Democrat Double Standards

So far, several celebrities have voiced their opinion of Sarah Palin as McCain’s VP pick.  As we should have expected, I guess, it’s not pretty.  It’s amazing to me just how defensive they were about Hillary when she was up for the Democratic nod because she’s a woman.  When the woman is a conservative Republican, though, it’s a different story!

Candace Bergen said the idea of Palin as VP was “frightening.”  The hosts of The View, including Whoopi Goldberg, have castigated Palin at every turn, spewing rumor after rumor and refusing in most cases to apologize and make a retraction after the rumors are soundly debunked.  Most recently, pretty-boy Matt Damon said it would be like “a bad Disney movie.”  When asked to elaborate, he said, “you do the actuary tables, 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.’  ‘Oh, I’m just a hockey mom from Alaska!’ and she’s President.  She’s facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink.  It’s absurd!”

Uh…Matt…how much less absurd is the idea that Barack Obama’s “experience” will do him any better?  Obama launched his career with the help of home-grown terrorist Bill Ayers, then conducted his campaign with money donated by slumlord and powermonger Tony Rezko and his ilk (including Iraqi billionaire Nadhmi Auchi, who was a member of Saddam’s Baath party and sold him high-quality military equipment and was later involved in the scandal-ridden Oil-for-Food program).  Both Auchi and Rezko have been convicted of fraud, and Rezko is about to go on trial AGAIN for even more fraud!  But hey, Matt’s not worried about the company Barack keeps.  He’s The One, he preaches “change” and he’s not a Republican.  What more could a rich actor wish for in a Presidential candidate?

Exactly what qualifies Matt Damon–or any of these other high-society, low-class celebrities–to pass judgment on any candidate?  Their beliefs?  If all it took was a strong belief to make one an expert, I’d be raking in the bucks with my writing.  And why do we put so much stock in what these adult brats have to say?  Why is it so important?  They never give unbiased opinions.  Everything with them, like all liberals, is based on emotions.

Matt Damon pointing out Palin’s “inexperience” is what’s really absurd.

  1. Actually, it’s not hypocritical at all.

    Obama may be unexperienced, but he has a MUCH more impressive life story.

    It’s freakin heroic how he transformed himself into an Ivy-League millionaire from a poor kid on food stamps.

    Palin’s a cook

  2. So, having an “impressive” life story makes him more qualified? That’s like saying Clinton was a great President because he was a slick, young, good-looking guy. I love to hear stories of people working their way up from obscurity, and I’ve never gone against that. I just think his politics, quite frankly, SUCK.

    Palin may be a cook, but that only proves why I like her. She’s not afraid to do her own work. She got rid of the private chef, the driver, and the luxury jet and does it all herself because she doesn’t feel entitled to any of that stuff.

  3. It’s heroic how Obama transformed himself, but it’s not amazing how far Sarah Palin went while still BEING herself?

    That’s a little elitist of you, don’t you think? Because she became governor without a law degree she isn’t worth as much? Because she managed to run a state while being the mother of five children, that’s not a notable accomplishment? Because she had to finance her own college education and found a way to do so, that’s not noteworthy?

    Barack Obama may have transformed himself, but Sarah Palin remained true to herself.

  4. And the word “heroic” is vastly over-used these days.

    Admiral Stockdale was a hero. Barack Obama went to Law School.

  5. “Obama may be unexperienced, but he has a MUCH more impressive life story.”

    So at point does this help govern a nation? I don’t think his life story is impressive at all. WOOHOO you got into an Ivy-League school so have a lot of other people and no it’s not “heroic” to get into school on an affirmative action case even if it is the Ive-League.

    You can’t vote “present” for your whole life and expect people with a brain to care.

  6. Matt’s just reading his lines, as usual. It’s as though he thinks Robin Williams is a mathematics professor.
    People actually think life imitates art.
    Martin Sheen thinks he should get a secret service detail as any other former president. Ed Asner couldn’t write a two sentence paragraph, thinks Ex-LAX is a departure gate.
    People used to write to Perry Mason for legal advice.
    Even at a MENSA meeting someone’s the dumbest in the room. (Above cases hardly applicable.)

  7. “It’s freakin heroic how he transformed himself into an Ivy-League millionaire from a poor kid on food stamps. ”


    Heroic? I grew up poor. Food stamp poor too. We were never on welfare. But you did not see Cadillacs parked in our driveway unless they belongs to someone else.

    I did well in school but not Ivy League well. I worked, saveed for college, and graduated from a public university.

    I have a career I love and some money saved up. But I am not a millionaire. So what?

    I don’t think I am heroic. I think of myself as someone who did what he was supposed to do. That’s not heroic.

    You want heroic? Heroic are the people who volunteered to join the military when I was in college studying and having fun. They are heroic. I am not.

  8. The people that join the military don’t consider it heroic, they do it because they know it needs to be done and someone has to do it. It gets them out of the ghetto or their town, it gives them a job and something to do with their lives. I don’t say this to cut them down I say this because that is how they are and how the feel they don’t do it to be heroes of for glory they are just doing the job that need to be done. With that said they do like to know they are appreciated now and then.
