Waiting for a celebrity to chime in and speak their mind on Sarah Palin? Well, wait no longer.
Today, Matt Damon took the first walk down the celebrity pundit carpet since Palin debuted a couple of weeks ago. In a video sit-down with the Associated Press, he criticizes the McCain pick as a “purely political” decision, citing Palin’s lack of experience as reason to be afraid. “You do the actuary tables and there is a 1 out of 3 chance, if not more, McCain doesn’t survive his first term and it’ll be President Palin … it’s like a really bad Disney Movie. The hockey mom, ‘Oh, I’m just a hockey mom from Alaska’ and she’s the president.”
We here at Patrol imagine some pretty amazing plotlines beign tossed around. Trading Places of the Alaskan Frontier, where we trade Eddie Murphy for a huntress mother out her league but she makes it with pluck, determination and a gun rack aboard Air Force 1. Picture Jimmy Stewart, but with better legs and hair.
What would we do without movie stars passing down their wisdom and intelligence to us? Lets do away with the electoral college and just have Hollywood A-list decide things. That would surely mix things up. We’d see alot more of McCain in Gucci, hanging out with Ryan Seacrest and being a whole lot sexier.
