Clint Eastwood is the perfect icon for the GOP, Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin said Tuesday, describing the legendary actor as an old angry white man spewing incoherent nonsense.
The Des Moines Register reported the 72-year-old Harkin made his comments on the Iowa delegations breakfast this morning in Charlotte, N.C.
Weve got our work cut out for us this week, folks, following the Republican convention, Harkin told the delegates. I mean, how are we ever going to match Clint Eastwood? I got to thinking he is the perfect icon for todays Republican tea party: an old angry white man spewing incoherent nonsense.
Eastwood delivered a puzzling and polarizing unscripted address at the Republican National Convention last week in Tampa, endorsing GOP nominee Mitt Romney while espousing positions contrary to Romneys stance, and yelling at an empty chair that an imaginary President Barack Obama was sitting in....

Harkin isn’t fit to wash Eastwood’s socks. Get a job Tommy.
Cint Eastwood biggest Brain in in entertainment...I really dont think they liked what he said. They always envy greatness and hate the truth..
I can’t believe this POS is one of my senators. Ugh.
Iowans need to take out the trash at his next election!
And what was Andy Griffith's rant during the 2008 scampaign, Tom?
“Eastwood delivered a puzzling and polarizing unscripted address at the Republican National Convention last week in Tampa, endorsing GOP nominee Mitt Romney while espousing positions contrary to Romneys stance, and yelling at an empty chair that an imaginary President Barack Obama was sitting in....”
politico...doing the job Americans won’t do.
Harkin lied about being a Vietnam veteran and should be in jail for stolen valor.
What a scumbag.
Dang, Tom..that was so last Thursday.
Time to move on.
Ok so an old white guy is complaining about an old white guy?
Well, that’s weird.
Is that Uncle Joe telling everyone that he would tell everyone why we are better off today than 4 years ago..but it’s just too hot?
Puzzling? I guess those guys at Politico don't have access to the internet, nor are over 30 years old.
POLITICO, if you are reading this guys, here's a clue.
(Clint was even imitating Jimmy Stewart's voice and speech patterns)
The only Class Democrats have is NO Class.
No, he's telling the audience about the time aliens abducted him.
I completely agree that was the intent.
Sadly, most younger folks folks don’t remember Jimmy Stewart. Much less Harvey. They don’t like B&W movies.
And to my dismay, my 18 year old neice walked in while Clint was speaking. She said she really like him, but who was he?
I’m still trying to recover.
Eastwood continues to live rent free in their heads.
And he can still kick your azz.....
Eastwood was pure genius.
