In an almost actors studio scene at the Republican National Convention, fictional Dirty Harry aka Inspector Callahan spoke to an empty chair containing President Obama. Most liberals were unaware Clint was brilliantly channeling Dirty Harry. As Wikipedia explained: “when Dirty Harry first appeared many critics expressed concern with what they saw as bigotry. Pauline Kael of The New Yorker accused Eastwood of a “single-minded attack against liberal values”. Eastwood dismissed the political outrage, claiming Callahan was just obeying a higher moral authority, and said: “some people are so politically oriented, when they see cornflakes in a bowl, they get some complex interpretation out of it”. He recently said: “President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people”.
