Spoiler Alert: Obama Won
We haven’t read Game Change — as a rule, we only buy campaign books by Hunter S. Thompson — but as we recall, it was reviewed as Politico Whacking Material, chock full of breathless unsourced gossip that left you knowing less at the end than when it began.
It’s not like there was anything hidden about the 2008 election: John McCain was a dreadfully dull candidate whose desperation gave us (and quickly relieved Alaska of) Sarah Palin. If you missed it, you can catch the sequel this summer when Mitt Romney chooses Jan Brewer as his running mate.
But hey, the HBO version looks like fun casting: Ed Harris as Psychogeezer, Woody Harrelson as Psychogeezer’s campaign manager, and in the performance of a lifetime, Julianne Moore as Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. Need a blurb for the next trailer? “You Betcha! —Stinque.” You’re welcome!
