Today's election snippet comes from, of all people, Matt Damon. I know. I was surprised, too. But he turns out to be smart, and thoughtful, and articulate, and kind of weirdly radical. There's no new news in this, btw: it's just a really perceptive, really scary analysis of the potential Palin Presidency.
Reminder: If McCain becomes President, Palin will be a heartbeat away from the Presidency. A very weak heartbeat. McCain has, conservatvely estimated, a 1 in 3 chance of dying in office. In his first term alone.
A vote for McCain is a vote for Palin. Remember that, and watch this video. (Video below the jump.)
My favorite bit (apart from the whole "bad Disney movie" analysis, which is dead-on) is this: "I need to know if she really thinks dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago. That's an important -- I want to know that. I really do. Because she's gonna have the nuclear codes."
I'm just sayin', is all.
