If you like jazz, you loved Clint Eastwood's speech


The most talked about speech of the GOP Convention was, by a long shot, the speech given by Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood.

He had us all gripping our seats as he improvised his way through his Bob Newhart-like talk with the "invisible Obama."

If you missed it, you can catch it at the end of this blog.

If you'd like to see the best take on it, go here and see what William F. Gavin (former assistant to former Sen. James L. Buckley) had to say.

For example: "He forgot his lines, lost his way, and, like the life-time jazz lover he is, improvised and did a non-musical version of scat singing."

It was "magnificent", "bizarre" and "mesmerizing".
