than they sounded in delivery. The Administration's response: Questions on this sould be directed to Salvador Dali.

Voter suppression in South Carolina.

We expect the lies that the Republicans are shoveling out, and that makes the shoveling easier.

Update: Interesting observation here. This would account for the enthusiastic reaction to "We own the country."
