Sara Palin has already gone on record saying she’s not interested in seeing HBO’s telefilm “Game Change.” Anyone who so much as glanced at the trailer understands why. The film portrays the former Alaskan governor according to the most garish caricatures painted by her political enemies.
Those who saw the real Sarah Palin in action back in 2008 aren’t willing to let the film’s distortions stand without challenge.
SarahPAC responded to the film, which will debut on HBO March 10, with a new post published today:
Pay channel HBO has produced another docudrama based on the political arena. This time it is a subscription-only television movie sensationalizing 40 pages of a three-year-old book about the 2008 presidential election. The real 2008 Election was an incredible, moving experience that brought together the nation to celebrate our democracy. HBO has taken that experience and twisted it into tabloid drama for its own profit.
The docudrama Game Change has not been released, but the content and clips available and scenes as reported by the media make it clear that HBO studio heads decided they would generate more profit by inventing facts and scenes for the purpose of fictionalizing a history written by people with no personal knowledge of the situations they attempt to depict.
After viewing the Game Change trailers purporting to show actual events from the campaign, we sifted through over 2,000 behind-the-scenes photos of actual events, people and moments.
Below is an inside look at those moments which were captured from September to November 2008 and encompass over 95 rallies in 19 states, three major policy speeches, numerous town halls, four meetings with Blue Star Moms, two hockey games and as many unscheduled stops as we were able to fit in the schedule.
This is the Game Change you can believe in, because it actually happened.
