Julianne Moore As Sarah Palin: The Early Buzz

Categories: TV


Next month, HBO will start airing Game Change, starring Julianne Moore as vice-presidential-wannabe-turned-reality-star Sarah Palin, and it's too early for reviews, but some buzz is already filtering out like horny moose on the tundra.

And it's good.

The movie details the 2008 presidential bid by John McCain (Ed Harris), which reaches a crucial turning point when he selects the not-quite-ready-for-prime-time Palin as his running mate.

One observer reports that the movie shows that Palin really cares for her kids, "but it also shows that she's completely clueless and so stupid and arrogant, she doesn't even realize how clueless she is!"

Sounds accurate.

And Julianne?

"Fabulous," says the source. "Start polishing that Emmy."

Oh, good.

Bear in mind this is just one person's opinion, but at least it's not the same person who started trumpeting Oscar buzz for The Beaver.

Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin's bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she's not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren't in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out. The link in my name exposes the biggest cover up in history

Sarah Palin is a national hero. The sad part is our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin's bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she's not running? Know what leaked out?

If McCain looked anything like Ed Harris, he'd have won in a walk

US, you are just nuts.

Equs & Davore, I won't make a judgment on your intelligence (although liberals such as yourself quickly attack the intelligence of anyone who disagrees with you). But I will say you are sadly misinformed on several topics. Instead of filling your head and gluing the opinions of SPIN doctors as your own, why not check out the facts (not the SPIN) - and yes it takes real effort to search truth - and then form your own real opinions. Just saying.

All, before you make judgments on why someone does or does not do something, put yourself in their shoes and decide what you would do - I mean what you would actually do - keeping in mind your decisions affect your family and career. Then maybe you wouldn't be so quick to accept the SPIN of politicians.

Keep covering up the truth government poster. Take over the media, Washington, and run the conversation online attempting to create the illusion of public perception. You should be ashamed of yourselves for trampling on the Constitution and committing treason. Even government isn't above the law. It's time you recognize this.

I still think Ed Harris, despite being beyond caked in makeup, does not really pull me in as McCain.  The voice inflections are still all Ed Harris.  

And judging by the trailer, Palin looks slightly sympathetic compared to Woody Harrelson as Steve Schmitt looking like the biggest idiot, the Dr. Frankenstein of the election cycle.  Schmitt is still a very prominent political consultant despite making one of the biggest bonehead moves ever.  Like in Recount with Warren Christopher and a bunch of other liberals getting indirectly blamed for their lack of spine in 2000, I think Roach will be targeting the insiders rather than the figures we all knew.  Maybe it is completely different but I think that is what they are going for.

The movie is propaganda?? So Palin ISN'T a misinformed, misguided moron and hypocrite who preaches family values while her family obeys none of them, and who quits jobs in the middle so she can get more airtime and money???

Thanks for the lesson, Stacy Drake.

How so?

I have been informed about Governor Palin's career since before you knew she existed. I'm a reform activist, so I appreciate public officials with honest reform records.

And you based your opinion of Palin on what exactly? Left-wing actors?

Who's the idiot?

Romeo

You are claiming the Grifter Palin is an "honest reform record"? Are you high as an aerostat? Girl, Palin was investigated for numerous ethical violations! She quit her damn term half-way through. She wouldn't know "honesty" if it bit her in her right-wing bottom! You really ought to get out a bit more. Out of your right-wing echo chamber, that is.

Rightwing nutjobs have google alerts for things like "Palin" and then they weigh in with their idiotic comments. No one thought Palin was running for president, Stacy. She was running for vice president, remember?

StacyDrake

When was this movie planned to air, idiot? March you dumb SOB... Right around Super Tuesday.

BTW, I'm an independent libertarian, so if that's what you consider a "Rightwing nutjob" I'll assume you're on public assistance.

Romeo

You say "public assistance" like that's a bad thing. You shouldn't insult other people's mothers, thing!

How would you know what is accurate?

Meanwhile, Joe Biden thinks the Giants play football in San Francisco!

This movie is propaganda put out by a bunch of Obama supporters when they *thought* Palin was running for president. I'm happy that they were able to do what liberals do best with this garbage... Lie and waste money.

It won't be a waste of money because people will watch and appreciate Moore's acting and recall yet again what a total nutbag sleazeball Sarah "Quitter-Grifter" Palin is.  She does know how to roll up on some money by doing nothing beyond yapping away with some nonsense, I'll give thing that!

She looks great in the trailer. I love Ms. Moore. She's fearless--and quite brave to play such a wretch of a human.

Palin is a "wretch of a human"? Please explain what she has done to earn that title.

The woman has more class and accomplishment in her little finger than you have in your life.

"Fearless" to smear a conservative in her own liberal quarters?

No, like you, Moore is a coward.

Everyone in a contemporary/political HBO movie always wins the Emmy. That's a given.
