Matt Damon Condemns Palin for Sheer Lack of Experience

Actor speaks out on McCain's running mate.

Actor Matt Damon is speaking out on hockey mom Sarah Palin's ability to be vice president, or even president.  He claims she lacks the experience to lead, and that we don't know nearly enough about her.  According to Damon:

 "I think there's a really good chance Sarah Palin could become president, and I think that's a really scary thing... I think the pick was made for political purposes... Do the actuary tables and there's a one out of three chance, if not more, that McCain doesn't survive his first term and it'll be 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 President Putin... It's totally absurd... it's a really terrifying possibility."
