Mr. Damon might find it difficult to string words together... you know... to let a sentence flow as language intended. But, Lord, if he managed to master that, HE could run for president.

His latest attempt at speech is a fine example of his potential. When you remove all the "I means", "you knows", "uuuuhs", "ooohms" and indecipherable gurgles - he's really got something resembling a point:

"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 the president… She's like facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey... rink... It's absurd... It's a really terrifying possibility... I need to know if she really thinks dinosaurs were here 4,000 years ago... 'cause she's gonna have the nuclear codes..."

Well done, Matt, well done. Now go have a lie down.
