Clint Eastwood, GOP convention: The Romney campaign sells out its surprise speaker. - Slate Magazine
Not quite sure how its throwing someone under the bus to say, "We were expecting something more traditional. He doesn't like teleprompters, but we thought 'hey, its Clint Eastwood, we'll be fine." As far as I know they aren't saying they were offended by what he said, or disagree...just that it was a little strange and unexpected....which is what most people are saying.
Throwing someone under the bus is when you come out and say that the person is your guy, like family, like your white grandmother, for example, and that you've got their back no matter what. And then a few weeks later coming out and saying that you are disowning that person because you had NO IDEA that the ideas they espoused all the time were really the ideas they believed...because it was politically advantageous to do so...

But this story is collaborated!
Adviser: Romney thought Clint Eastwood was 'funny'
All this worry from the left about Eastwood
What else is he going to say publically?
This was an unmitigated disaster.
Friday morning, no one was talking about Romney's speech. Everyone was talking about how Clint Eastwood was talking to a chair.
In a week, that's what anyone is going to remember about this convention at all.
