Don't Buy Liberalism

Matt Damon

The Top Liberals in America

College students in South Florida were treated to some star power, a week before Election Day.

Actor Matt Damon of the "Bourne Identity" series stopped by the University of Miami on Monday to speak to students about early voting. He's also scheduled to stop by the Hollywood Campaign for Change office and help lead the Miami March for Change event.

"I'm being paid a fortune," said Damon as he chuckled. "No, I volunteered to be here and if Obama wins Florida, he wins the White House, it's that simple."

Sunday night, Damon, along with actresses Kerry Washington and Alicia Silverstone, appeared at VoteFest '08, an all-day music festival on Miami Beach, funded by the Miami-Dade Democratic Party to promote early voting.

WASHINGTON - Sen. Barack Obama's advertising team is getting some friendly competition from film pros with some Oscar clout like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

"The spirit of the contest is to put into video form what it is that you think will help push Obama over the top," said Iliyse Hogue, the campaign director for Political Action. "It's a great thing for aspiring ad makers and film makers who want to participate in a meaningful way."

Participants in the "Obama in 30 Seconds" contest will have until April 1 to submit their entries. MoveOn members, which the organization places at 3.2 million people, will be able to vote on their favorites by watching them on the MoveOn Web site. The top 15 entries will then be judged by a panel of liberal activists, recording artists and Hollywood notables.

Among them will be Affleck and Damon, both Academy Award-winning actors and writers. Also judging will be actor Steve Buscemi, film director Oliver Stone, singer songwriters Moby, Eddie Vedder and John Legend, civil rights leader Jesse Jackson and hip-hop entrepreneur Russell Simmons.

"I think there's a really good chance Sarah Palin could become president, and I think that's a really scary thing," he told the Associated Press, referring to the Republican vice presidential nominee.

"It's like a really bad Disney movie," he said. "The hockey mom, you know, 'Oh, I'm just a hockey mom'... and she's facing down [Russian] President Putin... It's totally absurd... It's a really terrifying possibility."

"We've become the people our parents warned us about!" That quip by veteran singer Jimmy Buffet underscored the zeitgeist at Thursday night's major Democratic fundraiser at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Vice President Al Gore and running-mate Joe Lieberman, with respective spouses and Hillary Clinton for good (and local) measure were the front-row guests of honor through a three-hour concert which raised a very impressive $6.5 million for the DNC.

Salma Hayek was so enthused with saying that "Al Gore rocks!" - that she walked offstage forgetting to introduce the next act - and had to dash back to announce Jon Bon Jovi. Perhaps the most enthusiastically received line of the night came from the boyish Matt Damon who equated George Bush with "Fredo" from the "Godfather" movies. "And they wouldn't even let him run the family business...."

An exuberant crowd of nearly 2,000 packed New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom on Tuesday night ostensibly to voice their support for Sen. John Kerry, but President Bush had the dubious distinction of being the man of the hour.

From hipsters to professionals to aging hippies, the audience was as diverse as the talent on stage. Attendees paid $25 to $500 to watch performances by rocker Perry Farrell, techno-musician Moby, singer Natalie Merchant and hip-hop collective The Roots.

The event, sponsored by, also unveiled a new TV ad campaign featuring such Hollywood stars as Scarlett Johannson, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos and Matt Damon. Several of the stars appearing in the ads were on hand as were other celebrity speakers, including actress Edie Falco, comedian Al Franken and actor and musician Kevin Bacon. But the longest and most enthusiastic standing ovation of the evening was saved for former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.
