Clint EastwoodSome surprising news from a surprising source today on the marriage equality fight at the US Supreme Court. Breitbart.com broke the news today that tea-party favorite Clint Eastwood has signed an amicus brief by a group of prominent republicans supporting the repeal of Prop 8. NBC News reports:

Clint Eastwood has joined more than 100 Republicans in arguing that gays and lesbians should be allowed to legally wed, the advocacy group waging the legal battle against California’s ban on same-sex marriage said Thursday. Manny Rivera, a spokesman for the American Foundation for Equal Rights, confirmed to NBC News that Eastwood had signed the brief to be filed with the Supreme Court in the Proposition 8 case. Calls and an email placed to representatives for the Oscar-winning actor and director were not immediately returned.

Did his chair endorse it too?
