Open Thread For HBO’s Politics Movie ‘Palin & McCain Lose An Election’

HEHNGNN?Tonight: HBO is debuting its Hollywood motion picture about how John McCain waddled over to the Google machine sometime in the summer of 2008 to find a “hot political babe” to run the country after he croaked during his first 10 minutes as president. He settled on an Alaskan lady who shot guns, which was the entirety of his research. She turned out to be an idiot, and she continues to shame and grift the nation to this very day. Here is your open thread for the Wolf “Like Pauline Kael But Good” Blitzer-approved GAME CHANGE, starting at 9, which is basically now. Ol’ Walnuts has been asleep on his Ambien since 6 p.m., so he won’t be watching. ALSO: Here’s an unreadable Wonkette Archives post from 2008 about all these bickering McCain campaign characters, if you’d like to read it.

    The best part of the Game Change movie is at the beginning where the house falls on Sarah's sister.

    1. Loaded_Pants

      Great, now I'm recasting the Wizard of Oz.
      Tin Man = Romney.
      Scarecrow = Ron Paul.
      Cowardly Lion = Newt.
      Flying Monkeys = Tea Party Voters.
      Who's Santorum? Who's playing the Wizard? Suggestions?

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        Pulling the levers behind the scenes? That's got to be the Koch Brothers.

        Obviously, though, we need to revise the story a bit, to accomodate the Cool & Funky Black Warlock of the North.

  2. GuanoFaucet

    In honor of the Snowbilly Grifter, I'm going to quit watching the movie halfway through.

  3. Barb

    To counter the fact that HBO is showing Game Change tonight one of those off stations is showing The Undefeated tonight. Obviously, they are unfamiliar with HBO and the fact that they show their movies over and over again.

        1. deelzebub

          I was going more for the why as in, "Why, for fuck's sake, did you inflict this shrill hag dumbass on us, you senile old bastard?"

      1. Clancy_Pants

        Close. They showed up. Looked at my hybrid. Said stuff like "Wicked Cool.. where's the battery", "Sometimes if you jiggle the fuses it'll fix it" and "Looks electrical, better call for a tow". The tow truck guy showed up and hour later, walked up opened the battery compartment, gave me a jump and I drove away.

        1. comrad_darkness

          Yay!

          BTW If it's a prius, you might want to change 12v batteries every 3 years. Friend has one and got stuck twice before just giving in and getting a new battery.

      1. Mumbletypeg

        Congrats by the way!

        What about ginger brew? I'd think one could find a handful of interesting labels in your area. (yeah, I know it's not the same)

        1. anniegetyerfun

          Thanks! Oh, I'd love that, but I also happen to have teh diabeetuss, so I can't really drink anything good. Maybe I can cut it with seltzer.

          1. flamingpdog

            Drink UP – if you play your cards right, having a sp*cial n**ds child could be good for your pocketbook!

    You know the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? At some point a pit bull does stop whining

    1. the_problem_child

      Pitbulls are smarter & better tempered. They're actually rather sweet, but that's no reason to put lipstick on them.

      1. flamingpdog

        That might make Todd's life a little easier.

        No, I didn't actually say that. No..no, I didn't.

    2. poncho_pilot

      i feel bad when pit bulls are forced to fight each other for someone else's amusement?

  5. GuanoFaucet

    That image is very disturbing. I wish you’d have chosen something else. I realize that it’s a shameful part of American history that we should never forget, but it’s too much.

  6. ttommyunger

    Don't have HBO, wouldn't watch this if I did. Saw J. Moore on Daily Show bit. Never seen her looking better. Showed a clip of her as Lou Sarah: nailed it. BTW, Walnuts should look so good, and Ed Harris did not look good.

    1. Bezoar

      I would watch it if only to see the marvelous J. Moore do the evil Sarah to such perfection. And also to revisit the incredulity, out of nostalgia.

        1. DemmeFatale

          I have HBO, but couldn't take it.
          Even a (dead-on) imitation of Sarah is too much for me! I was yelling and muttering at the TV. I quit (just like Sarah), halfway through.

  7. Barb

    80% approval rating in Alaska? Seems meth heads and rapists really like to vote in polls when they are high.

    1. aklibtard

      She walked into the perfect situation. First, the state is really red, so she had that going from the start. Second, the guy before her was the least popular governor in state history. Anyone would have looked good by comparison. Third, she was able to completely sit on her ass because oil prices jumped to $150 barrel. Instead of doing any work on long term projects with the cash she just cut everyone a check on top of the one that's given every year anyway, so could sit on her ass in Wasilla instead of the capital. In other words, pure dumb luck and good looks made up for her complete lack of work ethic, and ultimately foisted her upon the nation like an incurable STD.

      1. ChessieNefercat

        "…ultimately foisted her upon the nation like an incurable STD."

        At last, the perfect summation of that narcissistic, psychopathic dunderhead.

      1. redarmyzombie

        I couldn't; I'd end up with a sledgehammer through my TV with no recollection of the prior events…

    1. tessiee

      "Lieberman looked hilarious. Less Palpatine, more clown."

      I'm pretty sure that's not how ya spell "Palestine".

  8. C_R_Eature

    I don't have HBO, but I'm here anyway, just to be Rude. If I did have HBO, that MUTE button would be working overtime.

    Oh, and I'm drinking, just on General Principles.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      It's certainly better than the South Boston monstrosity that she was shrieking all over 30 Rock.

      1. ChessieNefercat

        Yes, I remember that, it was horrible. Being 30 Rock, I thought maybe it was one of their insider jokes (look at Julianne Moore pretending badly that she's from Southie) but if so, they never did the punchline.

    2. Negropolis

      Man, here I simply re-rendered the r-word, and I was gone like that. What kind of sorcery is this?

  9. Negropolis

    She is not ever going away, is she? I thought after her teasing running for president, where it was so obvious that she wasn't, she would have done her speaking fees in, but like a bad rash or a foreclosed home's toxic mold, she remains.

    Romney wins Guam and the North Marianas, Rick whens Kansastan, and I don't care. I can't wait for American Spring to get me excited, again.

    1. C_R_Eature

      I want to bury her in Yucca Mountain and let whatever poor bastards are around 40,000 years from now suffer.

        1. C_R_Eature

          NIMBY. That's why there's miles of underground tunnels and all those Blast doors.

          We have to get her off the teeve, before we all Go Mad. Take one for the Team.

        2. Negropolis

          The Feds own, what? 75% of the state? Push comes to shove, we could always store her at the bottom of Tahoe.

          1. Biff

            Unkind! a lot of people depend on that lake for drinking water. And the fish? You know how they'd smell, right?

          2. flamingpdog

            Pfft, the Feds own 97 percent of Alaska. Freeze her in a block of ice and store her in a grizzly mama cave, they can find her in 20,000 years, thaw her out, and she can star in Geico commercials.

        1. Negropolis

          If only when he crash-landed his presidential run into America he would have taken her career with him. Somehow, she gets away relatively unscathed. She'll never be president, but it was never about the presidency, anyway. It's always been about the "dollar, dollar bills, y'all."

  10. Barb

    The cat is out of the bag about the daughter being pregnant. I'm waiting for her to say, "I believe marriage is meant to be a sacred institution between two unwilling teenagers."

    1. mayor_quimby

      It made my male parts say 'whoa', that was a big deal.
      Let's hope the stadium in NC this fall is as full.
      It was 20k vs 80k in attendance

      1. Negropolis

        Trust me, that stadium will be filled even if they have to pack the upper decks with hobos and hookers in town to service the convention.

    1. Barb

      Please do not fap to the thought of nailin' Palin. You would do less damage by slamming your penis in your car door.

    1. C_R_Eature

      He's always saying that. It's why I don't go into D.C, 'cos I'd be severely tempted to kick in some testicles.

      Metaphorically, that is.

      1. Loaded_Pants

        It'd be easy to do, though, you know they're naked under those robes, right? Especially Thomas.

  11. zedbot

    For stating how "ambivalent" she is, she sure has her granny panties in a wad. Man up, Lou Sarah. Free market! Bootstraps!

      1. ibwilliamsi

        Yes, in the scene where she learns that Bristol is pregnant. She's got 4 or 5 kids and she doesn't know how that happened?

    1. flamingpdog

      Waitaminute, I thought peoplez (not me) paid 15.95 a month for HBO just so they could hear the "fuck" word. I'm cancelling the subscription I don't have immediately!

      1. mayor_quimby

        Mccains potty mouth made up for it. He used fuck as punctuation in the movie, as they say

          1. tessiee

            *ponders*
            Vince Vaughan is *almost* as douchey as Jeremy Piven, but also fat.
            I suppose we'll have to go with Joe Pesci: short, crabby, receding hairline, nails-on-blackboard voice; he's pretty much our best bet.

    1. Steverino247

      Unfortunately, my biological clock does NOT reset so I'm an hour off until fucking November. Stop screwing with time already.

      1. Loaded_Pants

        I always had trouble adjusting to the time changes. But the Energy Policy Act of 2005 really messed it up for me. It's one of the minor things that I can curse W for signing.

      2. NellCote71

        And I just a month ago figured how to reset my car clock, which is hidden behind more code than Iran's nuclear weapons plan.

        1. ChessieNefercat

          I drive a '91, so changing my clock means jabbing a tiny tiny button 60 times with a pen point. So I don't.

      3. tessiee

        "my biological clock does NOT reset so I'm an hour off until fucking November"

        So what do you do, get your period an hour earlier every month?

        1. Steverino247

          I know what time it is within about 15 minutes without looking at a clock. It's weird, I know, but that's the way I roll. I have sleep disturbances and all sorts of fun bullshit.

          And let me say, that was a very funny comment about the periods an hour earlier. I'll tell my wife that one when she wakes up later that she wants to.

    2. tessiee

      Read Sharkey's post carefully; if you try to set your cat forward, you're liable to get pretty darn scratched up.

  12. Barb

    Seriously, I think the whole "cash for clunkers" thing by Obama was just a way for anyone who had a McCain/Palin bumper sticker to save face and not have to douse their car with gasoline and torch it.

    1. C_R_Eature

      You must be right. Those bumper stickers disappeared faster than panties at a Wasilla Wine Cooler party.

      1. Gunner Asch

        Around here there are lots of Bush/Cheny bumper stickers. One of the other stickers is sometimes McCain/Palin but not so many as B/C. They need to leave room for the God Loves Every Child – Born and Unborn, Nobama, Repeal Obamacare, and Food Stamp President stickers.

        1. C_R_Eature

          We have a lot of "Don't Tread On Me" teabagger signs, bumper stickers for Our last Failed Republican Governor (hint: it's not O'Malley) paired with awful yellow/black District 1 Congressman Harris (R – ALEC). Not so many Nobama ones, yet, but the Asshole stickers will appear soon, I think.

        2. tessiee

          "Around here there are lots of Bush/Cheny bumper stickers"

          For years, my definition of a slow learner was someone who had a Bush *04* bumper sticker.

        3. HistoriCat

          What – no "Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve" bumper stickers? Lame.

          Around here (TX) I see "Secede" bumper stickers. It's a painful thing to see a vehicle which has both "Secede" and "These colors don't run" – my poor head can only take so much.

    2. ThundercatHo

      I see those once in awhile, usually on old guys pick'em up trucks, but tonight I saw an actual McCain/Palin yard sign and it was in mint condition. I hope they were having an ironic movie night.

    3. anniegetyerfun

      Torch it? They just turn them into mobile meth labs. Eventually, the will self-immolate*.

      *The cars, not the politicians.

    1. mayor_quimby

      They did ' say a prayer' instead. And somehow Bristle passed the word to the baby.
      Yes, I had to rewind that myself.

  13. C_R_Eature

    Bristol: "Tell Me You Love Me!"

    Levi: "Listen, Baby, would I lie to you just to run my fingers through your Pubes?"

  14. Barb

    "Parents of children with special needs children, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House"

  15. NellCote71

    Is it mandatory for every political movie or TV series to have that little squirrelly guy, the one who was googling for Lou Sarah? I thought he died way back on ER, anyway.

    1. Negropolis

      And, don't let her in on the fact that there is a new Mexico. That'd be too much for her to handle in one day.

  16. BarackMyWorld

    I know I'm supposed to think she's a giant ignoramus, but I'm pretty sure she knew who we fought in World War II.

    1. BarackMyWorld

      Her ignorance on the Iraq War is really well documented, though. Very, very well documented.

  17. Limeylizzie

    I got rid of HBO last year, so I am relying on my Wonketteers to describe the glory that was McCain/Palin 08.

          1. Barb

            Lizzie, I wish you could see the footage again of the people in the crowds for Obama's speeches. It's massive and the energy gave me goosebumps.

          2. Barb

            My greatest fear is that people assume Barack will win and they won't get out there and vote. I can't wait for the debates with Mitt and Barack.

          3. Limeylizzie

            That will be good and Joey Biden and Rick Santorum will be excellent ,'When Catholics Attack”

          4. Chet Kincaid

            Do you think Mittens would ask, and Santorum would accept? I think Santorum accepting the veep would totally destroy Ricky's credibility with all the Mormon-Haters and Liberal-Haters.

          5. Dashboard_Jesus

            thanks for the link and the sentiment LL…all snark aside I STILL love this guy for being so genuine and authentic and always keepin' it real, tho pictures tell the story…he connects with REAL people in a way that NO Repig ever has in my lifetime, not the Shrub. Or Gramps McSame or the MittBot 3.0 or even the sainted/ demented Ronnie Raygun…while BObama will never be as 'liberal' as me (hell I'M a socialist!) I'm gonna work my ass off just as hard to make sure he CRUSHES these Repugnant scum in November (this photo is one of my favorites cuz it shows just how cool BO is every day in every moment!) http://dudelol.com/obama-fist-bumping-white-house

          6. V572 Flambé

            I like the picture of Barry at a giant rally in St Louis, in front of the Old Court House where the Dred Scott decision was handed down in 1857, to the effect that slaves were property who could be "reclaimed" even in free states. Too drunk to find it but it's awesome in it's irony.

        1. C_R_Eature

          That made me very happy tonight, thanks! You really do know what gives us joy.

          I don't even mind seeing the scar where the Alien Brain Lizard got in.

          1. Limeylizzie

            I still have the faith, I think the second term may well be what the Republicans think the first one is.

          2. ThundercatHo

            Oh, I do hope you're right LL, thanks for keeping the faith. It's been hard sometimes and it's good that you are here to remind us.

          3. C_R_Eature

            Intellectually, I am there. emotionally, I can't let myself hope for that quite yet.
            Perhaps next January 20th.

        2. NellCote71

          If he hugged me, I would never bathe again, or at least my shoulders. Or back. Or my cheek if we touched there.

        3. anniegetyerfun

          OMG, so many of those photos… I wish there was more info on some of them. They are awesome.

          I also sort of like the idea of Bams and Biden getting stuck in the doorway.

          And the one in Ireland (last one) is so awesome that I could eat it with sour cream.

          1. anniegetyerfun

            Aw, I love it!Also, for some reason I can no longer comment on Wonkette except via email, so uh… say goodbye to everyone, I guess?

  18. the_problem_child

    Disclaimer: I'm not actually watching this. I watched the trainwreck the first time around.

  19. Monsieur_Grumpe

    I love a happy ending. Is there a happy ending?
    I don't have HBO so I'm counting on you guys to let me know.

    1. Barb

      LOl, Mumble! I reread Game Change last night and I am quoting aloud like this is the Rocky Horror Picture show in a theater full of drunkards. Jeffer keeps patting me on the head and handing me more beers.

      1. Mumbletypeg

        I've decided I'd like to give the book a shot. For "happier" if conflicted days of McCain campaigning ('00), check out David Foster Wallace's firsthand perspective following McCain's "Straight Talk Express", it's a quick read and full of Wallace's humor and gravitas in equal amounts.

        1. Fukui-sanYesOta

          Ordered! I miss DFW a lot. His "a supposedly fun thing I'll never do again" was superb and confirmed my suspicions about cruise ships.

          Also took the oppo to order a couple of Alan Furst books, but hey.

          1. Loaded_Pants

            The essay about his cruise experience was the one I remember the most from that book. The only other I can recall is there was one about David Lynch? (It's been awhile & I should probably reread the collection again)

            I never could make it through "Infinite Jest", though. But that was back when it had just come out. Maybe now I'd be up the to try to read it again. I mean, I have since made it through "The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman".

          2. Fukui-sanYesOta

            Damn, you're a better person than I if you managed Tristram Shandy.

            Infinite Jest I kinda liked. Wallace fucks around with his meta stuff, which he does very well in "brief interviews with hideous men" which can get a bit tiresome, but I find the whole compelling.

          3. Loaded_Pants

            Regarding "Infinite Jest": It was the endnotes and footnotes that did me in.

            There are few things I reread but Shandy's is on my list to read again. It's such a nice, mad, & complex piece of work.

          4. Fukui-sanYesOta

            The end- and footnotes are part of his meta fetish. They're part of the whole. Yes, tiresome, but less so than Shandy to me.

            'course, that's a subjective opinion, and I like Austen who many people find more than tiresome.

            What I liked most about DFW was his nimbleness in managing the footnotes with the narrative without compromising his thread. Acquired taste, perhaps, but I enjoyed the way he thought.

          5. NellCote71

            You read Tritram Shandy on your own and not some graduate seminar? Color me impressed. And to think he did all those plaing-with-type tricks before InDesign or even Quark.

          6. Fukui-sanYesOta

            If you like it, then "brief interviews with hideous men" is worth a crack.

            Personally I like "Infinite Jest" as well, but there's a variety of contretemps about that in this thread.

    2. Fukui-sanYesOta

      Don't have HBO, but the comments inspired me to look up the original "all of 'em, Katie" … and it's far worse than I remember. She fumbles and prevaricates and then tries to spin the question as Couric disparaging Alaska.

      Ugh ugh ugh.

      1. Fare la Volpe

        Jesus, that was the softest of softball questions and she couldn't even fake it. Just bullshit New York Times and Time Magazine like every other human being in the US. Fuck, she'd even have an excuse if she said fucking Zoobooks!! ARGHA@^%$*#^!!!

        1. Geminisunmars

          Flipping "Highlights" would have been a better answer, and she would have looked like a wit.

          1. tessiee

            I like the spin in the link that Gallant finds some very dark ways to vent his over-repressed impulses.

            There's another parody version somewhere on the innertubes with grown-up versions of Goofus and Gallant, who we've all met, e.g.:
            – Gallant understands that No means No.
            – Goofus says, "If she didn't want to put out, why did she eat the dinner?"

          2. HistoriCat

            It's about time we added something new to the mix … "_____ libel" is over a year old.

        2. tessiee

          Even some bullshit answer about how "it's hard to get to a news-stand when you're traveling for a campaign, but I try to pick up the paper in each town we visit. It gives a snapshot view of the local issues and concerns, and you get a real feel for the people along the way."

          She still wouldn't have had to come up with, you know, the actual name of an actual publication, and she would have come across as giving one single shit about anything but being a grifting attention whore.

  20. BarackMyWorld

    I still want to see a movie made out of the Barry/Hillary chapters….you know, the other 2/3rds of the book…

    What a Rutted Dancer. Plus a Redacted Runt. Or a Recanted Turd. Also too, an Endured Tract, that Nattered Crud.

    1. Tundra Grifter

      Barb:

      Being from Arizona and all, Sen. McCain should know it would be a herd of Mavericks.

      Actually, a Maverick is an unbranded cow – no owner. It doesn't mean a loner or solo bull.

    1. Beowoof

      Well when you are that challenged intellectually talking can be a drawback. However, according to Shailey Tripp, Todd has some talent.

  22. barto

    My right wing buddies who haven't seen this tell me that already it's horrible.

    I'll just go with that.

    1. Barb

      And to think that is currently airing for the first time tonight. They have giant crystal balls, eh?

  23. BarackMyWorld

    I once had some potatoes O'biden at this barbeque restaurant in Kansas City. They were fantastic.

  24. SaintRond

    I think maybe Walnuts wasn't really a true Republican… Not deep down in his heart of hearts. if he had been, say, if she'd been George W's running mate, they'd have staged some sort of grassy knoll incident.

    This film is excruciating to watch.

    OT: This is terrifying; http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/03/10/nebraska-
    Any doctor can refuse to treat or refer to another physician any patient whose religion, politics, gender, etc he disagrees with. He doesn't even have to tell the truth, provide another physician, etc, he can stone cold kill the patient for his religious rights.

      IF YOU ARE AGAINST ABORTIONS, WHY WOULD YOU TRAIN TO BECOME AN ABORTION DOCTOR?

      FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUCK!

      1. BerkeleyBear

        Because you are a white asshole who just sees OB/GYN as a chance to see cooters and make steady streams of cash by birthing babies. It is seriously shocking how many pasty GOP doctors turned conservative congresscritters were OB/GYNs.

    2. SolitaireRose

      Women must be shielded from the truth, because they are such fragile things. I'd bet the little ladies all want fainting couches for Mother's Day.

    Quick aside, in the most recently released Palin e-mails, there is one about Todd and Sarah, "….if we get divorced, when we get divorced…." Sarah tweeted that she said it as a joke because she was in the national spotlight and it was for the lamestream media. Too bad it was written in early "07, before she was in the national spotlight.

    1. Chet Kincaid

      I took a look at those when that story came out a couple of weeks ago, and it was pretty clear that it was a joke. Some other aide or associate had sent her an email joking about her divorcing Todd, and she sent an email high-fiving him for the joke, and then responded in kind.

      1. Barb

        Yes, because a woman who is too stupid to know that there is a North AND South Korea, a woman who had NO idea what the responsibilities of the VEEP entail, a woman who hounded for her brother-in-law to get fired for a vendetta, a woman who believed that Saddam Hussein was responsible for the 911 attack, a woman who didn't have the sense to see amniotic fluid leaking and got on a plane from Texas to Alaska with a special needs child (3989.85 miles) Trust me, I've been in labor and I would be pissed if my man suggested we stopped at McDonald's first.

        I don't believe for a split second that Sarah knew that the world would have her e-mails published.

    1. RadioStalingrad

      Hey, leave me out of this. I've already had to eat Crow in the last few days…eeeewwwwwww.

    1. SolitaireRose

      No, and how dare you say anything about her children when she sends them on speaking tours, uses them as political props and puts them to work in the meth mines of Barrow.

    1. AlterNewt

      I saw that in the promo. Do they have a source for her actually saying that?

      Because, of course, that would be ….great.

      1. Barb

        a slight variation of the quote can be found in "Sarah From Alaska," a book written by political reporters Scott Conroy and Shushannah Walshe, both of whom were embedded with Palin during her two months on the Republican ticket. "I just don't want to go back to Alaska," Palin says in "Sarah From Alaska" after the debate.

    1. C_R_Eature

      Yes and it's accopmplished something I didn't think was possible. It made me more enraged and determined to kick every one of these assholes out of public life that I can reach.

    1. Jukesgrrl

      I've always suspected the transformation began in February 2008 when Alaska magazine put her on its cover as America's Hottest Governor (tagline: "Wildly popular, she's more than just a pretty face") and Rasmussen was reporting her approval rating as over 70%. That was when Bill Kristol did his second big favor for his country and began touting her as VP material.

        1. BarackMyWorld

          That's disputed. He may have suggested her at some point, but I doubt anyone in the party actually listens to him.

          More likely two people came up with the same terrible idea around the same time independently….in this case, Rick Davis seeing a clip of her on Charlie Rose and mistakenly believing she was intelligent.

    Have they showed the part where they run through Sax Fifth Avenue tossing designer duds into Walmart shopping carts on their hillbilly shopping spree?

      1. Jukesgrrl

        Nicolle Wallace told Lawrence O'Donnell that however disheveled and out of control the hotel room looks in the movie, reality was a dozen times worse.

    1. Barb

      Thunder, for the life of me, I have NO idea why Todd needed silk underpants. I've had teen daughters and I've had to run out to get decent outfits for them for special occasions and I could see where her daughters would need clothes, but Todd and those silk undies? Complete abuse of the RNC.

      1. BarackMyWorld

        They showed her screaming about how she didn't know how much they cost when they were buying them.

          1. MegPasadena

            When they don't show the price, it is a sign of the goods being super pricy.
            I guess she did not know this.

          2. ChessieNefercat

            "When they don't show the price", idiots like Palin think it means everything is free.

      2. ThundercatHo

        I always wondered why she couldn't have gotten her family's clothes at Target, Walmart, Sears or JCP like the "real americans" she was always going on about. I doubt if the NASCAR fans she was addressing appreciated the fact that her boxy jackets, pencil skirts and Louboutin heels cost more than their brand new trucks.

      3. NellCote71

        You are focusing to much on Todd's silk underwear, which has too much of the gay,anyway. Focus on the whole clusterf*ck that was this campaign.

      1. RadioStalingrad

        And some Blah Liberation Theologist, Rev. Right.
        Don't you guys ever listen to Innanity?

        1. tessiee

          Considering that that's pretty much all most actual Republican First Ladies are, anyway, I'm not surprised.

      1. BarackMyWorld

        It did need the rumored incident where Palin answers the hotel room door in a towel.

        1. C_R_Eature

          I wouldn't have picked her tor them, even if I knew it would fuck them up. We came too close to catastrophe that last go around.

          1. Barb

            I think McCain's failure was that he thought picking Palin would bring the Hillary supporters to vote for Palin.

            There are many who think that Palin brought voters to McCain's side and there are many who think that Palin lost the election for McCain. In my opinion, she lost it for him.

          2. Loaded_Pants

            That's my opinion, too. For the life of me, I will never understand why they chose her. Pretty much everyone, including those within the GOP, were saying: "Who's Sarah Palin?" Even I, being so far removed from Alaska & not knowing a thing about her, thought it might be a decent choice. But then I started to learn more about her (as did the rest of the country & the GOP) & then I knew that McCain's chances were more dead than Reagan.

          3. BigSkullF*ckingDog

            Where is that conspiracy theorist blogwhore when we need her/him/it. They could probably explain this.

          4. BarackMyWorld

            To be fair, my reaction when hearing the news was "oh, shit" because I automatically realized what they were up to (identity politics), but also had no clue how disasterously her candidacy would turn out.

          5. Biff

            I worked with busloads (literally busloads) of volunteers from California on the campaign here in Nevada, and the most common reason for them going to such lengths to help defeat McCain was $arah–universally loathed.

          6. BerkeleyBear

            She gave him a fundraising boost and helped shore up some states that might have gone blue if she wasn't such catnip to fundies (in Missouri, which was razor thin, for example, she fired up the nuts in the Ozarks). But she (and McCain's cluster bombing on the economy) also ensured blue turnout and might have indirectly put Indiana over the top for Obama. I knew McCain was dead when he was sending her to places like Noblesville Indiana and having to waste time campaigning in Arizona right before the election.

          7. ThundercatHo

            McCain obviously badly underestimated the intelligence of Hillary's supporters. He probably would have still lost if he had picked someone with two neurons to rub together but not as badly.

          8. HistoriCat

            Now let's be fair – if one were to base their view of Hillary's supporters' intelligence on the PUMA diatribes of the time – well …

          9. tessiee

            I don't care for douches, either, but I've never issued a manifesto; I just don't hang out with them.

          10. C_R_Eature

            IMHO the McCain campaign was set on the rails to catastrophe as soon as Bill Kristol let his boner lead Palin to the VP slot.

            I was, and still am, deeply insulted and offended that anyone would even consider placing someone so disastrously unqualified into one of the most powerful positions on the planet.

          11. BarackMyWorld

            Don't forget Bill Kristol was Dan Quayle's Chief of Staff for the entire time he was Vice President.

            (I still think no one was actually listening to Kristol, they just came up with a bad idea independently based on limited options, but I digest…)

          12. C_R_Eature

            Parallel Failure. I can buy into that.

            Bill did have the ear of many powerful and stupid people in DC, though.

          15. Designer_Rants

            I personally think it had less to do with his running mate than the economy. I was a financial advisor at the time; panic! panic! panic! — right before the election! and then McCain played around with it instead of taking it seriously. People were looking at their 401(k)s and looking at Walnuts and MAYBE then looking at Palin and saying, "This guy is a fucking joke. It's a pattern now of poor decisions."

          16. tessiee

            "he thought picking Palin would bring the Hillary supporters to vote for Palin"

            Because all women in politics are interchangeable, and all women voters would vote for any woman.

          17. glamourdammerung

            Yeah, putting Palin in the VP slot was a pretty shameless attempt to grab that mighty PUMA army and win the election in a landslide.

            Yes, I am smirking right now. Why do you ask?

  28. BarackMyWorld

    The credits have an actress listed for Cindy McCain…I don't remember her even being in it.

    1. NellCote71

      The only time I saw her was sitting on the far end of the couch while they were watching election returns, and then on the stage. Calista probably launched a complaint about her being the new helmet-haired, plastic-faced first lady in waiting. Kind if like she pushed the second Mrs. McCain aside.

      1. NellCote71

        Oops. Meant second Mrs. Newt. Cindy IS the second Mrs. McCain. See, even watching a fake Sarah Palin makes you stupid.

    2. tessiee

      "Cindy McCain…I don't remember her even being in it."

      That figures; she was barely in the actual campaign.

    1. Barb

      Barbara_I's opinion, they laid heavily on the Palin part of the election and dismissed most everything else. The potential FLOTUS got no speaking roles?

      I detest Sarah Palin and yet, I felt this movie was all about her and what an idiot she is.

  29. Beowoof

    WOW that made me feel bad for McCain. And convinced my view of Sarah has been spot on since I first saw her malevolent face at the convention. I grew up in upstate NY and my Mom was a hockey mom and I have always found it insulting to her that Sarah took that moniker. Let me see if I can put this properly with the new rules. May Sarah be the Gump Worsley of Alaska. "Anybody who wears a mask is scared." ~ Gump Worsley, Hall of Fame Goalie

    1. Barb

      I DVR'd the Flyers v Maple Leafs game and I am watching it now.
      It has been suggested that Sarah didn't go to many hockey games and when she did, she only cheered when her son hit someone. It's also been suggested that her son spent a great deal of time in the "sin bin"

    2. tessiee

      "Anybody who wears a mask is scared."

      Sarah doesn't wear a mask — not because she has no fear, but because she has no shame.
      She hasn't yet gotten it through her thick skull that high school was 40 years ago, and she can no longer fool everybody into thinking she's just jim dandy by winkin' and jiggling those now tired old tits. So she lets the real Sarah shine through, and everybody but her sees her for the horror show she really is.

      1. Biff

        Hey, those tits are the youngest part of her body. I say this not knowing if she's undergone a rejuvenation "down there"…

        1. tessiee

          Good point.
          Since most of us women don't sprout tits until we reach puberty, they're always by definition 10 or 12 years younger than the rest of us.

  30. Arken

    I only came in here to find out if you got to see Julianne Moore's boobies, but it looks like you don't, so now I'm going to have to go watch Boogie Nights. Again.

      1. Arken

        I don't know, does that mean I'll have to sit through naked Liam Neeson too? Because that sort of offsets naked Julianne Moore.

      1. C_R_Eature

        Yeah, that part was pretty funny, in a Schadenfreunde -ly way. I've got it on MUTE now because I need to watch the music video of the Cowboy Junkies setting the Newport Festival on fire one last time.

    1. BarackMyWorld

      About fucking time. I was starting to think they were scared of him, just like the Republicans are.

    2. Negropolis

      That was a very good impression of him, despite that particular castmember being the very last one I would have expected to play him.

        1. BarackMyWorld

          I wonder if it has anything to the fact Tarram Killiam is at the bottom of the show's seniority ladder.

    1. tessiee

      Has the word "venal" appeared in this thread yet?
      If so, I think now would be a good time.

  31. chascates

    This must be science fiction. The idea that a politician with untreated PTSD would pick a total loon to be his running mate is ludicrous.

    1. Chet Kincaid

      Now that you mention it, in that scene where McCain had invited the Palin family to his house so that his doctor could "check out her mental state" (because any male doctor can diagnose female hysteria at a cocktail party), they really needed to strap Walnuts down so they could get to the bottom of his Vietnam and Daddy/Granddaddy issues.

  32. Chet Kincaid

    The problem is, not even this movie will drive a stake into her public life, so there are more potential sequels than there are Universal Dracula pictures. Shame and humiliation will never hurt her, and self-awareness and reflection will sit waiting in the cobwebby foyer of her mind, so long as she believes she can be dumber than Reagan and still rule the universe.

    1. C_R_Eature

      If we could just figure how to turn off the Wingnut Money spigot, then she'd go happily back to obscurity, fleecing the Rubes with her church and selling Condo timeshares in the new scenic tourist destination of Blackfly Marsh, AK.

      1. C_R_Eature

        If she comes around here, I'm going to try throwing a pail of water on her. It worked in a movie I saw one time.

  33. BigSkullF*ckingDog

    You guys with your elitist HBO. I'm stuck with netflix on the wifi signal I'm stealing from the neighbor.

  34. Designer_Rants

    OT: This is disturbing. More corruption in congress, a Republican (of course) is essentially procuring bribes from defense contractors (Boeing, Raytheon, OshKosh, General Dynamics – the usual suspects) to fund his wife's California State Assembly campaign. She's running on a platform of outrage against a 10cent plastic bag tax (an environmental law). Why on earth would defense contractors care about an environmental law? They can't explain that, even when asked directly.

    Also, did you know that we're paying about $50 million PER MONTH just to ONE COMPANY to make the F-35 jet weapon, and it doesn't even work right? http://bit.ly/xmf9SC

    Okay, Bitches! It's been real. It's time for me to get back on the "Trophy Wife Tour" and take a vacation with Mr Yum-Yum for 10 days.

    The whole post-op thing is progressing nicely and I've introduced lettuce back into my diet. We have a flight out and then I will see my surgeon on Thursday, and she will tell me when we can get back to sexy time. Not since Bush v. Gore has anything been so backed up.

    I'm kinda depressed after this surgery. Jeffer has never had children and I am distraught over the many abortions I could have had for him. Yeah, I am still going to send him to Walgreen's for tampons and almond M&M's. He pays attention to the M&M's and has no clue how roomy my bathroom cabinets are and how many tampons I can shove into those cabinets. I stack them up like cord wood and I have at least 3 years worth of storage before he catches on. Shhh, don't tell him.

    Thanks, and see ya in the funny papers!

    1. BigSkullF*ckingDog

      Have a great vacation barb! If I was a less well trained dog I would lick your face. You will just have to settle for my tail thumping on the floor.

    2. Jeffer

      Hey, what ARE we going to do with alll of those unused tampons? I'm thinking we could send them to Rush. (Insert your joke here).
      Sexytime will be back soon. We're just going to have some fun. I am going to have a big ass steak and some martinis at some point. Barb gets whatever she wants.

      Are you sure you didn't fall asleep in the middle and watch Game Change instead? 'Cause they sound like the same movie.

  37. ElPinche

    It was awesome. However, they should have had scenes from Palin's point of view with Schmidt and Wallace sounding like adults in Peanuts.."wah wah wa wah wa waah wah wa.." Also also I read elsewhere that Wallace broke down crying when Palin winked during the debate (as opposed to giggling like in the movie)….can't recall the source .

    Woody Harrelson as Schmidt was in it to win it. Smells like an emmy or whatever.

  38. Negropolis

    I felt a great disturbance in the Force, tonight, as if millions of Palinistas suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

    You know, they were right about this being a game change. That is to say that up until her elevation, McCain had at least attempted to play 11 dimensional chess with Obama. Choosing Sarah was basically McCain saying "fuck it, we're going to try to switch the game to checkers."

    How's that gamey-changey thing workin' for ya', Sarah?

    1. Fukui-sanYesOta

      Traveling through hyperspace ain't like election season, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a vote, or bounce too close to a caucus and that'd end your trip real quick, wouldn't it!

      edit: you expanded your original post past the first sentence which makes me look like Nerdy McNerdberger (which, of course, I am)

      McCain played but he couldn't win, so he tried the Hail Mary. That really, really didn't work for him.

    2. glamourdammerung

      But, but, but, McCain was entitled to the presidency. After all the rolling over he did with Bush's dirty campaign tactics and even sucking up to cretins like Pat Robertson, one would almost think his whole "honor" schtick was just a fabrication of that "liberal media".

      Hey, that's some good casting there. You just saved them a lot of money, so why not make it?

      1. BarackMyWorld

        I was trying to find a balance between resemblance and talent…otherwise it'd be one of fantasy casting articles like they used to run in "Wizard" magazine, where they'd have pro-wrestlers and super-models playing all of the parts.

    2. glamourdammerung

      You should have got Kelsey Grammer since he is always wanting to go on about how he can not get gigs due to being a Republican and not because of only being able to play one character.

      1. Chet Kincaid

        He's the mayor of Chicago on that show nobody watches, so he must have found someone in Hollywood dumb enough to believe a conservative could convincingly portray a Chicago mayor.

      2. tessiee

        Oh, boo freakin' hoo!
        He's been fucking that particular hippo since the mid-1980s, on FOUR different shows (Cheers, Wings, Frasier, and the Simspons [oh, yeah, like Sideshow Bob isn't the same character]), and getting assloads of money for that same tired old schtick. How many other mediocre Johnny One Note actors can milk it for that long, let alone get paid enough to keep them in stripper wives? It's as if whats his face had been playing The Professor on Gilligan's Island for 30 years, except getting a million bucks an episode.

    3. tessiee

      Upfisted just for the awesomeness of the casting.

    Someone at a party last night(somehow I admitted I was a democrat) insisted that if I had watched the GOP debates, I would see that the GOP are not negative about contraception or any of the womens' issues- the media manipulated everything. She told me I should read the transcripts of the debates. Miss Manners is so right- never discuss politics, religion or anything with crazy people.

    1. Tundra Grifter

      finallyhappy:

      Quite interesting the Lamestream Media are powerful enough to get Mr. Obama elected President, but can't seem to do a damn thing about jobs, peace in the Middle East, getting hungry children in the US of A fed.

      Or gettting Duh Gov'Nuh to shut the fuck up.

  41. reasonbran

    Last night was a very painful two hours for me. For a while there I actually experienced some compassion for Sarah Palin. I know: so very incorrect of me. So girly-man of me! But still: talk about being a poster child for being in over your head! I couldn't help myself: I had some moments. But then someone came along (that would be me) and bitch-slapped me 3-4 times, reminding me what a cretinous megalomaniac she is; what a pathological inability she has to differentiate between truth and non-truth; what a one-bit contemptible demagogue she is; how she's turned what should be Serious Shit into reality television; how she's just plain stoopided her way into the upper echelons of the 1%; and I thanked my Old Testament god for the righteousness of my outrage and decided to go ahead and embrace my inner nasty son-of-a-bitch.

    Like my New Age friends tell me, you create your own reality. And Sarah sure created hers. Came a time when she said, "That's a noose? You betcha I'll just climb up onto the scaffold and put it around my neck!" Now this movie has her twisting in the wind. Sarah, it's a punishment fit for your massive hubris.

    1. Chet Kincaid

      The main pivot point of the problem, at least as portrayed in the movie, is that she did fully realize how stupid and unworthy she was, but bailed herself out of it by convincing herself that it didn't matter, because Reagan was stupid, too, and that she was still the star of McCain's campaign. So I don't feel sorry for her tiny, pea brain. I also have no sympathy for the fact that she reneged on supporting McCain's policies after promising that she would.

        "The main pivot point of the problem, at least as portrayed in the movie, is that she did fully realize how stupid and unworthy she was, but bailed herself out of it by convincing herself that it didn't matter"

        I didn't watch the movie, but if that was it's viewpoint, I don't agree with it.
        $arah (and Bush, it must be said) are the kind of sociopaths who not only enjoy their petty, hateful meanness, but who truly believe (if they can be said to possess enough brain function to believe anything) that they're always right.

        I've met people like that, unfortunately. If you ask them if they've ever been wrong, they won't argue, they simply won't understand. "Whattya mean?", with their tiny foreheads all scrunched up, and their mouth hanging open, like a not very bright golden retriever.

      Please remember that apart from all of that, that the problem was that she had the gall to accept the invitation in the first place. She could have turned it down, and she wouldn't have been the first, nor would she have been the last to do so.

      Not only was her hubris in thinking that they really had a chance kind of rattling, but was was maddening is that when she had the epiphany that they probably wouldn't win (ya' think?), she turned to being personally nasty and classless to her opponents, and parlaying that both into bringing out the very worst elements in America to build a class of customers for her subsequent and cynical grifting. I'll never forgive her for what she brought out in America near the end of their disaster of a campaign. She is directly responsible for the tea party getting as hot (read: racist/xenophobic/sexist) as it has gotten.

    The movie portrayed Festus McCain as a profane hard drinking regular guy, BShit , Mr. Cranky Pants picked Ms. Moose and endangered civilization for the next century. Besides when the economy tanked in September he said "golly gee" what do I do now. Since then he has been for bombing any country he can throw a dart at. Sarah may have been a dumb ass but come on Johnny was no prize either.

    1. ElPinche

      Yeah, they went a little too easy on t-rex. I'm waiting for the alternative ending with McCain at Sedona Assisted Living for Rich Fart Bags sipping on vodka. ..yeah, vodka…COMMUNIST!!

      1. chascates

        The McCains will have a number of their own assisted living centers. John won't have any idea how many.

        1. Biff

          If I had as many servants as I imagine they have, even my cave would be considered "assisted living".

    I feel bad for Julianne Moore — surely having to study Palin for the part means that Sarah is now a part of her and Palinesque utterings can now pop out of her in her life?

    Shorter HBO's "Game Change"

    McCain: le looking for vp candidate

    Schmidt: hi i found a game change!

    Trollface: all of them, katie!

    McCain: FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    John McCain must be delighted with the movie. It shows him as a nice guy, no crazy at all. Those of us who remember '08 hardly recognized the man who sold his soul and lost his mind, apparently never to be recovered.

    As for the portrayal of Sarah, Julianne Moore totally missed what makes Sarah Sarah. She's mean and she likes that in herself. She's at her best when she's mean. Playing her like she's all warm fuzzies at heart just isn't credible.

    In short, the movie must have been based on a chapter written by Halperin. This was a big, disappointing bait and switch.

      1. DustBowlBlues

        You can quit holding your breath now. I agree with you. Once she was before those screaming crowds, she's shown to be the publicity whore she is. LIfe really is about her.

  47. Chet Kincaid

    It's funny, the movie gives McCain and Palin a little more dignity than they deserve by ignoring both of their appearances on Saturday Night Live toward the end of the campaign. By going on the show, Palin showed she either had a slightly better sense of humor than advertised or was too stupid to understand how thoroughly Tina Fey had humiliated her.

    But McCain's guest spot on SNL was even more extraordinary: He stood there while Fey stuck the knife into his own VP candidate, days before the election! It still amazes me that McCain had given up on his chances so completely that he literally snarked himself before anyone had even voted. It's the kind of devil-may-care, mavericky-ness that inflicted the bitch on the nation in the first place.

  48. trampndirtdown

    What a nice portrait of a calm even-tempered statesman like John McCain. I especially liked the scene when he gently chides the staff (who rat-fucked him in 2000 that he hired) for wanting to go negative.
    Excuse me while I go buy some more whiskey. It's NCAA time.

  49. Tundra Grifter

    OK, i didn't see the movie (we don't have cable) so I had to wade through over 540 comments to learn nobody has yet blamed Wonkette for bring Duh Gov'Nuh to national attention.

    When is Wonkette going to step up? We know it was Wonkette that introduced the hot governor of Alaska to America and to the World!

      You thought Ken Layne was hiding out in the desert because he loves the place? This is the burden he must continue to bear.

    Awww …. Tiny forehead scrunches up, mouth hangs open. Lots of dog-breath lapping follows, accompanied by drool.

  51. Negropolis

    You know, I was just thinking, today, that Sarah's ability to monetize moral/intellectual failure and bankrupcty is Kardashian in its scope and breadth.

  52. savethispatient

    Just watched it… now I really want to see a follow up – Game Change: Biden's perspective. Just following Biden around from before the primaries to the election, showing all the gaffes that weren't caught on tape.
