Big Hollywood, a division of Breitbart.com, has offered Matt Damon $100,000 to debate Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard. This is after Damon called Kristol an idiot. Story here.
“He’s an idiot — he wrote that we should be grateful to George Bush because he won the Iraq war. We! Won! The! War!”
Matt Damon is calling Bill Kristol an idiot. I will assume anybody reading this knows who both are.
Bill Kristol if you have seen him speak is uber-intelligent. His grasp of the issues is second to none. His analysis, which I don't always agree with in principle, is superb and well thought out.
Matt Damon on the other hand, how to say this, he's not Bill Kristol. Mind you, he's not quite Paris Hilton or Jessica Simpson, but him calling Kristol an idiot is laughable.
I think the bigger issue here is the leftards in Hollyweird being experts on, well, everything because they can act. I don't want to malign Damon. He may be a fairly intelligent person though I still hold that he is not on par with Kristol intellectually. Bottom line though is being an actor does not give him an innate grasp of the issues. He does not compare to a man who spends his every waking moment thinking about politics.
I hope that they can put this debate together. It will be nice for a change to see one of these pampered little stars get their asses handed to them. It will be another case of throwing the Christians to the lions, or in modern terms, throwing the Lions to a professional football team.
My bet is though that Damon will not be able to make room in his schedule. Because the only other sure thing about these liberal idiots is that they are smartest when they don't have to defend their position. More often than not when one of them is called out on their position and confronted with a reasonable argument (most of us just call it the truth), they forget their lines all of a sudden.
