I guess I will never understand people like her. Life has been very good to her in America, yet she joins the enemy.
I think I understand- she’s lucky to still be getting roles, and she knows it
White says she’s been ‘apolitical’ her entire life, that is until NOW- so not only does she now know what she’s talking about, but Batty is clearly kissing Hollywood butt to she won’t have to sit home alone knitting afghans
How about we just get this thing over with and have a Barbara Bush/Betty White Debate. They could certainly come up with some clever name for it. Now I’d pay to see that, and all proceeds could go to some Animal Relief Fund.
Needless to say, Betty would have absolutely no shot, but it sure would be entertaining!
They’re doing this because, as Alinsky said, “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”. If they can take over the dialog, they can re-shape it to the point where Clint looks like a doddering old fool, blathering at an empty chair out of senility, not as a representation of the Zer0’s lack of presence. It’ll be another “I can see Russia from my house!” moment.
A big part of what made Eastwood’s appearance a success was the surprise factor.
The Rats won’t have that advantage.
Someone please tell Betty that, no matter how hot she thinks she is at 82, she’s not going to need “free” contraception or abortion.
Yeah, that will go over well with older voters.
It will if they can make it about him being an eeeeevil rethuglican. You know those rethuglicans are all about cutting off social security.
Remember, logic is not a prerequisite for the Dems, and doesn’t seem to be an issue for much of the US either.
I predict that well after the election, when emotions have died down and their tears have dried, a lot of lefty actors will acknowledge that every moment of Clint’s performance, including his appearance, was spectacularly well crafted and delivered.
Betty White isn’t 82, she’s 90 (and turns 91 in January).
Betty is in production on her two shows and says she can’t make it per a news story this morning on the tube.
“R”? Why “R” they?
Did you run out of letters or something?
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Even the consideration of answering Clint's message is an obvious indication that the message drew blood.
Like Cankles, she may have enough faculties left to realize this is a rapidly sinking ship, and would be wise to not book passage as a lounge singer...
Why do they need Betty White’s “I’m a lovable simpleton” routine when they already have her male counterpart?
Good Post, but do you mean Obama or Biden?
I used to watch that show she was in with the three other middle-aged women, Hot in Cleveland IIRC.....About a year ago there was a special of a live taping with her and the crew. During it she schpieled for Obama. I turned it off and won’t watch anything she’s connected with now.
Yeah, they need an airhead to tell us to vote for obozo. Clint is a national treasure while she played an idiot all her life which explains her politics.

Maybe she bumped her head in the shower a couple years ago... back when she knew when to shut up
Thanks for the interest, Sten!
What two shows does she have going now? I’m not familiar with them. (Not that I would watch, anyway, just curious.)
I doubt that Miss White had or has the slightest intention of speechifying at the convention....and liberal or not, she probably wishes the whole thing would go away....except her agent probably relishes the publicity.
"She currently stars as Elka Ostrovsky in the TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland and hosts the practical-joke show Betty White's Off Their Rockers."
I really can't see her making the arduous trip across the breadth of this country for a few-minutes gig at the Carolina convention.
She may be active for her age in the familiar and controlled surroundings of her TV studio, but travelling to the beehive of a convention setting would not be the easiest or safest idea for a nonegenarian.
Whatever they do will be nothing but a redo that gets peopole who didn’t see the original to go to the original. They’ll just make Clint’s day.
I called this one - I figured they would try to answer Clint. Probably so did many other folks.
Betty White is about as funny as a 12 year old cussing.
A big part of what made Eastwoods appearance a success was the surprise factor.
Everyone was expecting a speech, and Clint gave a stand up routine mocking the Messiah and the dem party.
“Everyone was expecting a speech, and Clint gave a stand up routine mocking the Messiah and the dem party.”
That was the brilliance of it, imho
“She currently stars as Elka Ostrovsky in the TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland and hosts the practical-joke show Betty White’s Off Their Rockers.”
I saw about that much too. I was wondering who does the writing for that goofy show.
If Betty White offers a rebuttal to Clint it will be written, choreographed and staged by the best the Hollywood left can produce. They’re very good at it. But, whatever they do, it won’t be the original.
1. It’s almost guaranteed to suck.
2. Betty would be better off getting SNL and Ben and Jerry’s to release “Dusty Muffin”.
It’s Clint I’m referring to as ‘82’ in the text above
R? Why R they?
Did you run out of letters or something?
Actually yes lol, you’re limited to 100-characters in FR post titles and this one was difficult to shoehorn in
“If Betty White offers a rebuttal to Clint it will be written, choreographed and staged by the best the Hollywood left can produce. Theyre very good at it. But, whatever they do, it wont be the original.”
Agreed LV, but isn’t it so typical of ossified, inward-looking organizations -like Hollywood- to be beaten re. innovation in their own area of expertise by a brave individual with a belief... Clint
“Yeah, they need an airhead to tell us to vote for obozo. Clint is a national treasure while she played an idiot all her life which explains her politics.

Maybe they can have Cher come out and talk to an empty bed? The fact that someone from HomoWierd would talk against their Leninist culture was what made it so powerful.
