HBO has lost the admiration of some of the most ardent conservatives in the country. This week to broadcast their horror concerning 'Game Change' (the forthcoming biopic of Sarah Palin) her own SuperPAC — called the SarahPAC — has produced a new video to challenge what they say is a 'false narrative.'
According to Politico Palin’s crew have responded by producing a two-and-a-half-minute video trailer titled 'Game Change we can believe in.'
Filled with congratulatory statements made about about Palin by McCain strategists Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace during the 2008 campaign, their inclusion is seen as payback for the much more critical take they have on her now.
Wallace calls Palin 'a once in a generation politician' and Schmidt praises her performance during the vice presidential debate against Joe Biden.
The video then shows a graphic in which the words 'Game Change' morph into 'Fact Change.'
Conscious of the damage this could do to Palin's public image the SarahPAC said in a statement: 'We have warned viewers of Game Change’s distortions–based upon the description and reports from people who have viewed the film, HBO must add a disclaimer that this movie is fiction.'
Building on the massive conspiracy theory they continued: 'Behind Game Change’s slanderous agenda is a trail of money leading straight to the Barack Obama campaign and the Democrat(ic) Party. Writer Danny Strong and director Jay Roach each donated the maximum $2,300 to Barack Obama’s campaign in 2008. Even actress Julianne Moore, who plays the Governor herself, contributed to the more than $120,000 donated to Obama and Democrats since 2008 by the film’s producers and cast.'
To further stem the bleeding several Palin aides held a conference call with reporters this week to defend Palin from the film’s warts and all portrayal.
