Clint Eastwood’s appearance at the National Republican Convention lit up Twitter. Here’s a sample of some of the reaction tonight:
@chucktodd: It does not appear Eastwood is using a TelePrompTer…Guessing they didn’t rehearse this.
@mitchellreports: Clint Eastwood interviewing an empty chair. Is this strange?
@hotlineReid: This is weird…
@garrettNBCNews Senior Romney staff do NOT look amused by Mr. Eastwood’s remarks.
@tombrokaw: Clint Eastwood became huge star as a man of few words As a surprise guest on the Tampa stage he had too many words (I say as a friend)
@politico: It seems Eastwood’s done…
@washingtonpost: Clint Eastwood ends his exchange with imaginary Obama…
@betsyMTP: …That had to be one of the most bizarre moments.
@davidgregory: What I don’t understand is how Romney team running such a tightly scripted convention would allow Eastwood to go off the cuff like that.
@piersmorgan: …One of the craziest things I’ve ever watched.
