MEGHAN MCCAIN: My Family & Sarah Palin To Be Nothing Short Of Crucified By HBO's 'GAME CHANGE'

MEGHAN MCCAIN: I Expect My Family And Sarah Palin To Be Nothing Short Of Crucified By HBO's 'GAME CHANGE'

HBO is adapting a miniseries based on Game Change, the book about the 2008 election.

But as Hollywood casts liberal actors to play all the parts, Meghan McCain doubts that it will be an accurate portrayal of what actually happened.

Game Change, the infamous bestseller written by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, has plagued anyone directly associated with the 2008 election cycle.

The first time I heard about the book was within weeks after Obama was elected—my former press person from the campaign told me Mark Halperin, a man I had only heard of in name and was not an embed on the campaign, wanted to conduct an interview about “what really happened.”

Reporters aren’t generally known for their sensitivity and tact, but I can remember thinking, nice timing sir. They also asked everyone from my mother and her chief of staff to Rick Davis and Steve Schmidt for an interview. The only person that confirmed actually giving such an interview was my father’s longtime speechwriter and “alter ego” Mark Salter. I still have no idea what he was thinking.

Read more! Very bad language.......LOL.

I’m touched by her concern for how Sarah will be treated. Now, where did I put that barf bag?

Why would anyone think it would be flattering? But Miss McPiggy, you are certainly no help.

We already know what happened. Who would want to watch this?

She’s only worried about her father’s portrayal and he’s going to be made to look very baaaad. Just wait until the actress for Cindy is cast.......LOL.

Good Lord, what a whiner.

I do not believe i have ever heard this young woman utter one declarative statement that made sense. She is a child...and a spoiled one, evidently.

This is funny.

And her fellow progressive Republican, Scott Brown, is complaining about how he’s being portrayed by the left, too.

Since Sally Struthers is too old, I say Snooki from Jersey Shore with a blonde wig would suffice

I was trying to think of the name of the actress that played Meathead’s wife -— but she’s too old. Sally Struthers? Recall that she gained a lot of weight after the series ended....LOL.

Unfortunately Chris Farley is not available for the part.

I think John Goodman in a blonde wig would work as well....but I think he’s lost a lot of weight recently, so that might not be such a great idea.

Sally may still be alive, even after eating all that food that was supposed to go to the little poor kids.

Might be a good fit for Meghan.

It has to be a good actress to portray Meghan. They have to be able to convey the pure contempt and embarrassment Meghan felt for having to pretend she was being nice to those crumb crunchers of Daddy’s running mate.

Oh the horror of it all.

I am back to Cathy Bates. Perfect!

My vote goes to Snookie from Jersey Shore. It will raise the IQ of both shows.

Meghan McCain doesn't give a rat's patoot about how Sarah Palin will be portrayed in an HBO miniseries about her father's failed presidential campaign but she is (rightly) worried that she'll be portrayed as the overfed, whining, malicious twerp she is. Pretending to be concerned that Sarah Palin will be 'crucified' is Meghan's way of getting attention for her whining. I'm sure Sarah Palin isn't too concerned about a TV series that will attempt, no doubt, to portray Palin as a dumb, vain, harridan. However, unlike Meghan McCain, Sarah Palin knows who she is and doesn't need 'validation' from the leftist show business industry.

I'm guessing that Meghan is only concerned because HBO portrays her as a fat, slutty, dingbat.

I can't imagine her caring about anyone else’s feelings - unless it somehow adversely affects her in some way.

I wonder if they will even Bridget McCain?

Her loudmouth sister seems to have sucked all the attention from her, I can imagine in 20 years Bridget might actually turn out to be a decent human being.
