Clint Eastwood speaks his mind (and doesn't give a damn if you or Neil Cavuto or Michael "Mad Dog" Medved agree)

A few years back, Clint Eastwood told me: “You know the greatest thing about getting old? You can do anything you want. Really. I was talking about this with a friend one time, and he agreed. He told me: ‘You get to be 65 or 70 — you can do what you want, and you don’t have to take any more crap. Because what can they do to you if you fail?” When I reminded him of those comments in a subsequent interview, he chuckled heartily, then added: “And you know what?He’s right. I mean, what can they do if I fail? Take back the Oscar?”

Obviously, this self-assured, straight-talking, take-no-crap attitude informs his approach to political discussions as well.
