Clint Eastwood: Post-9/11 Angry American

After all the sturm und drang over Clint Eastwood's "Halftime in America" Super Bowl ad, it might be a good idea to take a second look at his appearance on America: A Tribute to Heroes, a fund-raising TV special that aired on all four broadcast networks and several cable networks in the wake of 9/11. At the time, some of my liberal brethren complained about what they saw as Eastwood's unseemly saber-rattling. They were as wrong then as Karl Rove was today. And Eastwood was every bit the maverick then as he is now.
