Bad Disney Movie or Puffin Poop?

I ran across this little interview of Matt Damon talking about Sarah Palin's run with McCain on YouTube. I've never put much stock into what celebrities have to say about politics because...
well really,... do I have to explain?
But this was pretty spot on, imo.

Without further ado, I give you Mr. Damon...

LOL at bad Disney movie. Straight to video!

I know, I know... two political posts in as many weeks. So NOT me, but I can't help it!!
We Canadians (or is that 'us' Canadians?) have our own federal election set for next month and it's not nearly as juicy as the happenings to our south! All we've got is the tasteless Puffin Poop ad to get our knickers in a knot over...

Ah, politics... the jokes practically write themselves.

I also have not understood why the reproductive decisions of a daughter are the main topic of interest for this woman rather than her own perspective.

And in the by the way department - ref previous post - my neighbor down the street actually is a rocket scientist!

I just shake my head at the PC's stupid ad campaign.

I also got a "call" from Stephen Harper. I was put on hold for 5 minutes and then got the voice greeting from our current Puffin Poop loving politician.

*shakes head*

M. - a rocket scientist, fo'real?? I thought they were just a myth ;)
I'd be interested to know Mr. Rocket Scientist's take on the Hadron Collider. I'm a bit obsessed with it at the moment, for reasons even i don't understand!

Amy - This is why you need caller id.

J.K. Coi said...

Amy, did you really stay on hold for five minutes for someone who called YOU? I so hate that. I mean, if you're going to call me, at least have the decency to be there when I answer the bloody phone.
Sorry, in no way political, but that's my rant.

All I can say is - I'm so glad that Canadian elections go like this: 'Hey! Let's have an election!' *a few weeks later* 'The new Prime Minister!'

As opposed to American elections:
(the day after the election) 'Hey! Let's have an election!' *four solid years of campaiging* 'The new President!' (the day after the election) 'Hey! Let's have an election!'

Ugh, this election is making me chew record amounts of antacid!

Puffin Poop? I don't know what that is, but just the sound of it when spoken out loud is making me laugh. :)

Wylie Kinson said...

Julia - AMEN to that!

TL - it's makin g ME chew antacids and I'm not a voting American!!
Puffins - the penguins of the northern hemisphere. Very lovely birds. I'll post a picture on my next post.
