The Greatest Clint Eastwood Tweets

The actor went off script at the Republican National Convention today, yelled at an empty chair, lit up the crowd, and may have alarmed his TV audience. Twitter caught fire.

Only possible Democratic response to Eastwood's performance is to have William Shatner sing "Rocket Man" as their keynote. #RNC

That was so awesome. Biden has to go shirtless for DNC to top it.

If Clint ends this bit with "The Aristocrats!", I swear I'll vote for Romney.

Romney campaign says Eastwood was "ad libbing."

Respect to Clint. 82 years old and putting Twitter over capacity.
