    Maybe he expects his “subconscious” to do his creative work for him…

    Couldn’t Jeff take a page from GT’s playbook and just rerun his older work the thirty or forty weeks of the year when he’s not working?

    Who’s complaining? Oh, right. Fred MacMurray.

    Hey, welcome back Sarge. I see you have a new ID. Did Go Comics ban your old one? I was wondering what had happened to you. Have not seen you ranting about “The Usurper” in a while and hoped you were okay.

    I remember W represented as the ratty Roman Legion helmet, and Clinton as the waffle. But I don’t recall symbols for any other presidents, just the off-panel voices. Is my memory faulty?

    Yeah, Clint’s head was empty that night. It’s a good thing he’s a great director. Otherwise the republicans would have to say he’s just a dumb actor who repeats other people’s lines.

    @Kaffekup, are you talking about that dreadful Clint Eastwood shtick where he talked to a chair? I couldn’t believe an experienced Hollywoodian such as he would so embarrass himself like that.

    I know. I wasn’t watching the hatefest, but I looked it up later, and was absolutely amazed that he had no script.
    I guess he was so sure that he could adlib it, but I was afraid it was the onset of Alzheimers.

    I think the first symbol he used for a president was … nothing. Just an empty spot in the air sort of marked by an asterisk, to symbolize George HW Bush, “the man who wasn’t there.” Clinton as waffle and Dubya as Roman helmet came later. Speculation was that he would use a halo for O, but he’s never used a symbol for him, as far as I know.

    And like the “halftime” ad, it ended up helping Team Obama. Mitt’s acceptance speech was given the same night but the world did little note nor long remember it. Only the chair.

    The first Bush was a point of light. Quayle was a feather. Gore was a piece of wood to represent his personality. W started out as a cowboy hat and became a Roman legionnaire helmet after 9/11.

    And, as far as I am concerned, the once and future Guard Sergeant will be " Sgt. Soetero".

    His acting never impressed me a whole lot. His directing is very good. His improv? Well, I’d have to say the chair won the debate.

    Eastwood was good, did poorly with his empty chair debate, though.
    Really good in Grand Torino, victory in self-sacrifice.
