Matt Damon for the U.S. Prez?

WTF? Why not?

Some Americans think that this might be a way to go…

Mr. Damon has not expressed a desire to run for office, but he has become known for his political activism. During the 2008 presidential campaign, he endorsed Barack Obama and called Sarah Palin’s story “a bad Disney movie.”

Recently, the actor said he’s “disgusted” by the debt-ceiling debate that had consumed Washington and said he is willing to pay higher taxes.

“I’m so disgusted, man. It’s criminal that like, you know, so little is asked of people who are getting so much; I mean, I don’t mind paying more,” Mr. Damon said. He was in Washington with his mother, a teacher, to promote the Save Our Schools march.

“I’d rather pay for taxes than cut like Reading is Fundamental or Head Start or some of these programs that are really helping kids,” he said. Mr. Damon also criticized the Tea Party for being willing to drive the American economy “off a cliff.”
