Given Michael Moore's involvement, it is always good to get Chuck Heston into the mix on lead advice...

I am sorry that I always post political pro Trump items.

So here is a guy with a weird haircut standing almost alone with a few brave souls against a hordeof marauding thieving criminal Mexicans.

Wait a minute!

Okay, with the lead post below, I figured you were playing off that. But is that scene a flash forward to Cleveland? If that is the case, let's set the lake on fire and really get this party started!

There is a whole host of people on my list that could use it right now.

Eli Wallach was awesome. He died too young.

Is that Reince Preibus on the horse?

ricpic said...

Priebus. Is that why he was named Reince, to balance the Priebus?

ricpic said...

Eli Wallach's middle name was Herschel, just so you guys know where the greatness came from ha ha ha ha. He was married to fellow thespian Anne Jackson, a very attractive woman IMO.

I have a whole post about the abortion of the new Magnificent Seven movie. A PC disaster of the first water.

Trooper York said...

Flint quality water.

Is it Reince Preibus or Preibus Reince? Where is Carol when you need her!

I love this camera shot in The Magnificent Seven with the banditos riding over the low walls and the Elmer Berstein score playing.

edutcher said...

The irony is Bernstein considered it one of his lesser scores. He thought "The Comancheros" was much better.

Only when the Cruzzers realize their Messiah is a phony. Or that his "clever" vote poaching scheme has blown up in their clever faces.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

edutcher, with all due respect...

Stop whining. It is beneath you. I am less concerned BTW of a battle between Cruz and Trump, but some third candidate shenanigans in Cleveland with Reince and the GOPe.

Cruz is hardly a messiah. He's a candidate. So is Trump. If you think Trump is better, that's fine. Go with that. My guess is Trump will come out ahead in Cleveland, especially if he splits Indiana and wins California.

While the odds favor Hillary (regardless of Cruz or Trump), we should not count out her ability to fuck up her campaign like she fucked up Libya.

But Cruz's "clever vote poaching scheme" is nothing of the sort. It's called politics. Which is why everyone, including Limabaugh, has said there is nothing wrong with it. The only reason Trump is whiney about it is he thought he would clinch 1237 and that second vote issue would not come up. Is Donald poaching votes when he only has 37% of the primary vote, but well over half the delegates? Of course not.

Trump woke up when Manafort told him what risk he was facing (Cory was out of his depth on that one). So Trump is playing politics and fighting to win the nomination. That is what he should be doing.

I am with you on the Magnificent Seven score, way better than the Comancheros.

edutcher said...

No whining, but the stuff about Cleveland gets old, as does the whining meme - that's what Teddy's been doing now he realizes people don't think he's as clever as he thinks he is.

And Manafort was always part of the plan. If you followed it, Stone was telling Breitbart about it about the time the first articles chortling about how the Cruz campaign was poaching delegates came out.

And my point about scores was not my opinion, but Bernstein's. "Seven" is certainly better remembered, but, when you listen to "Comancheros", you do hear a more thoughtful approach, a variety of different moods.

Trooper York said...

People love the Seven score because it was part of the Marlboro Man commericals and we all miss cigarettes. Just sayn'

edutcher said...

Actually, it perpetuated the score after the movie went out of circulation, kind of a theme of the American West like the main title of "The Big Country" but, yeah, we do love that score.

Evi @ 4:37. Exactly right.

edutcher said...

No, just hypocritical. This is the stuff you've railed against, but, if it helps your guy, or hurts the guy you REALLY don't like, it's OK?

Sure.

But Cruz's "clever vote poaching scheme" is nothing of the sort. It's called politics.

No, it's not. I've been watching Presidential elections since '64 and I've never heard of anybody else doing this. Candidates went by the will of the people in these races, dropped out when they were eliminated. And the fact you defend this would tend to indicate you regard Cruz as something more than a mere candidate.

Which is why everyone, including Limabaugh, has said there is nothing wrong with it.

The only reason Trump is whiney about it is he thought he would clinch 1237 and that second vote issue would not come up. Is Donald poaching votes when he only has 37% of the primary vote, but well over half the delegates? Of course not.


Everyone? That include Drudge, Savage, Surber, Hoft?

No, it hasn't. And it's not being "whiny" when you object to cheating. And the whole idea is Cruz can't win without it. And you're still beating that dead horse when the American people have clearly sided with Trump on the issue.

BTW the reason Trump has 37% of the primary vote, but well over half the delegates is because he won almost all the big states. If Cruz can't win IN, he will have lost every state east of the Mississippi except ME (and we all know WI was handed to him by Paul Ryan).

You can't mount a national campaign with such a marginal record.

You people all thought you were so damned smart, you called us names and lied to us and about us, but, in the end, you just outsmarted yourselves. Now the only issue is, do you support the nominee or do you start pulling for Hillary?
