UPDATES WITH VIDEO: True Blood may be into its final season but the HBO show wasnt treating its likely last Comic-Con appearance with anything but a ravenous appetite and a bit of bite. Specifically it was former GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin who got chomped. Shell weigh in on anything, said cast member Kristin Bauer van Straten disdainfully of Palin revealing that she turned down the attempt HBO made to get the ex-Alaska governor on the show for its most recent broadcast. Besides a bloodbath at a fictional fundraiser for real-life Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the July 20 episode had several digs at the GOP including one character refer to herself as a Republican c**t.
Needless to say Palin wasnt impressed.
The brilliant minds of True Blood were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman in person instead of just all conservative women in general, Palin revealed to Breitbart earlier this week. Their offer wasnt presented in any negative way, perhaps to benefit from a surprise factor after the guest appearance. I turned them down anyway. HBO confirmed that the offer in a statement that casting directors for the show reached out to Ms. Palins representative but did not receive a response.
Its sweet many many years later Warner Bros. At Comic-Con International 2014 that Ive made her angry, I had fun doing it, said the actress who plays vampire Pam Ravenscroft of first hearing Palins name and the way she reacted to the cablers offer. Van Stratens remark got huge applause from the thousands in Ballroom 20 of the San Diego Convention Center.
Besides a brief mention of Republicans by van Straten on the panel in reference to the recent episode, there was nothing else said of real GOPers that have figured prominently in TB lately . This season has seen a reference to one characters strained friendship with former First Lady Laura Bush and the Cruz fundraiser at the George W. Bush Presidential Library.
Ted Cruz ✔ @tedcruz
Of all the places I never thought to be mentioned, HBO's
True Blood would have to be near the top

Of course there was more than politics on the menu at Comic-Con for TB today. The cast sent most of the time remembering the past seasons and the end of the show. In fact, before todays panel even started, the series showed a specially made Goodbye Sucks video starring key cast members. It meant the world to us that you made this show what it was, said Deborah Ann Woll to big cheers. With similar remarks from Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell and more, the short video ended with a blown kiss from Anna Paquin. Debuting on June 22, the last episode of the last season True Blood will air on August 24.
Now well into its seventh and last cycle, the SDCC vet brought not only Moyer, Paquin, Trammell, Woll and van Straten to the fans in the flesh, but also EP Brian Buckner along with cast members Nathan Parsons, Carrie Preston, Chris Bauer, Anna Camp, Nelsan Ellis and Rutina Wesley, who got huge applause as did her blood dripping satin jacket. The panel ended with a brief self-titled True To The End video previewing the final 5 episodes of True Blood. Check it out:
Now I’m real happy I dumped cable, satellite and HBO et al.
More should do that.
My brother watches damn near everything (or used to) and couldn’t make it to the second episode.
I don’t get that channel.
So because Palin wouldn’t let the show pimp her for ratings she’s a bad person, ah really?
The TV show made a political statement about Ted Cruz and conservatives, and this airhead thinks that they should just shut up and take it.
Poor little babies are upset that a woman (of whom none of them are worthy) wouldn’t hold still for their sandbag-drop.
Seriously, every time I see her it reminds me of a Peruvian girl I dated. Beautiful total blonde with a tan and Indian accents, but she had one bit of plastic surgery done...by a butcher and it was depressing to see. She kept saying “Oh those scars will heal” to which I never responded, “No, those do not heal...” Fortunately it was not on her face, which is probably still beautiful.
I watched the first season, as I really enjoy the books (The books are totally non-political and much less gay and less porny). The first season was decent, but by the second season I was watching it for the sheer WTF-ery of how badly they screwed up the books.
The above mentioned character, Pam, actually had the best line that sums up my reaction to this series: “I am so sick of Sookie and her magic fairy vagina”.
HA! Fat chance, ye two-faced hypocrite phony.
Liberals always think that they can make nasty comments about Conservatives and we are just supposed to sit back and enjoy it..yet when a Conservative says something about a liberal the left poops their pants
I think the one who is paid to read the words of others is a little confused. To the extent Palin might have been perturbed regarding what was said, Palin understands the parrots who are paid to recite the words aren't the ones who are speaking. I doubt Palin should be able to select the actress from a three person lineup.
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Perhaps this has something to do with the reaction Conservatives receive from the demons on the Left.
Never heard of this so called actress
Brainless, whiny Hollywood lefty? I think there would be a bigger blood spray than typical in True Blood after Mark gets done.
Just hand her a golf tee.
Tru Blood must be desperate for viewers in their last season.
Some C list actress trashing Sarah Palin....glad to see “irrelevant” Sarah Palin has so much power in a lefty’s head:))
