Andrew Malcolm notes that "Game change," HBO's cinematic smear job on the 2008 McCain-Palin campaign, will hit the small screen just in time for the 2012 political season:
Their Arizona-Alaska effort to keep the White House in Republican control, coming after eight years of you-know-who and his sidekick, you-know-him-too, who led the country into two wars and left the country in the hands of an ex-state you-know-what who's upped the ante in one war and started another against Libya.How is all that hopey changey stuff working out for you anyway? Perhaps it's time for some more of those great SarahPAC ads which were produced by PassCodeCreative. The new ads should ask viewers if they're better off now than they were four years ago before Obama was elected. If the viewers are not on the federal payroll, they will be likely to admit that they are much worse off, just like their country.
Other than that and the spending beyond belief and the $3 trillion-plus of new national debt and no end in sight to the harsh political tone of Washington and the healthcare bill that seems to have more large companies exempted from its rules than are covered, other than those little things, everything turned out for the better.
