Damon is one of those rare Hollywood actors that really did graduate from high school. Okay that isn't what makes him an idiot. What makes Damon an idiot is that he is an idiot. Too simplistic? Well when it comes to Matty Damon simplistic should suffice. But I will be glad to expound.
What makes Matt a real idiot is this from last year's election:
I think there's a really good chance that Sarah Palin could be president, and I think that's a really scary thing. Because I don't know anything about her. I don't think in eight weeks I'm gonna know anything about her. I know that she was a mayor of a really, really small town, and she's governor of Alaska for less than two years. I just don't understand - I think the pick was made for political purposes, but in terms of governance, it's a disaster. You do the actuary tables, you know, 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. And it really, you know, was talking about it earlier, it's like a really bad Disney movie. You know, the hockey mom, you know, "I'm just a hockey mom from Alaska," and she's the president. And it's like she's facing down Vladimir Putin and you know, using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink, you know, it's just absurd. It's totally absurd, and I don't understand why more people aren't talking about how absurd it is. I...it's a really terrifying possibility. The fact that we've gotten this far and we're that close to this being a reality is crazy. Crazy. I mean, did she really - I need to know if she really thinks dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago. That's an important - I want to know that. I really do. Because she's gonna have the nuclear codes. You know, I wanna know if she thinks dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago, or if she banned books or tried to ban books. I mean, you know, we can't have that.
I have a question. What does believing in a young earth have to do with holding the nuclear codes? Seriously. What correlation is Damon trying to draw? That if you believe that the earth is less than 10,000 years old then you are going to push the button as president for no reason? This guy is an idiot.
Damon then raises the spectrum of Palin's banning books, an accusation leveled at her shortly after she was named John McCain's running mate. Ask Matt in private what he thinks should be done with books written by Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, or Sean Hannity. Interesting how these morons are so pro free speech until it is speech they disagree with.
I also love the way Damon speaks as if it was a foregone conclusion that McCain was going to die, and that Palin would ascend to the presidency.
You do the actuary tables, you know, 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.
33% chance according to actuarial tables. Remember, those do not take into account the health care that is given to a sitting president. The truth is that if you factor all factors in (not to mention what McCain had already survived in his life up to this point), the chance that McCain would die in 4 years was much less than 33%.
Of course, a brainiac like Damon doesn't care about facts. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a guy that attended Harvard and quit 12 credits shy of a degree. 12 credits. 3 classes. ARE YOU SERIOUS? That is like having a lead in the fourth quarter of the Superbowl, with 2 minutes left, and forfeiting! Yet this guy has the gall to question someone else's intelligence?
Why would Damon speak as if President Palin was a foregone conclusion? Simple. The politics of fear. He was playing the fear card. Scare people away from the McCain/Palin ticket, and get people, out of fear, to vote for Obama/Biden. Ahh yes, the liberals that bad mouthed Bush for scaring people into supporting two wars are happy to play the fear card themselves whenever it is convenient.
Damon also loves to try to throw out a big word or two to try to make himself sound more intelligent. "Actuary tables." Never mind that the proper term is 'actuarial tables'. Please. Matt, just because you played a genius in one of your movies doesn't mean you are one in real life.
But my favorite part is this:
I think there's a really good chance that Sarah Palin could be president, and I think that's a really scary thing. Because I don't know anything about her. I don't think in eight weeks I'm gonna know anything about her.
Hello! Barack Obama anyone? No one knew much about Obama, still do not know much about Obama, but ol' Matt here ran happily to the polls to cast his vote for Obama, and all without knowing much about him. Funny how he has no problem putting a label on one person, and to completely ignore the same qualities of another. The double standard is off the chart.
So Matt gets the idiot label for making, well, an idiot of himself. I can't wait until 2012 to hear more nuggets of wisdom from a guy that can't go more than 10 minutes of any movie he is in without using the F-word. Yeah, he is a real voice of moral clarity.
