Clint Eastwood's peculiar speech at the Republican convention has left prominent liberals and conservatives smiling, albeit for very different reasons. Writing for the Daily Beast, Michael Moore thanked the actor for making his night by casting the GOP as "delusional and detached from reality." He added that Eastwood's speech showed Republicans want to "live in the land of legitimate rape and ice caps that don't melt," otherwise known as "planet Koo-koo."
Not everyone shared Moore's sentiment, however. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said the speech was "terrific" and that Eastwood said "all the right things," reports Salon. Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who's still calling for Obama's "real" birth certificate, also applauded the speech. Over at CNN, film critic Carrie Rickey says it wasn't Eastwood's "finest hour," but doesn't understand those who say they won't watch his movies now. "The actor who is a lower-case-L libertarian on social issues (pro-gay marriage, pro choice, pro-ecology) and a fiscal conservative is hardly one to toe a party line," she writes.
