Storyline

Summer, 2008: John McCain secures the nomination, but polls behind Barack Obama. Strategist Steve Schmidt suggests a game changer: picking a conservative female with media savvy, unknown Alaska governor Sarah Palin, as vice president. She's an immediate hit and a quick study - the gap closes. Then, Tina Fey's impersonation, a raft of criticism, and missing her family send Palin into a near-catatonic state: she doesn't prepare for her Katie Couric interview and bombs. Schmidt searches for an answer: don't expect her to learn the issues, but give her a script. Palin does well in the debate with Biden; she finds her voice, goes off script, and goes rogue. A mistake?

Quotes

Steve Schmidt: [regarding "Troopergate" charges] You can't say you were cleared of all wrongdoing.
Sarah Palin: [applying lipstick] Why not?
Steve Schmidt: Because you weren't. The reports stated that you abused your power; that is the opposite of being cleared of all wrongdoing.
Sarah Palin: Then why was I told otherwise?
Steve Schmidt: You weren't told otherwise!

Absolutely fantastic movie
10 March 2012 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

The movie Game Change about the campaign of the Presidential ticket of John McCain with Sarah Palin as his Vice President is such an awesome movie. It just shows you how much of an incompetent of an idiot that Palin is and how unqualified she was for the role she was given. It's like they went out of their way to find a woman candidate to try to steal away women voters who were upset that Hillary Clinton didn't win the Democratic nomination. The fact that she thought that the Queen of England was still the head of the government over there is still amazing. Sarah Palin is the kind of person who would go on the game show Are You Smarter then a 5th Grader and lose every single time.

Don't get me wrong since I think that McCain would've made a much better president then George W. Bush did(how could you do worse?). But with Palin as his running mate the idea of even thinking about voting for McCain went right out the window.
