Did anyone just watch the RNC speeches?
« on: August 30, 2012, 11:39:10 pm »
I'm stunned. I have no words. I can't take this anymore. Why did I just do that to myself?

Fuck everything.


Also, what in the ever-loving fuck was going on with Clint Eastwood? That was bizarre as shit.

A summary for those of us fortunate enough to miss it?

No summary could ever do it justice. No seriously, there was so much that you guys missed that there's no way to mention it all.

I will mention this, though, because it was the single weirdest thing I have ever seen at a political event. Clint Eastwood got on stage, started talking to a chair, and rambled on about nothing like a senile old man. I have no idea what he was doing or what he was even talking about. It was fucking bizarre.

My grandma and I couldn't even stomach five minutes of it, but here's a summary of what we did see:

-Claiming voting Republican will make the country better in four years then the four years we've had a Democrat

-Giving unconditional support to "job creators"

-Claiming lower taxes for business while not raising taxes for middle class (where the hell is government spending money money going to come from, then?)

-Claiming to protect freedom of religion (we all know what he probably means by that)

-Claiming that Republicans support women (though in this context, it was women business owners, but still)

-Making fun of Obama for caring about the environment by wording it in a way that made it seem like Obama thought he was God

-Pretty much saying 'fuck you' to the future of the planet by saying 'he cares about America now'

-Making fun of Obama for apologizing for invading countries

-Saying that America has liberated countries from dictators

-Massive cheering for anti-democrat/anti-liberal remarks

-Chants of "USA! USA!"

Another highlight was when Romney mentioned Obama's promise to take steps to reduce global warming and the crowd laughed as if it was a joke. (and I'm not so sure that it wasn't) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbkYBGVVpSc

When Romney mentioned helping the poor and the sick, the crowd was silent. You could practically hear the crickets in the room.


Maddow's reaction to Clint Eastwood was priceless.

"I don't ... I don't ... I don't know. It's ... it's there. I don't...I don't............I don't know. That was the weirdest thing I've seen in a political convention in my life. If I live to 100, this will still be the weirdest thing I have ever seen in my life. Clint Eastwood is an 82 year old man, I'm not sure if that's what was going on there... I just don't know" - Maddow

All the respect I ever had for Eastwood just went out the window. Either he's on drugs or dementia has set in. I always thought he was more on the "Libertarian" side if anything. Why the fuck is he whoring for the Republicans, after all it's not like they're doing anything to improve the country, unless one thinks putting road blocks up at every turn will help. Kind of shocked he isn't whoring for Ron Paul, he's the type.

I forgot to mention how Romney invoked Neil Armstrong's death for cheap political points.

I was in a frothing rage for some time after that.

I agree wholeheartedly with your point, however I feel I should point out that capital letters go only at the start of a sentence or the start of a proper noun. When correcting grammar, it's prudent to ensure that your own doesn't suffer at the hands of your own emotions.

So aside from the Eastwood shit, whatever that was, it was just the Republicans going on about shit we already knew they would?

I do know a lot of state representatives had to cancel their appearances because of the weather, plus Donald Trump.
