Clint Eastwood Morphs Into Jimmy Stewart

By on 8.30.12 | 10:31PM

Clint Eastwood's speech was, well, unique.

Eastwood was more Jimmy Stewart than Harry Callahan. He did a bit with an empty chair next to him and Eastwood was talking to it as if it were President Obama. Now that I think about it, Obama does bear some resemblance to a six foot rabbit. 

Well, it didn't matter. Eastwood had some funny moments as when he referred to Joe Biden as "the intellect of the Democratic Party." He also drew laughs when he said he "never thought it was a good idea for attorneys to be President."

The Convention crowd chanted, "Let them go!!! Let them go!!!" after he said, "When somebody does not do the job, you've got to let them go."

I think this makes up for the Super Bowl ad although I never believed for a moment he supported President Obama or that his particpation in the ad was an endorsement of the President.

Well, tonight removed all doubt as to where Josey Wales stands.
