Matt Damon Smears Disney

Long time readers probably realize I’m a big Disney fan. That brainwashing comes from having taken more trips to Walt Disney World than I have time to count right now, and spending them in total Disney immersion at their resorts.  You cannot spend weeks at The Grand Floridian, Boardwalk, Yacht, and Beach Club without becoming a die hard Disney fan.

In talking about the choice of Sarah Palin, Matt Damon saysIt’s like a really bad Disney movie.” That is an unfair smear against Disney. Nothing this terrible happens in a Disney movie. Even Lindsay Lohan is good (and keeps her clothes on) when in a Disney movie.

Beyond this point, I agree with everything else Damon days about Palin:

“It’s like a really bad Disney movie. The hockey mom… and she’s president and facing down [Russian president] Vladimir Putin,” Damon said. “It’s absurd. It’s totally absurd and I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about it.”

Damon also suggested McCain’s selection of Palin wasn’t based on her political qualifications.

“I know she was the mayor of a really small town. She’s the Governor of Alaska for less than two years. I just don’t understand it. I think the pick was made for political purposes, but in terms of governance, it’s a disaster,” he added. “I need to know if she really thinks that dinosaurs were really here 4,000 years ago. I want to know that. Because she’s going to have the nuclear codes. I want to know that and I want to know if she tried to ban books. We can’t have that.”
