This WILL "make my day". Clint Eastwood to speak to RNC tonight State, National, International, posted by stinky, a resident of the Another Pleasanton neighborhood neighborhood, on Aug 30, 2012 at 11:21 am
Rumors are swirling, the RNC has a speaking slot tonight, right before FL Senator Marco Rubio introduces Mitt Romney. The name of the speaker, officialy, is TBA
The unofficial consensus is firming up. The speaker will be none other than Dirty Harry himself, Clint Eastwood

I am (although slightly tarnished now)a Clint fan. I know his politics were on the right side, more of a libertarian . However, his speech was inappropriate.
Personally, I don't think much of an entertainer that pushes his/her politics. This includes Chuck Norris and Barbra Streisand. Raising awareness for environmental issues and the sort is one thing, but Clint's uncouth speech is another.

I have been and still am a Clint Eastwood fan, but there is no denying that the other night's speech was not his best performance. I'm more upset with Romney's campaign staff for putting Eastwood up on the stage like that without going over his speech in advance or at least getting Eastwood to outline his speech to them. They did both Clint Eastwood and themselves a great disservice.
James Lipton had some insightful comments on Eastwood's speech:

Well let's see, he is 82 years old, he looked a bit crumpled and sounded a little bit the same. I will give him a break for some of the stumbling because it didn't seem as if it was a rehearsed bit. Point of it all is, Obama was indeed sitting in that chair on the stage. It's just that everybody see's right through him.
