Agree with all you said and happy to see your article. Eastwood solidified with his true fans why we like him - for his talent and for his being real. It is sad to see so many conservatives try to shy away from his defense. The part that people say was disrespectful, seems to ring false. After all he only was pretending the pres might say that to Romney. Maybe I missed it but I don't recall the same outrage when Biden actually did whisper to the Pres "this is a big "effing" deal" on national tv. Politicians will be politicians no matter their party and most celebrities are going to disappoint their fans off the screen. But to hear people say "Clint was just being Clint" that goes in the good things list.
