Matt Damon wants to know some things about Sarah Palin.

matt damon and sarah palin 6 Things Matt Damon Wants to Know about Sarah Palin and Dinosaurs

1. Does Sarah Palin think there were dinosaurs here 4,000 years ago?

2. Can Sarah Palin use her folksy charm to face down Vladmir Putin?

3. Does Sarah Palin know how absurd she sounds? (look who’s talking)

4. Can Sarah Palin handle the nuclear codes?

5. Does Sarah Palin know he is afraid of her becoming president?

6. Sarah Palin realizes he thinks she might be the president pretty soon?

Wait a sec. The guy knows something about John McCain’s intentions that the rest of us don’t?

Does he know that Sarah Palin couldn’t give a hoot or a holler about what Matt Damon wants to know? When the Hollywood knuckleheads have to weigh in to help out the Democrats, you know the Dems are hurting. Obama? Is that the best you can do?

What I want to know, is what does Sarah Palin think about the environment? Not what she thinks about 4,000 years ago. I want to know what Obama thinks about the environment. The best we can get out of him is, “What do you want me to think?” Or “What does Sarah Palin think? I’ll think differently.”

Damon … your movies are good, but your opinions on politics are meaningless.

    I would like to know how you think his opinions are meaningless…after-all, he IS a citizen of this country and he IS going to be voting. You’re putting a bias against him because of his career choice? That makes no sense. He may be rich, he may be a big player in Hollywood, but that does not mean he is meaningless.

    Bill,

    Not only are Damon’s opinions on politics meaningless, they are inaccurate.

    Matt Damon says if you look up the actuarial tables there is a one in three chance that McCain will die within the next four years.

    Damon then boldly challenges us to “do the actuarial tables”.

    Well, I did…and Damon is off…WAY off.

    The actuarial tables supplied by the U.S. government indicate a one in seven chance, NOT a one in three chance.

    Take a look at http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/STATS/table4c6.html

    If you add up the four years for males from ages 72 to 75 you get 0.151985 which translates to about 1/7th or one in 7.

    Dude, Matt Damon’s opinions are no less meaningless than yours. Is a 72-year-old re-tread and a hockey mom the best the GOP can do?

  • JP / September 11, 2008 at 3:09 pm

    You’re a dummy Kondaks. You don’t add up the percentages. The probability of dying within a year for a 72 year old is around 33%. It is higher for the 73-75 year olds!

  • InnKeeper / September 11, 2008 at 7:30 pm

    There is a 66% chance that he won’t. Talk about glass half empty or full. You are giving in to the glass in 2/3 full, and you still see a negative.

    The net and blogs has brought political debate to: pick a side and start throwing mudballs. Sad.

    I can’t wait for people to mature into the power of the net as a great equalizer of power. Maybe start real debate, real graphs, real numbers, real ideas, instead of this immature spitball contest.

    Go McCain/Palin – Take Back America, elitist politicians beware. Clean up America from the government out.

    A RESPONSE TO ACTOR MATT DAMON …

    MATT …

    Everyone knows that you and Ben Afflick have been in the tank for Obama, way before Palin even entered the campaign.

    You’re just an actor. Your lines are written for you, just like a speech writer creates the lines for Obama. A director tells you what to do each moment . Make-up people and costurme designers work on your appearance. Other than that, you’re just like anybody else, except you seem to think that since you’re
    a manufactured celebrity, your opinion means more, but it doesn’t.

    QUESTION:
    IS PALIN QUALIFIED COMPARED TO OBAMA ?

    ANSWER:
    http://townhall.com/blog/g/cba8713c-ef73-4ebc-aa5e-bc53e6596e2a&comments=true

    Once again … if you compare McCain/Palin’s track record with Obama/Biden’s, it’s no contest. McCain/Palin are a hundred times more qualified to lead this country. McCain/Palin show scores of actual achievements and solid service to America, while once again, Obama’s track record is one of excessive absences from his responsibilities, and all talk with no actual experience, or contributions to America.
    Like Governor Palin has pointed out … Obama had the time to write two memoirs, but never wrote one piece of significant legislation … not even when he was in the state legislature. Regarding earmarks, and the economy … If Obama gets elected, his irresponsible and clueless ideas for shifting America’s wealth would turn the U.S.A. into a third world country, with businesses laying off employees to keep their doors open. Obama’s ideas for national security would de-fang America and make us weak, putting us at the mercy of the world’s tyrants

    Matt Damon. Really idiotic, small person. Hasn’t a clue about much of anything. Batting for Obama. Pathetic. Damon is an ACTOR, people. They PERFORM on stage and in studio. He’s a highly paid, under talented, ignoramus who couldn’t formulate an original thought if his life depended on it. Sorry, it’s not pathetic, it’s sad…

    This blog is a perfect example of why technology ought not to fall into the hands of Republican supporters. Republicans are full of assumptions and lies.

    What is Obama’s view on the environment??? Maybe you should ask your super old friend McCain or your Alaskan hockey mom Palin, they’re the ones that don’t give a shit about the environment or habitants, ie. Alaskan pipeline.

    Republican’s are exactly what this world needs to rid itself of…f’ing parasites!

  • frank / September 14, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    The mercy of the worlds tyrants?

    Isn’t that us?

  • sam / September 14, 2008 at 11:22 pm

    Gina (and Lieberman):

    A “stronger resume” generally doesn’t mean 1 1/2 years in state government as opposed to 11 1/2 years in state and federal government. Biden alone has more experience than both of his opponents combined, so you should really put the experience argument to rest. Biden and Obama have a combined 47-year history in state and national government, compared to the 27 years McCain and Palin have had.

  • CoolWilly95 / September 18, 2008 at 9:02 am

    Tony Kondaks,

    The 1 in 3 or 1 in 4 is correct, because you didn’t figure in the fact that McCain has had cancer 4 times so far.

  • CoolWilly95 / September 18, 2008 at 9:05 am

    Miguelito,

    Not sure if you know this, but Damon went to Harvard, so he is hardly a dumb person. I also think he is quite capable of thinking and coming up with original ideas.

  • Charlie / September 21, 2008 at 12:56 pm

    There is a variable that you are forgetting when calculating McCain’s chances of falling over dead. The toll that being tortured (mentally and physically) and malnourished for five years takes on the human body is impossible to quantify, but we can safely assume that it won’t be helping him live longer. If there is a 1 in 3 chance of a normal guy his age dying, then you’ve got to think his chances are much greater, especially when you add the stress of being President on top of that.

    Hey Miguelito, for the record, Matt Damon is “off-the-charts” smart. This isn’t my opinion from reading US Weekly, I happen to know the guy, so you can say what you want about his opinions, but you just end up looking stupid when you question his intelligence. As for having an original thought, please let us know when you have one. We’re all dying to know what your take on the economy is. As a Republican you were probably a big fan of Ronald Reagan, right? Do you remember what his day job was way back before he became President? Oh yeah, he was one of those guys who performs on stage and in studio.

    I think I’ve figured out where Sarah Palin got her education on dinosaurs. Remember that scene in “Airplane!” where the guy in the control tower says “Well first the Earth cooled, and then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat so they died and turned into oil. And then the Arabs came, and they bought Mercedes Benz’s. And then Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di’s clothing…” That’s it!!!! Our potential future VP got her history lessons from the Zucker brothers. I can just see her at an OPEC Summit asking King Fahd what type of dinosaurs lived in Saudi Arabia.

    Is it too much to ask that we put someone in office that is smarter than the rest of us, and doesn’t have to run everything by the invisible man in the sky first?
