Clint Eastwood played the role of the RNC’s dirty old grandpa last night, complete with pervy old man jokes.
Carrying on a long conversation with a make-believe Barack Obama sitting in a stool at his side, Eastwood made nasty references to both Romney’s and his own inability to auto-fellate (“He can’t do that to himself,” Eastwood protested against a a make-believe insult, and later, “I can’t do that to myself either.”)
He also inexplicably tried to take credit for wanting to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for the Republicans. He may not have been aware how much he sounded like Michael Moore, asking of the war in Afghanistan, “Why set a date? Why not bring the troops home tomorrow?”
He also found time to deride Obama’s efforts to try to mitigate the student loan crisis. Y’know—cuz that’s a popular position, hating on indebted college kids and all.
Clint has at times (not all the time) been an articulate voice of reason when it comes to celebs weighing in on politics. Last night he just sounded senile.
