Matt Damon; Love Your Movies, But You're An Idiot

In America, funny, Obama, Sarah Palin on March 10, 2010 at 11:06 am

(By Joanne Galloway)

I’ve had that proverbial “pea under the mattress” with Matt Damon over his characterization of Sarah Palin for some time now.  It may be old news, but I think it’s important when you consider the current influence – and possible 2012 presidential run – of Sarah Palin.

Matt Damon – the *Rosetta Stone* for political knowledge – used his Hollywood influence to gain an interview with CBS news during the 2008 presidential campaigns.   He was quote, horrified, *egads* at the idea of McCain winning office with Sarah Palin left to potentially lead this country after his *imminent* demise.

Focusing solely on Mr. Damon’s fear, let’s analyze a few of his statements from the video snippet.  He refers to Sarah Palin as a:

“Bad Disney Movie”, “Totally absurd”, “really terrifying possibility…[of] this being a reality”, “I don’t know anything about her”, “Governor of Alaska for less than 2 years”

Ouch.  He must have really been scared.  Ok, never fear Matt – I looked into the matter for you – and to keep things simple – we’ll focus on just their public office experience, m’kay?  Good.

  • Palin was a member of the Wasilla, Alaska City Council from 1992 to 1996, and the city’s mayor from 1996 to 2002
  • Palin chaired the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission from 2003 until she resigned in 2004
  • From 2006 -2009, Palin was Governor of Alaska

Ok now we need someone to compare her to.  Ah heck – let’s go for the Head Honcho, the Big Cheese – let’s use Matt’s Hero and Chief, Mr. Obama.

  • Obama served three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004
  • He won election to the U.S. Senate in November 2004.
  • Won the presidency and was sworn in January 2009.

So… let’s do the simple math.

Sarah Palin’s years in elected office – 14-15 years, give or take a few months

Obama’s years in elected office – 13 give or take a few months (as of March 2010).

Hmmm.  I am no math major, but I think Mr. Damon might have been a tad off in his figuring.

If Mr. Obama was okay with Mr. Damon, then what was it again about Sarah Palin he “feared” so much? That she was a “soccer mom”?  I can see how that might put her out of the mainstream.  Ya know,… because there aren’t too many soccer moms out there.  He doesn’t “know anything about her”.  I suppose when you’re reading scripts there isn’t much time to read about anything else, guess we’ll have to forgive him there.  Or we could go into the shamefully wretched coverage the mainstream media gave to Palin.. oh, that’s another long, sad story – so , moving on…..  A “Bad Disney Movie”….well now, to be fair WALL-E did look like he was wearing glasses, but I’m not sure I get his point there.  “Really terrifying possibility” and  “Totally absurd”…

Oh whoops… he must have meant good ole’ Joe on that one.  *raucous laughter*

So, in simple conclusion, I’d have to agree *snort* – Oh yes – THANK GOODNESS we’re safe from Sarah Palin.  The good news is we have our *rock star* backup VP for dealing with the big stuff, ya know, like Vladimir Putin.

Sleep well Matt.  Nothing to fear here.

ACORN, Obama And The American Dream

In America, Andrew Breitbart, Corruption, illegal aliens, Obama on February 26, 2010 at 1:27 pm

The first video in this series shows Barrack Obama explaining how ACORN and others, during the first 100 days of his Presidency, will shape America’s future.  The footage was taken from the Heartland Democratic Presidential Forum on December 1st, 2007.

The next video (shot by James O’Keefe) uncovers an ACORN employee advising a 19-year-old (posing as a prostitute) on how to begin a brothel with thirteen (illegal) El Salvadorian children.  Unfortunately for ACORN, this was not an isolated incident.  James O’Keefe writes (via Biggovernment.com):

A famous community organizer once said, “The only way to upset the power structure in your communities is to goad them, confuse them, irritate them and, most of all, make them live by their own rules.  If you make them live by their own rules, you destroy them.” Impossible demands can irritate modern leftists in ways nothing else can, whether it’s by banning Lucky Charms cereal because it’s racist against Irish people, calling Planned Parenthood saying you want to donate money for black abortions in the name of Margaret Sanger, or making Sen. Snowe sign an oversized bailout check for a billion dollars to Amtrak, in her own office.

And finally, the last video in the series captures yet another ACORN employee on camera saying some pretty unbelievable stuff.  The women in the video, when explaining how to avoid an abusive pimp, recommends the prostitute teach the El Salvadorian kids how to keep their mouths shut (notice the children in the background throughout the entire segment).

ACORN may be guilty of promoting child prostitution, tax evasion, and lies but they would never actually tamper with voter registration for the purpose of getting America’s first black President elected, would they?

UPDATE: Andrew Breitbart takes on his own enemy (via Gateway Pundit).

Obama's A Post Turtle? Huh?

In funny, Obama on February 24, 2010 at 11:30 am

One of my readers emailed this to me today…

While suturing up a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the oldman. Eventually the topic got around to Obama, and his being our president. The old rancher said, “Well, ya know, Obama is just a Post Turtle.”Now …not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked, What’s a “Post Turtle?”The old rancher said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a post turtle.” The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he sure as heck ain’t goin’ anywhere, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there in the first place.”

Obama Uses Telepromter To Speak To 6th Graders

In Government Lies on January 24, 2010 at 9:35 pm

Yes, it’s true. President Obama recently (January 19, 2010) used a teleprompter when he spoke to a sixth grade class at Graham Road Elementary School in Falls Church, Virginia. While funny to some and terrifying to others, the fact remains: our President is an actor, a Manchurian candidate, a cardboard cut-out. The unbelievable story is now being covered by Gateway Pundit, The Admonition, Atlas Shrugs, US Message Board, Politico, Sean Hannity, Yahoo Buzz and many others.

Ironically, Obama was visiting the school to promote his ‘race to the top’ program. Remember the motto of Obama’s radical mentors: “by any means necessary” and “the end justifies the means” (whatever you have to do in your race to the top is fine, provided you get there kids-look at me!).  I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t let this guy near my kids.

More pictures of the event can be seen HERE.
