Sarah Palin is "really terrifying" Matt Damon


Actor Matt Damon is totally freaked out that John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate.  

At 72, McCain is no spring chicken. Damon fears that if McCain wins the presidency, he'll kick the bucket while in office and Palin will become president. "You do the actuary tables and there's a one-out-of-three chance, if not more, that McCain doesn't survive his first term and it will be President Palin . . . It's like a bad Disney movie," he said. 

Why would the Disney movie be so bad?  According to Damon, Palin is wholly unqualified to lead the country.  " 'I'm just a hockey mom from Alaska.' And she's the president," he said. "And it's like she's facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. It's absurd. It's totally absurd."

He continued, "I don't know why more people aren't talking about how absurd it is. It's a really terrifying possibility,"

A Democat and Barack Obama supporter, Damon contributed $4,600 to Obama's campaign and $28,500 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Matt Damon may be cute, but typical of an Obamazombie (yes, I've coined a new term), he's ignorantly lashing out. Until just before the DNC I hadn't heard of Biden, so as far as I'm concerned, I've got about the same amount of time to learn about each of the VP options. It's crazy to me that Obamazombies use the same arguments against Palin that the Republicans were using against Obama (dynamic speaker, cool person, not enough experience), yet they don't see the irony is dishing out these critiques. Let's summarize: Dem: Dynamic, history-making bi-racial Obama and experienced long-time politician Biden vs. Rep: Experienced long-time politician McCain and dynamic, history-making female Palin. Let's please get past the superficial and look at what these people really stand for, believe in, and DO. Happy Voting!:)

Ford, who had been vice-president under Richard Nixon, served as the commander-in-chief only after Nixon resigned in 1974.Two years later, Ford was on the campaign trail, working for a second term. But at the 1974 Republican convention in Kansas City, Missouri, his predecessor was absent from speeches, photos and literature. The BBC's David Dimbleby reported on the glaring absence of all things Nixon.Richard Nixon had once been such a popular figure that he won 49 states in his re-election campaign. But the pall of Watergate and Nixon's collusion in dirty tricks, espionage and sabotage made him off-topic as the Republicans tried to retain the White House - and regain their dignity. In the end, it was Democratic challenger Jimmy Carter who won the election. Four years later, then-incumbent President Jimmy Carter didn't just lose to Republican challenger Ronald Regan - he lost big. Carter, hampered by the Iran hostage crisis and saddled with a poor economic record, won only 49 electoral votes (out of 538). He gave his concession speech even before polls had closed on the West Coast.In reporting on this loss, the BBC's Martin Bell previewed what was expected from Reagan, a relative newcomer to national and international politics, when he took office. Unlike the liberal Carter, who emphasised environmentalism and poverty issues, Reagan's conservative credentials seemed.
