Clint Eastwood’s Daughter: Not Voting for Mitt

Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca told TMZ that she won’t be voting for Mitt Romney, despite her father’s endorsement of the GOP candidate. When asked about her voting plans, Francesca

I happen to not be voting for the same man. But I love that he [my dad] stands up for what he believes in.

This will be Francesca’s first time voting; she is 18.

Francesca, her siblings and stepmother Dina Eastwood (not to be confused with Dina Lohan, troubled former child actress Lindsay Lohan’s equally troubled mother) are all part of a reality show Mrs. Eastwood & Company that follows Mrs. Eastwood as she tries to manage a boy-band and handle being the (very well-funded) mother of (very well-funded) teenagers.  Poor Clint, no wonder he talks to empty chairs, his family sounds bonkers. But at least Francesca has her own opinion.

Disagreeing with one’s parents on politics is a normal part of being an adult whether in real life or on TV (remember Meathead, Rob Reiner’s character on All in the Family?). And gods know, I nearly ruined a family meal when my mother said that Marcos had been good for the Philippines!  In what universe?!   If the facepalm.jpg had existed back then, I would have thought it.

Back to Francesca–it remains to be seen if politics will play a part in Mrs. Eastwood & Company. Clint seems a bit nonplussed about his missus’ project, as evidenced by his appearance last month on Ellen. He also seemed a bit disenchanted with the GOP as well. And his distaste for Francesca’s boyfriend is very clear!

This must be the time of year when celebrities, and near-celebrities, decide that since Americans are sort-of paying attention to the election, they need to get in on the paying-attention act too. I mean: yesterday it was Honey Boo Boo and Cardinal NYC-in-a-dress. I wonder who’ll it be tomorrow — Kevin Bacon for reproductive rights? Oh, wait.

I think Clint is probably a Republican in Name Only, and otherwise is just a geriatric cinema artist. He really has hitched his wagon (I was tryibg to avoid a Western metaphor, truly) to the wrong group.

Does anyone actually vote for a given candidate because some Hollywood celeb endorses them? Any if so, why?

A man must know his limitations.

Who gives a rat’s ass who an eighteen year old who has done nothing in particular is voting for?
