Clint's Opening

One of the most revealing bits from Clint Eastwood's rambling comic relief last night came right at the beginning.
“I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking, ‘What’s a movie tradesman doing out here? They’re all left-wingers out there, left of Lenin!’ There are a lot of conservative people, moderate people, Republicans, Democrats in Hollywood.... The conservative people by the nature of the word play it closer to the vest, and they don't go around 'hot doggin' it'.... Believe me, they’re there.” - Clint Eastwood
It's not just true in Hollywood. And it's what's behind my encouraging conservatives to engage in my Stop an Echo campaign. Sometimes, we're too polite. Too quiet.   And people think we think things we do not, by projecting their views onto our silence.
