Few made-for-television movies have arrived with the amount of fanfare, anticipation and attendant hyperbole as has HBO's political docudrama Game Change. Almost as soon as the HBO production was announced, critics began taking potshots at it.
Conservatives may be upset with various details that they believe HBO got wrong in the Sarah Palin portrayal in Game Change, but one detail that the network got right was its portrayal of McCain as a cynical man devoid of common sense and sincerity.
HBO's film on Sarah Palin and the 2008 campaign, Game Change, will air this weekend. The only thing surprising to me is that anyone at this late date would be surprised by any embarrassing facts about Palin.
