Change The Game (Monica Crowley slams HBO's "Game Change")
Monica Memo ^ | 3-9-2012 | Monica Crowley

Posted on 03/09/2012 6:37:43 PM PST by ak267

As I sat in a darkened theater at the premiere for HBO's new movie, "Game Change," I had the same thought I did when I watched Oliver Stone's films "Nixon" and "W." I thought: "This is what liberals think is a sympathetic portrait."

Make no mistake: this movie is disgusting and insulting to conservatives. Sure, the filmmakers toss in a few scenes in which the central character, Sarah Palin, is depicted in tender ways: as a truly devoted mother, and as a fantastic retail politician who not only connects with real people but really cares about them.

But the vast majority of the movie is an elitist slam of her and everything for which she---and we---stand.

I will never watch this trash, nor do I watch HBO, or any other alphabet network.

Liberals will never understand Sarah. They don’t know how to handle a woman who is beautiful, has morals, is religious, and has a happy family while juggling a career. Jealousy is an ugly thing, but then again so are liberal women.

WE CONSERVATIVE WOMEN ROCK!!

That’s why liberals hate her so much, because they don’t understand Conservatism, they don’t understand what it means to be Pro Life. They look at Trig and don’t understand why se didn’t abort him..liberals are scum and I will NEVER ever watch this awful fecal matter called HBO..a network so in the tank for Obama they don’t speak unless their master tells them to

There are alot of great people in Indiana. I love my state and fellow Hoosiers.

It will be much better once Lugar is gone. I’ve never forgiven that old RINO for hanging-up on me. I was telling him what a rotten job he was doing and he said “if you think you can do it better, then do it”,, and he hung-up. The nerve!! LOL

Libs only know abortion, legalize drugs and destroy America at all costs. They want to bring about their version of a socialist utopia led by the Grand Poobah obama.

They must be defeated. If they want a Revolution then and keep poking us in the eye then we will be happy to oblige them on all counts.

'Game Change's' Top Stars and Execs: $200K to Democratic Causes, $0 to Republicans

Key point:

"The two major sources for the film and the book on which it was based, McCain senior adviser Steve Schmidt and communications director Nicole Wallace, attempt to make themselves look good---as the "responsible ones" behind an effort that may have been a winning one if only everyone had just listened to them. Please. In order to save their own skins, they threw Palin under the bus in the most rude and low-rent ways. That actually makes them MORE disgraceful than the leftwingers who made this Obama propaganda piece."

Why did Sarah quit her governorship? She had all the talent in the world, excellent speaking and debating skills, and an incredible ability to connect with crowds.

If she had stayed on to become a competent governor, then announced for prez, she might be running circles around Romney-Gingrich-Santorum.

But instead she quit.

As of next Tuesday, HBO is out of my house. Changed Cable Providers and made sure the HBO / Cinemax (they own them too) package was eliminated.

Once the changeover is complete, I will be calling HBO to inform them that I purposely canceled them due to their latest smear of Palin in “Game Change” and the previous (if not ongoing) comments by Bill Maher on his HBO show.

I should have done this a long time ago, but at least I'm doing it now.

Exactly. Women who walk the walk on life issues, like Sarah, like Michele Bachmann with her 19 foster kids, drive the left INSANE.

They have rabbit ears for the slightest hint of hypocrisy, because the modern Left is all Alinsky all the time, and the search for hypocrisy is Alinsky 101. So when conservative women aren’t hypocritical it’s like a crack in the world.

Abortion queen Julianne Moore as the lead. What did you expect? Of course this was going to be insulting to Palin. A conservative would have to be brain dead to watch this movie.

Palin had every asset, every ability, an endless number of supporters. I loved Sarah Palin at the GOP convention.

But then she quit.

Unfortunately, Palin’s quirky quitting was one of the best things that ever happened to the RATS and Dimmocrats. We lost our biggest weapon.

If she had stayed, how would she pay her $500,000.00 in legal bills caused by frivolous ethics charges? You guys must not read.

I just heard that your state inheritance tax is being phased out. Good for you.
The reason I posted what I did was because of a couple Hoosier maroons I stickpoke with on other forums. I have a good appreciation for Indiana as a whole but I do know that you have at least 2 maroons in the state. “;^o

Dude, you may not be aware that the Palins weren’t rich. Combined, Sarah and Todd made only about $200,000 a year maximum. They even had to take a second mortgage out on their house. Also, look at what she had to bear. Blamed for the Tuscon shooting, comedians and pundits calling her all sorts of nasty names, like c*** and t***. Take a look at these two threads. You might find them interesting.

Right. By state law at the time,

a) anyone could file a suit against the Alaska governor

b) the governor was required to pay all legal expenses for defending out of pocket (i.e. no state funds allowed)

c) The Dems sent up a team of vermin explicitly to take her out as a political force with nonsense suits -- e.g. the one alleging corruption because of her husband Todd wearing a jacket with a particular corporate logo in the Iron Dog, even though he'd been doing such long before Sarah was governor, or the one alleging that her legal defense fund was itself illegal.

But as a liberal troll, you already knew that.

What did YOU do to help defend her?

Cheers!

How am I a liberal? I support the conservative cause through and through. I support great conservatives like Sarah Palin. That is why I am so disappointed that she quit. Expressing my disappointment is in no way a liberal position.

Liberal wanted her to quit. It was huge benefit to liberals for her to quit.

If you were a conservative you wouldn't repeatedly troll people over Palin's exit from the governorship with disingenuous comparisons to Lincoln and Reagan.

You wouldn't be doing the happy dance over her exit.

You wouldn't have answered my charge by asking in effect "What makes you say that?"

QED.

How I am doing a “happy dance” over her exit? I was very disappointed when she resigned. I realized it was a fatal blow to her presidential chances. I was not happy at all.

Disingenuous comparison to Reagan and Lincoln? Hardly. My comparison was quite apt. Those leaders put up with a lot more than Governor Palin. Being shot, for example. It’s pathetic that Palin would resign over such a trivial issue like legal bills.
