Great marketing is built on the element of surprise. Whenever Steve Jobs was ready to bring his brand of shock and awe to the marketplace, he wasn’t tipping his hand in advance nor was he going through the play-it-by the rulebook product launch that is the gospel at the P&G’s of the world.
He would take you by surprise and blow you away in the process.
Precisely what Eastwood did when he drew a line in the sand at the RNC: you’ve blown it for too long ObamaRama. It’s time to get out of Dodge.
What infuriates the freaks, the cry babies, the New York Times sycophants is that unlike the ass-kisser red carpet drones the Democrats line up to tout the magic of a man who throws darts at their wealth every day, Eastwood is different.
He is what the libs want to claim they have a lock and key on. Although he is rich and successful, Clint has never lost the “everyman” persona the Obama zombies claim to shield from the harsh realities of life. If Streep, DiCaprio, DeNiro came out for America (as Clint so triumphantly did), the Pelosi Pack could claim that he was just another actor\director–Romney’s one against their crimson tide.
But what the left knows — as it contorts itself into limp pretzels trying to minimize the power of the Clint Knockout–is that there is only one Eastwood. One Dirty Harry. One iconic star with blue collar cred to walk into a union hall or a steel mill, be one of the guys and the only one living on nutso land that they can truly relate to. Whose words they would soak up. Whose opinions they would share.
Obama has to buy his way into those courts of working class Americans. Clint can just amble in and they’ll be happy to buy him a Bud. Or three.
Clint was unscripted, unapologetic, unkind, disrespectful and disgusted. He mirrored the tortured feelings of lessor known millions. He was their voice, a true reflection of the loss and anger one feels when we see our nation and it’s a liberties slipping away to a mobster determined to hold on to the plane, the White House and to finish the job of making America pay for its success.
Reid & Co would have given anything shy of his Ritz suite for Clint to have performed his magic at their freak show. They haven’t had a moment like that since Lewinsky left Clint-on.Email This Post
