Gotta love those Italian directors.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly; 1966, Directed by Sergio Leone
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, indeed.

Time to fire your agent, Clint.
The message was in stark contrast to Ronald Reagan’s Morning in America. Where Reagan gave us Morning and Shining City on a Hill we were treated to Blade Runner.
Where Reagan saw us as individuals, this debacle saw us – recite this together, class – as “coming together” to “do the right thing.”
Where Reagan saw the potential champ in each of us, this comedia dell’arte had Punchinello tell us we are all victims but implied that Cap’n Spevento had us on the right course.
Where Reagan talked in first principles Dirty Harry delivered farce, right down to Clint’s rich Corinthian leather shoes.
Wow! I’ve seen people over analyze things, but this takes the cake! News flash, but the world doesn’t revolve around your frivilous political battles. So to try to interpret some sublimal political message where there isn’t one is proof positive that you ought not take yourself or this blog too seriously.
Dan, I’ve seen your comments elsewhere. I never take ’em seriously. Hey – just a suggestion, mind — You might try spell-checking before you post? Cheers.
