Admirers say Sarah Palin's compelling narrative and working-mom credentials helped land her a spot on the Republican presidential ticket, but Hollywood star and Obama supporter Matt Damon said Monday the Alaska governor's story more resembles a "really bad Disney movie."


In a blunt interview with the Associated Press (http://www.breitbart.tv/html/171553.html), the star of the Jason Bourne film series also said there was a good chance John McCain would die in his first term in office and the thought of a President Palin is "terrifying."


“It’s like a really bad Disney movie — the hockey mom…from Alaska, and she’s the president, and it’s like she’s facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. And it’s absurd, it’s totally absurd, and I don't understand why people aren’t talking about how absurd it is," Damon said.http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/

Aint America great? A one character actor gets to have an opinion on politics promoted by the media as real news. Find that in Cuba or Venezuela or Iran.

If a CON said anything close to what he said here they would be dragged through the mud a sexists and elitist. I some how doubt the same will even come close to happening to him. I love his acting, but any hockey mom is more qualified IMO to have an opinion on politics over him.

No, no guys he is right. I love to have lawyer after lawyer after lawyer after lawyer after lawyer to choose from on the Democratic side.

How long has it been since they nominated ANYONE that ran anything other than after ambulances?

We managed to survive eight years of one dumb redneck....I think we could survive a couple years of another. Its probably what all the hicks want anyways....that should be their new slogan. "There is a good chance this woman becomes the president: Vote McCain"

I am never a fan of celebrity politics, but he does have a point. Does she really think there were dinosaurs 4000 years ago?

Umm why don't you want to know that about Obama as well, he's a Christian no? Why didn't the movie star want to know that about Obama?

At least with him I can understand, he doesn't make any bones about it, he's a LIB.

Because Obama is a Christian, but not a fundamentalist. :rolleyes: He's a supporter of science. Mainstream Christians denounce creationism as did the late Pope John Paul II.

The leader of the Catholic church denounced creationism? I've never heard of such a thing.

As far as I know to be a Christian you have to believe in God and the Bible.

This is a fallacy called false dichotomy. There's nothing stopping one from believing in evolution and Jesus. Nice try though to spin it.

Very true. Here is a funny fundamentalist op-ed on it.

While Obama, McCain, and Biden are all Christians, none of them have ever said anything to make me think that they were fundamentalists. Palin, however, is one.

You are right. There is nothing stopping anyone from believing in evolution and Jesus. Nothing at all.

Just don't try to explain both in harmony with one another either.

The theistic evolutionists have been throughly debunked some time ago.

But that doesn't stop people from believing it.

McCain is a secularist... I know what he says now... but I have never heard anything about him and religion... i always heard the opposite... that he was not into organized religion...

How can adherents to one theory with no absolute proof debunk adhernets to another theory with no absolute proof?

How can adherents to one theory with no absolute proof debunk adhernets to another theory with no absolute proof?That isn't the issue. That is for the religion forum, again.

The issue is the attempt to blend the two together.

And I guess that is your answer as well.

Seems like if you are going to be curious about Palin as an IND thinker you sould want to know where Obama stands on this issue since he says he is a Christian.

He has already said in interviews that the science classroom should teach scientific theories, not promoting religious ideas.

So "Will Hunting" is a left winger, what a shocker, he does hail from the peoples republic of Massachussets.

Christians believe in the bible. Everything we know of Jesus we learn from the bible. Jesus affirmed the bible, especially the OT. The bible teaches creationism. Can't separate the two.

I hope the question comes up because it will expose him for what he isn't.

And I would be very interested in Mr McCains answers just as much, because I think he is evasive on these issues.

I think we can deduce that one. The lady was a member of the pentecostal church. You don't find many evangelicals crazier than those guys.

McCain said he believed in evolution, but that it's good's handiwork. Is he not a real Christian? Is it fundie or bust for Christianity?


The bible also promotes geocentricism. Are you not a Christian if you believe the Earth revolves around the Sun?

The bible also promotes geocentricism. Are you not a Christian if you believe the Earth revolves around the Sun?Another misguided group. And there are many misguided cults and spinoffs from the Bible. So no need to list them in your next post.

I am not going to say if people are saved or not. That is up to God. But Jesus does tell us that we will know them by their fruits. We will know them by what they say, and what they do, and what they say about Him and the bible.

All I can conclude by this is - if one is following the core beliefs of Christianity by their deeds, their words and their actions.

And I will keep my conclusions to myself.

I don't recall him ever saying that he didn't believe in creationism... I recall him saying something about evolution... Despite some opinions, I know a lot of people that believe that God created evolution... God created, and by design, it evolved... I'm just clarifying here, on something I didn't hear...
