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.”

    Oh Matt Matt Matt. I loved you BEFORE you opened your mouth.

    Ugh, I hate celebrities and their politics.

    Yet, I’m sure he thinks Obama, with all of his 143 days in the Senate is so very qualified to be President of the United States. I think we’re pretty scr***d either way, but people in the entertainment industry should keep their political views to themselves.

    i supported Hillary Clinton and I was thinking of voting Obama-Biden but all these sexist remarks from their supporters has turned me OFF completely and I’m voting McCain-Palin now. The shift was caused by all the sexist remarks towards a woman candidate and now a lot of women are being turned off.

    If Obama had really been for “change” he would have chosen Hillary as a running mate not Joe Biden. When it came to making his first important decision he caved and chose a Washington insider. The pick of Palin has blown him out of the water. His “”change” is nothing but rhetoric. And he is a hypocrit to call Plain inexperienced.

    stfu Matt!! Says:

    These celebrities need to shut up about politics already and let people make up their own minds. I honestly don’t care about the race, gender, age….whatever about any of the candidates, I’m listening to the issues before I make up my mind. It is unfortunate that all this racist, ageist, sexist crap is even in the media in the 1st place, because I think it is overshadowing the real focus, which is on what will improve the state of the country.

    Republicans are so annoying. When diddy said the same thing they whipped out their racist remarks and said ‘what does a black man know?’ now than an educated actor(who spends most of his free time learning about politics and working with the UN and charities

    throughout the world) says the exact same thing, since you cant play the race card you say ‘what does an actor know?’

    Do you all not realise that this is exactly what millions and millions of people think? Sarah Palin wont even give a freakin interview! How is anyone supposed to make an informed decision when she wont even talk.

    I completley agree with everything he has said, not because he’s an actor but because it is one hundred percent the truth.

    Every time Damon or Afflect (Damflect) open there mouthes I want to yell “SHUT THE F*** UP!!!! These two hollywood ass kissers parade around like they know what is best for America, why they go over to third world countries and have their pictures taken with poor kids so they can tell us how giving they are. Hey Matt! Palin has far more experience then Obama! What an idiot. I hope his three daughters don’t use Matt as a role model.

    Dianne Says:

    Why would we care what Matt Damon thinks about politics? I didn’t pay much attention to him before, but I surely won’t now. These guys place far too much value on themselves and their opinions.

    Make up your minds for yourselves, people – don’t listen to Hollywood!!!!

    fidel Says:

    Sarah Palin is nothing more than a tiny part of a bigger machine.

    She’s against abortions = had a child with down syndrome.
    Against sex before marriage = her own CHILD is now pregnant.
    And Alaska? Do I even have to go there?
    She’s a crazy christian just like Bush.

    Im glad I live in europe.

    Camera Says:

    Matt Damon is just saying what millions have been thinking.

    A vote for McCain is not really a vote for him to be president, its a vote for Palin.

    And that really is a scary thought

    HES FOLLOWING POLITICS …
    ——-
    He obviously is not, and isn’t planning to! He said so himself – that he doesn’t know anything about her and he thinks he isn’t going to know anything about her in eight weeks. Then why is he judging her? Because she is a woman.
    Doesn’t he know, and don’t you know, that women are as good as, and often better than, men?

    Check your spelling before you press ‘submit!”

    Who cares if he is an actor. That has nothing to do with it. He is a smart man and he has every single right to make his opinion public. Your all making it sound like he just made some idiot comment. Did you fools even WATCH the video? He is incredibly educated and elequent in how he speaks. He know’s what he’s talking about. He’s not just another idiot actor trying to get some press. He makes some very valid points, and if all the Republicans can to to rebutle is spout hate for him, that says a hell of alot more you all then it does about Matt Damon, Obama or any actor with an opinion

    Angela Says:

    F@$&ing a@@hole! I would prefer to take my chances with Palin facing down Putin than do-nonthing pretty boy Obama. Go back to your meaningless Hollywood Damon along with all the other worthless traitor scum that make up your lot.

    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.

    AMEN!
    ——-
    What? He said that? It’s in writing? I can hardly believe it. Why hasn’t anyone asked him to expand on that statement?

    HE’S AN AMERICAN AND CAN SAY WHATEVER THE HELLLL HE WANTS! WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? WERE SOME OF YOU RAISED IN COUNTIRES WHERE OTHER PEOPLE THOUGHT FOR YOU AND SPOKE FOR YOU????????????? SINCE WHEN MUST YOU AGREE WITH EVERYTHING SOMEONE SAYS? SINCE WHEN IF YOU DISAGREE WITH SOMEONE, THEY ARE CONSIDERED BAD? THE PROBLEM WITH AMERICANS IS THAT YOU ARE LACKING IN EDUCATION. INSTEAD OF HUFFING AND PUFFING AND SWEATNG LIKE PIGS WHILE WADLING DOWN THE STREET LOOKING FOR A JUNK FOOD STORE TO STUFF YOUR FACE, HUFF AND PUFF YOUR WAY DOWN YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY OR LOCAL ACCREDITED UNVERSITY AND STUFF YOUR FACE WITH EDUCATION INSTEAD.
