Why is everyone, including the Romuluns, dissing Clint Eastwood this morning? First, because his segment was the only interesting moment during the entire Republican convention. And second, because he said this to the invisible Obama by his side:

I know you were against the war in Iraq, and that’s okay. But you thought the war in Afghanistan was OK. You know, I mean — you thought that was something worth doing. We didn’t check with the Russians to see how did it — they did there for 10 years.

This was the only non-warmongering foreign policy comment in Tampa, and, worse, one that mentioned the otherwise banned word, Afghanistan. It even garnered some cheers from that mostly bloodthirsty crowd. Oh, and he mentioned another dread word, Libertarian.

UPDATE from Travis Holte:

That speech was epic. Twice he made anti-war cracks, like telling Obama to just bring the troops home. Watching the strained faces in the crowd was a pleasure indeed. Chis Christie looked like a balloon waiting to burst. Wolf Blitzer was absolutely livid afterwards. I’ve never seen him so opinionated. Apparently, Clint had tossed his vetted speech. Good for you, Clint!
