HBO's recently produced political docudrama "Game Change" reverses fact and inserts fiction in such large measure as to make the effort a laugher. That being the case, who better to play Sarah Palin then Julianne Moore, whose cardboard characterization was based on Ms. Moore's utter lack of knowledge of the character she was playing. I suppose this is part of the method acting. However, for a docudrama of a well known political figure, one would hope for a little less make-up and a little more method. Ms. Moore's Palin was no closer to the truth than the SNL version Tina Fey concocted, but than that was a known comedy sketch, intended to get laughs. Here the humor was more accidental.
If the goal was to get as much wrong as possible, than HBO's Game Change was a stunning success. It was like a variation of 'The West Wing', the popular political drama starring well known liberal Martin "Not in MY NAME" Sheen, whose fictional president managed to get everything to work out swimmingly, regardless of the hard reality the rest of us have to deal with.
Sarah Palin's PAC provided a brief video response, which unlike the HBO two hour brain freeze, is actually spot on accurate and fun to watch:
