Surprisingly, rich, old, white male Clint Eastwood is fed up with this P.C. bull, longing for the days when (racist) men were (racist) men.
From his new Esquire interview, done in tandem with hot, steadfastly apolitical (at least publicly) son Scott:
It wasn't called racism, it just was racism. The stuff he's referring to is not political correctness, it's actual bigotry. He even uses a Trump kerfuffle with clear anti-Mexican origins to prove his point:
I haven’t endorsed anybody. I haven’t talked to Trump. I haven’t talked to anybody. You know, he’s a racist now because he’s talked about this judge. And yeah, it’s a dumb thing to say. I mean, to predicate your opinion on the fact that the guy was born to Mexican parents or something. He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides.
No, both sides are not using xenophobia to get votes, Clint. One side is. Actually, your side is:
I'd have to go for Trump … you know, 'cause [Hillary]'s declared that she's gonna follow in Obama's footsteps. There's been just too much funny business on both sides of the aisle. She's made a lot of dough out of being a politician. I gave up dough to be a politician. I'm sure that Ronald Reagan gave up dough to be a politician.
All about the money. With a dose of misogyny for good measure:
What about [Hillary]? I mean, it's a tough voice to listen to for four years. It could be a tough one.
He's made some good movies, many bad, but he's an asshole regardless, and that's a shame when an iconic figure so many find so talented is also so, so selfish and ignorant. Well, he's only 86; maybe it's just a phase he'll grow out of.

American Family Association is ever so pissed off by this Hilton ad, showing two men in bed:
Chris Christie offered an angry speech at the RNC that doubled as a mock trial, with Hillary Clinton as the accused:
“We’re going to present the facts to you…Since the Justice Department refuses to allow you to render a verdict, I’m going to present a case now, on the facts, against Hillary Clinton,” Christie added, to chants of “Lock her up! Lock her up!”
Clinton, for her part, quickly responded Tuesday night, tweeting: “If you think Chris Christie can lecture anyone on ethics, we have a bridge to sell you,” with a link to a New York Timess timeline of the bridge-closing scandal that has dogged Christie for over two years.
Christie didn't limit his case to her email scandal, also tearing into Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, ticking off disasters country by country while punctuating his remarks with “Is she guilty, or not guilty?”
The crowd ate it up, roaring back “Guilty!”
Trump's largely unseen kid, Tiffany, made her speaking debut, gushing over how nice her dad is because he would always, er, ask how her family was doing. Intimate!
Better reception than Mitch McConnell got—the Senate Majority Leader was roundly booed:
But I'm burying the lede—Trump was officially nominated. It's over, guys, he is the actual, fair-and-square Republican nominee for president. This country is one step away from blowing.

The Advocate covers Misty Snow, the lady who could become the first trans person elected to the U.S. Senate.
Via The Advocate:
Snow will face incumbent Republican Sen. Mike Lee in November's general election. Lee, a close friend of failed presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, has coauthored several anti-LGBT bills, including one seeking to invalidate nationwide marriage equality, and another attempting to enshrine a so-called right to discriminate against LGBT people into federal law.
Despite her opponent's long history of anti-LGBT rhetoric, Snow says she's not worried about attacks from the Tea Party or other right-wing groups targeting her gender identity. But if those forces decide to make her trans status a campaign issue, Snow says she and her team are ready for it.
While Lee is widely expected to hold his seat in the conservative state, Snow appears undeterred by the odds. She believes her connection with the progressive Democratic movement, energized by Bernie Sanders's bid for president, could help her garner support and donations locally and from around the country. Snow describes herself as a Sanders-style Democrat and plans to focus sharply on income inequality in the general campaign and, if she's successful in defeating Lee, in Washington.
We'd get a trans senator and get rid of Mike Lee? That's a twofer.
