Ok. So? Does that mean if Glenn Beck likes him I can't also enjoy his acting?

Right-wing talkers

Just observation and deduction. I see a propensity for obesity. Poverty. A yen for fairy tales. Folks puttin' what few bucks they do have into a little wicker basket being passed around. I think it's safe to say nobody here's gonna be splitting the atom, Marty.

I was offended by the "God" in his speech.

Not really, but that's how conservatards think libs like me think, so why not play along....

When did Glenn Beck stop dying his hair?
 
2014-03-03 09:02:02 PM  
He also thanked Bud Light.

I'm sure they've seen Magic Mike many, many times.

It was thanks to the Rastafarian deity, wasn't it? Didn't McConaughy get arrested for smoking pot and disturbing his neighbors with naked bongo playing?

He didn't say anything about Jesus.

I had my mom over last night.  She's 83.  She kept on talking about handsome this guy is.  I'm straight but I can see he is obviously very handsome.
 
2014-03-03 09:40:08 PM  
I've had my gay crush on him for awhile now. Good to see the right-wingers are catching up.
 
2014-03-03 09:43:00 PM  
At least he didn't go the "I didn't think I'd win, so I have no speech and will just thank my agent" route.

I can see how conservatives might like The Lincoln Lawyer, however.

Glenn Beck: "I absolutely love this guy. Where has he been hiding?"

Well, Glenn, he's a Hollywood actor in an interracial marriage who just won an Oscar for playing a hard-living cowboy who loved promiscuous premarital sex, got AIDS, smuggled drugs, and befriended a transvestite. He can currently be found playing a substance-abusing, nihilistic, atheist cop on HBO.

But the good news is, he started his career as a stoner who liked banging high school girls, so really, he has all the elements of a grand hero for the mouth breathing crowd...

New-found hero?

He's been my hero since he explained to me that thing about high school girls 25 years ago.

Just over 20, it was released in 1993.

Conservatives haven't exactly been too kind when it comes to treating HIV-positive people.

I'm guessing Beck hasn't seen "Killer Joe."
 
2014-03-03 10:39:55 PM  
If you don't clap, how will God know you love Him?

McConaughy also said McConaughy from the future is his hero, but I'm sure they didn't talk about that.
 
2014-03-03 10:39:58 PM  
There was a weird Joel Osteen vibe he was giving off during his speech.

"If the only thing keeping a person decent is the expectation of divine reward then, brother, that person is a piece of shiat. And I'd like to get as many of them out in the open as possible. You gotta get together and tell yourself stories that violate every law of the universe just to get through the goddamn day? What's that say about your reality?"

I bet Matthew McConaughy smells like sweat and patchouli.

I'm guessing Beck hasn't seen any of his movies. Come to think of it I can't really imagine what kind of movies Glenn Beck *does* watch.

I'm pretty sure you could turn Glenn Beck off to him just by asking him, "Hey Matt - do you support marriage equality?"

I've never heard anything about the guy's politics, but if I were a betting man, I'd say he probably does.

I remember listening once long ago, and a caller suggested Fight Club was a good movie and Beck about busted a gut in hysteria. "FIGHT CLUB?! WHO HAS EVER SEEN THAT?"

So wait... Rush and Glenn somehow think that because the audience did not interrupt him the moment he invoked God with a round of applause that it means that the audience was offended by his mention of God?

The "Which agency is he with?" line was pretty good.
 
2014-03-03 11:15:21 PM  
But I thought rich people were all successful because they work harder than everyone else. You mean this "God" gives these people hand outs?

I haven't seen McConaughy's recent work, but it's really hard to want to after "Contact."

I totally hated that character.
 
2014-03-03 11:20:18 PM  
I wonder why they gave him the Oscar then. Was his movie about evil capitalism or homo agenda?

I'm not a huge fan of his either, but Dallas Buyers Club is really farking good.

Dallas Buyers Club, Mud, Tropic Thunder, Sahara (surprisingly enjoyable movie, cheesey, he was good in it),

I need stuff to watch, certainly. Will check said recommendations out. :)

Degenerate man-whore drug addict contracts HIV/AIDS from unprotected sexually promiscuous life-style is given 30-days to live. Learns of alternative medicine treatments in Mexico and embarks on a 'career' smuggling various drugs and/or nutritional supplements which he provides to 'members' of his 'club' which he charges a monthly fee to be a part of, so isn't actually charging for the drugs all the while fighting/avoiding the DEA and other agencies (not to mention Big Pharma) and ends up living ~15 years after his initial 30-day prognosis. Oh yea, he was a raging homophobe originally. It's a true story (or at least based on a true story).

No, it means that Glenn Beck lives within such a bubble that he's unaware of an actor who's been around for many years.

It's a lot like how NBC executives were pissed off at Conan O'Brien when his first musical guest on the Tonight Show was some new band that they'd never heard of.

It was Pearl Jam.

He doesn't specifically address it here, but I'm guessing you're right.

when it comes to gay, straight, or whatever, I'm for anything life-affirmative. I'm for gay power, straight power, male power, female power; everybody should feel empowered without oppressing anyone who's different.
