Skip to comments.Palin’s version: Undercuts HBO’s ‘Game Change’ with happy pix dump
Posted on 02/19/2012 11:49:36 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Sarah Palin is moving fast to discredit an unflattering HBO movie.
Palin is releasing dozens of behind-the-scenes photos from the 2008 presidential campaign that show her smiling and laughing with the real-life characters including John McCain and his hard-charging campaign manager, Steven Schmidt portrayed in the upcoming movie Game Change.
A link to the photo gallery 67 in all, under the headline Game Change We Can Believe In appeared over the weekend on the home page of SarahPAC.com, Palins political fundraising arm.
The movie, set to air next month. stars Ed Harris as McCain, Julianne Moore as Palin and Woody Harrelson as Schmidt.
Last week on Fox News, Palin dismissed the movie as a waste of time.
But now it appears she is stepping up her campaign to paint as fiction the movie that portrays her as an unprepared diva.
The movie paints her as angry and embarrassed by Tina Feys famous send-up of her. But the photos show her laughing and enjoying herself backstage at SNL. as she rehearsed for her October 2008 appearance on the comedy show.
In the movie, Harrelsons character is shown as Palins biggest detractor. But in a photo captioned All Smiles, Palin and Schmidt are seen beaming after the debate with Joe Biden....

Here’s a link to the photos:
Those pictures are great. She sure pumped some life into that old coot’s campaign. I believe they could have had it, but McCain screwed it up.
There was only one reason for this piece of caca to be made, to head off what the libertards thought was a surefire Palin presidential run. They even brought out their mental heavyweight
, Huff-N-Puff Woody Harrelson
I forget her name (I think she just won a bunch of grammys), but some singer created Palin with her huge success. (She was on SNL the same night!). It was on a FR thread.
Liberals and RINOS cant stand the fact that Sarah is HAPPY..they made this film preparing for a Palin presidential run so that they could screw her over, that did not happen. The McCain campaign was an epic fail because McCain was a HUGE bore who went around saying how “We have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency” that is when I knew Obama had won..McCain NEVER fought, not once, Sarah did all the fighting for him, and what did she get for her efforts, backstabbing from McCain’s RINO buddies who were pissed that he did not pick Romney to be his VP..I guess in their warped minds, if Romney wasn’t going to be the VP, no one would, I bet they all voted for Obama, I wouldn’t put it past them
If you heard Palin’s CPAC speech, then you know that she is far ahead of the Demonrats, the RINOS, the GOP, and most columnists, talking heads.
I wouldn’t want to play poker with her. Behind her beautiful smile is a huntress, be it moose, Democrats, or RINOS.
She’ll take them down, gut them, fillet them, cook them, and hang their hides on the wall, all before they know what hit them.
She is like the barracuda - it strikes from out of nowhere and you are “lunch”.
That would be Adele, she was on SNL the night that Palin was on it, she has said in many interviews that she credits Palin for her success since so many people watched that episode and got to hear her voice
Thanks - I just listened to a couple of her songs. Not my style, but she has a powerful voice and catchy rhythms. And I listened all the way through without turning them off like I usually do with so much of the new music!
i love adele
i have not followed a female pop singer since Bobbie Gentry
thank you for the link...it is a sin what her enemies do against her, but she is with the Lord, and they will soon learn He takes no prisoners
These people only smile for real when they stick a knife in your back.
Julianne Moore as Palin? Jeez, Moore’s not even close to being as hot as Palin. HBO FAIL!
and they couldn’t use Tina Fey any more because she is actually pretty, they got the over bite Moore to play the role.....not a pretty lady at all....
Hollywood never puts out any political movie except for revisionist reasons.
Why anyone would believe the enemies of Palin (Harrelson) would want to participate in an honest portrayal defies logic.
More interesting is the question why Hollywood worried about, planned on injuring Palin at this moment in an election campaign. Is it because they thought she would be a candidate, so they wanted to be prepared, but also had money invested so couldn’t back off when they discoverd they were wrong?
Do they want to discredit her influence on this primary season?
Are they worried about some impact she might have on the general election?
Never heard of Adele until the Grammy’s (but didn’t watch).
I’m not sheltered, but can’t figure how I never heard of her!
And still haven’t heard her sing - unless I didn’t know - - -
Feel so out of it!
Yeah right, no coordination or agenda there...
After reading “Going Rogue”, I came to utterly despise Schmidt. And, McCain should have fired him on the spot for his disrespectful, arrogant and childish behavior toward Governor Palin and her family. I would have been just (however, sadly huge fodder for the lib-dim media) if Todd would have beat Schmidt to a pulp. McCain is a real life war hero, but not a real conservative - Sarah’s sense of loyalty toward him despite their differences - and they are significant - is admirable. John SHOULD have - in the most stern and strong way available - put a stop to Schmidt’s BS.
sure is easy on the eyes....
Hint to Romney: Compare your crowds to Sarah's, either in numbers or in enthusiasm. Isn't it time to give up, or are you like the creepy stalker who can't accept the fact that we just aren't attracted to you?
From my mind to your pen........Thanks !
McCain didn’t want it. Any “screw-up” was intentional.
If he hadn’t muzzled Palin in the final weeks, she could have dragged him across the finish line first.
Schmidt IS a schmuck. I was his sign holder in the press room after Debate 08 @ Hofstra.
Him and his lap dog biatch told me to go away, I was “no longer needed”.
So I did. I stood there like an a$$. One of the coordinators asked me why I wasn’t w/ Schmidt and I told him. He was like “What??”.
He told me to go stand behind Schmidt and not to listen to them. So I did and again they told me to go away...this time she was nasty about it.
I told them “no, I can’t go away. He told me to stand behind Schmidt holding the sign”...and I wouldn’t go away.
The little a$$holes ran behind the ropes where no one was allowed to go.
So I just hung out with the new friends I made.
I didn’t tell anyone there about the incident because I didn’t want to put a damper on things.
Damned straight! Without her, McCain's defeat would make Fritz Mondale's 13-525 EV loss seem like a squeaker.
Schmuck? You’re way too nice. He is a traitor, and will someday find himself tiptoeing into the ninth circle of hell. Regardless of what he may or may not have understood or thought about Palin there is always the option of saying nothing, and moving on. Hurting her hurts the Tea Party, hurting the Tea Party, hurts the cause, hurting the cause guarantees an epoch of darkness in this land.
The only ones to uplift my spirits were the Conservative Party, from my home town.
Join the club! I did a search on youtube. I was surprised. The songs were good, and the videos not full of sex and stuff. And she obviously is making money on her voice, not any goofy gimmicks.
What a spectacular set of photos from her historic run. And what a fabulous family the Palins are—so normal and yet so extraordinary.
