Sarah Palin Is Bashing Game Change Even Though She Hasn't Seen It!

Palin Bashes Movie

How do you even know what's in it??

The screenwriter for the upcoming HBO movie Game Change, which is about Sarah Palin in 2008 (played by an uncanny Julianne Moore), really wishes Sarah would watch the movie before she started bashing it.

Just because she has no idea how it's presented is no reason for her political action committee to NOT release video and statement slamming it as being “fiction” filled with “the half-baked truths and fabrications of the liberal left.”

And guess what?

They even offered to screen it for her, and she turned it down. It's easier to jump to conclusions that way!

Here's what the screenwriter, Danny Strong, said:

“Everything in that video is in the movie. If they would have seen the film before they attacked it, they would know that we have dramatized everything that they put in their video that Sarah Palin supporters are proud of. She really is a dynamic person that did a lot of amazing things for that campaign.”

And here's what HBO said:

“Game Change, the book, was applauded by audiences and pundits on both ends of the political spectrum when it was released in 2010. The events depicted in Game Change have been thoroughly sourced by not only Heilemann and Halperin’s bestselling book, but also through our own research including extensive first person interviews with those involved with the campaign. HBO has a long track record of producing fact-based dramas, and our mantra has always been, ‘get the story right.’ We stand by our movie and we hope that people will withhold any judgment until they have viewed the film.”

Don't be such a soggy grape (the crunchy ones are WAY better), Sarah! Give it a chance! Especially since it's being praised by people who were on BOTH sides of the campaign, and the book itself was acclaimed!

Everyone who is interested will just have to wait and see if anything she's said is founded or just a whole-lotta-knee-jerk on March 10th!

    Lets face it, the press hasnt been very nice to her and HBO are liberal hack jobs when it comes to there documentaries and docudramas. She wont get a fair shake here and she knows it.



  2. 2

    I don't get why anything about her is important. Just don't get it. I don't care who she backs for President, etc., etc. So I don't get the appeal or attention she gets and don't care and won't watch. Quite sure there won't be much truth in the movie either but don't even care if they lie and twist it because it doesn't matter. She's not worth my time or energy.

    The thrust of this movie is that Palin should be in a mental institution and on drugs for severe mental illness. It's extreme hatred of Palin as a Person comes from extreme bitterness from Steve Schmidt who is small and petty and wants to destroy her by promoting the idea that Palin is insane and should be in a mental institution- all because he blames her for him being the worst campaign manager of all time.
    Also Moore, Harris, Roach and Strong all gave money to Obama which for some reason is not mentioned in this article. Tom Hanks gave Obama tens of thousands. Why is this not mentioned in the article. They all have pro obama and anti republican agendas. I don't understand this being ignored at all.
    Why was Obama Biden Hillary Bill Edwards all cut out?? I don't understand that either. Maybe because everyone involved in this film is a democrat who hates republicans and they want to bash them non stop- Even when they lose elections. They want to bask in their loss and makes moveis about republicans losing because they hate them so much.

    Bashing without being informed…. sounds like Perez to me.

    Re: caseyedw – Its content is all out. no secrets about the content of the movie



  6. 6

    This is like Obama endorsing a Movie about himself made by Fox News. Come on Perez

    She's important because she was one of the only politicians brave enough to speak out against BO's welfare state at the time of his election. The games over now, BO won, corruption is rampant in the government and business, and the US is a declining welfare state. Get used to it, your standard of living, and your quility of life is on the decline. There is little hope that the tide can be reversed. Politicians and Judges are now economic commodities that are bought and sold. The US is now akin to a Banana Republic.

    Sarah Palin is a card-carrying nut who likes to say the most ridiculous things only to keep her face in the public eye. If the Right wants to support a strong, well informed person, Sarah is not it. She's nothing but an empty headed puppet head who loves fame. Support smart people. Not idiots!

    Ummm… Hello? Its based on the book by the same name, by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann a couple of years back. This is very much why she doesn't need to see the movie, to know what's going with the HBO smearfest as I am sure she got all the info she needed from the book. As for the 'praise' you claim it has been receiving from 'both' sides? Really, dude…You need to expand your news sources to more than just MSNBC, because being praised by "both sides" it has most definitely not. And most especially? By those who actually know what was going on behind the scenes, not those only driven by agenda. Stick to entertainment, dude… As your knowledge on anything in the political realm ? Sorely lacking.

    I'm pretty sure that she doesn't HAVE to see the movie to know what's in it. Because it was a book first. And everything she's saying about the movie is just reenforcing what everyone said about the book… that it's mostly fiction. Still a good read though. I'm almost finished!



  11. 11

    Perez, she probably saw the trailer and even in the trailer you can tell they're bashing her



  12. 12

    The movie tell the TRUTH. She knows that. She can't handle the truth.



  13. 13

    Gawd, you right wing closet cases are lame! She is the one who ran on BASHING Obama in 2008. THAT WAS HER JOB. Remember? The pit bull? So dear ones, live by the sword, die by the sword. Right? None of this "oh, why is the media so mean to Palin?" junk. She wants to be a dick and she is a dick and we'll treat her like she deserves. Which is very poorly indeed. I'm sure the movie is nicer that she should be treated.

    Re: ObviousMuch? – Amen. It's amazing how he keeps commenting on political issues, but is so woefully uninformed.

  15. @v@ says – reply to this

    Meh. The entire thing helped make her very wealthy, so it's not what happens to you in life, but what you do with it. I don't think it was her destiny. I'd hang with her. She's fun.



  16. 16

    So she is passionately opposing something she is UNINFORMED about. The fact that the movie will point out that she is uninformed on EVERYTHING including what newspapers she reads, makes this even less shocking!
