Clint Eastwood Portrays the American Greatness of Ordinary Americans

Something really interesting is happening at Malpaso Productions, Clint Eastwood’s movie production company. Eastwood’s films, especially in recent years, portray the best in the American character through real stories of ordinary Americans called by events to stand up and shine.

Michael Horowitz Conned the American Public

In his recent testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz showed himself to be a smooth operator. He executed a con with skill and supreme confidence, certain the punditocracy would fall for the con—which they did. If you spotted the con, give yourself a win. You, too, can have confidence—confidence

In terms of common sense and nonsense, the clear winner of the pageant was Julian Castro.
