Matt Damon Rips Sarah Palin

The Bourne Ultimatum star calls the Palin pick ‘a really bad Disney movie.’


In an interview with the Associated Press earlier this month actor Matt Damon aired his strong reservations about Republican VP pick Sarah Palin, calling the possibility of a Palin presidency “scary.” Damon said he thought the pick was made for purely “political purposes,” and as such was a “disaster.”
“I need to know,” he insisted, “if she really thinks dinosaurs were here 4,000 years ago…I want to know that, I really do, because she’s going to have the nuclear codes.”
