It’s not about Sarah.
From an entertainment aspect, the trailer makes the film look intriguing, not just to political junkies. Palin fan or not, though, if you consider yourself a conservative, it deserves loud and vocal push-back. Consider the causes supported by its star cast. Harris’s wife, Amy Madigan, serves on the board of NARAL while Harrelson stumps with Michelle Obama, admires Fidel Castro, thinks Bush was complicit in 9-11 and donates time to PETA. (What would Harrelson do if NARAL supported late-term abortions of puppies?). But what is most disturbing is the casting of pro-choice activist Julianne Moore to play ardently pro-life Palin.
Shameful. But then, Hollywood has no shame, only agendas.
The remarkable thing about this is that America deserves a film digging into the story behind Obama’s rise, or shall I say, the lack of interest in the story behind Obama’s rise.
Imagine the dark trailers for that: Begin with a bomb going off at the Pentagon, and then Obama being introduced as the next President in the living room of Ayers’ house. Next frame, a shot of Obama’s Harvard college transcripts being deleted off the computer screen, and then Occidental’s while Obama smokes pot, laughing. A quick cut to a young Obama sitting mesmerized at the feet of a known Marxist with Hawaii’s beaches in the background. Cameras sweeping over a weeping, fainting audience with Obama’s voice over “And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” The Obamas smiling as Rezko hands over the keys to their new mansion.
Bill it as a Horror Flick. Because it has been.
This film isn’t about Palin. It’s an attempt to smear conservatives, all of us.
Where is the conservative movie rebuttal to Game Change? I’ll donate.
