Dirty Harry on gay marriage

Actor/director Clint Eastwood, one of Hollywood's few Republicans, let loose in a recent interview with GQ magazine. On the subject of gay marriage:
These people who are making a big deal about gay marriage?" Eastwood tells the magazine. "I don't give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We're making a big deal out of things we shouldn't be making a deal out of ... Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want.
Clint considers himself more of a libertarian than a true Republican:
I was an Eisenhower Republican when I started out at 21, because he promised to get us out of the Korean War," Eastwood tells the magazine. "And over the years, I realized there was a Republican philosophy that I liked. And then they lost it. And libertarians had more of it. Because what I really believe is, let's spend a little more time leaving everybody alone.

well he couldn't do any worse, and probably would do a lot better than the raging narcissist in the White House now.

Why not? Ronald Reagan was one of the most successful presidents the U.S. has had! Sounds like C.E. is as, if not more, enlightened!
