Oscar winning screenwriter and actor Matt Damon expressed his fears about Sarah Palin's bid and lack of qualifications to be Vice President. Matt Damon said that the fact that Sarah Palin could become president was like " a bad disney movie." College Humor responded to Matt Damon's comments with the release of a Sarah Palin parody trailer called "Head of Skate". The clip shows the Republican Vice Presidential candidate's rise to political power from Alaska Hockey mom to President. Watch the video and Matt Damon's interview that sparked the debate and parody.
“And I think that’s a really scary thing because I don’t know anything about her,” says Damon. “I know she was a mayor of a really, really small town. And she was governor of Alaska for less than two years. I just don’t understand . . . I think the pick was made for political purposes but in terms of governance it’s a disaster.”
“You 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 will be President Palin,” said Damon.
“It’s like a really bad Disney movie, “The Hockey Mom.’ Oh, I’m just a hockey mom from Alaska, and she’s president,” said Damon. “She’s facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. It’s absurd.” source
