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.

  1. SarahPalin

    Actually she did try to ban books. She wanted to censor many of the books in the library in the small town she was mayor of. She also threatened to fire the librarian if she did not ban these books. Of course no one would let her do this, and so she dropped it.

    She also tried to sue the Federal Government for putting Polar Bears on the endangered species list – true story.

    Whoever thinks Sarah Palin could do a good job needs to be smacked in the head because they obviously are not thinking clearly. WTF people WTF.

    GEORGE BUSH IS FROM YALE – DO YOU BELIEVE EVERYTHING HE SAYS TOO? LOSER.

  4. Bethie

    I didn’t know Matt Damon could do math . . .
    Didn’t he NOT graduate from Harvard?

  5. Amanda

    NUMBER ONE IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER YOU HATE SARAH PALIN OR NOT… DAMON’S ARGUMENT IS COMPLETELY SEXIST AND OUTDATED AND THAT IS THE POINT HERE. DID HE SERIOUSLY ACT LIKE A HOCKEY MOM COULDN’T DO ANYTHING MORE? OBVIOUSLY, HER BEING A MOTHER HASN’T EFFECTED HER GOVERNING HER HOME STATE AND THE SPORT THAT HER CHILDREN PLAY AND THAT SHE SUPPORTS IS NOT A VALID POLITICAL POINT. MAYBE MATT DAMON SHOULD STICK TO KIMMEL/SILVERMAN PARODIES AND KEEP HIS 1950′S IDEALS DEEP INSIDE HIS EMPTY HEAD.

  6. Come-Honor-Face

    I will agree with Matt Damon, I don’t trust anything that bleeds for 4 days and doesn’t die…….

  7. Kevinsucks

    Who’s the “maroon” Kevin?

  8. Sarah Silverman

    Matt Damon’s impotent, right?

  9. Muff Divin Man

    Give me a freakin break. and B.Obama is qualified? Never had an executive position at any level, not sure if he’s had a private sector job, has not done anything in the senate except self promotion, and can’t even write is own political puns…has to steal them from a cartoonist. Give me a Mayor/Governor who understands local needs politics and fire all these assholes in Washington…republican and democrat

  10. GW Bush

    John McCain & Sarah Palin are wrong for this country…bottomline: SHE IS A RELIGIOUS EXTREMIST and HE IS NO MAVERICK

  11. Lip Stick wearin pig

    Give me a freakin break. and B.Obama is qualified? Never had an executive position at any level, not sure if he’s had a private sector job, has not done anything in the senate except self promotion, and can’t even write is own political puns…has to steal them from a cartoonist.

  12. ben affleck

    I nominate Matt Damon for president of HOT.

  13. Bsider

    I think Team America said it best:

    Helen Hunt: I’m… Helen Hunt!
    Samuel L. Jackson: Samuel L. Jackson!
    Matt Damon: [stupidly] Mmmaaattt Dammmmmooonnnn!

  14. Shut the fuck up Celebtards!

    Fucking typical Liberal bullshit. Always playing the god damn scare tactics angle. The reason is they don’t know shit, and the typical ignorant asshole who never picks up a paper to read the news does not shit either. They see dipshits like Matt Damon spouting off and think Matt Damon is a celebrity so I will vote and think the way he does.

  15. Pinbacker

    AAAAAAAAAAAhaaah, right on Jason Bourne!

  16. Dianamo

    I hear those quotes were made up. Matty Matt…shut up and watch some baseball or something.

  17. Robert

    MATT DAMON IS A FUCKING IDIOT first of all, McCain alone has more experience then the other party put together. Last I checked Palin is not running for president herself. What’s scarier, Obama for president or Palin for VP.

    Just how much Senate experience does Barack Obama have in terms of actual work days? Not much.

    From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That’s how many days the Senate was actually in session and working.

    After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World, and fill the shoes of Abraham Lincoln, FDR, JFK and Ronald Reagan.

  18. obannion

    I think #63 said it best

  19. 64?

    Ummm 64?! Liberals play the scare tactics angle? Dude the only thing that was discussed at the RNC is our Nation’s Security and 9/11 and how we need someone who can keep our country safe and how if Obama wins our country will not be secure. Republicans invented using scare tactics to get people to vote for them. Also, no one is going to vote for someone because Matt Damon tells them to. They will not vote for Palin because they’re sane. Grow up.

  20. E.

    Matt Damon thinks soccer moms shouldn’t be mayor, or governor, or VP.

    Well I think actors shouldn’t try to comment on politics they don’t understand. Everyone has their place, right Mr. Damon?

  21. barakmycock

    Damon proved what a butt monkey he is. He should check his facts before he flaps his man hungry lips. Anyone of my dogs or goats is more qualified than Obama to be president. The greatest generation created the most self absorbed generation with a sense of entitlement added.

  22. Jethro

    Entertainers, with either conservatives or liberal views, should just shut their pie hole up. They are constantly surrounded by sycophants who tell them how great they are, so naturally they think that extends outside the studios or stage.

    Never forget 9-11-01

  23. Amanda

    OH YEAH AND NUMBER TWO HE COMPLETELY INVALIDATES HIS OWN VIEWS BY SPEAKING ABOUT “WHAT IF” SHE BECOMES PRESIDENT AND HOW THAT WOULD BE SO HORRIBLE BY CITING HER AS NOT BEING QUALIFIED… UHH, HELLO HAVE YOU MET OBAMA? YEAH… HE ACTUALLY IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT…. THAT’S LIKE A BAD MOVIE THEY RUN ONLY ON BET(HOW’S THAT FOR AN OUTDATED WAY OF THINKING? WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT DAMON HAS) SOME SCARY MOVIE WHERE SOME AFRICAN AMERICAN GUY COMES OUT OF NO WHERE TRYING TO BE PRESIDENT BASED ON CHARISMATIC STOLEN SPEECHES. NOW WE’VE MADE IT AN EQUAL PLAYING FIELD FOR MATT DAMON’S WAY OF THINKING… ENJOY.

  24. Queen Hilary

    Sarah Palin got where she is on her on her own merits. I, Hilary Clinton, got where am because I rode on my husband’s coattails.

  25. Skip Smith

    Speaking of absurd, how about celebrities doing political analysis?

  26. tfis is how it goes:
    - the vietnam hero will have a heart attack at the 2nd phone call

    -piggie palin takes the chair.

    -fucking cold war because of a bitchy hairdresser from Alaska.

    Gee, even the muslim Obama it’s awesome compared to this!

  27. Yeah Right #72.
    Inside job ?
    Having any problems with free-fall collapse speed through undamaged steel structure? Molten metal in the ruins ? Stand down of NORAD – that type of thing .. ?

  28. Val

    Math Damon… Matt Damon South Park put him in his place

  29. fag

    fuck all these candidates. none of them want to legalize drugs and all of them want to keep war on the table with nations like iran.

  30. wanks

    Wow…I got so much more respect for Matt. He is totally right!

  31. Huh?

    If Sarah Palin is so in touch with community issues, why did she make rape victims in Wasilla pay for their own rape kits? Shouldn’t the mayor want to put rapists behind bars? That sounds like a pretty important community issue to me.

    http://www.frontiersman.com/articles/2000/05/23/news.txt

    This is not from a blog or a made up story. It is an actual article from the local paper in Wasilla.

  32. eric cartman

    Sarah Palin !!!!!! get your bitch ass in the kitchen……………..and make me some pie!!!!

  33. CaptainMorgan

    Umm, anyone think that dinosaurs WERE here 4,000 years ago? They were here MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of years ago…duh.

    Then again someone really nerdy will say that crocodiles, sharks, dragonflies, and other species’ variants have been here during and SINCE the age of dinosaurs. Nerds!

    HOWEVER…as an outsider (not american) I cannot imagine McCain winning the election. Palin is a knee-jerk reaction to Obama not having Clinton as his VP (maybe she refused?). It’s sad that the media is eating this up and feeding it to the US public. Nevermind her scarce political or wacked out religious background. Die hard Republicans will endorse a fuc*ing mannequin if it was put in her place. I don’t get how the Republicans who have screwed over the US so badly stand a shot of getting in again. McCain is the new face, everyone in the background stays the same. Wake up America!

    What are conservatives doing reading thesuperficial anyway? Is nothing sacred anymore? Why shouldn’t entertainers speak their minds about their political views. Some of those entertainers have bigger brains than most of you anyway.

    PS: The victims of 9-11 don’t want you using them and their honor as your excuse to encourage and support a fraudulent war or to support the extreme right-wing, anti-equality psycho-babble bullspit.

  35. Tkastan

    I’m not sure why actors feel compelled to try to swing votes to their favorite liberal candidates. Matt Damon and his ilk are people who make a really good living by pretending(acting) to be other people! I wish they’d all just shut up, look pretty and hang out on the beach in bikinis, maybe get drunk and get in a fight, you know the stuff we’ve come to expect from them!

  36. Deacon Jones

    “Well played”

    What’s she going to do when Putin is glaring her down in Moscow, slap him on the back and start talking about fucking hockey? She’s worse than Dan Quayle.

  37. Brittany

    #59: Thank you for speaking some sense! And somehow Matt is implying that Barack Obama is substantially more qualified than Palin? The whole Reverend Wright ordeal made Obama look like a ‘really bad Disney movie’ as well. And don’t forget that Obama’s tenure as a community organizer and brief stint in the Senate makes him just as competent for the job as any Joe Blow in America. Just wow. Good thing I’m not voting for either McCain or Obama; I was out of this election as soon as the media overhauled the primary and the entire Democratic Party turned against the most qualified of the candidates: Clinton.

  40. Lwags

    I didn’t realize Matt Damn and I had so much in common. Well, that about sums up how I feel about her. Only I would not have said it in such nice terms. You are correct deacon, Palin is worse than Dan Quayle. I mean, what were the thinking when they picked her? The only was I can rationalize it, is to assume they are trying to throw the election. Makes sense.

  41. Yiky

    Matt you dumb fuck. The sosh/racist running for President, Obama, has about as much or less experience as Palin. Clearly lacking intelligence like most actors.

  42. Smart&Cute2Boot

    Actually, here is what Obama has done. It doesn’t sound like just a bunch of self-promotion to me.

    Below I summarize Senator Obama’s legislative record in the US Senate.
    First I list the bills he sponsored that have become law.
    Next I summarize the bills that he has sponsored or cosponsored since he became
    a US Senator in 2005.
    I have only included major pieces of legislation and have not summarized
    continuing resolutions or naming post offices, for example.
    His record suggests several priorities and the bills he supports address many
    of our most pressing problems.
    Most of his legislative effort has been in the area of Energy Efficiency and
    Climate Change (25 bills), health care (21 bills) and public health (20 bills),
    consumer protection/labor (14 bills), the needs of Veterans and the Armed Forces
    (13 bills), Congressional Ethics and Accountability (12 bills), Foreign Policy
    (10 bills) Voting and Elections (9 bills), Education (7 bills), Hurricane
    Katrina Relief (6), the Environment (5 bills), Homeland Security (4 bills), and
    discrimination (4 bills).
    Of the 15 bills Senator Obama sponsored or co-sponsored in 2005-7 that became
    law:
    Two addressed foreign policy:
    Promote relief, security and democracy in the Congo (2125)
    Develop democratic institutions in areas under Palestinian control (2370).
    Three addressed public health:
    Improve mine safety (2803)
    Increased breast cancer funding (597)
    Reduce preterm delivery and complications, reduce infant mortality (707).
    Two addressed openness and accountability in government:
    Strengthening the Freedom of Information Act (2488)

    Amend the Patriot Act (2167)
    One addressed the needs of the Armed Forces
    Wave passport fees to visit graves, attend memorials/funerals of veterans
    abroad (1184).
    Of the 570 bills Senator Obama introduced into the Senate during the 109th and

  43. Hey #77 good point.
    So # 1 – # 88 plus…..ummmm…
    Personally I’m still having a few problems with concepts like gravity, resistance, and free fall collapse speed.
    (Matt – maybe take out a protractor and help us out here.)

  44. Jeanne

    Matt Damon is absurd. I’d rather have Palin in the VP role than Obama in the P role. Also, his comments are called age discrimination — I’m sure if it were something important like, oh, roles in Hollywood for aging actors, Matt Damon would be all over it saying “oh, age doesn’t matter!”.

  45. Matt is an idiot.

    So funny when celebs think they know something.

    Guess he doesn’t know that once the conservatives know his is a liberal they won’t go to his movies.

    Yup folks, thats how it really works

    Palin has more experience than Obama, if you don’t want a woman in office say that. Senators, especially freshman senators are not equipped to rule the country, everything else aside.

  50. Rob

    @92

    That’s the longest list of nothing I have ever seen congrats.

    He’s been a senator 2 years and absent most of it.

    McCain… Landslide ’08.

    Democrats are obviously fucktarded if all they can muster is nobody from their crowd. Pretty damn pathetic. Hopefully we see the end of them. Shoulda been the end of them during the civil war as they were the pro slavery group hence the birth of the republican party. Glad to see the dem’s haven’t lost their roots in still using minorities for their own political gains. Like a horse been led by a carrot on a stick. They think so lowly of minorities that they constantly rehash them as a charity case every election and people wonder why there’s still racial tensions in this country. Cuz idiots vote dem keeping it alive.
