The hottest ad during the Super Bowl was Clint Eastwood’s “Halftime in America” ad for one of the car makers. It was inspiring indeed.
There was a rumor this week that Eastwood would be the “surprise speaker” at the Republican National Convention tonight, which caused me to take another look at the ad.
Discussion point: In an election year, has his description stood the test of time?
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
