  • Why Pamela Anderson and Matt Damon won't be supporting US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin

    Pamela Anderson and Matt Damon have joined a chorus of Hollywood disapproval against the Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

    At a rally in Toronto against cruelty to animals, the former Baywatch actress revealed her contempt for John McCain’s running mate.

    She told reporters: ‘I can’t stand her. She can suck it!’

    Her comments followed actor Matt Damon‘s warning of the ‘scary’ prospect of Ms Palin, whose only political experience is being governor of Alaska for two years and serving as a small-town mayor, becoming president.

    The Hollywood A-lister, a Barack Obama supporter known for his left wing views, said that statistically there was a ‘really terrifying’ possibility that Ms Palin could take over the Oval Office.

    ‘I think the pick was made for political reasons, but in terms of governance, it was a disaster,’ he said.

    ‘I think there’s a really good chance that Sarah Palin could be president, and I think that’s the really scary thing.’

    He added: ‘It’s like a really bad Disney movie. The hockey mom from Alaska and she’s the president and it’s like she’s facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink and it’s absurd.

    ‘It’s totally absurd and I don’t know why more people aren’t talking about how absurd it is.’
