Enjoy! (Via Blue Jersey): UPDATED BELOW, later Thursday morning.
Love it. Damon has always struck me as significantly brighter than your usual big-time actor. Of course, this clip recalls this scene in Good Will Hunting when Damon’s character totally faces the Harvard jerkoff. Apparently MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell picked this up and ranted about it, and Reason responded with their usual complaint that “we’re not right wingers, because legalize pot and fight police brutality, how dare you!”
(Confidential to Reason magazine: if you’re so in love with the free market, why do you send your subscribers not just calls to renew their subscriptions, but also solicitations to send money to the Reason Foundation? Why don’t you let the free market decide on the value of your journalism? In any case, I find it difficult to believe that you can’t sell enough advertising to companies who champion deregulation and nonenforcement of the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts. Tobacco, coal, big Pharma, Monsanto, etc.)
