No more surprised than Michael Moore being a liberal... oh wait:
film maker: check
composer: unsure but I say check
white guy: check
Any other generalities you want to sneak in there?
By your conclusions, pretty much the ENTIRE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY from my generation should be conservative! Where did your analysis go wrong?
I"m not an MM fan, but he's not that old, not an actor, not a composer and no one ever said that Clint was a fanatic.
There is a big difference between an MM and an Eastwood. Eastwood is worth an estimated $400 million, Moore is worth less than $50. Big difference in pay scales.
Either way though, that wasn't my point. Eastwood has been elected as a Republican in the past, and frequently self identifies as a Libertarian.
I don't have a problem with him at all, but he's been a registered member of the Republican party since the 1950's, so I'm not surprised he likes Romney.
That doesn't sway my opinion though.
(p.s. Maybe next time you can take a joke as just that, a joke.)
