Matt Damon: Sarah Palin is like ‘a really bad Disney movie’

September 10th, 2008 // 740 Comments

Matt Damon basically Jason Bourne’d Governor Sarah Palin in the face today while in Toronto promoting ONEXONE a Canadian children’s charity. His major concern seems to be what happens when John McCain kicks the bucket in office if the Republicans win?:

“You do the actuary tables, there’s a one out of three chance, if not more, that McCain doesn’t survive his first term, and it’ll be President Palin. It’s like a really bad Disney movie, “The Hockey Mom.’ Oh, I’m just a hockey mom from Alaska, and she’s president. “She’s facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. It’s absurd.”

I… uh… wow. Okay, guys, try not to completely light the comment board on fire then piss on it. Otherwise, how else will I know how you truly feel about Kim Kardashian’s ass? See? I care about the issues.

    @700. Tom: Yeah, because we all care about what the “fnck” you think. Idiot.

    Sorry. I guess that comes with the territory. (Me being a Cons Rep) But seriously, can you really expect me to have any proper command of the English language when my belief system is so backwards? I, like all good Cons Reps, believe that they should hand out guns at birth, keep sex ed out of the schools, make everyone pray to Jeebus in the public schools, shun those wicked, immoral babykillers, constantly remind all fags they are perverts (and going straight to hell), institute the death penalty for all crimes over jaywalking, and most importantly (this is KEY) that my views are always right (cuz it says so right in the Bible) and who ever disagrees with me is a pinko commie left wing anti-american traitor, and most likely going to hell. Also, I do not consider myself racist (because I have an african-american friend named Carl. uh, or is it Cal? No, wait– it’s James.) but anyone who has a name like B. Hussain Obama is obviously a terrorist. If he were smart, he would have changed it to something more wholesome and American, like “Timothy” and a nice, non-sinister last name like “McVeigh”.

    Now if you will excuse me, I have a congregation to lead, some boyscouts to molest, a hooker to smoke meth with (good to have church after payday! $$$ ) and then it’s back home to the wife and kids. God Bless America!

    oh yea– and the Dems are a bunch of mealy-mouthed hypocrites.

  4. hee haw

    Tom, you’re awesome!

    But would you do her????? I asked the question and everyone convieniently over looked this most pressing of issues…would you do her and how many people will vote just cause they would….hey guys it’s the first time in history that you can say “the vice president sure has a nice ass….i’d like to get me some of that”. With out being punched in the face. (Or getting some weird looks….depends where you come from). I am still weighing the options….is she MILF or not….i’d have to say I don’t know, cause up until 2 days ago I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THE BITCH.

    PS – Who’s Obama’s running mate….Halle Barry?

  6. Lord Snuff

    …..Ok…..fuck just found out that Obama’s running mate is called Biden.

    Are you all blind “Obama Biden” – ” Osama Binladen” –

    Can this be mere coincidence? I THINK NOT.

    ……on to more pressing matters….would you fuck Sarah Palin.

    I’m tired of the Hypocrisy

    If you’re a minority and you’re selected for a job over more qualified candidates you’re a ‘token hire.’ If you’re a conservative and you’re selected for a job over more qualified andidates you’re a ‘game changer.’

    Black teen pregnancies? A ‘crisis’ in black America; white teen pregnancies? A blessed event.’

    If you grow up in Hawaii you’re ‘exotic.’ Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, you’re the quintessential ‘American story.’

    Similarly, if you name you kid Barack you’re ‘unpatriotic.’ Name your kid Track; you’re ‘colorful.’

    If you’re a Democrat and you make a VP pick without fully vetting the individual you’re ‘reckless.’  A Republican who doesn’t fully vet is a ‘maverick.’

    If you spend 3 years as a community organizer growing your organization
    from  a staff of 1 to 13 and your budget from $70,000 to $400,000, then become the  first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new African American voters,  spend 12 years as a  Constitutional Law professor, then spend nearly 8 more  years as a State  Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, =2 0becoming chairman  of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, then spend nearly  4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of  nearly 13 million people, sponsoring=2
    0131 bills
    and serving on the Foreign Affairs,  Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you are  woefully inexperienced.

      If you spend 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the  mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, then spend 20 months as the governor of a state with 650,000 people, then you’ve got the most executive experience of anyone  on either ticket, are the Commander in Chief of the Alaska military and are  well qualified to lead the nation should you be called

    upon to do so because  your state is the closest state to Russia .

    If you are a Democratic male candidate who is popular with millions of people you are an ‘arrogant celebrity’. If you are a popular republican female candidate you are ‘energizing the base’.

    If you are a younger male candidate who thinks for himself and makes his own decisions you are ‘presumptuous’.

    If you are an older male candidate who makes last minute decisions you refuse to explain, you are a ‘shoot from the hip’ maverick.

    If you are a candidate with a Harvard law degree you are ’an elitist-out of touch’ with the real America.

    If you are a legacy (dad and granddad were admirals) graduate of Annapolis, with multiple disciplinary infractions you are a hero.

    If you manage a multi-million dollar nationwide cam paign, you are an ‘empty
    suit’.

    If you are a part time mayor of a town of 7000 people, you are an ‘experienced executive’.

    If you go to a south side Chicago church, your beliefs are ’extremist’.
    If you believe in creationism and don’t believe global warming is man made, you are ‘strongly principled’.

    If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian. If you have been married to the same woman with whom you’ve been wed to for 19 years and raising 2 beautiful daughters with, you’re ’risky’.

    If you’re a black single mother of 4 who waits for 22 hours after her water breaks to seek medical attention, you’re an irresponsible parent,
    endangering the life of your unborn child. But if you’re a white married mother who waits 22 hours, you’re spunky.

    If you’re a 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton, the right-wing press calls you ‘First dog.’ If you’re a 17-year old pregnant unwed daughter of a Republican, the right-wing press calls you ‘beautiful’ and ‘courageous.’

    If you kill an endangered species, you’re an excellent hunter. If you have an abortion you’re not a Christian, you’re a murderer (forget about if it happen while being date raped©)

    If you teach abstinence only in sex education, you get teen parents. If you teach responsible age appropriat e sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

    Darthjedi is 100% right. I will admit it was a very smart move picking Palin to inject a little photogenic charm into McCain’s heretofore lackluster campaign but if he wins then the whole country is fucked. Although I support Obama I don’t think McCain is evil or anywhere near as incompetent as Dubya. Maybe he genuinely wants to change things. The inescapable fact, though, is he is an old man and not an especially healthy one. Picking Palin as a running mate to score from free press (check) and a bump up in the polls (double check) is one thing. Having this woman as PRESIDENT — considering the state America is already in before either candidate takes office — is another matter. Matt Damon hit the nail on the head. Everyone on this board who’s badmouthing him are just too blinded by their visceral hatred for Obama the Elitist Muslim Closet Gangsta to really hear what Damon’s saying. Because, Hollywood actor or not, every word he said is true.

    scottlah, so you feel that everyone in the entire rest of the world feels the way you do? What, you’ve traveled every corner of the world and have met the entire 6 billion people to come to your conclusion? Wow, whatever you’re smoking, I want some.

    Dude, I’ve met some ex-pats here in the U.S. who understandibly hate Bush, yet, at the same time, they aren’t exactly thrilled about Obama either. And I’ve read enough message boards (even on this very one) from foreigners who don’t trust him or think he’s some kind of a messiah. Your statement is ridiculous.

  10. spike

    Only gullible simpletons believe in inside jobs and conspiracy theories.

  11. Fernie

    You damn well that Obama wants to have sex with Sarah Palin…because he hates that melodramatic banshee he calls his wife.

  12. Feminazi

    Well said, 707. I couldn’t agree more.

    Here’s one of my personal faves…

    Girl has sex = easy
    Girl enjoys sex = whore
    Girl has lots of sex = deviant slut
    Girl has child out of wedlock = irresponsible

    Double if she’s under 18.

    Guy has sex = normal
    Guy enjoys sex = healthy
    Guy has lots of sex = badge of honor
    Guy has child out of wedlock = so what? (and on to the next one…)

    It would be a cold day in hell before I would let the Conservative Republicans take away my right to choose, and co-opt my own body to be used as a vessel (here’s the irony) to birth more females into this world who ALSO are nothing more than this. Life is not worth living without choice. (And before any of you start hurling your wrong-headed accusations, I am sterile BY CHOICE, I chose adoption over having my own, and yes I AM married– to a lovely man. …and I proudly worship at the altar of cock.) I would fight until my dying breath my right to individual sovereignty, and that means throwing my support behind the only candidate that not only supports my right to choose, but is in line with nearly all of my LIBERAL (gasp!) viewpoints. Obama 08 !!

  13. EssZeeEff

    706 please see 710…

    Sound like anyone you know?

    *sneaks in quietly over the weekend*
    *soaks entire thread with gasoline*
    (glug glug glug)
    *quietly flicks a lit cigarette at the shiny pool of accelerant*
    FFFWWWWWOOOOOMMMM !!!

    Now I’ll just piss all over the smoldering ashes, and the ‘Fish guy can rest easy that his wish for this comment board has come full circle.

    Oh. and this whole Kim Kardashian’s ass thing– If you want to see the world’s biggest ass, check out Bill Maher. This douche never fails to dissapoint.

  15. El Diablo

    You’d think with your country’s economy and social fabric in the state it is in, you’d want someone diplomatic in the top job, who knows how to pick their battles – and knows how to properly cost it. Polls outside of the US overwhelmingly (4-1) suggest people would prefer Obama in the white house. Not countries that want to invade you. Just average citizens in developed countries who can’t even believe the last 8 years happened in your once respected nation.

    And to those who criticize “liberals” for comparing Palin and Obama, when they should be comparing McCain and Obama – maybe you should be asking the Republican P.R. machine why THEY keep kindling peripheral debates about the “lipstick incident” or whatever other disingenuous outrage they decide to run with? I mean, I’m thousand of kilometers away from this campaign, and it can nauseate me from here. It’s pretty obvious the Republicans are pushing her to the front to AVOID engaging in any policy debate, because lets face it, that’s where the Dems have a prospect of gaining traction.

    But I’m guessing McCain is gonna win. It’ll be sad watching you guys sucumbs to the eventual economic ruin that a myopic, military-driven agenda brings. So, uh…yeah…Good luck with that!

  16. File Under Fu

    Obviously, she never said what this typical Hollywood college dropout eurasian is telling everyone she said. She represents all Americans of every concern, but leave it to this homeless whiner to screw those words up to his satisfaction.

    El Diablo, like Damon and Obama, is a poser. They speak lies, yet, still, no one cares what they think.

  17. El Diablo

    Ooooooh “Poser”. Is that really the best you can come up with?

    Someone a little cranky because their country is screwed? :D

    It’s okay. Here, have a cookie and some milk and the republicans will make it all better.

  18. fuck palins stupid ass. here are some facts.

    fact: palin did ask about banning books, did fire the librarian who opposed the idea, however allowed her to be rehired because of public outcry.

    fact: palin is a pentacostal and the majority of these people are young earth creationists who believe the earth was formed within the last 10,000 years. in fact, surprisingly, the majority of americans think the earth was formed within the last 10,000 years.

    fact: damon was off in his actuary tables. excuse: mccain has had bouts with cancer, and was a pow for 5 years (considerable amount of stress), so it wouldnt be surprising if he did die within his first term.

    fact: official mccain/palin response to questions about palins national security credentials is she knows about oil because alaska has it, and alaska is close to russia on a map. no joke.

    fact: all who think palin is okay as president is fucking retarded beyond all doubt.

    fact: matt damon rocks.

  19. Dont think so

    Fact:
    #718 fuck palins stupid ass. here are some facts. is a douche bag
    Fact:
    Anyone who thinks Matt Damon rocks needs a psychiatric evaluation
    Fact:
    All of your facts are false

  20. Fernie

    If you live in California and are voting for Obama…..you’re a retard.

  21. I Know you are but what am I?

    If your name is Fernie and you live in space 720, you’re a tard. (Why does this feel like a Jeff Foxworthy routine?)

  22. Matt

    Matt Damon is smarter than everyone who posted here. Unless there’s anyone here to went to Harvard, too.

  23. Matt

    Matt Damon is smarter than everyone who posted here. Unless there’s anyone here who* went to Harvard, too.

    California tends to be a blue state, Fernie… deal with it.

  25. is it so wrong?

    To all the people who are saying they don’t care what Matt Damon thinks, Didnt you click on the video to get it to play? It isn’t like he came to your house and started ranting. You clicked on the video to see what he had to say, because apparently you cared enough to spend a few minutes listening to it. Then when you realized that you didn’t agree with him you decided that you didn’t care.
    If you really didn’t care, why play the video?

  26. Kit

    Thank you, Matt, for expressing what every level]headed American is thinking. Amen, brother : ) We need change…. not another awful Republican reign. Look where that has gotten us. You have to remember McCain was a huge Bush supporter (gag me with a spoon).

  27. heidispokes

    I don’t see why people bother posting comments about how Palin or Damon or Obama or Biden or McCain is an idiot/asshole/moron/whatever…

    obviously those of us who are democrats will vote democrat, and those who are republican will vote republican.

    democrats think republicans are scary, republicans think dems are scary.

    at the end of the day it’s not about experience – i personally would rather have an inexperienced obama because i agree with what he stands for, and think republicans are the devil.

    but i also understand that republicans will think obama is the worst thing that can happen to the us.

    which is why we have elections, where people will vote and then one of the sides will win.

    and whether the candidates, matt damon, or the folks who post comments are college grads or not, yale grads or janitors, is so beside the point that it’s pathetic that people still even think like that. seriously people? getting a degree – even from an ivy league school – will not make an ignorant person stop being ignorant. (and yes, i went to university and i appreciate the value of education. but a person won’t stop being a damn fool, or sexist, or homophobic, or small-minded, just because he or she went to college for 4 years.

    the comment war is … kind of idiotic.
    (yes, i know, i commented too. because i find all this so ridiculous that i had to. but i realize it’s just as pointless as everyone else’s comments…).

  28. A bad Disney Movie. Omg, so funny – but then so true.

    Also agreeint with #109

    Make sure everyone is going to vote!

  29. Jammer

    Matt just articulated (not very well, but earnestly), what the rest of the world has been open mouthed with wonder at…Palin, very possibly will become (by default) the commander in chief of the largest military power in the world and a national economy on the brink of collapse…she’s a goddahmed housewife with a minor, minor political brownie badge & a slightly disturbing view of what is normal, who’s being used by the republicans to bring in the disgruntled Hillary voters…and there so stupid there actually falling for it….it’s being operated like a game show…scarey times indeed…darker day’s ahead for all…

  30. S.L

    So much for religious freedom…OMG she’s a Christian and she doesn’t believe that the world is millions and millions of years old!

    See those people who believe the world is that old is basing it on Carbon dating, Carbon dating determines on how old things are by measuring the carbon in them.

    Well this Carbon dating that people believe in 100% is the same Carbon dating that was done on a freshly killed seal and the carbon dating showed that it was 1,300 years old.

    So make fun of our HISTORIC written bible, but what defense and proof do you have?? Carbon dating is not accurate, and can only be accurate at the most up to a few thousand years, not millions! So belittling the Christian belief of how old the world may be is insane when your way is just as “unrelieable”.

    Jeesh what is wrong with people…Matt Damon needs to STFU and just act

    Great video

  33. new USA

    what’s the difference. It’s gonna be dick-sucking jews (see article/pictures: http://www.come-and-hear.com/editor/br-smc/index.html), controlling the white house (see article and pictures: http://www.radioislam.org/jewish-photos/manipulat-the-wold/world-leaders-manipulated.htm).

    also look up the website for jdl (jewish defense league) who are trying to bring US down from within.

    who gives a shit about who the president will be.

  34. Fernie

    Are you people still talking about ol’ shit for brains Damon? lol

    No one’s posted anything for the past few days because of the financial crisis. I for one am glad the bailout is happening. Furthermore….I’m happy that Washington Mutual took a giant dump…because years ago they took $1,000 Dollars out of MY checking account and then sent ME to collections for it and ruined my credit. Anyway……….

    “It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.” Thank you Mark Twain

    “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. Thanks Matt Damon

    Hey Matty!! How can you make an informed decision based on NOT Knowing!

    Thanks Matt…..you really are a genius…………………

    Hey Matty you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind…hey matty! Hey Matty!
    Hey Matty you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind…hey matty! Hey Matty!

  37. In this grand pattern of things you’ll get an A+ for effort. Exactly where you actually confused everybody ended up being on your facts. You know, as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be much more true at this point. Having said that, let me reveal to you what exactly did do the job. The authoring is certainly very powerful and that is possibly why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, even though I can certainly see the leaps in reasoning you make, I am not necessarily sure of just how you seem to unite your ideas which produce the actual conclusion. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your position however trust in the future you actually link the facts better.
