A lot of people believed that Clint Eastwood was basically duped into appearing in a two-minute Superbowl ad which was allegedly for Chrysler...but turned out to be a thinly-veiled taxpayer-funded campaign commercial for Barack Obama.
And it turns out that messing with Clint Eastwood is, unsurprisingly, a really bad idea.
Because the steely-eyed raspy-voiced actor has just given his endorsement to Mitt Romney for president, saying that "the country needs a boost" and needs Romney "now more than ever."
In part, Eastwood says that Romney could help end the divisiveness in our country and assure that "people are not pitted against one another as to who's paying taxes and who isn't." Which is much more polite than saying that a number of prominent Democrats desperately need a good ass-kicking.
In fairness, Hope n' Change doesn't really think any celebrity's endorsement should carry a lot of weight on political matters. But we have to admit that we'd rather have one Clint Eastwood on our side than all of Obama's Alec Baldwins, Chers, Bill Mahers, Sean Penns, and Rosanne Barrs put together.
Especially since we've already seen what that many radically liberal celebrities look like when they're put together: Michael Moore.
In any event, we agree with Clint that Barack Obama needs to be replaced in November because he's clearly out of his depth.
Like Dirty Harry said, "A man's got to know his limitations."
