    I would pay to see this!!! How fun would it be to see Matt Damon in a real debate and shown to be the idiot that he really is! It's easy to sound smart when reading from a script and it's easy to spew crap in Hollywood when everyone else is as batty as you are! What do you guys think? Will Damon agree to the debate, or find an excuse not to do it???


    Iraq War Showdown: Bill Kristol Agrees to Debate Matt Damon After Actor’s “Idiot” Slamby Andrew Breitbart
    On Sunday afternoon Weekly Standard editor and New York Times columnist Bill Kristol — in an email exchange with Big Hollywood — agreed to debate Matt Damon on his Hollywood home turf after being informed the 38-year old actor ridiculed Kristol in an interview in the Miami Herald.

    “He’s an idiot — he wrote that we should be grateful to George Bush because he won the Iraq war. We! Won! The! War!”

    As the sponsor of the event, Big Hollywood is offering $100,000 to Damon (or to the charity or carbon credit of his choice) to publicly debate Kristol at a mutually agreed upon time, date and venue.



    During the last election cycle the liberal activist Damon — who briefly attended Harvard University — also heaped scorn on John McCain’s vice presidential pick, Sarah Palin:

    “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.”

    Damon is no stranger to left-wing politics. His Oscar-nominated screenplay, “Good Will Hunting,” co-written with Ben Affleck, was inspired by anarchist Boston University historian, Howard Zinn.

    According to Wikipedia:

    Damon included a reference to A People’s History in his film Good Will Hunting. In a confrontation with his psychologist, played by Robin Williams, Damon’s character tells him: “If you want to read a real history book, read Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. That book will knock you on your ass.” Damon also read the latter half of People’s History for an audiobook released February 1, 2003.

    If Damon agrees to participate, Big Hollywood will work with both parties to secure mutually agreed upon parameters for the debate (e.g., Did We Win the War in Iraq?)

    Well, Matt Damon certainly isn't that dumb. He wrote the screenplay for Good Will Hunting...and won an Oscar for it.

    Co-writing a screenplay does not make him the political genius that he thinks he is. In a true debate with Bill Kristol, I do not think he will have a chance.

    Meh! Two friggin' Liberals debating each other.

    I agree. Bill Kristol is smart and debating issues with liberals and moderates is what he does for a living. Unless Matt Damon was a champion in high school/college debate, he doesn't have any chance.

    So wrting a screenplay makes someone what? A sage?

    Here's the real issue.

    I don't doubt Kirstol's intelligence...just his wisdom.

    He doesn't care whether he debates a liberal, moderate or conservative. Just as long as the person disagrees with PFTNAC holy cause, then he'll gladly debate anyone that doesn't hold his Trotskyite/Wilsonian views.

    PFTNAC is one of the biggest reasons conservatism has lost it's way.

    As a matter of fact regarding Kristol...... He may be getting ready to go back home to the Democratic party where he belongs.

    Where Have All the Neocons Gone? PDF

    Having wrecked the Right, will neoconservatives revert to their left-wing origins or double down on the GOP?

    By Jacob Heilbrunn

    As Barack Obama prepares to take the inaugural oath, it almost seems otiose to note that his victory represents a sweeping repudiation of the neoconservative movement. Though neocons such as Randy Scheunemann formed a kind of Praetorian Guard around John McCain during his presidential campaign, their truculent approach to foreign affairs sabotaged rather than strengthened McCain’s electoral appeal. The best that Sarah Palin, a foreign-policy neocon on training wheels, could do was to offer platitudes about standing by Israel. It seems safe to say, then, that the neocon credo is ready to be put out to pasture.

    Or is it? One problem with this line of argument is that it’s been heard before—sometimes from the neoconservatives themselves. In 1988, after George H.W. Bush replaced Ronald Reagan, neocon lioness Midge Decter fretted, “are we a long, sour marriage held together for the kids and now facing an empty nest?” Then in the late 1990s, Norman Podhoretz ...(link above)
