While some Republicans may have been bewildered by Clint
Eastwood’s address at the RNC, I think they should be happy about
First, despite the unorthodox delivery, most of the delegates
liked what they heard and were laughing and applauding with
Second, the liberal media isn’t complaining aboout Mitt Romney
being an extremist. Instead they’re getting “misty” over Clint.
After Eastwood played the crazy but funny uncle, Romney came across
as a downright normal guy who wants “to help you and your family”
instead of lowering the rising tides of the ocean.
Third, ditto about President Obama. Instead of tweeting about
Romney, he’s tweeting about Eastwood. Again, Eastwood makes Romney
look normal and reasonable, not someone who would willingly let the
spouse of a former employee die of cancer.
Should Romney win in November, Republicans will remember
Eastwood’s speech with good cheer.
