Social media users are mobilizing to try to get Betty White to introduce President Obama at this week’s Democratic National Convention, and the movement is gaining momentum. A Facebook group devoted to the cause has more than 18,000 likes (and counting) as of Sunday evening, while a petition on Change.org has more than 2,000 supporters.
The effort to get the 90-years-young actress began after Clint Eastwood’s awkward, rambling and nonsensical introduction of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention that involved, among other things, the actor and filmmaker speaking to an empty chair.
According to the Change.org petition, Eastwood, “the Republicans’ ‘mystery guest’ at the RNC, gave a bad name to older Americans everywhere” with the introduction.
As Dirty Harry would say, a moonbat has got to know her limitations. Betty White is not in a league with Clint Eastwood.
How about Jane Fonda? She’s no Clint either, but she’s certainly old enough, and her infamous hatred of America ought to rev up the base.
