HBO targets Sarah Palin in new “Game Change” movie

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Well, the media is at it again. HBO, the same network that airs the classy “Real Time with Bill Maher”, has decided to use their new movie “Game Change” to commit character assassination against for Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin. How?

Glenn said that the book “Game Change” attacked everyone, but that version didn’t seem attractive to the HBO executives as they decided to only include (and expand) upon the parts that attack Sarah Palin.

“Is she not invisible enough now? She’s going around, and making speeches and everything, but she’s not running,” Glenn said. Glenn said that they are likely attacking her credibility so she can never run for any kind of office again.

Among the “examples” the movie uses to ridicule Palin? The film claims that she didn’t know that Germany was a primary antagonist during World War II and that she thought Saddam Hussein attacked the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Of course, the victims of this film are not the Palins, but rather McCain and his staff. In the movie, the chief campaign staffers are shown not to have asked her any serious policy questions, and as a result are shocked when she doesn’t have a deep understanding of foreign policy. But does anyone really believe no serious questions were asked? It seems very unlikely.

“This is a payback to McCain,” Stu said. “To change history to him being the nicest guy in the universe who was trying to look out for Sarah Palin. He felt bad. He looks good in every single clip, and Palin looks horrible.”

Who else looks bad in the movie? The conservatives who would later form The Tea Party.

As the film approaches its third act, the Tea Party is portrayed as racist and ignorant – with Palin supporters calling Obama a “Muslim” and calling for him to “go back to Africa”. Of course, this is just reminiscent of the picture that the media was trying to paint of the Tea Party during the election and throughout the early years of Obama’s presidency.

    The movie and the book were both very well done.
    glenn and his lemmings will whine and cry about both, but the facts were thoroughly vetted (unlike Palin) and they are both entertaining works.

    Anyone shock that the left cannot act their age? Is there a shock that HBO rapes history? This is the home of Bill Maher so it is not shocking to me that the propaganda wing of Obama attacks the right when there is an election. What a bunch of hypocrites and lying sacks of pooh.

    They want to go after Sarah Palin to try and make it appear that she is “typical” of the Right candidates; no matter how good a candidate is, they will use her to craft the new ‘stereotype” for the propaganda machinery. She is, in their eyes, the ultimate evil incarnate – a woman who dares to challenge the system and thus scares them at the same time.

    Obama nor Palin has had enough experience.Palin might be able to win and become president later in her life.Just a few lines in this movie I have heard and it is very corny and cheesey dialogue.

    This is funny. I know i can’t stand some of the left and the same goes for the right, but when we have to try and smear the other person to win is sick and not real politics. Where is the election based on how well the person is doing with bringing our country together. That is what we should focus on, getting this country to unite.

    I don’t like the same things other people do, but it is compromising. We all have love this country and the freedoms the consitution gives us. We all live here, so instead of complaining the left is doing this and the right is doing that, why don’t we negotate terms. Obama is trying to separate us and it is working. Listen to the left and right arguing, its embarrissing.

    Folks it is time we stand together. It is time take back our ecomony from the left and right. We are the people, we are the voters, we are the ecomony and the government knows this, and they are scared on this, that is why they try to divide us.

    Stand up and say “I AM FREE, I WILL FIGHT WITH EVERY LAST BREATH TO MAKE THIS NATION GREAT, SCREAM I AM AN AMERICAN AND I LOVE THIS COUNTRY!”

     A 6th grade class could have made a better movie. It was poorly written with some of the worst acting to ever appear on HBO. Just because your doing a hatchet job doesn’t mean you got to use hacks as actors.

    Mr. Sidney Mamet,
    The Conservatives of our country would like to welcome you back to the film industry.
    YES WE WILL, should be the title. The life and times of a failure to communicate; a pariah to the greatest country in the world and a dismal future if given a second term. Now that THEY have besmirched Gov. Palin in a movie made for only Hollywood, it is time to make a movie that will be viewed by generations to come as a non-fictional depiction of what happens when Americans fall asleep; when Americans take God out of the equation; when Americans forget who they are. Mr. Mamet, I know you have retired from an industry that has seen failure after failure; I implore you to return and tell that story for all to see.

    R U FREE

    The left fears her.  They want to make certain she never runs for office again.  My feeling is, when she does return, no one will be able to stop her.   We will have a woman President one day and it won’t be Hillary.   Palin/Rubio ticket would be welcomed, yes indeed.

    This movie will back fire on them.  I saw it last night and since then the net has been on fire.  Apparently it was loosely based on the truth.  

     I saw it as Sarah the victim; a woman trying to juggle motherhood, her job, a marriage and the press.    A person watching can’t help but feel empathy for her;  a woman watching, may even relate.  A non-political woman may even think to herself, “she’s got courage, perseverance and moxie….what are those liberals talking about, I like her!”   I hope she runs again!

    Not so far off the mark I’d say.

    I don’t understand how these companies can not be sued. She once was a public figure. But her family has been attacked over and over again. I can’t understand how or why they couldn’t be sued.  This scum won’t be happy until she is 6ft underground.  But surprise she wins in the end.  She’ll be surrounded in glory and her enemies that have spat at her will be a little hot.

     I watched The Undefeated this weekend. It’s still not too late for me. If Sarah threw her hat in the Presidential ring, I would be on the phone donating every red cent I was allowed to send. Lets face it, WE haven’t gotten behind anyone yet because we only have Progressives. There are a lot of outlets that want US to choose now due to the loyalty factor so they have a narrower list. I have until November, you do too.

    Why do anyone bother to go and see a movie that we know is totally fabricated and full of lies? we can’t even say that will be entertaining. And why even go and put our money in the packets of those who hate Sarah Palin and every conservative? so that they can go and use that money to continue their attacks?. Common! I know that I’m only one person here, but I refuse to support any actors, business, company or any one that demonize my God given freedom.
    I may not make any damage in their finances, but I will be faithful to my principles and believes.

    Wouldn’t be too upset with the movie—on HBO.  How many in the US have that station on their

    TV?   I know I don’t.  Can’t afford the premium channels.  If a large number of folks are still out

    of work, I would imagine they might have cut back on some of their TV packages—unless, of

    course, they are the ones receiving ”Obama money.”        Meanwhile, I understand poor Sarah

    has been resurrected on SNL (which I haven’t watched in years) and from the picture I saw, it

    looks like a man!   And not a very handsome one at that.

    Do you think if a movie like that was made, there would be a major channel that would

    show it?   It would, probably, have to be filmed in Canada because the unions in the US

    might not work on the set.   Having said this—I certainly hope there would be a studio

    brave enough to tackle an accurate depiction of ”The Making of a Liberal America.”

    And I would like Sid to come to the rescue!   One can always hope, Rufree.

    that movie made me sick and angry to watch. they made so much crap up it was ridiculous. it even contradicted itself a couple of times. Sarah would never say she doesn’t want to go back to Alaska. if she did say that then she wouldn’t have been concerned about her poll numbers in Alaska. i could go on and on about this but it would be useless. she is much more intelligent then they made her appear in the movie. she should sue them for defamation of character.

    RUFREE>> Rubio’s parents WERE NOT U.S. CITIZENS until 1975…..4 years after he was born.  THAT MAKES HIM INELIGIBLE FOR POTUS.
    BOTH PARENTS (PLURAL) MUST BE NATURAL BORN CITIZENS.
    Rubio was born in Miami, Florida, May 28, 1971 the second son and third child of Mario Rubio (1927–2010) and Oria Garcia (born 1931). His parents were Cubans who had emigrated to the United States in 1956 and were later naturalized as U.S. citizens in 1975.

  • Anonymous

    There’s nothing in the Constitution concerning the parents of a citizen born in this country.  If that were the case, Obama would not be eligible either as his natural father was born in Kenya.
    Most parents of earlier presidents weren’t born here either.

    Did I miss an Amendment in the Constitution that states both parents must be born here?

    RUFREE >> Marco was born in May 1971, more than 4 years before his father Mario elected to become a U.S. Citizen and renounced his Cuban citizenship in Nov 1975.Senator Marco Rubio’s father was not a naturalized citizen when Marco was born in May 1971 per National Archives data.
    His father applied for naturalization in Sep 1975.
    Marco Rubio not constitutionally eligible to run for President or VP.
    Thus Marco’s father passed Cuban citizenship at birth to Marco Rubio under Cuban law, U.S. law, natural law, and international law. Being a dual citizen at birth, Marco Rubio is not a “natural born Citizen of the United States”.
    A natural born Citizen of the United States is one born in the United States to two U.S. Citizens who were Citizens of the United States either by birth or naturalization at the time of the birth of the child. A “http://www.scribd.com/doc/47436318/Obama-Not-a-Natural-Born-Citizen-w-Venn-Diagram-24Jan2011-Wash-Times-Natl-Wkly-pg-5
    natural born Citizen of the United States is a child born with sole allegiance to the United States, a person born without Citizenship in any other country other than the USA at the time of their birth.
    A natural born Citizen has no foreign influence or claim on them by another country at the time of their birth under U.S. law and the Law of Nations. That is why the founders and framers chose the legal term of art “natural born Citizen” for the eligibility clause for the singular most powerful office in our form of government, the President and Commander in Chief of our military.  http://www.kerchner.com/images/protectourliberty/johnjay1787lettertogeorgewashington.jpg
     
    They did not wish command of our military forces to ever devolve to a person born with dual allegiances.
    Marco Rubio was born with dual citizenship and dual allegiances. He is both a Cuban citizen and a U.S. citizen by birth.
    Marco Rubio is thus NOT a natural born Citizen of the United States and is thus not constitutionally eligible to serve as President or Vice President of the United States.

Say two nice things about Glenn and two things about Palin if you are truly a Christian with no hate in your heart you could do that. Oh by the way you make fun of my knowledge about the bible shows me that you hate God to because it his own words that he wants us to live by. Oh by the way one of my good friends happens to be gay and I might not agree to what he does and he knows it but we are still friends why because he knows what is in my heart. That and I threaten to kick someone’s ass because he was threating his life now if I was a part of westboro who think these people should be put to death why would a defend the man. See God said it was a sin to be gay but I am not into shoving my beliefs down other people’s throats like you do. Whenever people ask me about my faith I will tell them the truth but not if they ask or in your case unless the drag Jesus name though the dirt because they can’t let their hate go.  You don’t know anything about me so don’t try to lump me into a group because you hate all right wingers.
