Reporting from Tempe, Ariz. Count one less viewer in the audience when HBO airs "Game Change," its dramatization of the 2008 presidential campaign, which features a scathingly negative portrayal of vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin.
"This new movie that comes out, (people) ask me if I'm gonna watch it," Arizona Sen. John McCain told a group of Republican activists on Saturday. "I tell them it'll be a cold day in Gila Bend, Arizona."
(For the uninitiated, Gila Bend is a Sonoran Desert town that often appears on weather maps as the nation's hot spot).
The made-for-TV movie, based on the best-seller by political writers Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, is set for broadcast on March 10.

Juan isn’t the only one who won’t be watching it.

I also heard the book is about the entire campaign - both parties, all the players in the primaries and their teams.
The movie's only about Palin. I guess Hillary and Huckabee don't get ratings.
Where was McLame’s defense of Sarah in 2008? I never heard him come to her defense. McLame is a phony now, and look who he is supporting...one more establishment looser!
John didn’t fire Schmidt when he absolutely should have. “Standing by” Sarah after the fact is way too little, way too late.
