BLITZER'S BLOG: 'Game Change' doesn’t disappoint

(CNN) – Washington insiders were at the Newseum last night to see the new HBO film, “Game Change,” about Sarah Palin and the 2008 race for the White House.

I really wasn’t sure what to expect but I was very impressed with the finished product. It kept my interest for the entire two hours.


Watch The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer weekdays at 4pm to 6pm ET and Saturdays at 6pm ET. For the latest from The Situation Room click here.

    Since elected republicans at the state and national level have focused all their energy on attacking women's rights, their campaign slogans for 2012 should be, "Probe baby, probe."

    Why would I want to relive such a sad experience in American History ?

    I'm just know starting to feel normal after the 8 years of Baby Bush.

    Four years of recovery, and now Mitt Romney wants to play Dr feelgood.

    The GOP told me gas would be cheep after we killed Sadom , they lied about the WMDs .

    Has Sarah 'refudiated' the republican docu-comedy?

    Sorry, Wolf. I have no interest in watching "Game Change" anymore than I care to listen to you and your cohorts drone on and on and on and on about Palin, Romney, Gingrich, Santorum (or any other yawn factor) all of you dish out nightly. I had enough of Sarah Palin in '08. Trying to recreate her "magic" is a useless endeavor more befitting to the very foolish who actually do still support her. Then again, this (too) applies to all the other Republican candidates now in the running to replace her in the also ran – also lost category of Republican stupidity.

    The book’s other focus – the election of Barack Obama – is actually a sideshow in the film.
    The election of Barack Obama has actually been a sideshow in real life. And Washington has become a political circus. Imagine bringing the 2nd wealthiest American's secretary to a State of The Union address to make a point trying to raise taxes. Really? We need to lose this clown and get on to the business of running a government. Romney 2012.

    I am looking forward to Mo-Town releasing Mittens songs of national pride. Maybe he will do a rap of "America the Beautiful" as Lil' Mitt.

    It would be interesting to see this version of how someone so woefully inadequate as a politician could be considered as VP material. On first impression, there's no doubt Sarah comes off as charming. However, the poor women can't
    string two sentences together. Apparently McCain's camp was only interested in fluff and not substance.
