RUSH: Yesterday in an interview with the Associated Press, noted celebutard Matt Damon.
DAMON: You do the actuary tables, you know, 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, and it’s like a really bad Disney movie. You know, the hockey mom, you know, ‘Oh, I’m just a hockey mom from Alaska,’ and she’s the president, and it’s like she’s facing down Vladimir Putin, and, you know, using the — you know, the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey, you know, rink, you know, it’s just — it’s absurd.
RUSH: Matt, let me tell you something. You need to study up on Sarah Palin, you will find out that she has been very open, everything she learned about competition, everything she learned about dealing with obstacles in her way and adversity she learned playing basketball, and she was good at it, and this is before Title IX, Matt, before the feminists got their hands around high school and junior high school athletics. I’ll tell you what, old Matt old buddy, I’d rather have Sarah Palin staring down Vladimir Putin than Barack Obama agreeing with Putin that the United States of America is the problem in the world, you little jerk. The United States of America is the solution to the problems in the world, and your guy, Obama, thinks we’re the problem. ‘We’re not as great as we once were.’ ‘We haven’t met our promise,’ and so forth. But he can’t tell you when it was better. So when it comes down to staring down either Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — I mean it’s your guy who said he would meet with these people without preconditions, that he would grant them the imprimatur of seriousness by walking them into the Oval Office. Your guy lives in a pipe dream. He thinks by the power of his personality, his messianic personality, his ability to persuade, that all these people are going to become our friends and we’re going to end the strife, and there will be no tense anxiety and nobody will be wringing their hands together ’cause it’s all going to be one perfect world of peace and love and harmonic convergence at Mount Shasta, ohmm. Give me Sarah Palin dealing with these thugs any day. Here’s more of the celebutard Matt Damon.
DAMON: It’s a really terrifying possibility. The fact that we’ve gotten this far and we’re that close to this being a reality is crazy, crazy. She — I mean does she really — I need know if she really thinks dinosaurs were here 4,000 years ago. That’s an important — I want to know that. I really do. Because she’s going to have the nuclear codes, you know. I — I want to know if she thinks dinosaurs were here 4,000 years ago or if she banned books or tried to ban books. I mean — you know, we can’t — we can’t have that.
RUSH: What an idiot. Well, there you have it. Actually, I want to take that back. Matt, I’m sorry I called you a celebutard and I’m sorry I called you a jerk. I am, because I want him to keep talking. I think he’s brilliant. I think he’s got some tremendous insights here. I think Matt Damon may be on to something here, folks. We need to hear more from Matt. Matt, I’m sorry. I usually don’t call people names like this, and it’s been a pressure packed day for me, too. So I’m sorry. You keep talking. Keep granting these interviews, like to Us Weekly and to Entertainment Tonight and, let’s see, what else could you go on, some of these stupid shows — go on American Idol, ask them for a speaking engagement one night on American Idol as they get ginned up here before the election, some such show as that. Buy an hour’s worth of TV time, that’s right, buy an hour’s worth of TV time to tell everybody how concerned you are with Sarah Palin. Buy it on NBC, they’ll sell it to you, probably cheap.
RUSH: We have Tonya from Fayetteville, North Carolina, Fort Bragg on the phone. Tanya, nice to have you here.
CALLER: Oh, thanks. How you doing?
RUSH: Very well, ma’am.
CALLER: Me, too. I’m going to get right to my point because my main point is, Golda Meir, a Milwaukee school teacher that went to Israel, was prime minister, and kicked butt, an ordinary, everyday woman that rose to the challenges. Any woman, any person can rise to any challenges. And I’d like to go on to Matt Damon and the bad Disney thing. What’s a dinosaur 4,000 years ago? I mean, they weren’t here 4,000 years ago, does he think that?
RUSH: No, let me tell you what I think that is. Now, I’m not sure about that, because she’s never said that. What this is is Matt Damon’s bigotry, prejudice, and bias against fundamentalist Christians who believe the earth is only 10,000-year-olds. So that’s what he thinks of all Christians. He thinks all evangelical Christians think that the earth is not billions and billions and billions of years old, it’s only 10,000-year-old. And therefore in the 10,000-year history of the planet the dinosaurs would have been around 4,000 years ago. I think that’s what it is, because she’s never said this.
CALLER: I don’t know where it’s coming from, but, you know, his buddy, Ben Affleck, raised by a single mom, rose to great fame, great prominence. Women can do anything. I know.
RUSH: Of course they can.
CALLER: I’m a retired first sergeant.
RUSH: But they’re not going to let a Republican woman get away with doing anything.
CALLER: Well, they’re hypocrites. I mean on one hand, oh, go out there, be all you can be, get a college degree–
RUSH: Right, right, glad to see you’re figuring it out.
CALLER: — degree, have children, run corporate America, but men, when it’s not somebody that espouses their views —
CALLER: — oh, she needs to be home with her kids.
RUSH: That’s right. I’m glad to see that you’re figuring it out. Better that people figure it out on their own than just be told by somebody. Anyway, Tanya, thanks much for the phone call, I appreciate it.
