l am certainly not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama. It was meant to be a message about job growth and the spirit of America. … If Obama or any other politician wants to run with the spirit of that ad, go for it.
Clint Eastwood • Speaking to Bill O’Reilly about the "It’s Halftime in America" Super Bowl ad he did for Chrysler, which has sparked speculation as to whether he intended a specific political endorsement for the ad. He did not. It’s worth noting that, no, he did not support the auto bailouts, and he’s a lifelong Republican who has only voted for one Democrat as far as he can remember: Former California Gov. Gray Davis in 1998. The effective ad, a political fireball reminiscent of Ronald Reagan’s "It’s Morning in America Again" ad from 1984, has drawn scrutiny from some on the right — Karl Rove suggested the Obama administration was using Chrysler to make indirect political ads for them. With Eastwood’s comments, it’s clear things are more complicated than that.

excitablehonky says: I'm not particularly inclined to defend whichever side of the issue Mitt Romney might be on any given day, but I think it's pretty dubious to say Clint Eastwood refuted the "unpopular opinion" expressed in Romney's November op-ed about Detroit with a Super Bowl commercial when Eastwood himself was saying that we shouldn't be bailing out car companies just a week or two before Romney's piece ran. Shouldn't sauce for the goose (Romey) be sauce for the gander (Eastwood)?

» SFB says: You have a handicap we didn’t last night — you’re refuting the point using evidence most people weren’t aware of yesterday (as we were liveblogging), a quote that didn’t surface online until three hours ago. Keep in mind that anything can look less shiny under the surface in the face of new evidence. Now, whether Eastwood actually believes that way or if he was the mouthpiece for a car company, let’s also keep in mind that visceral effect does speak for a lot, too. Which is to say, Eastwood’s voice sold that point, whether or not he was buying it. — Ernie @ SFB

NBC fumbled and the NFL lied because a performer known as M.I.A. felt it necessary to flip off millions of families. It is unfortunate that a spectacular sporting event was overshadowed once again by broadcasting the selfish acts of a desperate performer.
The Parents Television Council would like you to know that it does not approve of M.I.A. flipping them the bird last night. Also, nobody cares what the PTC says.

R&B?

I also feel weird about them identifying her as American. I mean…I don’t feel comfortable enough to say she doesn’t identify that way, but I feel like I’ve heard her speak against that, before. If anyone else has more knowledge on that, I’d appreciate being corrected.

Sri Lankan Tamil-descended multi-faced musical artist M.I.A., whom we referenced for one of her best-known collaborators 10 minutes before we posted this, did something in this photo. She is British and not American, but the post we reblogged this from described her incorrectly. It is now fixed.
