Over the weekend HBO will air Game Change, the controversial movie based on the equally controversial book of the same title. On Sunday, March 11 at 2000 / 8 PM EST, REELZ will bring The Undefeated to TV, with encores on March 12, at 2200 / 10 PM EST and March 25 at 1730 / 5:30 PM EST. Unlike Game Change, The Undefeated tells the true story about Sarah Palin’s accomplishments as Governor of Alaska, how she brought reform to her state and how her enemies tried to destroy her.
Garrett Marquis: Game Change Promotes Steve Schmidt, Nicolle Wallace
LaDonna Hale Curzon, Executive Producer and Host of Sarah Palin Radio interviewed Garrett Marquis, who worked alongside Gov. Palin as a member of the lead advance team during the McCain-Palin 2008 campaign, thus he knows the truth about the events that transpired during the campaign. Marquis, who was at the Washington, DC preview, said Game Change is little more than a promotional tool to benefit Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace. Marquis said the “movie was entertaining, and made to entertain,” without regard for the truth. Further, Marquis said the movie does not even reflect the perspective of the book which shares its title, but does reflect entirely the perspectives of Schmidt and Wallace. “It’s a movie that promotes a few people who were paid to consult for the movie,” Marquis said. Gov. Palin is so unique that no one could do a perfect job in playing her, however, Marquis said the movie got the physical details and looks correct. About the only other detail they got correct was her ability to energize crowds. Curzon said she did not think the Todd Palin character was anything like Todd either in behavior or looks. Marquis shared her assessment.
“The whole movie to me is just a joke,” Curzon said. “They went through a whole lot of trouble to get the details right, but they got the plot completely wrong.” It appeared to Curzon that the producers hoped by getting the details right, it would cover the false plot. No one connected with the movie contacted Marquis to get input from him about any key facts or details, but several of his friends and colleagues were contacted. Marquis reiterated that the movie was made to reflect the views of Schmidt and Wallace which are negatively predisposed to Gov. Palin.
Curzon aked Marquis why the left is still obsessed with Gov. Palin when she is neither running for office, nor currently holds any office. Marquis said, “the left is always looking for someone to be obsessed with. If it’s not McCain, it’s Mitt Romney, and if it’s not him, it’s Sarah Palin.” Republicans tend to find solutions, and Democrats try to blame to fire up their base.”
Curzon is the Executive Producer and Host of Sarah Palin Radio. Since Sarah Palin Radio was launched in 2008, the program has been covered on MSNBC, CNN, WUSA, “America’s Morning News,” Agence France-Presse TV, SVT Sweden TV, PJTV, United Press International,The Washington Times, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The New Yorker magazine and numerous blogs and radio shows. The executive producer and host was named “Worse Person in the World” by Keith Olbermann on his MSNBC show and acknowledged by Gov. Palin in her best-selling book Going Rogue.
