    The Bourne Buffoonery When "The Simpsons" movie turns out to be more realistic than "The Bourne Ultimatum," you know something is up. Nevertheless, the thriller is a big hit, proving once again that film audiences now want live action cartoons rather than crisp, realistic films like "The Ipcress File" or "The French Connection." For those of you not familiar with the Bourne series, Matt Damon plays a CIA agent who becomes involved in the "Program" (as in get with the). This sinister plan results in Damon being brainwashed, making him a lean, mean killing machine with no personal memories. Thus,...

    John Kerry's notorious "stuck in Iraq" statement, echoed by actor Matt Damon, suggesting that the United States military is a last resort for those without the education or finances to pursue other options, has been roundly refuted by Deputy Under Secretary of Defense Bill Carr. Among other areas, Carr has responsibility for recruiting and retenton. Secretary Carr appeared on yesterday's edition of my "rightANGLE" TV show. In addition to commenting on a wide range of recruitment-related topics, Sec. Carr had this to say about the Kerry-Damon remarks: "Two-thirds of those entering the military are drawn from the top half, so...

    It goes without saying that if you're the Commander-in-Chief, among the first people whose criticism you'd want to take into account would be . . . Hollywood movie stars. At least, that would seem to be Chris Matthews's opinion. Have a look at this video clip from this afternoon's Hardball. The specific object of Chris's ire was the president's suggestion at his press conference today that Americans shop more. Asked Matthews: "I wonder if he's in touch with the critics out there, like Matt Damon, the actor, who was on this program Monday?"Well, naturally, Matt's views on shopping should be...

    I just saw a commercial about a new movie...Syriana. It is yet, another movie set in the Middle East staring George Clooney and Matt Damon. So what's it about? Well, I'll let Yahoo tell it. http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hv&id=1808631296&cf=info Robert Baer (Clooney), a 21-year veteran of the CIA, spent his entire career investigating terrorists around the globe. As the dangers of terrorism increased, Baer watched as the CIA's funding was cut, politics overtook judgment, and warning signs were ignored. But the struggle becomes personal when and oil executive (Damon) and his wife (Peet) are faced with a family tragedy. Hmm. Sounds like another...

    PRAGUE, Czech Republic (AP) - North Korea's embassy in Prague has demanded that the film "Team America: World Police'' be banned in the Czech Republic, saying the movie harms their country's reputation, a report said Saturday. North Korean diplomats issued their protest to the Foreign Ministry on Thursday, saying the film ridicules North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, the Lidove Noviny daily said. The film, by "South Park'' creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, uses a cast of puppets _ including one of Kim _ to poke fun at the U.S. war on terror. The team of marionettes fights terrorism,...

    Just a week until Election Day and no honest person can tell you who's going to win the presidency. I've put modest amounts of dough on George W. Bush to squeak past John Kerry by a 1.5 percent margin in the popular vote, while taking the Electoral College with a tally short of 300. That's a far cry from 2000, when I was certain the Texan would defeat Al Gore comfortably. There's too much conflicting information buzzing on the Internet about last-minute dirty tricks, upcoming stories that'll embarrass either candidate and an absurd number of national state polls that are...

    While promoting his latest film overseas this week, a major Hollywood actor said that he would be willing to pay $1 million to guarantee Democratic presidential nominee John F. Kerry would win the election on November 2. "Bourne Supremacy" star Matt Damon, who has been in Berlin appearing at the premier of his film, made his partisan comment in protest of President George W. Bush on foreign soil. "I would pay $1 million to have Kerry in the White House," Damon exclaimed. This is not the first time a major American entertainer has expressed anti-Bush political opinions while on foreign...

    Hometown hottie Matt Damon doesn't rest when it comes to politicking for his presidential pick John Kerry - even whilst in Germany! ``I would pay $1 million to have Kerry in the White House,'' the actor said at the premiere of ``The Bourne Supremacy'' in Berlin the other night. Because we all know how important those German swing voters will be in the election next month! So it comes as no surprise to learn that ``South Park'' creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone picked Jason Bourne's alter ego as one of their Hollywood lefties to lampoon in their new controversial...

    Matt Damon has admitted that he'll probably grow old with Ben Affleck rather than the woman of his dreams. Speaking to German magazine Brigitte Damon said he believed in his long term friendship with Affleck and added: "I can well imagine growing old with him." He also said that it was unlikely a woman would come between them. "My longest relationship with a woman lasted two and a half years. That's very short when I consider how long I've been friends with Ben," he said. The actor, who wrote and starred in Good Will Hunting together with Affleck, also stood...

    Moveon.org has yet again made a new attempt to bring down Bush, a commercial talking about Bush losing 1.8 million jobs and it's voiced by Matt Damon, the commercial doesn't talk about 9-11 being involved or the clinton administration.

Inside a bombed military headquarters, soldiers found strips of film negatives showing images of people who appeared to have met violent deaths. The images, shown to a reporter, appeared to document injuries on the bodies of three different people. Scores of other negatives kept in the...
