I liked Matt Damon even before this, but now I am definitely going to see any movie he is in:
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 going to know anything about her. I know 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 term sof governance it’s a disaster. You do the actuary tables there’s a one out of three chance, if not more, that McCain does not survive his first term, and then it’s President Palin. It’s like a really bad Disney movie. The hockey mom, “Oh, I’m just the hockey mom from Alaska!” and she’s the President, and it’s like she’s facing down Vladimir Putin using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. It’s absurd. It’s totally absurd and I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about how absurd it is.
It’s really terrifying possibility. The fact that we’ve gotten this far, and we’re that close to this becoming a reality is crazy. I need to know is she really thinks dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago. That’s an important — I want to know that, I really do. Because she’s going to have the nuclear codes. I want to know is she thinks dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago, or if she banned books or tried to ban books. We can’t have that.
