I just finished watching “Game Change” on HBO, now I know why McCain/Palin lost the election, HBO just told me. The home of Real Time got together a cast of Hollywood leftists as actors and producers to put together an honest realistic (cough cough) account of that crazy bitch from Wasilla. I had no idea that Sarah was such an egomaniac, unbalanced/unstable, prone to catatonic stupors, and dumber then a lamppost. She honestly did not know who our enemies were in WW2, and thought Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11. Oh, and vindictive as hell.
We get the usual “she was not properly vetted”, although why, and why the rush is not explained very well, except that they needed a woman on the ticket. We also get a rare glimpse of John McCain, as a foul mouthed, weak, easily handled candidate who tried to stay above the fray but in doing so had no opinions or sway in dealing with the handlers.
Christianity, Dick Cheney, Wall Street, corporate America, they all get shellacked, even though these were supposedly all Republicans, working for a Republican candidate, and who all admired Ronald Reagan.
I didn’t read the book (surprise) and doubt anyone else did here, but I wonder to what extent even that was embellished and inflated to present to a HBO audience. Normally stuff like this doesn’t come out until election time. I guess Hollywood is feeling pretty good about their boy’s chances come November.
