Prediction: if Clint Eastwood is actually tonight’s mystery RNC speaker, look for Chris Matthews, Lawrence O’Donnell, Toure, or a producer from ABC News to mouth off about how Clint Eastwood is a “white hero” with his support for Romney being a racist dog whistle to the party that supports George Zimmerman. The pro-gun, pro-vigilante, pro-American party of xenophobes rallies around this gruff hero who must have been drawing on a reservoir of hate when he performed the following scenes. Of course, back when we thought that Eastwood was shilling for Obama with his Super Bowl halftime ad everything was hunky dory. And even if Eastwood himself was merely acting and holds no racist feelings, the fact that conservatives fantasize about being the characters in his movies means that the GOP is ginning up racial animosity.
