Matt Damon!

Karol links to Matt Damon's rip on Sarah Palin. The funniest part of it, as Petitedov pointed out hilariously in the comments section, was his mention of 'actuary tables'.

'Wow, he breaks out really complex terminology like "Actuarial tables" to get the message across that Matt Damon is smart!'

Love that Petitedov.

Ok I have to be a bit nitpicky because this is the nature of my work and I love it when people try to act like they know what the hell an 'Actuary table' is. First of all Matt, it's and 'Actuarial table'. And you don't DO Actuarial tables. You READ and ANALYZE Actuarial tables. And according to the 'Actuarial tables' the average age of an 70 year old insured male is 85.1. That one-third number you got from NPR or something was the percentage of past presidents that died in office, many of whom were assassinated, died before the two term limit, and died at a time when life span was much shorter than it is now.

I'm not sure why I'm even wasting my breath on Matt's other idiotic questions like if Palin banned books or thinks dinosaurs were here 4,000 years ago but I'll just say maybe instead of asking those questions, Matt, you should ask your old U.S. government teacher from the South Side what exactly the purpose of having three branches of government are again? Or I can just tell you. They are to prevent any one branch from overreaching their boundaries! Therefore, a president, much less a VP could never ban books on an entire nation or tell schools what to teach their students. That's why you live in fabulous L.A. and not a lil ol' fishermans' town in Alaska!

G-d Bless America!

Man, and why are the dumb ones so hot again????
