Romney advisers so trusted Mr. Eastwood, 82, that unlike with other speakers, they said they did not conduct rehearsals or insist on a script or communicate guidelines for the style or format of his remarks.

Romney Aides Scratch Their Heads Over Eastwood’s Speech – NYTimes.com

Political malpractice of the highest order. I had to wonder whether Eastwood had given them an approved text but then went rogue. Now we know that they knew he was just going to wing it. If Romney himself didn’t okay Eastwood doing an unvetted speech, then whoever did should be fired. Jaw-droppingly stupid.
