There has been no end of amusement in reading the reactions to Eastwood's performance. As might be guessed, you have a lot of Hollywood types trying to get attention with responses that are either indignant (Mia Farrow) or clever (the majority). I suppose it was inevitable that, in covering this affair, BBC News should cite someone from their side of the pond; but they made a good choice. Simon Pegg may well have come up with the most memorable reaction to the whole affair:
Maybe Clint is a sleeper agent for the Democrats sent in under deep cover to make the Republicans look stupid. No wait, that's Romney.It is also worth noting that Pegg's quote, along with all the others, appeared in a story that ran in the Entertainment & Arts department, which is probably where all the other Convention coverage should have been run.
