He's one America's greatest living legends of the entertainment industry, who is still active.   I will always be rooting for him.

I heard his next film is a biopic about the chair in the oval office. It's going to be called "Memoirs of a Presidential Fanny Warmer". I think it will be a riveting picture!

Same here. And besides finishing movies under budget and on time, here's another reason he's a great director.

FTA--On preferring to begin a take with "Go when you're ready," rather than the traditional "Action!": "`Action' puts a bad connotation out there, like some firecracker that goes off to get everyone going."

He's still one of the best directors in Hollywood, and his acting career will always be iconic as all hell.

If his interaction with politics being surreal and completely out-of-touch with any kind of recognizable reality changed any of that, we'd all be watching Indian movies because Hollywood wouldn't have any actors, producers or directors left.  None of them have any connection to or knowledge of physical reality whatsoever, and know even less about politics.

He's not very bright and he's an equal opportunity opportunist. If it's left and he wants it, he's left.
If it's right and he wants it, he's right.

Other not very bright people see that as "smart".

In reality, it's slimy.

It's not that so much as it is the fact that he recently held a debate with an EMPTY CHAIR. On Live TV. And in front of thousands.

He went full retard, and did so spectacularly.

He has come from playing a co-star in a TV western to one of the most iconic actors of all time, and an Oscar-winning director.  Saying he's not very bright is an extremely absurd thing to say and you should be ashamed to say that. If you don't like his movies, fine. But to say he's not very bright?

Bright people don't talk to chairs or back a douche like Romney and the Teahadis.

My Cousin Vinny won an Oscar.

Chad Krogurt is an Icon. So is Jessica Simpson.

I enjoy his movies. all two of them. the ten "Dirty Harry" style films and the ten "Man With No Name Films". Then of course there are the crappy westerns he directed and a few other Hollywood Shoparounds that he made.

He hasn't directed any "Classics" with the exception of "Unforgiven" which was largely poached stylistically from other and far better directors.

As an "actor"? He's a hack, one note actor. Like Embarrasin' Ford or Douche Willis or Slimevesturd Stalomez or Wesley Snipes..the list goes on and on.

-accents? nope
-range? nope
-Lear? Hamlet? British stage? Nope
-gun slingin' tough guy shootemups for LCD's with low iq's? LOTS..
-couple a real stinkers? LOTS..

So Cliff Eastwind can go give handy washes to Mitch Romney while dressed as Barbara Bush...That's what ol' Cliff Eastwind is good for.

He doesn't back the Tea Party.  He backed Romney because Huntsman was out of the running and Romney was the best candidate(Romney's record as governor is nearly as progressive as Obama's record as President).  Eastwood labels himself an Eisenhower Republican.

Dismissing those with differing political views as unintelligent is like the thing to do on Fark. I can't walk into a single thread without a good portion of the posts playing that tired tune. It's unfortunate and you just gotta sift through it with the other garbage.

Eastwood was mentored by Sergio Leone, so of course he'd borrow a lot of Leone's style. Pretty much everyone who has made a western since the 1970s has done the same thing. Incidentally, Leone's "Once Upon A Time In The West," considered by some critics as one of the best if not the best western ever made, stole from too many John Ford movies to count.

Directors borrow from the people they are influenced by. It's no big secret, just look at Quentin Tarantino.

Quimton Tarantulatino?? zzzz bug faced wanker.

if Driftwood was "mentored" by Leone, it doesn't show in any of his films.

The best thing about OUATITW is that ol' Cliff Driftwood ISN'T in it. And there is a BIG difference between "homage" and "ripoff".
( Merkin Forskinzie and his Potemkin wankathon in "the Unwatchables" is a great example of that kinda thievery..)

Ol' Cliffs makin his own prune smoothies now that his wife is in the nutbarn anyway...whatever..
He's up there on my deathpool, I give him till xmas...then they can stuff his Teahadi ashes in his flugelhorn..

Cliff Beachedwood...whatever... old guy can talk to his chair.

How is Eastwood a teahadist? Seriously? So far the evidence is 1. Registered Republican and 2. Spoke at the RNC

However, to the contrary, you have
1. Lifelong San Franciscan
2. Huge jazz fan (you know, the music that "those people" invented
3. Frequently divorced and longest relationship was with a woman he never married and got quite a few abortions for
4. Vocal critic on the war in Iraq
5. Films frequently take liberal positions on race relations (Bird, Gran Torino), evils of homophobia (J. Edgar, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil), morality of gunplay (Unforgiven), euthanasia (Million Dollar Baby) and the horrors of war on both sides of the battle (Flags of our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima)
6.Huge health nut and environmental conservation advocate

The only Republican views he seems to have are on money and crime.
As for the speaking gig at the RNC, don't you think it's odd that Eastwood, a box office draw with senior citizens, took a speaking gig at an event watched primarily by old folks within 2 weeks of his latest movie opening?
