Matt Damon on Sarah Palin: 'Like a Really Bad Disney Movie'
NewsBusters ^ | September 10, 2008 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 09/10/2008 9:36:43 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

The latest celebrity to join in the group slamming of Sarah Palin is none other than Matt Damon as you can see in this Associated Press video which reeks of condescension. Damon, who has yet to attain public office condescendingly mocks Palin's credentials (emphasis mine):

I think there is a really good chance that Sarah Palin could president. And I think that's a really scary thing because I don't know anything about her. I don't think in eight weeks I'm going to know anything about her. I know that she was a mayor of a really, really small town. And she's governor of Alaska for less than two years. I just don't understand... I think the pick was made for political purposes but in terms of governance it's a disaster.

Matt Damon is an expert on bad movies. Does he really have to reach all the way to Disney to find an example?

Well...I’d say he just ruined his chances of being asked to do any Disney movies anytime soon.

Soooooooo, you're scared of your own ignorance?

Priceless. Just priceless.

And we know what about Obama? He is a good campaigner. I suppose because Obama did nothing as a legislator, he should be promoted to the most important job in the land? At least Palin has some real accomplishments.

Nice - Hollywierd is complaining that she’s not qualified to be the president because they don’t know anything about her. Why does that fail to impress me?

America is getting to know Sarah Palin, and according to the polls, they love her.

It would appear that Mr. Damon is the Leader of a very very small mind. He doesn’t think that in eight weeks he won’t know anything about her? I listened to her acceptance speech in one night a learn a whole lot about her.

Matt, my boy...stick to the script.

Damon made his money in those Bourne movies, which generally have Middle America (read: a lot of Republican) audiences. He’s playing with fire here.

I think there is a really good chance that Matt Damon could be an idiot. And I think that’s a really scary thing because I don’t know anything about him. I don’t think in eight weeks I’m going to know anything about him. I know that he was an actor of a really, really small talent. And he’s been able to read for less than two years. I just don’t understand... I think his pick was made for demonstrating cultural elite issues with his Hollywood buddies, but in terms of actual governance it’s a disaster.

All the trash talk and errors by the leftists since Palin came on board are hilarious... showing their true colors and general cluelessness.

The thing that will really crush the left come voting time is the this stream of condescension.

When you can talk for more than two minutes without a script or teleprompter, let us know.

This is somewhat discouraging, because I always thought Damon was a good actor and was the better half of the Damon-Affleck duo.

I used to live in a town that was the winter home to two circuses. Since I no longer live there, and circus monkeys are hard to come by, I’ll have to resort to getting my political information from Matt Damon.

Matt, we know that Sarah Palin:

1. Does not hate America.
2. Was born in the United States.
3. Was never muslim, and has never lied about it.
4. Is not friends with terrorists.
5. Is not the terrorists’ choice for president.
6. Never received terrorist money to buy a house.

Feel free to add to the list...

So, I guess pretty-boy here is inferring that we should all make our political decisions solely on his level of knowledge of Candidate A, B, or C.

STFU, Matt. I don't care what you think.

Damon is hardly an “unbiased commentator. He's made an “nonpartisan” commercial about changing Health care, which we all know is a democratic talking point.

I’m no fan of Hollywood types trying to give their expert opinion. Most of them are uneducated and live in a sphere of influence that is tainted.

The thing that really annoys me about it is that it is bad for business. If they would shut up, they would end up making more money. In the end they complain about “free speech” because the people buying tickets boycott them.

With all that said, I don’t think he’s an idiot. Didn’t he write Good Will Hunting? Think what you may about actors, but I think constructing a plot, writing it, and having it appeal to people takes brains.

Matt should ask the Dixie Chicks what happens to your career when you put left wing politics ahead of the views of your fans. It's akin to a bartender pissing in the beer. People stop patronizing you.

Well Matt, if you know that then you do know something about her, don't you. Also, if you don't know anything more about her in eight weeks, then that's your fault, you idiot. There's all kinds of outlets on the Internet or elsewhere where reliable information is available. All you have to do is take advantage of it.

I just don't understand...

We know, Matt, we know. Now, just go back to being the useless clod you are and leave the Country's business to those of us who do know, and who are capable of preserving it.

The libs love that "really, really small town" talking point. That would have more relevance if she had not moved on to become governor of one of the 57 (sic) states. It's equivalent to asking why the NY Jets would pay so much money to get Brett Favre at quarterback. He went to a small school (Southern Miss) that is not known as a football powerhouse. (Let's just ignore his Hall of Fame career at Green Bay for now.)
