Matt Damon, the actor, called Bill Kristol an “idiot” in an interview with the Miami Herald because Kristol said we should be grateful to George Bush for winning the Iraq war. (Why the Herald is interested in Damon’s views on Iraq is a question I can’t answer.) That triggered quick action by Andrew Breitbart of Big Hollywood. Andrew came up with $100,000 and got Kristol’s consent to come to Hollywood to debate Damon on the war.

Andrew has now issued the challenge to Damon–debate Kristol publicly, and he (or a charity designated by him) will get $100,000. It will probably never happen, but the entertainment value could be enormous!
