Skip to comments.'Game Change' -- Anatomy of a Smear of Sarah Palin (Mittbots and Hollywood in collusion)
Posted on 02/22/2012 1:58:49 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Thanks to some remarkable reporting from Big Hollywood, it has become increasingly clear the upcoming HBO movie "Game Change" is less a political melodrama than an all-out attempt to destroy the person and reputation of Sarah Palin.
The movie is based on a poorly researched book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, and it was criticized at the time of its publication by Howard Kurtz, then a media reporter for the Washington Post, and the New York Times for its overreliance on unsourced "deep background" interviews that were difficult to verify.
Two of those sources have been revealed, according to the Los Angeles Times, as Steve Schmidt and Nichole Wallace, John McCain campaign operatives widely regarded as being responsible for McCain's defeat in 2008. The suspicion is Schmidt and Wallace are attempting to shift the blame for the debacle on Palin. The movie excises the Palin story from the book and then adds to it.
For instance, the movie makes the claim Palin did not know the Queen of England does not have governing power, which resides in the prime minister. But Big Hollywood reports an interview Palin had at the time on the Sean Hannity show in which she expresses her great admiration for Margaret Thatcher, who was the prime minister of Great Britain.
The movie also depicts Palin having a nervous breakdown during the campaign. But as Palin's trip director Jason Recher notes, there was no breakdown. It didn't happen. HBO just made it up....

McCain vet Charlie Black: Nicolle Wallace's Palin claim 'bizarre'
Flashback, Oct. 25th: "These people are going to try and shred her after the campaign to divert blame from themselves"
This “movie” was made because the left assumed Sarah would run for President, this was made so they could trash her in the assumption she would run. No one watches HBO anyway then far left kooks so really, no one else is going to give a crap about this disgusting film. Nicole Wallace and Steve Schmidt are Romneybots who from Day 1 were pissed that McCain did not pick Romney as his VP, from that instant they did everything in their power to destroy the campaign, and McCain did nothing to stop it
Dittos on all you said!
Romney/McCain are equally disgusting!
As if Sarah Palin was capable of a nervous breakdown! (An old term, totally outdated as these boobs should know.)
No matter what they say, or print, or film, about Sarah, the dogs will bark and her caravan will move on.
“Romney/McCain are equally disgusting!”
Bingo! I’ve been shouting that for over 10 years.
if it wasn’t for PALIN I wouldn’t have voted for mc cain.
Tom Hanks and Ed Harris are executive producers for this piece of trash.
I keep saying that as long as people pay their hard earned cash to see Hollyweird movies and watch Hollyweird TV, we only support and encourage their liberal, perverted, corrupt lifestyle.
Let them have to cook their own meals, wash their own clothes, clean their own houses or mow their own lawns for a month (WITHOUT conservative dollars) and we’ll see how quickly the looney left in Hollyweird becomes the most conservative of conservatives!!
Gov Palin is going to be the next POTUS after a brokered convention. This movie is evidence that her enemies know it.
A picture in my mind. Two elephants one obviously old, broken tusk, ragged ears and limping. the other a younger one with shiny tusks, a gleam in her eye and standing tall. Old GOP being shouldered aside by new GOP and her name is Sarah.
As much as I love and respect Gov. Palin, I’m not sure that she will be the next POTUS. The press has done a LOT of damage with their smears of her and a LOT of people have bought into their lies.
Personally, I’d love to see her in the WH as the president, but I’m not ready to put my money where my heart is just yet. There are a lot of miles to go between now and November and a lot of stuff can (and probably will) happen!
