Game Change movie

So, a while back Mike from Canada strongly recommended I watch Game Change, the HBO movie about Sarah Palin’s vice-presidential candidacy.  I did a few weeks ago, but forgot to mention it until Mike reminded me.  Anyway, it was quite good– two thumbs up.  Julianne Moore’s performance as Palin was terrific and I loved Woody Harrellson has McCain campaign manager, Steve Schmidt– who basically couldn’t believe what he had unleashed on the American public.  Given that I had already read the book (absolutely epitomizes all that is bad about political journalism.  But entertaining), I didn’t really learn anything new, but it was nonetheless a very compelling dramatization of a fascinating story in American political history.  When you get a chance, it’s definitely worthy your time.
