Going Nuclear

posted by on September 10 at 15:01 PM

Matt Damon on a President Palin:

It’s like a really bad Disney movie. The hockey mom, you know, ‘Oh, I’m just a hockey mom’… and she’s facing down Vladimir Putin… It’s totally absurd… it’s a really terrifying possibility. I mean, I need to know if she really thinks dinosaurs were here 4,000 years ago. I wanna know that … because she’s gonna have the nuclear codes.

Yes, it will start like a Disney movie but end like something directed by George Romero.

Where is Christopher Walken when you need him?

Here's hoping Matt Damon still curries favor with working white women.

This certianly won't feed the Obama is an out-of-touch celebrity meme at all.

It's too bad he seemed to reference the "fake" quote, because he's basically right, but the news is having a field day with those fake ones. I actually saw a CNN story yesterday that "debunked" myths about Palin. The "lizards of Satan" quote, sure. But then they dismissed the "book banning" episode as a false myth, because, you know, no books were actually banned. She tried to get them banned, the librarian refused, and somehow that's a debunked myth??? Doesn't it matter that she fucking TRIED? There's going to be a lot more screaming at the TV for the next two months I'm afraid...

Why is it that everyone who asks Palin to clarify her positions gets such a bad rap?

Cute and smart! I knew I was maintaining a girlish and rather embarrassing crush on him for a reason. Le sigh.

I finally figured out who Sarah Palin reminds me of. Does anyone else remember "Barb from Minnesota" on Mad TV?

Not Disney - Kubrick! And the movie was already made. How did that end ????????????????

Hm, I can just see the titles now:

"Disney's Honey, I Blew Up The Middle East!"

"Disney's The Veep"

"Disney's High School Election"

And of course

"Disney's Beauty & The Beast"

Hey, can we get Christopher Walken to debate Ms. Palin?

Now I would PAY for that, provided it was broadcast, live, and uncensored, on TeeVee.

Moderated by Amy Goodman. heh.

@11 - Visit this Gary Larson site, and you will see what Sarah Palin might look like in ten years as she waxes both religiously and politically about 2008. Scroll down to the first cartoon.
