HBO released its first official trailer for its new film Game Change about the 2008 presidential election. Julianne Moore takes on the role of Sarah Palin and the movie doesnt hold back any punches.
The short trailer features Sarah Palins infamous I can see Russia from my house flub and paints McCains former running mate as more an actress than a politician.

This new HBO film follows John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, from his selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, to their ultimate defeat in the general election. “Game Change” premieres on March 10th.
Dummies - Sarah never said she could see Russia from her house
I seem to recall that Palin said that Russia could be seen from Alaska. The “I can see Russia from my house” quote is from a Saturday Night Live sketch, isn’t it?
But, overall, I’m sure that the HBO treatment of her is quite respectful....
That won’t stop the f***ers from lying about Sarah. They don’t care about the truth, all they care about is destroying a good person.
Yes, that line came from Tina Fey, not from Sarah Palin.
Not that it will make any difference to those who want to ridicule her.
Homo Box Office
What is the essence of an actor’s life?
Answer: fakery. Everything is artificial. This is why most of them are liberals. Liberalism offers false authenticity to those who have turned away from the true substance of life.
And this is why I cancelled my cable subscription. I no longer support HBO or Comcast Cable.
I actually viewed the trailer. They get the quote right in the movie, but the synopsis that is linked gets it wrong. Nevertheless, it still looks like a hit job.
They are just so darn scared poopless of this woman aren’t they..WOW for someone supposedly so irrelevant they just can’t let her go..they just can’t stand seeing a HAPPILY married woman, a great family, not sucking up to liberal BS and begging for handouts
That's all it is about.
You are quite right, they are f***ers. They are truly vile and vicious.
I left a comment letting them know that I would not be watching this movie..
Hollywood is such a loser.
Since cancelling the cable service, my life has been vastly improved. Television robs your time while rotting the mind.
What could go wrong?! /sarc.

Another fabrication from film-makers. No surprise.
Dollars to doughnuts this truth-challenged writer knows that it was Tina Fey on SNL and not Sarah who said that, and used it anyway.
WOW what a cast..stick a bunch of brain dead liberals in a room and see what kind of BS they can come up with. Still waiting for them to do a movie about Obama and his buddy buddy Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright..and let’s not forget Larry Sinclair
Has she looked?
What utter bull S*$T.
Truly. All radical Hollywierd Leftists.
You should be banned....you ate nothing but a troll of the worst degree..and your a tool
I don’t think he’s a troll, but you’re right he is a tool.
The mutt playing Palin looks nothing like her.
The trailer shows that the movie does get the Palin "Russia" quote exactly correct, but the immediate reaction of horror by her staff is idiotic. There was nothing even remotely incorrect in her quote, and it was at least passably relevant to the question asked.
The quote only became a source of mockery after it was bastardized by Tina Fey and then Fey's quote was accepted by the public as a Palin quote.
Lastly, a trailer is a commercial for a movie, so it's really annoying to have to sit through a commercial before I get to see the commercial. That's my last visit to that site.
Wow, you are the most obnoxious freeper. And I hardly ever post to FR, mostly read. Had to break my silence.
LOL, I wouldn’t even watch HBO if it was free!
Not even counting Oliver Stone and the ridiculous "Nixon" or the zillions of Watergate flops, who remembers "Skulls" in 2000. The "thriller" that tried to pretend Yale's Skull and Bones society had sinister secrets and murderous rituals?
It was the first official anti-Bush grenade thrown at President Bush, and yet the previous 8 years of the crimes, misdemeanors and betrayal to China, only gave us "Primary Colors", which noted that Bill Clinton was just a lovable, doughy hound dog. Hey, woman love the guy. What are ya gonna do?
I'd love to count all the anti-GOP projects produced by Hollywood, some of the worst being: "Recount", "W", "The Day After Tomorrow" and "Lil Bush".
So.. has she looked? That really seems to stir you up.
you ate nothing but a troll
I had a chicken taco earlier, thanks.
and your a tool
I canceled HBO decades back.
It seems obvious to me that a movie about a hero whom the viewers can admire will do much better than a movie about a political enemy whom the viewers are expected to scorn.
Why would anyone want to watch a movie like that? The libs would have to be pretty sick to want to sit there on their couches for an hour or more and watch a show about someone they hate.
Oh, wait . . . . Liberals are not like thee and me.
There was some Bildeburger goofball on this site who assured me that that movie would never be released. He argued with me that "the powers that rule the world" would have to shut it down because it exposed too much.
I don't remember his name, but he was unintentionally funny. I think the movie involved magic from the skull of Geronimo, that Bush stole for the secret society!
I have to go....I don’t want to waste my time with trash
They know that. Saul Alinksy tactics don’t require the smears to be truthful - just relentless.
I was going to watch the trailer, but they had a 30 second commercial in front of the commercial they wanted you to watch for the movie.
“Celebrity News Author” Dan Evon, you ignorant slut...
Haha, I only remember it was HORRIBLE!
I am not American and observe US politics from abroad (Ireland). There are a few things I would say about this film. First, this will be one of the few hollywood biopics where the actress playing the female lead is nowhere near as beautiful as the real life subject, Sarah Palin. The second thing that amuses me me no end is the condecension of Ms Moore, that, while Governor Palin had her brilliant moments, but ‘did not have the experience to lead the country’.
That one really tickled my funny bone. Compared to whom? Barrack Obama? Hillary Clinton? Try as I might I could not unearth a solitary experience or any substantive accomplishment on the part of either of these specimens that was ‘relevant’ to running anything, let alone being president. The only thought more frightening than having Barrack Obama at the heart of the Presidency was the thought that a buffon like Joe Biden was being placed ‘within a heartbeat’ of that role.
The third thing about this film is that the characterization of Palin is based on the book Game Change. The sources are people like campaign managers Stephen Scmidht and Nicola Wallace who needed a scapegoat to cover up their own hopeless ineptitude. The other sources were ‘anonymous’ staffers who were, by reliable accounts, surrogates for Mitt Romney who were anxious to kneecap Palin coming out of the gate for 2012.
How Americans can allow themselves to be fooled by people as hollow as Obama and Romney leaves me in despair, and I can only pray that in the coming months all that is deep and wise in the American people will re-assert itself before next November. If Sarah Palin has done nothing else in her life, her exposure of the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of the mass media and entertainment industry will rank high.
As always: you are a jerk.
And Hollyweird wonders why attendance at first run movies at the box office has been falling for the past 15 to 20 years.
No one wants to buy the Leftist mass media’s newspapers, their movies, or anything else they produce.
Like a little kid: you are name-calling.
You first came to my attention when you were trashing (and I’m not making this up, folks!) GEERT WILDERS. The one man who is fighting Islamic radicalism in Europe. It taught me everything I need to know about you.
Two things I take issue with:
1. " The only thought more frightening than having Barrack Obama at the heart of the Presidency was the thought that a buffon like Joe Biden was being placed within a heartbeat of that role." No, it's the only thing AS frightening, etc. etc.!
2. "How Americans can allow themselves to be fooled by people as hollow as Obama and Romney leaves me in despair ...." Democrats like Obama, and depraved politicians like Romney, PLAY DIRTY. They cheat -- they have to cheat because if they didn't, they'd LOSE, and they'd LOSE because the majority of Americans see through such hollow, destructive clowns. WE ARE THE MAJORITY. It's why they have to cheat -- they's lack the votes to win if they didn't.
But WHAT a wonderful, well-written, spot-on post! Spot-on observations of the American Hollywood scene in politics!
I do not find European politicians of any stripe to be a person to be fawned over.
If you truly paid attention you would realize that I object to fawning over people.
Try to pay attention, you’ll do just fine.
It’s not name-calling, it’s describing you. Calling you a poopy head would be name calling, since I don’t think anybody actually thinks you’re a poopy head. You are a jerk though. You know you are and you reveal in it.
I’ll say it again: you are a jerk, a major jerk and you undermine everything that is good about FR. Why they keep you hanging around is beyond me...
"They're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."
And this is, in fact, completely true.
