Clint Eastwood saved the life of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament's CEO on Wednesday night, the Carmel Pine Cone reports today. "Clint came up behind me, and he knew exactly what to do," said CEO Steve John. "He did the Heimlich maneuver, and he lifted me right off the ground. He's strong! The cheese popped out, and I was fine."
In case you've found yourself wondering about the location of Clint Eastwood's empty Obama chair from his rambling, incoherent speech at the RNC in Tampa, tonight is your lucky night. The chair that launched a million bad jokes (receiving a recent boost from Manti T'eo's fake girlfriend) is now located in Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus' office, which, as CNN reports, is just a "stone's throw away from the U.S. Capitol." CNN also notes that Preibus "gets" the joke and even points out the chair to visiting reporters before explaining to them the various recent failures of the Republican party. So now you know.
Speaking out for the first time since he did that weird chair thing at the Republican National Convention last week, Clint Eastwood, the former one-term mayor of Carmel, California, told his hometown paper the Carmel Pine Cone he had no idea what he was going to say right up to the moment he took to the stage — and beyond.
Hoping to counter the "bad name" Clint Eastwood gave "to older Americans everywhere with his absurd and awkward-to-watch introduction of Governor Romney" at last week's Republican National Convention, an ever-growing number of Internet users hope to convince the Democratic powers-that-be to let Betty White introduce President Obama at this week's Democratic National Convention.
In a largely incoherent speech, Clint Eastwood "maybe possibly" praised Mitt Romney, but mostly he argued with an empty stool, which was supposed to be Obama. It was... awkward. To Clint's credit, he didn't seem to care about staying on script, if he ever had one. He didn't exactly offer a ringing endorsement of Romney, either; after talking to imaginary Obama (which, again, was an empty stool next to him), Eastwood turned to the crowd and said, "Maybe, possibly it's time for someone else to come along and solve the problem." Maybe! Possibly! He's just not sure, but then again, poor Clint didn't seem sure of a whole lot up there.
The standout sketch of tonight's Saturday Night Live was the three part parody of Clint Eastwood's Super Bowl spot for Chrysler.
Here's a trailer for J. Edgar, the Clint Eastwood biopic of the original G-Man, J. Edgar Hoover. Here the gradually Brandoing actor Leonardo DiCaprio plays the conflicted and controversial man, with plenty of heavy accent and face putty.
