Do you feel lucky…well do ya punk?

Supporters seeking to overturn Proposition 8 in California are certainly feeling lucky now.

Clint Eastwood has pledged his support for marriage equality. A gun toting, right wing Republican…supporting marriage equality…times have changed.

He’s one of the few big-time celebrities who is also a big-time Republican.

But Clint Eastwood has veered from the viewpoint of many Conservatives in one regard: the actor signed the American Foundation for Equal Rights’s “Friend of the Court” brief this week. 

In doing so, the actor became one of over 100 prominent Republicans to support this gay rights organization’s document, which it has filed with the Supreme Court.

In April, the highest court in the land will listen to arguments about the legality of California’s Proposition 8, an amendment that passed in 2008 and which declares “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized” in that state.

Those such as Eastwood have affixed their name to this brief in the hope that this gay marriage ban will be overturned.

    Seriously? He’s an actor and a director not a tough guy or a mans man. He’s spent his entire working life surrounded by Nigels and Rubens (No offence inteneded to anyone named Nigel or Ruben). Of course he’s going to support it. His entire industry is disproportionately represented by gays. The only reason he’s a republican is he doesn’t want the money he has earned of the back of his adoring public to go to any of his adoring public.
    If it was Sheriff Joe…well then I’d be impressed!
