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.”

Come on Matt Damon! Governor Palin is more qualified to be president than Obama. She’s got executive experience.

Obama’s only accomplishment is writing two memoirs. He has not done anything in the Senate. He is so INDECISIVE. He voted “present” 130 times.

No Matt, Obama being President IS a really bad disney movie. Obama will be the most unexperienced President ever. Now that’s scary. Thank you.

McCain_Palin'08 @ 09/10/2008 at 1:39 pm

Vote for me vote for me vote for me!!!!
People, there is NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING wrong with COMMUNISM! I promise you. Just vote for me and you will see!!!!!!!!
PALIN/PUTIN ring the bell? Oh yeah for those of you who don’t know me I am a Russian and proud of it. But don’t be scared Communism is a good thing, I promise it will be better than whatever you have now! Bush started it but he is too stupid and scared to turn America into a fully communistic country. McCain and I are not!! You have seen both him and I with guns, haven’t you? Well if that doesn’t tell you how militant and violent we are then you need to pay more attention. We can’t wait to take full control of this country and turn it into Russia!!! Once we get your votes we can’t wait to start invading the world, we love guns, we love blood, we are the real politicians. We don’t need whiners who complain about health care costs, taxes, unemployment, blah blah blah. We need YOU!! We need GUNS, We need to start attacking the world.We are the true leaders with guts, and we need your vote!

# 5 stefanie @ 09/10/2008 at 12:54 pm 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.


You sound beyond ignorant. He’s a citizen just like you and has every right to express his opinion just like you. And as far as leaving politics to the professional, you sound even more ignorant. Yeah, I called you ignorant because that’s exactly how you sound trying to shutdown someones right to speak as an American about what will affect them just as much as it will you or I. You are a prime example of the type of voter McCain/Palin Bush/Cheney love, and if it’s left up to you and other obtuse rah rah flag waving idiot voters swilling on wedge issues like a drunk, we’ll all be making out our mortgage checks out to the National Bank of China and our car payments to the National Bank of Venezuela.


Way to go Mattayyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!

Two thumbs up!

MCCAIN/PALIN ’08!!!!!!!!!!!!

TOTALLY AGREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Model #46:
If I’m a fool, what is Matt Damon who says he knows nothing about Palin, nor does he think he will every know anything about her, yet says she’s absurd? Never mind, that would make him MATT REALLY STUPID AND DUMB. At least he’s not a fool.

McCain_Palin'08 @ 09/10/2008 at 1:42 pm


i mean McCain…………….

20kit @ 09/10/2008 at 1:08 pm

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?
It’s just possible that he thinks Sarah Palin is like his wife!

Model = nalnya = i hate america
You need to go back into your basement
and take your medications.

A direct quote from Barack Hussien Obama’s Book, “Audacity of Hope, “I will stand with the MUSLIMS should the political winds shift in an ugly direction”, He did NOT say Americans.!!!!!!!!!, Think long and hard before you cast your vote. Once a Muslim always a muslim. Obama doesn’t have much experience to be our President either.

It does make me laugh to watch Obama stutter in his speeches when he talks about Palen, he thought he had this election in the bag because he truly believed that he has this county fooled by his big talk. He has no action and he keeps talking about change but I have yet to hear him say anything differently. He and Biden are shaking in their boots.

McCain_Palin'08 @ 09/10/2008 at 1:45 pm

Vote for me and I will show you how to raise your daughters properly! I guarantee my motherhood skills work!!!!!
All mothers vote Sarah Putin, the real woman of change!!!!!!!

well, i won’t be watching any matt movies anymore. his comment is absurd. and wasilla isn’t a really, really small town. sarah has done more for alaska than any other governor. give the woman a chance, she has what it takes to do good for our country.

I think he has a valid opinion, he’s not just some ditz actor talking out of his ass. This is a harvard educated man, hes got some smarts about him.

McCain_Palin'08 @ 09/10/2008 at 1:48 pm

Sarah Putin – John McCain ’08!!!!!!!!!!

Let the communism reign!!!!!!!!!

McCain_Palin'08 @ 09/10/2008 at 1:50 pm

Putin/ McCain ’08

Get ready for a draft baby, we are going to Iran and Syria!!!!!!!!!!

Obama kept stuttering in his latest trump speech. His campaign is in defense mode now. He can’t recite the prepared speeches with the swagger he did earlier on because he knows he sounds ridiculous, but he also knows he’s losing the election.

McCain-Palin08 @ 09/10/2008 at 1:53 pm

You liberal Democrats keep dissing Sarah and more votes will go to McCain_Palin BWAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA

Original jpf @ 09/10/2008 at 1:53 pm

Can anyone name one issue that McCain/Palin have nailed down that they have verbalized a plan for.

Name one:





Ya can’t because they haven’t. Not one of the above have they spoken of in concrete terms because all they seem to have time for while they formulate something is Obama! They’ve done nothing but played the attack the otherside game because we have nothing else! Name one thing that’s all I ask. They tell the people to wait, they tell the press to wait, and it’s a travesty. No VP in history has gone this long without the people knowing as little about their stand on issues, not one, and all we get is “leave her alone……..this is sexism……..she’s a mom…….she’s been a governor and mayor……….this is sexism….uh, no, this is bonifide, unadulterated all American bullsh!t and ya know it

Anyone who votes this ticket based on nothing but some surface belief they are gonna be kicka$$ Americans, you deserve the a$$kicking coming that’s going to leave us worse off than even Bush/Cheney.


Matt Damon, shut your mouth. This isn’t a Sprite commercial so stop the endorsements.

Celebrities need to hold their tongues when it comes to politics because they can easily — and undeservedly — influence the public.
