Matt Damon, my Hero part 2

First, he bashed Palin in the face.  Not really, sadly.  Now he goes to Haiti to help flood victims?  Man.  Matt Damon for Presidenet, 2008.  From the Hunnington Post:

Matt Damon kept his cool as he helped distribute food from a truck that got stuck in the mud in a western Haitian town where Hurricane Ike left hundreds of people homeless and hungry. He arrived with Haitian-born singer Wyclef Jean to hand out rice, beans and cooking oil in Cabaret, a town that saw 60 people die in flash floods when Ike grazed Haiti last week. Things got rough when the truck carrying 300 bags of food ran into a ditch, forcing the rest of the caravan to stop. Hundreds of Haitians mobbed an SUV carrying the celebrities, chanting “Wyclef!”

“I want to see Wyclef because he is my artist,” said Jean Sadrac, an unemployed 25-year-old. “I want Wyclef to help me with money or water.”

Jean clambered onto the roof of the SUV to calm the crowd, while bodyguards helped Damon make his way toward the truck with the food. He reached it easily; nobody recognized him. Damon said he enjoyed being in a place where few people have seen his movies.

“It’s nice, it’s really easy to move through a crowd like this,” Damon told The Associated Press, grinning wryly as he watched Jean talk to the crowd.

We love you, Matt Damon.
