CARMEL, California - Ever since his appearance at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, back in August, Clint Eastwood has been keeping pretty much of a low profile.
The legendary star of TVs western series Rawhide, the Italian motion picture spaghetti westerns, and the Dirty Harry movie series says that his appearance at the GOP convention, in which he talked to an empty chair for 13 minutes, was definitely the lowlight of his career.
Shortly after his Tampa appearance Eastwood went on The View and was told by Whoopi Goldberg that it's a damn good thing he saved his Dirty Harry money.
Joy Behar added that it's a damn good thing that he's 82, and was able to get away with that theatrical rubbish that Paul "Little Bunny Foo Foo" Ryan dreamed up for him.
And now comes word out of LaLaLand that Eastwood has agreed to make an appearance on TLC's hit reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, starring seven-year-old Alana Thompson.
Eastwood was asked by Bedroom Pillow Talk's Carolina Chipotle why he would agree to appear on a show whose characters are all 100 percent non-Republican.
The former cowboy star paused for a moment and said in his slow country drawl "Well, that's exactly why ma'am. I want to go on the show to try and get all of those non-Republicans to come over to my side of the fence and become card-carrying members of the GOP."
SIDENOTE: Little Honey Boo Boo has repeatedly stated that all Democrats are like ice cream men and all Republicans are like bogeymen.
