Who Here Thinks Clint Was *Joking*?

New York Daily News, h/t Drudge:

Clint Eastwood squinted like Dirty Harry Tuesday night as he took aim at Michael Moore.

"Michael Moore and I actually have a lot in common - we both appreciate living in a country where there's free expression," Eastwood told the star-dotted crowd attending the National Board of Review awards dinner at Tavern on the Green, where Eastwood picked up a Special Filmmaking Achievement prize for "Million Dollar Baby."

Then, the Republican-leaning actor/director advised the lefty filmmaker: "But, Michael, if you ever show up at my front door with a camera - I'll kill you."

The audience erupted in laughter, and Eastwood grinned dangerously. "I mean it," he added, provoking more guffaws.

Sitting well out of range at a table in back, Moore - who received a special "Freedom of Expression" award for his anti-Bush polemic "Fahrenheit 9/11" - chuckled.
How, precisely, do you grin dangerously? I'm not sure I know what that looks like.

But something tells me that Moore knows *exactly* what a dangerous grin looks like.

Go ahead. . . Visit my house.

Yeah, yeah, it's all a big joke until Clint drops Moore like a serial killer in a football stadium.

I love that scene.
At least it would be on film.
Ah yes.. The "freedom of expression" prize. Reminds me of the only funny line in Meet the Fockers: "didn't know they made NINTH place ribbons Focker?"

should re-name the prize: "Freedom of excretion" prize, or "Freedom of egg-special" with fries. or "free to use artistic discretion" prize. I could go on. You know I could.
