  •  I never thought of Clint Eastwood, (7+ / 0-)

    who's obviously very talented as a person that's into "gilt by association," -- i.e. that he looks to shine in the reflected glory of someone else.  But, in referring to President Obama as a hoax, he's obviously trying to make himself more important -- as was, perhaps, his tour as the Mayor of Carmel. He apparently considers public officials as elite.  President Obama is a hoax because he's too down to earth.  He's not playing the part of a star.

    Note when Eastwood came on stage, his first reference was to explain himself. "Look at me. And here's my companion whom you can't see." He gave him lines that many Republicans would like to be brave enough to say to the President.  So, what we had there was Clint Eastwood seeing himself in the President but not recognizing himself.
