I got back home a bit ago to get kids and make a final run through before the packers arrive. It is messy. Horrible. I can’t understand his inability to work with me on this.I’m glad I have 12 days without seeing him to think about how this is going to work.I don’t want to talk about that anymore; I’m too disappointed.

Last night I watched Game Change on HBO with Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin. Oh My God. It was so good. Julianne should win a ton of awards. I am going to admit to having a curiosity about Sarah. We are the same age, have a bunch of kids, working women in a man’s world. Y’all get it. C’mon.
Please understand, my politics are waaaaaay to the left of hers.She would think I was a hippy liberal. Oh Yes.
When the casting was announced originally I had a hard time imagining Julianne as Sarah. DUUUDE. Girl was Sarah. She looked like her and she sounded just like her.
I found some of it hard to watch, like the fact that she was really, really unaware of foreign policy (N. and S. Korea are 2 separate countries (For real? 2?) and Saddam Hussein organized 9/11). OMG.
I know more than her. And I am not even the Governor of my own nest.
Also, she became very irrational and came very near to a nervous breakdown during the campaign. McCain’s people had her evaluated at one point! This of course was very interesting to me. I determined that she has a personality disorder. She was pathological in her determination to have her own way. She wouldn’t let anyone help her and she was so far over her head. Also, I found it interesting how little contact she had with John McCain throughout the campaign process. He seems to be a nice man and like he wanted to do the right thing. Throughout the movie, I kept hoping he would connect with her and give her guidance. Man needed a pocket brick.
That woman seriously needed some guidance.
And maybe a slap upside the head.
Per the movie, she jumped on the VP bandwagon when asked to be his running mate and agreed to a whole lot of stuff that she refused to do on the campaign trail. She refused to prep for her interviews (such as the disastrous ones with Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson), which she subsequently bombed. Then we see her demanding her staff be fired for allowing her to be interviewed by them at all.
She seems to have had a whole bunch of people fired.
I am guessing they are the ones that wrote this movie.
Payback is hell.
I know people will be critical of the movie and say that it was left wingers making a smear movie about Sarah. But it was very favorable to McCain so I don’t believe that is true.
I did find some admirable traits. She was an absolute bulldog in her protection of her children while on the campaign. It portrayed her as needing her children and becoming unglued when she was away from them for too long and being very fearful about her oldest child’s safety in Iraq. She fought for Bristol, who was pregnant, not to be fodder for TV hosts. Of course it didn’t work. It portrayed her as having star power and charisma which for all of her faults is true. Her team and McCain were shown scared to death of someone asking her a question and then watching in amazement at how well she would do making speeches.
But damn, she was no where near capable of being Vice Prez or heaven forbid,
We must remember these things if it is ever more than a passing notion that she run for public office again.
Beer Monkey free to good home.
