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.

    Governor Palin has no experience? And Obama has…organized a community? I set up neighborhood wiffle ball games when I was a kid and our cul-de-sac had a garage sale last summer. Guess i’m a community organizer too! RYAN FOR PRESIDENT!!!

  2. Dogless

    @120 – Alaska has a smaller population that San Francisco. Land mass doesn’t count for shit if no ones living there.

    Does that mean you think Gavin Newsom is qualified to run for office after 4 years of running a city that, in 2007, made $8.2 billion dollars in tourism alone, without even touching any oil?

    Nah, I didn’t think so, you dumb-fuck, backwards-thinking troll.

  3. fact

    During her short political career to this point, Sarah Palin has been one of the most successful pork-barrel politicians in the country, in terms of the total amount of ear-marked funds per capita. That’s not a partisan accusation, it’s a statement of fact.

    #139 – and, she didn’t write the convention speech.

    But, nice boobs!

  5. jzz

    All Sarah Palin supporters are cunts and fags.

    Also this goes out to #92 aka SmartandCute2Boot:

    I will make this simple, which your not likely to fathom, or then again maybe you will appreciate.

    1.) I can tell you like to overcompensate for your feelings of inadequacy by making lame attempts of impressing others, on a celeb blog mind you with tiring data you copied and pasted. Honey people on celeb blogs are statstically less intelligent than the average consumer from a political blog. BTW, I am slumming. This is not my ususal hang out.

    2.)Your name is ridiculous and smacks of desperation and arrogance, overall security (sound familiar). The name you chose is probably vastly untrue as you are neither as smart or as cute as you fancy yourself.

    3.) For a concise and easy to interpret voting record check out . It. is concise and targets main issues (no, #92, it does not address the naming of post offices as that is not considered important). However, it is more user friednly than the Christmas list you posted and gives the source of the information.

    4. You name should be:
    A.) I don’t have a life so I post a bunch of junk
    B.) I post crap nobody can make sense of in the name of sounding smart
    C.) Fun with copy and paste

  7. Cait

    All this talk about how unqualified Sarah Palin is, and Obama is even LESS qualified as her. I guess he’d make an even better president, huh? Ridiculous.

  8. KO

    Speaking of retarded, all of these people who say she has more experience than Obama? That’s RETARDED. Look at their careers. Looks at who has served the public long and had more experience on a national level. Look at who has had a fucking passport for more than a year. Look at the fact that she’s lying her ass off about being a maverick and fighting lobbyists and pork-barrel spending. She has no business being second in line to run my country. Matt Damon can say what he wants…he can speak for me, since I don’t have a tv crew waiting around to hear what I have to say.

  9. RJ

    I’m not a Mat Damon fan, but he’s dead on. The right wing whackos must be deranged to think this PTA mom is ready to potentially lead this country. I love the fact that no one knew about her until 2 weeks ago. I’d like to see her in the Middle East or Afghanistan giving those Muslims her Hocky Mom mantra.

  10. # 156 Cute.

    And what exactly does Matt Damon know about Barack Obama? What I know is although he and his wife have been a success in America, they are not proud of their country. I know he associates with racist Pastors – Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger. In fact, they are mentors. I know he had a chance to endorse a candidate that would have removed the dirty politicians in Cook County but he didn’t because they have contributed to his political campaign. I know he has benefited from the Chicago machine. I know he’s associated with Bill Ayers. I know Barack Obama got a sweet deal on his house the same day Tony Rezko paid full price for the empty lot next door. I know he assisted Tony Rezko get milions of dollars of deals from the government. I know Al-Mansour, an advisor to Saudi prince and a racist, helped him get on the Harvard Law Review. These aren’t just tangential relationships. Emil Jones has said that he created this US Senator- how else did Barack Obama take credit for the legistation during his last year in the State Senate of Illinois. His whole life he’s been running for office. In fact, he’s been running for office the last 59 of 112 months. That’s what I know about Obama – That’s SCARY to me.

  12. Mark

    Matt Damon another left wing retard that doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground.

  13. Patrick

    Thank god a celebrity has come forward to tell me how to think. I was worried because I didn’t know what to do. No Hollywood celeb was coming out to speak their mind on this matter.

    I feel much better now, thank you Matt for telling me how you feel. Now I know what to think about this election!

  14. Elissa

    Ah, the oh so scholared in politics actor doesn’t think a little ole’ woman can run the office.

    So how well is it going to run when Obama gets murdered and we have another 70 year old man in office?

  15. Cait

    All this talk about how unqualified Sarah Palin is, and Obama is even LESS qualified than she is. I guess he’d make an even better president, huh? Ridiculous.

    #156…1) Nice grammar there, buddy. 2) Nice condescending tone as well. Sorry you have to slum it with the rest of us lowlifes. As your moniker suggests, you really are “Lipstick on a Pig”.

  17. HA HA as opposed to a muslim porch Monkey in the white house!

  19. minerva

    @156: Does her name really matter or was it because it spells out everything you probably you feel when you look at in the mirror…
    “BTW, I am slumming. This is not my ususal hang out.” I’m sure it isn’t, you must be hanging out with great minds right? Please enlighten us with all your great wisdom…
    @92: Next time make sure the copypasta is not that long because it really turns off a person when you have to scroll 5 times to read a comment… I just looked at it, it was ridiculous…
    @145-150: Hmmm… sorry I’m engaged already :P

  20. RJ

    I’d take a guy who went to Harvard School, worked at a law firm, worked in the Illinois State Senate for 8 years, and then a US Senator for another 3 + years, and has campaigned for the past 2 years to be President over some girl who went to 5 schools before graduating from some school in Idaho, was head of the PTA in her small town, Mayor of a poduck city in AK (population approx 8,000), and then governor of Alaska (for less than two years and state pop. is approc 700,000 people)…ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.

  21. minerva

    Let’s talk about more important matters. I’m getting krunk!! Who’s going to join me?!?!?!

  22. Frank

    Reading these posts made my I.Q. drop 10 points. Has anyone heard of cross-referencing facts or finding reputable sources?

    One thought on the concerns of McCain’s potential death in office: Harry S. Truman was V.P. for 3 months before becoming President and brought no legislative or executive experience to the table. He is now considered one of the top 10 presidents in U.S. history (1,2).

    Note, I’m not supporting any party this election, though I generally support liberal policies. I do support intelligent comments though, even on fluff forums.


  23. RJ

    #161…By the way, Barack’s wife said that in her speech which was taken out of context and she has corrected herself to clear it up. If you didn’t spend so much time bible thumping you might figure that out. By the way, did you know Palin was on a commission to secede Alaska from the Union? Did you know she thinks it’s God’s will to have a pipeline in AK? Did you know her pastor said Jews deserve what they get in the Middle East? You can spin it however you want, but stop letting your clergy molest you and get some fresh air.

  24. pg

    Matt Damon for the Win.

  27. Assholes!

    Palin is NOT running for president.
    Its hilarious how liberals are comparing her (the VP candidate,) to to oBama the PC because oBama does not have the expeience to hold John MCcains coat!.

  28. minerva

    @175 (a.k.a Frank) Oh I’m definitely voting you for president now hahaha

  29. Gr8 points all Bill Clinton.

  32. freaksloan

    You know Matt, Shut the FUCK UP. Who cares what you think? You are dumb fucking ACTOR. So shut the fuck up and just act. You are paid to entertain me and nothing else.

    Any person who would make their voting choice on what an actor says should be banned from voting.

    I think you should have to take an IQ test before you cast your vote. Stupid people should not be allowed to vote.

  33. So SATAN – I knew you usually show up about now. Inside job ?

  34. Fuck you asshole – Matt. Fucking liberal mouthed, uninformed, social retard. You continue to show your IQ and why no one cares about what you think – other than to tell what an ass you are.

  35. Cheers # 181 – it’s a jungle out there. x

  36. The Truth

    Read about Palin’s drug addict son and slutty daughter:

  37. andrew

    The same people who don’t know why they hate Palin are the same people that don’t know why the love Barack. You friggin retarded idealogues. I don’t like Palin either but I hope she and McCain win just to piss you libs off.

  38. Amy

    Matt Damon is right. We don’t know Sarah Palin, and we are giving her one of the most important jobs in the world. Vice president of the United States is huge! She is a massive gamble. This is not Hollywood, this is real life. Wake Up People!!!

  39. #186 -188 I’m still having a few problems with free fall collapse speed .
    Comments ?

  40. Christina

    Why do people assume you’re voting for Obama if you say anything against McCain???

    I am a Ron Paul supporter and will vote for the Libertarian Party candidate Bob Barr.
    I also think McCain choosing this woman over more qualified candidates for VP such as Romney shows his poor judgement which we as a nation cannot afford after the last 8 years.

    Smart&Cute2Boot #92

    Yeah sure, your smart and cute alright. Your probably some Birkenstock, Subaru driving, Global Warming, Tofu eating, Clam Banging, Bio-Genetic misfire with a hard on for the facts in your twisted Liberal mindset.

    Take a look at some hard facts about your boy Obama. Yeah I know..Its all Bull $hit right..Standard Liberal answer to anybody whose not in lock step with your Liberal socialist views.

    1.) Selma Got Me Born – NOT EXACTLY, your parents felt safe enough to have you in 1961 – Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965. (Google ‘Obama Selma’ for his full March 4, 2007 speech and articles about its various untruths.)

    2.) Father Was A Goat Herder – NOT EXACTLY, he was a privileged, well-educated youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.

    3.) Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter – NOT EXACTLY, he was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had.

    4.) My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom – NOT EXACTLY, your cousin Raila Odinga has created mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate election in 2007, in Kenya. It is the first widespread violence in decades. The current government is pro-American but Odinga wants to overthrow it and establish Muslim Sharia law. Your half-brother, Abongo Obama, is Odinga’s follower. You interrupted your New Hampshire campaigning to speak to Odinga on the phone.

    Obama’s cousin Odinga in Kenya ran for president and tried to get Sharia Muslim law in place there. When Odinga lost the elections, his followers have burned Christians’ homes and then burned men, women and children alive in a Christian church where they took shelter. Obama SUPPORTED his cousin before the election process here started. Google Obama and Odinga and see what you get. No one wants to know the truth.

    5.) My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian – NOT EXACTLY, she does her daily Salat prayers at 5 AM, according to her own interviews. Not to mention, Christianity wouldn’t allow her to have been one of 14 wives to 1 man.

    6.) My Name is African Swahili – NOT EXACTLY, your name is Arabic and ‘Baraka’ (from which Barack came) means ‘blessed’ in that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama. Barack Hussein Obama is not half black. If elected, he would be the first Arab-American President, not the first black President. Barack Hussein Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother’s side and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro from his father’s side. While Barack Hussein Obama’s father was from Kenya, his father’s family was mainly Arabs. Barack Hussein Obama’s father was only 12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab (his father’s birth certificate even states he’s Arab, not African Negro).
    From and for more…. go to…,only6.2525_African

    7.) I Never Practiced Islam – NOT EXACTLY, you practiced it daily at
    school, where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years, until your wife made you change, so you could run for office.

    8.) My School In Indonesia Was Christian – NOT EXACTLY, you were
    registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check your own book). February 28, 2008. Kristoff from the New York Times a year ago: Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’ This is just one example of what Pamela is talking about when she says ‘Obama’s narrative is being altered, enhanced and manipulated to whitewash troubling facts.’

    9.) I Was Fluent In Indonesian – NOT EXACTLY, not one teacher says you could speak the language.
    10.) Because I Lived In Indonesia, I Have More Foreign Experience – NOT EXACTLY, you were there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn’t even speak the language. What did you learn, how to study the Koran and watch cartoons.

    11.) I Am Stronger On Foreign Affairs – NOT EXACTLY, except for Africa (surprise) and the Middle East (bigger surprise), you have never been anywhere else on the planet and thus have NO experience with our closest allies.

    12.) I Blame My Early Drug Use On Ethnic Confusion – NOT EXACTLY, you were quite content in high school to be Barry Obama, no mention of Kenya and no mention of struggle to identify – your classmates said you were just fine.

    13.) An Ebony Article Moved Me To Run For Office – NOT EXACTLY, Ebony has yet to find the article you mention in your book. It doesn’t, and never did, exist.

    14.) A Life Magazine Article Changed My Outlook On Life – NOT EXACTLY, Life has yet to find the article you mention in your book. It doesn’t, and never did, exist.

    15.) I Won’t Run On A National Ticket In ’08 – NOT EXACTLY, here you are, despite saying, live on TV, that you would not have enough experience by then, and you are all about having experience first.

    16.) Voting ‘Present’ is Common In Illinois Senate – NOT EXACTLY, they are common for YOU, but not many others have 130 NO VOTES.

    lecturer ON LEAVE.

    20.) Without Me, There Would Be No Ethics Bill – NOT EXACTLY, you didn’t write it, introduce it, change it, or create it.

    21.) The Ethics Bill Was Hard To Pass – NOT EXACTLY, it took just 14 days from start to finish.

    22.) I Wrote A Tough Nuclear Bill – NOT EXACTLY, your bill was rejected by your own party for its pandering and lack of all regulation – mainly because of your Nuclear donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.

    23.) I Have Released My State Records – NOT EXACTLY, as of March, 2008, state bills you sponsored d or voted for have yet to be released, exposing all the special interests pork hidden within.

    26.) I Have Been A Bold Leader In Illinois – NOT EXACTLY, even your own supporters claim to have not seen BOLD action on your part.

    27.) I Passed 26 Of My Own Bills In One Year – NOT EXACTLY, they were not YOUR bills, but rather handed to you, after their creation by a fellow Senator, to assist you in a future bid for higher office.

    28.) No One on my campaign-contacted Canada about NAFTA – NOT EXACTLY, the Canadian Government issued the names and a memo of the conversation your campaign had with them.

    29.) I Am Tough On Terrorism – NOT EXACTLY, you missed the Iran Resolution vote on terrorism and your good friend Ali Abunimah supports the destruction off Israel.

    30.) I Want All Votes To Count – NOT EXACTLY, you said let the delegates decide.

    31.) I Want Americans To Decide – NOT EXACTLY, you prefer caucuses that limit the vote, confuse the voters, force a public vote, and only operate during small windows of time.
