You sure you want to talk so enthusiastically about such a controversial figure like Herman Cain TWO DAYS before your big new movie comes out, Clint?
Despite the possibility of stirring up controversy less than a week before J. Edgar gets released, director Clint Eastwood opened up about Herman Cain's story during a recent interview, and had positive things to say about it:
"I love Cain’s story. He’s a guy who came from nowhere and did well, obviously against heavy odds. He’s a doer and a straight-talker, which I don’t see enough of from either party."
We gotta say, we're not 100% sure, or even 37% sure that Cain is a straight-talker.
Until we get definitive proof that he's innocent or guilty of the numerous sexual harassment allegations that have surfaced, we would NOT speak about him in such an overwhelmingly positive light, Clint.
P.S. Maybe Clint can make a movie about Herman's life story. Citizen Cain, anyone? Anyone??? Ha!
