Matt Damon, perhaps in a bout of Clooney-envy, goes after Palin.
“It’s like a really bad Disney movie. The hockey mom… and she’s president and facing down [Russian president] Vladimir Putin,” Damon said. “It’s absurd. It’s totally absurd and I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about it.”
Damon also suggested McCain’s selection of Palin wasn’t based on her political qualifications.
“I know she was the mayor of a really small town. She’s the Governor of Alaska for less than two years. I just don’t understand it. I think the pick was made for political purposes, but in terms of governance, it’s a disaster,” he added. “I need to know if she really thinks that dinosaurs were really here 4,000 years ago. I want to know that. Because she’s going to have the nuclear codes. I want to know that and I want to know if she tried to ban books. We can’t have that.”
I guess the Palin is a creationist thing is just going to endure like J. Edgar Hoover was a cross-dresser, and for the same reason; too many people just want it to be true.
