    Despite the obama media pacs campaign against her,with all US tv networks shooting at her (that is not all obama romney for instance doesn't like all the support and attention she gets) and a film based on the word of two members of a campaign against the 11 staffers on the mcain campaign who have gone on record and said the film is a complete fantasy and is a hitjob made because at the time it was thought she was running for the presidency timed to be released now to do her damage ,and also the obama pac putting an ad out now against her (why when she isn't running for any public office) ?

    Yes despite all that she polls far higher than the front runner, and crucially if it went to a brokered convention it, suggests she is more of a unity candidate than the others. Also if she had run romney would have had a harder time with her than santorum or newt because this data shows she appeals not just to the bible thumpers but to more libertarian and moderate republicans than santorum and newt do.

    That would be because she doesn't have to actually talk about any of America's real problems, like the budget crisis... she can just mouth off about whatever republican voters want to hear, whether or not it would make a positive difference to the country.

    Actually... the book that the film was based on is widely considered to be accurate. Of course other people are going to say that it was inaccurate because they want to keep their jobs. The people who claimed that the book was inaccurate did not even offer any proof, but just said "it is a lie!" If you really want to go down that road, Sarah Palin's autobiography has been challenged many times with verifiable proof by the AP and other reputable news sources.

    Sarah Palin does not represent unity, unless you mean the unity of conservative, Southern WASPS. She has said hateful things about LGBT, minorities, and people of other religion.

    Frankly, she is a gun-toting numskull and the fact that she gets any publicity shows how sad America is... I say this as an American passport holder.

    2. The candidates spend millions on attack adverts slagging each other off... It's actually hard to understand the intensity of the barrage of negativity coming at the public there unless you've seen it for yourself.

    Its only because she has retreated back to safe and known methods of presenting herself and has control again. Before the primaries when she popped up and put a toe in the water regarding the possibility of actually running it all fell to pieces. If she were a serious candidate she would be destroyed pretty quickly under the pressure and scrutiny that would involve. It would quickly enough be revealed that her understanding is limited to her own pet projects and narrow interests. On these subjects she is great but beyond them she would flounder badly.

    I think this means she will have more influence and popularity if she sticks to operating as she has done to date. She seems to know that herself now and to be getting on with it pretty much.

    Do you have any quotes to back that up? I've never heard her say hateful things about minorities or gays?

    1 it is widely considered accurate by the obama supporting media and by two rogue staffers on the mcain campaign both of whom had a huge input into the film because the film is being used to portray palin as the problem during the 2008 election when polling data suggests the total opposite .The reality is, schmidt in particular was instrumental in convincing mcain to suspend his campaign during the general election after the wall street crash. That and other things caused mcain to lose. It was in general a poorly run campaign. The most that could be said for Palin was there wasn't adequate communication between the presidential candidate staff and some of palins personal advisors who she brought in from alaska and were working in her VP campaign .Neither camps got on.

    There are 11 people in both camps who worked with Palin closely who say the film is very inaccurate not only regarding Palin but mcain also.Mcain is someone portrayed as a man who would put becoming president above anything else even electing an unstable political attack dog .The reality is mcain is a war hero a very honourable man who did run a poor campaign but had a good heart and certainly wouldn't choose a vp candidate who would hurt the country. These staff crucially have gone on the record. . The film is based on just two chapters of a book, the other chapters portray the damaging primary campaign between clinton and obama, where neither comes out smelling of roses. But a film by obama supporting HBO would never be made about that before a general election. The scenes in the film where palin is seen as 'losing it' are when she is on her own. So in my opinion the film here is following the sexist stereotype that women are too emotional for power. Also if there were no witness's to these scenes including the infamour blackberry throwing incident, how accurate are they? Not very when those who know palin say that she treats her blackberry like a pet.

    'game change' is about saving two peoples jobs, because both schimdt and wallace were cast out into the political wilderness for their disloyalty and incompentence, neither can get a job on a campaign. So the narrative of the film is to damage palin who is seen as a threat to obamas relection even if she doesn't run,because of her ability to push republicans to the ballot box, and also to show the two staffers as sacrificing themselves as they knew palin if she became VP could have become president, They are seen as saving america and the world from a deranged political mercenary. When the fact is they are traitors and no one not even the democrat party would hire them for a political campaign because disloyalty is a cardinal sin,trashing the candidates they worked for not matter what their private opinion,should stay that private.The Mcain campaign before even Palin came on the scene had huge internal difficulties which both wallace and schmidt are partly to blame for.So who in their right minds would hire them. Schimidt also hangs himself as it was his decision to push palin to mcain. If he is telling the truth about Palin,which he isn't but lets just say for a moment he is,that the film is accurate,schimdit looks a complete idiot. The only place wallace and schimdt are welcome is the left wing MSCBC where the likes of alsharpton works.

    2 She has never said anything hateful about any minority ,in fact unlike rick santorum palin has a gay fan club,former hillary clinton supporters it is a complete lie that palin has anything against gay people. She for instance has a similar view on gay marriage that obama does. She might have strong religious views , but she doesn't believing on imposing those beliefs on others and interferring. There is a Gay man running for congress as a republican who said her was inspired by Palin. Palin actually while a social conservative is more on the libertarian wing of the republican party, ron paul territory to be honest. While the neo cons, the bush wing of the party tolerate her more than paul she isn't mates with them.

    3 The nasty attacks just show your prejudice and why america is very divided.

    You know Michael Gove, the tory cabinet member is an admirer of sarah palin and feels she could well become president?He was on the BBC a while ago defending her against a bunch of bedwetting sneering lefties. I do think much of the dismissal of palin comes down to her gender and a bit of snobbery.

    The reality is Bill Clinton is perhaps one of the best political minds of his generation,and he recognises Palin as very talented and a serious political player. He told the democrats in a briefing during the 2010 elections if they didn't take palin seriously they would lose big. He was right.

    Crosshairs and Gabrielle Giffords

    You do know the democrats were doing the same with the crosshairs business on their maps as well? You do know that the nut had been stalking Giffords for some time sending her angry letters,making threats and was angry with her for voting a certain way ? You do know that relatives of one of the unfortunates who was slaughtered has criticised giffords for not taking these threats seriously and asking the local cops or federal authorities for additional protection and also to investigate the nut? You do know that nut was not a registered Republican let alone a conservative but was registered as an independent? You do know that said nut, had high quantities of psychiatric drugs in his system as well as recreational drugs including a herb notorious for causing delusion,he in fact had a satanic altar in his back garden...

    This is partly why I think many republicans in fact some conservative MP's in the UK like Michael Gove and Nadine dorries support Palin.She is clearly a target for the left wing. Most of these slurs against her do not have any basis in reality. Next you will tell me that Palin is somehow responsible for the nut who stalked Paris Hilton....

    I could list for you several real threats palin herself and her kids have had against them fact is there are nuts out there,and being in the public eye puts a big target on your back for all kinds of whackos. But I suppose you would think she was whining and should 'suck it up'. This is what is known as Palin Derangement syndrome. irrational ideas and judgements against a public figure.I think the basis of it comes down to the fact she is a woman who achieved all she did without spreading her legs, using her husbands political contacts and crucially didn't use her 'victimhood' or disparage men as feminists demand to get to the top.

    She is a woman who many identify with in america , giving voice to the voiceless, she comes across as quite ordinary (although underneath she is a highly skilled political player) and I think that scares the crap out of the political establishment. She has the potential to majorly shake things up in america, and they on both sides would rather keep their corporate corruption activities going. She cannot be bought, if she could she would be where Romney is now and there would be a whole different narrative in the media about her.The GOP and their media contacts would have annointed her. Believe, me she is far better than romney could dream to be.
