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.”

Matt Damon is an ass. Palin will win thanks to these stupid persons. Obama is a pig.

Regarding Putin, formally Putin is not a president, but effectively he is. Anyone in Russia knows that President Medvedev follows Putin’s instructions.

Kelly @ 09/10/2008 at 1:59 pm 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.

========================

^^^^ Another uninformed loser…..

Obama chose the best person for the job. I respect him for thinking about the country first. He didn’t cave in to popular opinion–which would have been a female. He had a group of “intelligent” people around him (including Caroline Kennedy) who helped him come to the conclusion that Mr. Biden was the best choice.

I like Obama because he’s smart and he’s driven. I know that to get where he got in life, he went through some hardships and he succeeded. He knows how it is to be on the outside looking in. He’s for educating all of this nation’s children, which is the best way to improve the future of the country. It starts not with oil and energy or even gasoline. It starts with helping INDIVIDUALS who in turn go on to better their lives and improve this nation. And the future lies in children.

Seriously, some of the people on this board are so stupid.

NO Celebrity,will ever tell me who to vote for.How many of them actually are going to stand in a line to vote,please.Their hoping you will vote for who they say so they wont have too.What do we now about Joe Biden Matt??? He certainly puts down Sarah enough but offers no reason to vote for his guy!!!

Bubbaness @ 09/10/2008 at 2:41 pm

Agreed. She is in no way, shape or form ready to run this country if McCain shuffles himself loose the mortal coil. She is anti-gay marriage, ridiculously pro-choice, has a horrible environmental record, has a scandalous family….

Any woman who is voting for McCain just to see a set of tits in the White House is ridiculous.

And yes, I AM a woman.

PEOPLE PLEASE!
Sarah Palin will be a nightmare!
We are in so much trouble.
Please. Think.
Obama is educated and truly enlightened.
Give him a chance to do the right thing.
He will not let us down.
McCain is not a smart man. True, an American hero, no one is denying that but President? NO. NO. NO.

I completely agree with Matt! As far as actors stating their opinions, they have the right to say what they feel like everyone else, and then vote! Just because Sarah Palin is a woman doesn’t mean she’s the right woman to be in the white house, taking us back to the dark ages. This is a woman who does not believe in sex education in the schools, and now has the pregnant daughter to show us where that kind of thinking gets us! This was a political ploy to show the “right conservatives” and “women” that McCain is their man. He isn’t my man, and Palin certainly will never be my pick for women.

It is called : Freedom Of Speech

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. You can not judge Matt as a bad person because he disagrees with your presidential choice.
would you abandon your brother or sister if they picked Obama ?

common sense people !!

thats exactly what McCean wanted, some voters who are blinded by anger clouding their judgment.

No, he didn’t and the poster is one more reason why America should be very afraid. You find it for yourself Orchid and it’s quite easy to do.
Don’t leave here giving validation to that persons choosing to not only remain misenformed, but misenforming you also. Do your homework and educate yourself. Don’t let me or anyone choose what you should believe. Don’t allow soundbites, misquotes, edited 2nd hand information to form your thoughts. You’re smarter than that I hope.
——-
Well, the only way to find out if he said that is to read that book, and since I don’t plan to read it, has anyone here read that book?

your all ignorant idiots. before he is a ‘celebrity’ he is an american citizen! he has as much right to voice his opinion as all of you!!! geez.

I assume from reading all the comments that you are pretty well off, well as a person in America who is not I am really hoping America Steps up to the plate in November and votes for change!!!if you vote Obama then Matt Damon and his fellow actors/ actresses are going to help get this ecomony on its feet by paying 20 -25% in taxes…, this is not a popularity contest its about millions and millions of people that need Obama/ Biden to help give us back 8 years lost!

LOL idk what you are all talking about but AMEN TO MATT !!!!!!!

Hey if you who are just a regular us citizen (not an actor) have a right to your opinion on politicals matters so does Matt Damon. All of you who say they have no right to an opinion are ridiculous. If he doesnt then neither do you. If you dont agree with him thats fine but he can say whatever he wants. Cripes.

just asking i don’t care whoever wins , may a republican or democrat. but i am curious. since everybody is talking about experience. i would rather talk about achievement or accomplishment i want to ask anyone to fill me in here. can you guys tell me about obama’s accomplishment in chicago?…..before he went to the senate. i can’t ask about wht he did in the senate because as you guys said he’s only been there for 143 days. but it makes me wonder , how can he be a qualified as president when u don’t hv any accomplishment or enough experience as a senator?. …seems like it’s too soon to dream big?……well, i hope he knows wht he is doing. i listened to him he’s a great speaker but i don’t know speech can be creatively written but running the country is one thing, same thing with palin but she is not running for president. though , i listened to her , she seems hv an inhand knowledge about some things. though, i want to know much obama and his detailed plan of change. i also wonder why he wants to pull-out the troop right away, when he will be president, hmmmm….i don’t know tht is a scary thing. i hope he weighs things first and listen to both sides or else it will be a big disaster. i think he shld be careful and not too drastic.i also question sarah palin, she has some young kids and the other one has a down syndrome , so how she gonna able to do it all. oh well, she is not running for president but it seem to me like some hail her as she is bidding for presidency. yes, it would be nice to see a woman in america can be a president. like some other countries but it never happened in the history of usa. i ddn’t hear a woman senator either. i will also be happy to hv a diversity of race in the whitehouse. i don’t hv a problem if wht color the president is. i am not sure about obama though. i listened to some audio of obama keep mentioning about white man and slavery. he is talking about his father and him blaming white people about the black misfortune. i am not white nor i am black. i know this is a sensitive question to others but i want to know, how did the black people slave here in america. i heard somebody said, the other black people sold their own people or fellow to white people to become their slave, isthis true?….. sorry , i know its off topic, but i am curious.

Matt please be quiet!! Go back to your bubble and take your lame opinions to yourself. I am so sick of celebrities and their liberal ramblings.

Are you suggesting that only teenagers of parents who don’t believe in sex education get pregnant?
Haven’t your read the post of a mother right here in JJ who said that after educating both her sons about sex, the 19-year old recently told his parents that his girlfriend is pregnant?

Thank you Matt, “President Palin”, that is a scary thought!!!

are you serious Matt!
She has more experince than the 173 days
Obama served in in the senate.
did you really want go go there?
If she was a man you would not be saying this would you Matt who has his housewife kept at home
actors are not experts on politics

bournestupid @ 09/10/2008 at 3:03 pm

Way to promote your “ONE” campaign there, you dumba$$!!!!!!

Funniest thing………..Palin scares him, but Obama doesn’t???? What an idiot!

Twifanatic Amanda @ 09/10/2008 at 3:04 pm

This is awesome. I agree with everything he said and hopefully it’ll have some impact because HE said it!

Love ya, Matt, but you are not helping matters here. It’s just going to make people support her more because people are picking on her.

F@*#ing a@@hole… I’m tired of actors, musicians, etc. mixing their “art” with politics. FYI, dipsh*t Damon, I’ll take Palin and her moose hunting skills over Obama a/k/a Community Organizer ANY DAY to handle Putin! Keep your opinions to yourself, Damon, and go back to Hollywood to join all the other worthless traitor scum!

In order to say Palin is absurd you obviously know deep in your heart that someone like Obama running for President is equally if not more absurd. And to not be able to see that just means the person syaing it is in denial or unintelligent. The whole election is an ABSURD disaster waiting to happen.
