OPINION - Matt Damon takes aim at Palin

Check out this excerpt from AP:

Maybe I didn't write it, but it speaks to me like I did.

Actor Matt Damon has lashed out at U.S. Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin - insisting she's been chosen for "political purposes".

Damon fears Palin's running-mate John McCain won't survive a full four-year-term as president at age 72, and claims the Alaskan governor taking over would be disastrous.He says, "I think there's a really good chance Sarah Palin could become president, and I think that's a really scary thing. It's like a really bad Disney movie, the hockey mom, you know, 'Oh, I'm just a hockey mom from Alaska'... and she's facing down (former Russian) President (Vladimir) Putin...

It's totally absurd... It's a really terrifying possibility."And Damon takes issue with Palin's take on the creation: "I need to know if she thinks dinosaurs were here (on earth) 4,000 years ago, I really do - because she's gonna have the nuclear codes."

Yeah, I saw this. He's totally right, and the fact that she's being so stingy with interviews makes it even worse.

I've never understood why being educated, or being "elite" is such a bad thing when running for President. They're going to be the leader of the free world, they should be creme de la creme.

Here's the video quoted in the OP.

I totally agree!!

I will soon be posting a Rant on my website about the double speak from notable Republican supporters. It is based a piece seen on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart". Here is the link:

It terrifies me that she could be President! It is not her being a woman, it is what she thinks.
