Statement Issued.. Palin says that the film “presents a history that never happened.”

By Geoffrey Dunn

 

When Sarah Palin declared two weeks ago that she “wasn’t too concerned about a HBO movie based on a false narrative,” you knew instantaneously that she was fudging it more than a little bit about Game Change. Of course she cared. Just today she launched a video on her SarahPAC website defending her performance in the 2008 campaign and issued a statement that the film “presents a history that never happened.”
A week ago Palin unleashed her dogs on HBO and, almost as predictably, on John McCain’s senior campaign advisor Steve Schmidt, who has made his disdain for Palin quite public since the 2008 election. In a recent forum sponsored by the New Yorker, Schmidt openly acknowledged that Palin was “clearly not prepared for the presidency.”

As part of the orchestrated pushback to Game Change, no fewer than seven of Palin’s associates took to the telephone wires angrily denouncing HBO’s upcoming fiilm, including her one-time mouthpiece Meghan Stapleton and her former foreign affairs advisor, the controversial neo-con lobbyist Randy Scheunemann.
What mainstream news accounts of the conference call failed to mention is that all seven of those who partook in the denouncement of Game Change were at one time or another on the payroll of Palin’s political action committee, SarahPAC, at which they were all paid handsome monthly stipends between $6,000 and $10,000.
Never mind the fact that none of them had actually seen the film; all seven have had a significant and vested interest in Sarah Palin’s post-campaign reputation. This was pushback with a fee attached. Stapleton went so far as to call the movie “sick” and described Schmidt as “abusive” and “abrasive.”

    Considering that Palin totally mangled the story of Paul Revere’s ride … (twice) … ?

    If there’s an expert in “history that never happened,” she’s IT.

    And as we all know, Palin has a flair for history.

    Projection?
    Sick and abrasive?
    Who fits that description?
    I say that describes Sarah Palin far better than Steve Schmidt.

    All her bought and paid for koolaid drinkers can’t put these revelations back in the bag. Why did she quit anyway? Still waiting for a rill statement there. What was it was that put her in the state she was in when she called her Mr. back in the middle of the season?

    If she would just shut up, she wouldn’t drum up interest among people who could care less…as it is, she is making this seem a ‘must see’ event. She sure doesn’t change her stripes, dos she? Still the vindictive 8th grader.

    If you think she’s having a fit now, wait til the word spreads about Shailey Tripp’s just released book “Boys Will Be Boys: Media, Morality, and the Coverup of the Todd Palin Shailey Tripp Sex Scandal” gets around. Loving it!

      I just ordered it on Amazon. I don’t usually pay over $20 for a book but the books about Palin are the exception.

      Maybe not really the right place/time to promote Shailey’s book? And the “Amazon” website isn’t actually an Amazon website. It’s someone’s personal stealth blog. Created to look like Amazon.
      Sorry, I don’t like being duped.

    I’m not a bit surprised that those who helped her in condemning the movie were paid by SarahPAC. Now there’s a reason to have a Super Pac! I, for one, am looking forward to seeing “Game Change.” So much of the lies and vitriol of the past three years belongs at Sarah Palin’s feet. Just think, had she just slunk back to Alaska after November 2008, this movie would never have been made. Sarah Palin has only Sarah Palin to thank.

    All Palin knows is:

    fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie, fight, lie, fight, fight, lie…

    There is a reason Alaska’s Worst Governor Ever knows nothing else. She has no interest in anything else. Just fighting.

    And the recent SarahPAC vid… well it doesn’t change much of anything.
    The woman is a walking mess.
    She’s a MESS.

    Not sure about the rest of you, buy we’re having a Game Change party on March 10th. I’m cooking caribou roast and some fresh rolls.
    We are all headed up to my sisters for some good food, great company, the movie and sledding…

    The SaraphPAC vid response to ¨Game Change¨ reminds me of just how far Sarah has dropped. Sarah can´t even draw a crowd in a crowded mall. She can´t even fill up a movie theater with her supporters. She has fallen, and she can´t get up.

    The same crowd the SarahPAC vid shows at the 2008 Republican convention would boo her today. Instead of ¨Drill, baby, drill!,” the crowd would chant ¨Get her ass off the staged!¨

      Her daughter, the one trick pony, is bombing even more. She can’t even get 25 people to show up at a book signing where she is giving away free books. And yet, Lifetime wants to do a reality show on this worlds most uninspired, undereducated young woman. Go figure.

    Her life, as she tells it, is what “never happened.”

    After reading more than half of Shailey’s book, Palin has a lot more to be worried about than Game Change. There are quite a few things in there that no decent family would want to be known about them, including Sarah’s massage only a few days prior to her announcement that she was pregnant. She denied being pregnant, did not appear pregnant, especially NOT 7 months and even had an abdominal massage due to the injections she’d been receiving to help dissolve abdominal fat. No pregnant woman has these injections and Palin was not pregnant in March 2008. Sarah is a LIAR.

    Those Sarah-Supporters who are speaking out and saying the movie is fiction and what it portrays never happened?? Well, they admit they have not seen the movie. But, I have another question: Were any of them there during the 2008 campaign? If not, they wouldn’t know the truth if they tripped over it. How can they speak for her, the campaign if they were not there? Does anyone know if any of the “speakers” for “truth” were actually with Sarah then?

      Yes, Jason Recher(sp?), Randy Scheunamin (sp?) They were both star struck by her “winkiness” and went on to be on her Sarah Pac staff, receiving thousands of Pac money for their efforts. There may have been more, but I don’t know. Stapletongue was with her at the time, but I don’t know her involvement/role with the campaign. They’d all cover for her if they personally saw her commit an axe murder in front of them, either for her money, or their for their complete subjugation to her.

        Thanks, KatzKids Now I know that at least they were there so can speak about their own version of the reality of it all with some experience.

    Many folks have already seen the movie and it is suppose to be very well done and accurate. Palin and her ilk were asked to be involved w/the production, but they declined. They make all these statements ‘anti’ the accuracy of the film, but also say they’ve not seen it. What idiots as usual!

    One has to ask why is SarahPAC the public relations entity of Sarah Palin?

      They’re her arm & personal slush fund, created FOR her by John Coale, starstruck hubby of Greta VS. C4P being the other arm. They both claim they operate independently and receive no instructions or contact with her. If you believe that, you can also believe that the Koch Bros. have no influence with the GOPTP. LMAO!
