Skip to comments.HBO On Defense: Writer Danny Strong Claims No Agenda Behind Palin Film
Posted on 01/14/2012 11:39:57 PM PST by SMGFan
HBO is one of the most liberal entertainment outlets ever conceived, but at the very least you had to respect them for not trying to hide that agenda. So why go all spineless now? Part of HBOs absurd, intelligence-insulting denial is simply disingenuous. The networks agenda took a pretty big hit when Governor Palin chose not to run in 2012, but the timing of this docu-drama, which is based on a political book written my John Heilamann and Mark Halperin, was always obvious: Drop this bomb in the heat of the GOP primary.

The episode he starred in was postponed April 1999 due to the Columbine shootings.
His character later developed to be part of an evil trio with Adam Busch ( liberal) and Tom Lenk (also liberal) who took on the Slayer.
And yes, Joss Whedon ( Buffy creator and Avengers movie director) was a big Obama supporter in 2008.
The thing I can’t get past with this thing is that this has to be the first time in film history where a real person is played by an actress who is LESS good-looking than the source.
They know she’ll be president one day and think they can get back on her good side.
How can a network that created “ John Adams” and “Band of Brothers” turn around and puke stuff like this out?
Once my free HBO runs out, I am dropping it like a bad habit.
I did the last time I dropped them,It doesnt do any good. They get more than enough cash from morons who dont care about fairness.
Shows like this and that pantsload Bill Maher is the reason that unless I get a free HBO thing from my cable provider I dont bother with them.
When Dishnetwork recently gave me a free “complementary” trial of HBO, I called them and demanded they take it off my subscription, free or not. I did not want even the chance that I would play one second of that garbage on my television. I have been boycotting HBO since they gave Bill Maher a show.
Strong wrote HBO’s Recount about 2000 Bush vs Gore as well.
And I remember another major piece written by gay Trig Truther scumbag Andrew Sullivan after she told Levin that she wasn't running in which Sullivan openly admitted trying to stop her and was proud of what he had done.
All of these writers, pundits, journalists, and columnists (many of them part of the gay mafia) were all in cohoots with one another, and I'm sure there's another secret Journolost-type forum out there where they all coordinated with each other.
Easy, you never heard of the Angry Little Man Bill Maher?? HBO is the Company supporting Communist Thugs like this. InFact the Vast Majority of Hollywood and Th entertainment industry is so far to the left that to them Joe Stalin was a Moderate Republican.
And tell them WHY! (I always love when I can do that!)
Don't underestimate her. She would surely last longer than one day.
I'll bet she could do a half term at least.
I hope nobody at the FR pays for HBO.

Kind of like the law of diminishing returns with a dash of “photo copy fade”. Every successive attempt to copy the original gets worse and worse.

Yes ladies and gentleman, that was humblegunner, noted anti-Palin hack who trolls FR for Palin entries to add sniping remarks and otherwise useless comments.
We call him “Son of Pissant”.
He knows why Palin left the governorshp in Alaska. He knows about the MSM hack pieces, but for humblegunner it’s not about the facts, it’s about shilling (either as a hobby or for a candidate/cause).
He’s here like clockwork. Think of it as a racoon coming here every night to raid the garbage cans.
Thanks, I’m here all week. Try the veal.
No special rates for n00bs, sorry.
Every successive attempt to copy the original gets worse and worse.
Just like the Obama birth certificate or rather
the certificate of live birth, or whatever.
I'm confident we'll see your continued flaming irrationality in the future.
Are you saying that any thread about Palin should only be commented on by her fans?
Crying "PDS" hardly addresses anyone's objection to her.
Would you prefer that everyone simply bow down to her or shut up, one or the other?
She isn't the Pope you know.
And you're a far cry from being original as a comedian.
If you're writing your own stuff I recommend you keep your day job as a waiter.
I have a feeling this isn't going to be pretty.
“Crying “PDS” hardly addresses anyone’s objection to her.”
Your objection to her in light of known facts is PDS.
“Would you prefer that everyone simply bow down to her or shut up, one or the other?”
Standing with her to get this country back is more of what I had in mind.
“She isn't the Pope you know.”
If she were,I wouldn’t be supporting her
Too bad you support S&$T.
You should have me zotted.
From “The Last Boy Scout”: “Sure like to meet bit** that f’ed you up.”
Yes, her doing occasional commentary at Fox will save us.
She's a freakin' hero.
Adams series got pc preachy too....tried to make Abigail look like an abolitionist
And Jefferson like an old world aristocrat
Not to mention having them shagging on the dinner table
Most common HBO offense is homosexuality gratuitously inserted into every story regardless of plot
Place must be governed by fags and minorities of every stripe
U know she blogs too...lol
She's a freakin’ hero.”
Just as I suspected,the Chief Flaming PDS'r has no clue
He is to my desire to donate as Helen Thomas is to an erection.
Truth really hurts. Wake up stupid.
Yeah, I watch HBO. In your world, would you have me sent to a reeducation camp?
Sarah’s brother responds to the HBO hit piece:
Hi guys (and gals),
I thought I’d share something with you that you might enjoy. A friend of mine in Alabama told me to check out the trailer for the new HBO show, Game Change. Now as I recall, that book was written about the race between McCain and Obama, but somehow, HBO decided to make it into a Sarah story. Anyway, I watched the trailer tonight with my two sons (eleven and eight years old). When the trailer gets to the end, the actress portraying Sarah says something like, “We have to win this thing; I so don’t want to go back to Alaska”. Both of my kids burst out laughing and the oldest said, “dad, that’s crazy! That doesn’t even sound like Sarah, and you know how much she loves Alaska”.
I know all of you Sarah supporters know that this movie is full of bull; just thought you might like to hear the perspectives of two of her nephews here in Alaska that know her just a little bit better than some Hollywood writer.
