Matt Damon: Sarah Palin is "Totally Absurd"

Matt Damon: Sarah Palin is

Matt Damon just spoke out on Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin to The Associated Press. The 37-year-old actor compares her possibility of being President to a ‘really bad Disney movie’. Ouch!

Damon shared, “I think there’s a really good chance Sarah Palin could become president, and I think that’s a really scary thing… I don’t know anything about her and in eight weeks, I don’t think I’m going to know anything about her. I know that she was a mayor of a really, really small town and she’s the governor for Alaska for less than two years. I just don’t understand. I think the pick was made for political purposes… Do the actuary tables and there’s a one out of three chance, if not more, that [John] McCain doesn’t survive his first term and it’ll be President Palin… It’s like a really bad Disney movie. The hockey mom, you know, ‘oh, I’m just a hockey mom’… and she’s facing down Vladimir Putin (of Russia)… It’s totally absurd… it’s a really terrifying possibility.”

    Why not have Sarah Palin for President.. Since every speech has her
    been compared to Obama..Even her first speech she was comparing
    herself to Obama… Why not switch and have Sarah Palin be President
    and McCain be Vice President..!!!

  • releka

    Amen Matt!!!!!!!

  • TiaBia

    Matt Damon just said everything that I have been thinking!!!

  • kit

    Stick to making movies, you dips**t. I will never again see anything this loser is in. What does he know about politics? I presume he thinks Obama, who is actually running for president, has enought political experience? Matt, go back to your hollywood mansion, and think this one over.

  • stefanie

    These actors really need to stay out of politics. It only turns people off. Look what happened to Kerry in 2004.

    Make movies Matt. Leave politics to the professionals.

  • u

    matt damon is just a bad actor. are u gonna listen to someone who thinks himself is really hot?

  • chriseler 1

    This Palin woman is scary not only because of her bragging on other world powers but mostly because of what she would do to women’s right to choose. We won this right after a difficult struggle and this woman could take it back with a stroke of her hand….Scary indeed.

    Why doesn’t she understand that just the way she has a right to choose having a special needs baby a poor, teenage girl has a right to choose the future of her body and life…

  • diana

    “Damon shared, “I think there’s a really good chance Sarah Palin could become president, and I think that’s a really scary thing… I don’t know anything about her…”

    So he doesn’t know anything about her, but he is scared. yeah, that makes sense. stupid

  • BETSY SMITH

    Where has Matt been … on vacation at home in Miami.. Everyone knows everything there is about Sarah Palin.. Why does she think
    that she is running for President.. She should be comparing herself
    to Mr. Biden

  • LENI

    Matt Damon needs to shut his ahole and concerntrating on making mad movie. I used like him but not anymore.

  • lauren

    I totally agree!!!! Didn’t this country learn over the last 8 years what happens when you elect someone who’s “folksy”, “just a regular American”, “someone you want to have a beer with”, etc etc. I want a President who’s busted ass all their life to improve the world, and who’s got a great education, and who’s obviously extremely thoughtful and smart and even-tempered. Not some TV sports anchor who’s been in public service for like a second and a half. Argh stupid ass country.

    And for those who think actors shouldn’t talk about politics, why the hell not? The rest of us spout off our opinions (at least those of us who pay attention and care about the state of the country/world). Why shouldn’t they?

  • kit

    Lauren, based on your comment, except for the education part, Obama is not the man for you. Awwwww.

  • Orchid

    I would agree with kit that Matt should stick to movies.
    He says he doesn’t know anything about her and in eight weeks he doesn’t think he’s going to know anything about her. ??? Is he stupid or what? He can’t read? He doesn’t have access to the internet? He doesn’t have TV?
    No wonder he said, “President Putin!” That tells me about Matt. He is not up to date. Vladimir Putin is now prime minister of Russia.

    Make movies, Matt!

  • ricki

    I’m so sick of actors talking politics. Shut up Matt.

  • mmm

    I don’t care what your political position is, but shut the f**k up! What makes you so qualified that your opinion matters more than any other? Because you made a few movies? You played a genius in a movie, but you’re not, d**khead! I am so sick of these celebs spouting off on politics, whether it’s the lefty nuts or the righty nuts. I say quarantine Hollywood and burn the place down.

  • r.

    He’s absolutely right. She has not been in a position to deal with what she’ll face in the White House. Ever. Not to mention she’s an underhanded person who went out of her way to do things like get her former brother-in-law fired because she didn’t like him. You really want someone like that in office JUST BECAUSE she’s woman? Really? I’m a woman, and I don’t want that. It’s making me sick that other women are apparently going to vote for this person, even though she clearly is not experienced and clearly has had some questionable dealings, just because she’s a woman. That’s disgusting, that is not what you base a vote for the President of the US on.

  • erin

    Guess I will never see another Matt Damon movie again. I wish hollywood would close their mouths about politics – Noone cares who they are voting for. He sounds so stupid. Palin has more experience than obama and biden together. That is a fact. Look at all the good Barbara Striesand did for Al Gore and John Kerry. The more these hollywood crazies open their mouths – the better it is for Republicans.

  • gh bfghfv

    Putin is no longer the president of Russia. LMAO.

    But i do agree with him.

  • kit

    Orchid,
    He doesn’t want to know anything about her. The fact that she’s a Republican is all he knows and needs to know. He’s proud to be uninformed. He’s proud to be DUMB. Can you imagine being married to a conehead like that?

  • noelle

    Matt should stick to movies and shut his mouth when it comes to politics. I HATE celebrities talking about politics it makes me dislike them and not want to support them anymore.

  • kit

    BTW, Anyone with integrity will BOYCOTT MATT DAMON!

  • One chance

    I agreed w/ Matt. I understand where his coming from and I feel exactly the same about her.
    PLEASE VOTE PEOPLE! VOTE FOR CHANGE, VOTE VOTE VOTE

    lmbao.. kit, stick to… ummm… blogging! hahaha

    ..what do you know about politics..?

    lmbaoo can you even vote?

    you’re probably a canadian. haha

  • mia

    ITA, Matt! We know next to nothing about her, but people are willing to put her a heart attack away from the White House. That’s very scary, especially as she seems to know absolutely nothing outside of her life in Alaska. Very scary, indeed.

  • gh bfghfv

    Actually i just saw the video and he said “Vladimir Putin”, NOT “President Putin”, you wrote it wrong Jared.

    Sorry Matt.

  • Jenn

    The funniest part of Damon’s comment is that he doesn’t even know that Putin is no longer President of Russia, but is now Prime Minister.

  • erin

    Yes people vote for change you really can believe in – vote for McCain and Palin.

  • Page

    ok seriously Matt Damon, go back to f*cking Kimmel or
    Sarah Silverman!

  • Dani

    What is the most frightening thing about Palin is that the Republican party is not allowing her to be treated as any other presidential or vice presidential candidate. News appearances are protected and guided. If someone asks her a question the party doesn’t like, then the network is punished by being excluded from things.
    If Palin is so capable and so able then she should be asked the tough questions that Obama, Biden and McCain are getting. If she is indeed the pit bull in lipstick, then she should be able to answer the questions. Unfortunately she has already incorrectly answered questions due to her inexperience and ignorance. She is one heartbeat away from the presidency and I’ve been a republican most of my life and find this to be terrifying.

  • ck

    If you ask him one thing that Obama did as Senator, he’d stutter and wet his pants. When are these actors going to realize that they are mostly high school educated pretty people who know as much about geopolitics as I do about microbiology? They just never learn.

  • carol

    putin is not the president anymore Jared… Matt said it right
    i belive that the amercians can do anything right now… they are still very racist
    USA will never be a good country..
    you know, even money can’t solve everything!

  • bejeebus

    well, i guess we can see just how highly matt damon rates women on the competance scale. how fitting then that he married a no-name bartender. seems like he doesn’t like a woman to be challenging and/or successful. maybe he thinks women are good for just bringing men food, drinks, keeping their mouths shut and bearing children. for someone who admits not to know very much about a particular candidate he sure seems to have a lot of strong opinions about her. i actually liked him before he opened his huge stupid sexist piehole. well…not any more.

  • chessa

    This only gives more votes for McCain and Palin. Hollywood does not represent all of America.

  • Paige

    I think that people who play dress up and pretend for a living.. like Matt Damon, should keep their political opinions to themselves. There are idiots out there who will do what he says and follow his influence just because he’s a clown.. I mean celebrity.

    So sick of all the Palin and McCain bashing and bandwagon Obama voters. All they do is take shots at McCain, instead of telling us just why it is they’re voting for Obama.

  • You/Me

    Oh yes, this from a man who is completely out of touch with domestic economic America. Well, maybe if we all get passports we can go out into the “real” world and see how other countries live. Yep, thousand dollar night hotels, million dollar homes….STFU MATT DAMON! That goes to all the celebrities who are endorsing ….whether it’s McCain or Obama….who the f*ck cares who the stars are voting for?? It just makes Obama seems more materialistic and fake to have these hypocrites endorsing him!

  • Stefanie

    Amen…We don’t know enough about her because her handlers are keeping her from interviews. Can’t wait to see Charlie Gibson’s upcoming interview where he said he is not going to ask her about the controversies surrounding her.

  • jupi

    Boycott OPRAH !!!!!!! and Damon !

  • jessica

    what the fuck!!!! this looser is just doing this for his own publicity. why does he want to know if sarah palin knows abaout dinasours? maybe he knows he sleeps with one every day. Idiot, doing fundraiser for the Democrats. matt, should go back to school and learn the presidents are not elected they are selected and all this is just a circus for people like him without any knwoledge and education on world History. do yourself a favor go back to your dinasour wife and if you are getting tired of her go back to Crobar Miami Beach and get another disgusting dino…..none of your votes count!!!!

    You know what Kid Rock said about expressing his opinions on “political issues”- he said- I am NOT and was never a political science major, therefore I do not have the necessary qualifications to speak out about political issues in a public forum- I am not that informed- I am a musician, I will stick to that!

    Truer words have never been spoken! MD should have taken some of K. Rock’s “advice” before spouting off his political nonsense!

  • lurking

    Matt Damn On. Not very smart and not very American. No wonder he married a not so hot bambina and someone’s sloppy seconds.

    No matter what you think, I am voting an AMERICAN Woman.

  • fox

    Jared, it is quite obvious by now that you are giving free publicity for these crooks Republicans. I don’t remember this site being political, but rather entertaining with stories about Hollywood celebrities. You are promoting this nobody whore from Alaska and her walking zombie running mate McLame–biggest crooks and hypocrites in this country. From today on I will no longer visit this website, and I will ask all my friends to stop coming again.

  • rd

    “Excuse me Prime Minister, can you repeat that? A missle? Going where? Oh hold on, I need to switch breasts…Honey- can you see what’s wrong with the other baby? Yeah, that’s right, I am pregnant again with # 7. Ha Ha! You know, my husband! He and like to have lots of babies!!!!”

  • Gloria

    What an idiot, makes me want to burn my Bourne Ultimatum DVD, just kidding, but really come on Matt, Obama is seriously lacking and he’s at the top of the ticket, what does a junior lawyer know after 143 days in office before declaring himself a presidential candidate?

  • Model
