Fox News source: Yep, Clint Eastwood is tonight’s mystery speaker; Update: Confirmation?

posted at 1:21 pm on August 30, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Dan Riehl and Ace, you already sort of knew this but now you really sort of know it:

Officials confirmed Wednesday that a surprise guest was still on the schedule but declined further comment.

One Republican source told FoxNews.com that Eastwood is indeed the mystery speaker, following an online report that claimed the actor is planning to travel to Tampa for the convention.

If the Academy Award winner is the one, he could get a mixed reception with the Hollywood-leery crowd.

“He’s all right, despite being associated with Hollywood,” Bruce Thompson, a California delegate, said laconically. “He’s a good guy and was a good mayor.”

C’mon. Does anyone think Clint Eastwood, who’s been a libertarian-leaning Republican for decades on top of being an international symbol of American western badass-ery, isn’t going to be received rapturously? Romney will have an honest-to-goodness liberal Democrat speaking on his behalf tonight too and she’ll also be well received, just as Zell Miller and Artur Davis were. As long as you’re helping to beat the Democrat, all is forgiven. (Just ask John McCain.) If anything, Eastwood will be more appreciated because he comes from Hollywood, because he’s willing to stand up to the ideological orthodoxy of his industry on a huge stage. And he’s esteemed enough by his peers that he’ll get away with it.

Further circumstantial evidence that it’s Eastwood, posted yesterday on Twitter:

Oswalt’s an actor, comedian, and outspoken liberal. Can’t imagine why he’d have inside info on a mystery speaker at the GOP convention unless it’s someone from his own field and he’s hearing it through the Hollywood grapevine. And the only reason that he’d be disappointed is if that guy was sufficiently respected in entertainment that a liberal would be sad to see him on the other team. All of that points right to Clint.

One other possibility, though: What if Eastwood’s going to speak as a last-minute addition, but he’s not actually the “mystery speaker”? Last night after Palin announced on Facebook that her Wednesday evening segments had all been canceled by Fox News, Ed e-mailed me wondering if they might have done that because they found out she’s the mystery speaker. After all, they wouldn’t want her commenting on air on an event that she’s soon to participate in. Fox’s excuse last night for pulling her was that they had to scramble to compress their schedule once the convention shrank from four days to three, but that makes no sense. If you’re going to bump people off the air, you’re not going to bump someone with Palin’s star power instead of a lesser-known Fox News analyst. And if you’re intent on bumping Palin, why on earth would you bump her last night instead of Tuesday? McCain spoke last night, as did her successor as VP nominee. If there’s any night you’d want her on air to react, last night was it. Either it’s bad programming by Fox or there’s more going on here.

Update: Romney pal Paul Gilbert says yes, it’s Eastwood. 100 percent sure.

He’s a squish-RINO-windsock and an embarassment.

Scrappy on August 30, 2012 at 1:30 PM

IF it were to be a Hollywood celebrity whose appearance would really sting for the left, and it wasn’t Eastwood, it might be DAVID MAMET.

Mamet was the darling of the left. A veritable icon. They had hailed him as a genius for years. When he had his awakening and realized that he was actually a conservative, and said so in no uncertain terms, it floored the left, and they haven’t gotten over it to this day.

I’d laugh out loud if Mamet walked out on that stage at the RNC.

If Palin were the mystery speaker, she wouldn’t have publicly complained that Fox axed her interviews. She’s not a dummy, she’d know why they were cut.

Palin needs to speak in 7pm pst prime time slot, or it won’t help much. Of course, if the de facto leader of the Tea Party doesn’t speak at all, if she’s dissed that bad, that would be bad for short and long term party unity, real bad.

Also Newsflash:

Chris Mathews on hearing Clint Eastwood will speak at GOP convention. “Everyone knows Eastwood’s a racist. I’ve even been told it’s not a big secret in Hollywood. His Dirty Harry character even used the “n” word. He likes playing racists in his movies. You could even say his movies promote racism. Nothing new here.”

Allahpundit on August 30, 2012 at 1:28 PM

How so? Because they claim she’s not on their network because of the compressed schedule. That “they’ cancelled her appearances, not that she cancelled them. She also says they are the ones that cancelled her appearances, not her.

If she or Fox had stated “she” cancelled her appearances due to a conflict, then it would be understandable. But right now both she and the network state Fox cancelled her appearances. Which would mean they were working with the RNC to have her scheduled there.

ButterflyDragon on August 30, 2012 at 1:32 PM

I still say it might be the political turncoat Colin Powell.

Of course she’d know why, but she might have objected. Huckabee got to do his show last week even though he was scheduled to speak at the convention. Why can’t Palin comment and then speak too? She’s been endorsing Romney openly on the air lately; it’s not like she’s supposed to be neutral on the election in her commentary.

bluefox on August 30, 2012 at 1:35 PM

It would definitely be a huge disappointment. To rely on an aging, raspy-voiced actor to ramp up the GOP energy decries the seriousness of the event. If they wanted Hollywood celebs to cheer for the GOP, Tuesday night would have been the appropriate time. Tonight belongs to the presidential nominee and I hope it isn’t cheapened by the appearance of an entertainment celebrity.

I was hoping for Limbaugh (who had insisted for weeks that he wasn’t going to be anywhere near Tampa) or Palin (although I presumed the GOP hierarchy would have kept her waaaaay far from Florida.) No one else can bring the excitement of those two rousing speakers.

Qzsusy on August 30, 2012 at 1:35 PM

Clint would be a fantastic choice if he’s in fact the surprise speaker. People respect the dude, especially seniors. I just hope he doesn’t mind never being nominated for another Oscar after doing this. Same with Gerald Molen BTW who co-produced 2016: Obama’s America.

BTW, Clint Eastwood used racial epithets when playing Dirty Harry. Therefore, Clint Eastwood is racist. That according to the logic of the MSDNC crew.

I don’t agree with the attitude about how Clint supported the auto bailout and therefore we shouldn’t want him at the RNC. Remember the parable of the Prodigal Son? Better to bring ex-Republicans back to the party than to exclude them when they want to return.

Similarly for Colin Powell, if he admits that he really misjudged Obama.
