Dirty Harry finally met his match: an empty chair. As a suprise speaker at the GOP convention, Clint Eastwood carried on an imaginary conversation with an invisible President Obama seated in a chair next to him on the convention stage.
“I can’t do that to myself,” Eastwood said several times to the empty chair next to him, pretending, apparently, that the president was telling Eastwood to go fuck himself.
Later Clint said that he thought it was never a good idea for attorneys to be president, forgetting that Mitt Romney is a lawyer too. “When somebody doesn’t do the job, you gotta let them go,” he said, gesturing to draw a finger across his throat.
This is about as sad as seeing a 61 year old Sylvester Stallone boxing in Rocky 6, not the image you want to remember them as.
