    Default Dirty Harry misfired

    Clint Eastwood's spaghetti western and Dirty Harry movies were fun to watch.

    But his speech on 30 August 2012 in Tampa Bay was a terrible mistake. It was crude and disrespectful.

    It will hurt the person that he was supposed to endorse.

    He drew his finger across his throat in a reference to “having to let people go.” He pretended that the unseen incumbent President in the chair was mouthing obscenities.

    You don't broadcast this to 25 million TV viewers at prime time just before the candidate is announced.

    Bob Newhart should sue Eastwood for trying to steal his routine.

    BTW, I recall another Harry who hurt his party every time he addressed the public at our last GE

    Unfortunately for USA , Eastwood represents the exact demographic group which Republicans hope to woo.

    I like to encourage Dirty Harry following the footsteps of The Terminator to enter politics.

    He will add sparks and dynamism to American politics and indirectly contributing to world peace.

    He got into politics long ago. Was the mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea at one time IIRC. Probably not a lot of crime there to clean up!

    He envies his brother William.
    He purposely gets into controversies to get attention.

    Prince Harry racked up Ł54,000 bill in Las Vegas ... in five days. His hotel room is Ł4,000 a night, (minimum must stay 3 nights).
    This is not counting the cost of his security detail, secret service protection, cost of a large retinue of hangers-on, cost of private jet or first class travel.
    The UK taxpayer foots the bill.

    This is a spoilt brat. A 28 year old spoilt brat who thinks he is still a small boy.

    In some other countries, small boys 10 years old are working long hours to earn a meager sum to support their families.

    Harry serving in the military in Afghanistan? He was not at the front of the battle. Just calling for air support on his radio.
    He never fought in combat.
    Tell us only if Harry has led a platoon in bayonet charge against 200 Taliban fighters armed with RPGs and AK47s.

    Dirty Harry seems to have mixed movie with real life.

    Well, who have said that life is like a stage?

    "Who have" suggests that multiple people have used the phrase, even if they weren't the one who coined it in the first place. Hence, i would say "Gary Oldman" in that Nokia ad
