Are you going to watch HBO's Sarah Palin extravaganza Game Change tonight at 9pm, or are you going to be busy living your life? Sarah Palin is certainly opting for the latter since she's made no secret of the fact that she thinks very little of being the subject of a feature-length film, something women such as Clara Barton and Hilary Clinton still have to look forward to. When asked if Game Change might be the Palin family Saturday night flick, the former Alaskan governor told ABC,
I believe my family has the right priorities and knows what really matters. For instance, our son called from Afghanistan yesterday and he sounded good and that's what matters. Being in the good graces of Hollywood's ‘Team Obama' isn't top of my list.
That's right — Sarah Palin is as high above all that Hollywood bullshit as Woody Allen or Marlon Brando. Why would she watch a movie about her unsuccessful stint as John McCain's running mate when she lives everyday in the shadow it has cast over her life? Unless Sarah Palin saves the world from an invasion of Russian vampires, the further we wander into the 21st century away from the 2008 presidential campaign, the more we'll think of Palin as living proof that America is only ever a few swing-states away from giving its nuclear codes to the most indiscriminate magazine reader.
