Damon 'honored' by Joe the Plumber's shout-out
AP ^

Posted on 10/23/2008 10:57:53 PM PDT by Chet 99

SAN FRANCISCO – Matt Damon is honored that the most recent celebrity of the presidential campaign — "Joe the Plumber" — dropped his name in an interview.

"That was a surprise. I hadn't heard that Joe the Plumber dropped my name," Damon said. "I'm honored to be in the little passion play, to be an extra."

The plumber, whose real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher, became an overnight media sensation after he was referred to constantly in the final presidential debate. When the press arrived at his Ohio home, Wurzelbacher, a Republican, said he hoped he wouldn't make a fool of himself with all the attention, "I don't have a lot of pull. It's not like I'm Matt Damon."

“I’m honored to be in the little passion play, to be an extra.”

What the hell is that supposed the mean?
Joe the Plumber probably works hard in the real world,
Matt Damons gets paid millions for playing pretend.

I wondered that, too. I’m familiar with the term passion play, but I don’t get how it fits in here.

Didn’t Damon say having Palin as President was like a bad Disney movie?

Having Joe Biden could incite a nuclear holocaust by proxy...

I’ll go with Sarah...thanks.

I couldn’t stand any of his movies now..I wished that he actually died in Saving Private Ryan and let Vin Diesel live.

The plumber, whose real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher

Typical AP smear. IF they had included his full name, Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, their little juvenile squeel would not have worked.

His daddy may have named him Junior but when his mom remarried (because her marriage to Obama was a fraud, the man was a bigamist), he became Barack Hussein Soreto.

How can you support a man for president who has no experience whatsoever,
and slam the other team's vice-presidential candidate who has plenty?

She won't be president on day one, and he will.  Seriously, this evidences an
incredible mental disconnect.

And then you look at what he has stood for and still does, take a look at what
she has stood for and still does, and still come away thinking he's better?

Once again, eighth grade logic on parade.

“I’m honored to be in the little passion play, to be an extra.”

Is it an off the cuff reference to the media crucifixion of "Joe the Plumber"?

I guess Matt's looking around for a spear right about now.

Okay, I can see you all aren’t able to translate from a$$hole to English so I will see if I can help. “Passion Play” and “Disney Movies”, in my opinion are hits at Christianity and Christians.

He is one of those useful idiots who thinks Christians are licking their chops to take over the country and make Matt be a good boy and go to church.

He thinks Christians are just as dangerous as radical islam. The Palin family are just regular people, a rather large family, a loving family that clings to their religion and guns.

Matt despises these people, especially Sarah because they are what he sees as good. In Hollywood and Liberal Elitist Bizarro World, good is evil and evil is good.

Palin is a threat to him because she is “intolerant” and clings to her guns and religion. She is very dangerous to him. If elected she might turn the country into a nation of intolerant hicks, where Matt and his Boyfriend Ben can’t get married.

That is what this moron is on about I believe. Disney equals wholesome in his mind and by Passion Play he was making some poor attempt at sarcasm.

Don’t try. The short version is Damon is insulting everything religion.

Damon is a fool; but that should be apparent. Haven’t seen any of them really think.

What the hell is that supposed the mean?

He is very condescending, shame on him. Just think of the outcry if a right winger made those remarks.

Yep, and my favorite Vin Diesel anagram I End Lives. Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick, A Man Apart great action flicks ...

My favorite Vin Diesel movie though is The Pacifier. Typical action hero makes kid movie but, I think it is better than Kindergarten Cop type movies. It is the typical cheesy softy action hero movie but, Brad Garret gets his a$$ handed too him.
