A THIRD Sarah Palin Movie In The Works??

Published at: June 24, 2011, 8:11 p.m. CST by AICNStaff

I am – Hercules!!

1) There’s “Game Change,” the HBO movie (from the folks who gave us HBO’s “Recount”) that stars Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin.

2) There’s “The Undefeated,” a big-screen effort from Stephen K. Bannon (who was also directed 2010’s anti-Obama documentary “Battle For America”) about how awesome Palin was as mayor of Wasilla and governor of Alaska.

3) And now there’s a third Palin movie in the works from Nick Broomfield (“Monster in a Box,” “Kurt and Courtney”) which seems to imply, among other things, that Palin may have been too busy texting her cronies to be bothered with her job.

Find a minute-plus clip and Deadline’s exclusive on the matter here.

    Where does the obsession with this woman end?

    by slugracer

    Ok, so she's an idiot? Reporters camp out like its the OJ verdict when e-mails are released - what happened? If there is any dirt why isn't it out there? We keep hearing about how much of an idiot she is blah blah blah, she's so divisive blah blah blah - then enough with her already! If she is really as stupid as you people claim her to be than let her go the way of your boy John Edwards. Let's her join of his "two America's." Meanwhile, your celebrities friends are out there lobbying for "IP" enforcement that could also be a huge boon for the drug companies at the same time and they say fuck it! I need to make my millons! I'll lend my likeness and voice to help those jackasses in flyover country afford generic medication. Keep hating Palin because that's where the real crisis is -THE LADY HAS NO FRIGG'N JOB! SHE CAN'T PASS OR MAKE ONE FRIGG'N LAW - END THE BUTTHURT!

  • First, shouldn't Damon be entitled his own liberal belief, by your own logic? Second, was Palin attacked over her ideology...or because she gave ass-stupid answers to super-easy questions while running for a national office?

    sublime takedown by Damon

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    point made beautifully. The only reason it's not quite as hysterical as it used to be is that Palin still exists as a political figure. This in itself is absurd. The sequel to Damon's film presents itself: the folksy inbred fucktard that doesn't fade off into the background when they're supposed to. If not for McCain's stunt, she'd not in her wildest dreams have imagined herself as a remotely viable candidate; only problem is, when everyone else has returned to Earth, she's still up there, befuddled with grandeur and posing a flight risk.

  • I'm no Sarah Palin supporter...I think she's completely retarded, but Matt Damon is a tool for claiming he knows nothing about her then talking as if he does.

    by Doughboy

    Claiming there are 57 states, saying Austrian is spoken in Austria, saying Israel is a great friend of Israel's, confusing Muslim faith with Christian faith, confusing a breathalyzer with an asthma breather, saying P-E ratios are "profits and earnings ratios", saying we're here to honor our fallen heroes and "I see many of them here in the audience today", pronouncing corpsman as "corpseman" 3 times in a speech, misspelling Syracuse as "Sycasuse", signing "May 24, 2008" at Westminster Abbey when it was May 24, 2011, claiming that we don't need any domestic oil exploration as long as we properly inflate our tires, blaming the lack of jobs on ATMs and airport kiosks, saying "the time has changed for come", claiming the health care bill would lower people's premiums by 3000%, and confusing Afghanistan with Iraq when discussing troop withdrawals. Those are just a few of the many flubs by Barack Obama. Never mind the horrific record he's accumulated in 2 1/2 years. Yet some private citizen living up in Wasilla warrants the press sending hundreds of reporters(and recruiting thousands of American citizens) to sift through 24,000 e-mails looking for dirt that it turns out wasn't there.

    Sarah Palin: "I'm proud to be Governo---SQUIRREL!!!"

    by chromedome

    She has the attention span of the Dog from UP. The dog was more intelligent and dedicated.

  • It just doesn't make sense. If I go into a job interview to be, I dunno, a rocket scientist, and I tell the interviewer that the last time I built a rocket it exploded on the launch-pad because I quit half-way through the build, I should get my ass laughed out of the interview. Apparently she quit her governorship because she was tired of her kids being in the public eye and because Katie Couric made her look like a fuckin' moron. I don't care if she's a "feisty maverick."

    by Tarijeno

    The woman is a hypocrite, plain and simple. When the Republicans had the majority, she complained. When the Dems retook the majority, and didn't do shit for two years, she had the gall to say it's the Republicans' fault. The woman is the poster-child for partisan politics. Instead of spending her time trying to fix problems, she spends 100% of her time smearing the opposition so she can please her constituency and get re-elected in 2 years. ... that and she looks like the Crypt Keeper.

    You're not giving Pelosi enough credit. Why in just 4 years as Speaker, she added $5 trillion to our national debt(for those of you who never took civics, all spending bills originate in the House). And in just the last 2 years, her net worth increased by 62%. So she's been quite busy looting the treasury and destroying the lives of future generations while lining her own pockets. But remember, Sarah Palin is the evil one.

    Politicians are vile. Pelosi is a hypocrite who runs up the national debt and tells the little people of the world to ride a bike to work, work 100 hours a week, and pay their taxes on time. Then she turns around hops on an unnecessarily large private plane, flies to Hawaii, burns through tens of thousands of dollars of jet fuel, works three days a week, and spends the rest of her week at her vinery. Palin seems to be the opposite on Pelosi. Pelosi is really sneaky, and knows how to manipulate the system without being called out. Palin seems like she's literally making up half of the things she's saying. WTF was up with her Paul Revere story? The woman is clearly naive, which really frightens me, because she's proud of her naivety. Being stupid is so not-mainstream.

    Sarah Palin reminds me of Frances McDormand from Fargo.

    by Yelsaeb

    That is not a compliment. I could get into the political arguement, but what would be the point? Idiot conservatives are too stupid to realize that they're wrong. Sure the unemployment rate is fast approaching 10%, but the fault in that lies with the party in power, and that happens to be the Republicans. The prez may be a democrat but the Republicans own the majority in the House of Representatives, so the president can't get anything done. Republicans keep crying and kicking their feet wanting to keep things the way they are when things obviously need to change.

    Ok who's willing to admit

    by proevad

    that you believe in the same dumb ass shit that Palin believes in? Come on assholes--out with it. Is the earth really only 6000 years old? Did men really walk around with dinosaurs? Should Harry Potter books be banned from public libraries? Were the founding fathers all Christians? Is the book of Revelation really telling the future? Is Jesus coming back to earth soon? Come on, shitheads--who has the balls to agree with the twit? I fucking hate people who defend the obviously retarded among us. Stupid people and evangelicals like Bachmann and Palin are as much a danger to this country as radical Muslims are. Nationalize our education system NOW. FULL SCHOOL YEAR-- None of this outdated summer vacation bullshit--and outlaw home schooling. I'll get called all kinds of names for this post but not one of you--NOT ONE will agree with the questions I just asked. You know she's fucking stupid--just admit it.

  • Democrats had the House from 2006-2010 Democrats had the Senate from 2006-present Democrats had the Presidency from 2008-2010 The Dems controlled EVERYTHING for two years.... what the hell did they do? They drove unemployment levels to 10% and fucked the economy.... and that's about it. Here's the thing about conservatives; they're socially unpopular and make sometimes controversial decisions, but they get shit done. Liberals hit the campaign trails and tell idiot voters whatever they want to hear. Anyone else remember when Obama got elected, there were people at the inauguration being interviewed saying "I won't have to worry about paying for my mortgage. I won't have to worry about medical bills. I won't have to worry about my student loans. Obama's going to pay for everything!" People actually believed that, and for two years the Dems had the change to do everything they promised, but soon realized that these things cost money. The US electoral system feels very much like a high school popularity contest. I remember when I was in high school there were always two candidates for school president: The popular jock kid who promised that students could bring CD players to class. That lunch would be extended by 15 minutes. That girls could wear short-shorts, etc. And then there was the other guy who was pale and boring, but he knew the budget and made realistic, albeit unpopular promises. Long-story short the jock ends up as President, learns that he can't do anything that he promised and ditched the job ASAP.

    Well Palin as governor did sell the private jet and let go of the personal chef and driver. Whereas Pelosi as House Speaker was using military aircraft to fly herself and her family all over the country and drinking over a hundred grand worth of booze, all on the taxpayer dime. Which do you prefer making choices that affect your life? I honestly don't blame the politicians for the state we're in. I blame the people who keep electing them. I see folks tear down public officials who attempt to reform the system, often with personal attacks and smears(just look at proevad's post which is comprised entirely of falsehoods and religious bigotry). While at the same time, a woman like Pelosi who was for 4 years the most powerful woman in the world and 2 heartbeats away from the Presidency got nearly a complete pass from the mainstream media and a majority of the electorate. And certainly the folks in her own district had no qualms about sending her back to DC yet again(must've been all those Obamacare waivers that won them over). We get the government we deserve, people. If you hate Palin because you believe all the BS you've read about her(like book-banning, believing the earth is 6000 years old, the rape kit smear, the Trig smear, anything out of Levi Johnston's mouth), so be it. But spare me your complaints about unemployment, gas prices, food prices, the tanking housing market, the debt, the impending entitlement time bomb, and neverending wars(including Libya now). Because the elected representatives who are overseeing this disaster had to have been put into office by someone. And judging by many of the comments I read in threads like this, some of those folks are right here.

    So are the Democrats just pussies, then?

    by Tarijeno

    So apparently the Democrats weren't 100% in charge. They were 99% in charge, and that 1% controlled by Republicans was enough to scare the Democrats into not doing shit? As for the $11 trillion of debt. Under Bush's TWO presidencies the debt went from 5 to 10 trillion. Under Obama's ONE presidency it has gone from 10 to 15 trillion, but that's somehow the Republican's fault, right? In fact everything is the Republican's fault, and I can back that up using really limited knowledge and facts I just pulled out of my ass. In reality BOTH parties are at fault. I'm just tired of listening to incredibly biased party members saying that the country is going to shit and it's entirely the fault of one party. For the first year of Obama's presidency he could get away with the "We inherited Bush's problems" excuse. But after a year of testing the waters, you have to man-up, accept the responsibility of your office, and accept the blame. I'm personally sick and tired of hearing the Pelosi types THREE years after Obama was elected saying "Well it's all Bush' fault."

    Sarah Palin should be seen in the same light as Paris Hilton

    by Winston Smith

    Or Snooki. Or Kim Kardashian. Or whoever the fuck else, Richard Hatch... she's a reality TV star. She's not a politician. Regardless of your politics, she's as legit as a presidential candidate as Paris Hilton is. I mean, this woman LITERALLY quit her job as governor to start a reality TV show and write books to cash in on her name while it's still big. She is a reality TV star, period. And like George W Bush, I don't think she's an idiot. I think she plays up the whole folksy thing, and uses the fact (again like Bush) that she's not very eloquent AS A WAY to make people underestimate her. But as a businesswoman, you can't deny she can whore herself out like the best of them... like Paris Hilton. And yes, on a political note, it's pretty clear that since the late 1970s Republicans are bullies and Democrats are pussies and if the Democrats just had a spine half the awful shit that goes on never would have happened. And for all the hypocrisy on both sides of the isle, the Republicans have made an artform of it. Literally, to just see their "stance" on things and the way they manipulate people from Clinton to Bush to now Obama, it's fascinating. It would make the nazis blush. I'm not saying they ARE nazis, just that their propaganda techniques are fucking brilliant. I mean, hell, I've actually really been disappointed in Obama, though I think he has been getting better and I always knew no one would be able to do well their first year. It would be exactly The Wire, "here's your bowl of shit, eat it." And, I recognize that Obama is actually a fairly moderate Democrat, especially if you look at his general stance on most "hot topic" issues. But Jesus H... a good majority of Americans would hate anything he did. Like, seriously, name something where if Obama did it, you'd say, "well, I have to give him credit for that." I'm sure most people would have said capturing bin Laden until that happened. Even the Libya thing astounds me. You know what Obama should do? LIE... say Libya has weapons of mass destruction and anyone who disagrees with him is a traitor. It worked for Bush. You just gotta raise your lie and proclaim loudly that anyone who calls you on it is a traitor and a fool.

  • You republican goppies love and deitify Ronald Reagon, don't you? But he was an actor too, he also didn't had two brain cells to rub together, as you claim no actor can. Food for thoughs, goppie boys.

  • At least that's the natural conclusion of the thesis proposed by the goppies in here. So, this means that thebig hero of the goppies, Ronald Raygun, i mean, Ronald Reagan, is also one of those idiots who don't have two braincells to rub together. Obviously, the goppie idiot who started attacking Matt Damon because he's an actor forgot to do his research about their beloved Raygun, i mean, Reagan.

    Oh and Matt Damon...

    by Winston Smith

    ...never saw this clip, but MAN some balls on you dude. Walking right into the wolves den. Good for you. I love how Republicans always act so "shocked" by those kinda comments, yet they have no problem making blanket statements about Muslims, Jews, Liberals, whomever and often don't even claim that they are non-judgmental, just that, "see, libs do it too!" You know what's worse than making a judgment on another human being? Making a judgment on an entire GROUP of human beings. At least individuals have actions that they have done, and they alone, and you can't prescribe the sins of others to their own worth as human beings. Prejudice really is sickening, and it'll never go away, only evolve and change. At least most people agree "slavery" is bad, though hearing the indifference on message boards toward rape and sex trafficking makes me think that only our laws have gotten better, not our mindsets.

  • June 25, 2011, 3:15 a.m. CST

    Finally, I have to ask...

    by Winston Smith

    ...how exactly is America's current state the fault of Obama and the dems? While I 100% agree it's naive to blame it all on Bush and all on Republicans, as in fact many of the seeds that have sprouted into the shitty-Americas-future trees we're now overgrown with we're planted in the 80s by the most overrated President of all time... Reagan, a man far worse than W Bush (though Reagan's VP actually wasn't a bad president at all, even if his son, well, yeah...) But I can't help but wonder, how is it all Obama's fault? First, you guys understand that consequences have actions. Just because you run a car off a cliff and then give the wheel to someone else as it falls doesn't mean that person is the reason why the car is falling. Much of the Bush admin's policies and actions were destined to play out in the immediate 5-10 years from their inception. I mean, do you guys even UNDERSTAND the basics of economics? Also, the Stimulus plans were supported by both Bush and McCain, so if McCain won our economy and unemployment would probably be about the same, and even arguably worse. Also... Dems only had "full" control for 2 years, 2008-2010. Repubs had it for 6, 2000-2006. Does that not matter? And how can you blame the Dems (though they were pussies) for 2006-2008, yet you fail to blame the Repubs now for 2010+. I mean, Republicans have control of the House. Why aren't things fixed? What are their solutions? What, do they need more than just the House to do anything? Well then by that logic wouldn't the demmies been useless as long as Bush was president? You guys, blinded by pure and true hatred for Obama, hold a double standard unlike anything I've seen in modern politics before. Well, at least since Clinton was president and accused of murder. And when that didn't pan out, oh how dare he sleep around! If a dem does it he hates traditional values, if a repub does it he has to learn more from God and he's doing his best, right? DOUBLE STANDARD.

    cans to please explain to me what the fuck it is with you guys and "folksiness" which often gets used as a compliment to describe right wing politicians? Whenever you see people on news channels (especially that fantasy/fairy tale channel Fox News) talking about how awsome Palin et al are they love to describe them as "Folksy".......in most other parts of the world Palin would be considered retarded.... Cause I just dont get it, well that and why the absurd belief that becuase someone is a Christian, and/or has Christian values that makes them trustworthy, or a great politician ? Wasnt Hitler a Christian?

    If Sarah Palin was a Liberal Black woman..

    by ganymede3010

    Affirmative Action would be used each and every-time her name was mentioned. Could you imagine the outcry from the right if a Black woman who attended 4 lackluster colleges, spoke slang, had a college GPA of 2.2, who's husband was a member of a secessionist political party, and despite of all of that was nominated as the DNC's VP nominee? Hell, Barack went to arguably the most prestigious and academically challenging "University" on the Planet, graduated at in the top 10 percent of his class and he's still be hit the affirmative action label. Why aren't White Women (who are the largest benefactors of affirmative action) ever branded with the "Affirmative Action label? Sarah Palin is the epitome of an Affirmative Action benefactor. And the sad part is, she's going to be our next President. There's no way that America will re-elect Barack. The Republicans have done a remarkable job in turning White voters against him, especially White Males. Am I ready for Caribou Barbie to be our next President? You betcha....NOT!

  • "Folksiness" is basically politician's way of appealing to the moronic knuckle-dragging troglodytes of the Southern United States or anyone that came from that area. It harks back to their delusional Walton's fantasy of the simple good-old-days when minorities and women knew their place while gays were piratically non-existent and the white man ruled all. Republican's use this constantly to sucker their brainless base into voting for assholes who run the country into the ground (see George W. Bush) or try to dismantle the country at every opportunity (see the entire Republican Party or Conservatives in general). I cring with every fiber of my being whenever the Republican part trots out one of these fucking ignorant cretins, like Palin or Bush, who plays up this bullshit rural act to cover for the fact that they are wildly incompetent, voraciously greedy, egotistical and outright fucking STUPID! People like the Koch Brothers find these dipshits useful as it gets Rednecks to vote against their best interests based on wedge issues like Guns, Gays, Religion or Immigrants. Meanwhile, those with more than two brain cells in the Republican party rape and pillage the country then blame it on those city dwelling Liberals who have to always clean up the fucking mess. That's basically it IMHO.

Or the illegal war he started against a country that didn't attack the USA and how his criminal organization lied about WMD's? Or how he and his buddie blew the cover of a C.I.A. operative as political payback? Or how the Bush crime syndicate illegally wiretapped people? Or maybe you've forgotten about the economic crash that only happened because Bushco. deregulated everything and then handed over 750 billion dollars of taxpayer money to their criminal buddies on Wall Street? Or how about the fact that the fucking retard spend one third of his Residency on vacation "clearing brush" on the fake ranch he bought before the 2000 election just to sucker stupid cocksuckers like you, 5minutes, into voting for him? Or how about the war crimes he is guilty of authorize in the form of water boarding? Of course, none of these facts matter to a dumb shit like you. You snipe with your pathetic little taunts because, like all Republican's, you're a fucking ignorant little child. Reality is completely optional for a fucking inbred mongrel like you and you treat politics like its a fucking sport and that is because you have no fucking brain.

More important that the rich get tax cuts, eh?

    I wouldn't go that far with the Palin = Obama stuff, but I'd admit they are both puppets. Just to different masters.

  • Regardless of your own political opinions (obviously you're not repub), I think it's pretty clear Obama will win again and the smart Repubs are already coming up for excuses why he'll win again. Why is it almost guaranteed, barring assassination or a major scandal like undeniable compromising photos of him with little kids or something... for the exact same reason GW won again in 2004. Who the HELL do the Repubs have? All they have are complaints and bitching. And you have to be careful, just as with Bush people started to think, "well he's not THAT bad jesus why so hard on him," you'll see the same psychology with Obama except for the die hard teabaggers. People will begin to ask, "wait, why exactly is he so awful again, and how exactly are the repubs different," and that means there will be no passion for any Republican candidate, while many liberals and even some moderates will come out in support of Obama who is definitely getting his footing as time goes on. The Bin Laden thing was also symbolically important, because it became obvious how much the people who hate our current POTUS would hate him regardless of whatever actions he ever took or what state the country advanced forward to... Obama has a lock with 2012, and he'll probably be a far better president in his second term because his own policies will start having an active affect on the country and there will be less runoff from Bush's 8 years. There's always a good 3 year transition or so, especially in tough times, and in the end Obama won't be judged by the state of America today... he'll be judged by the state of America in the 2020s.

If you just mindlessly plug the policies of Progressive Europe into the US you'll get something that looks like Brazil(in a bad way), but this is exactly what Barack and his ilk have been taught since adolescence. This is their grail. Hell what we think of as Progressive Europe couldn't have existed without America footing the huge NATO bill for the past 60 years, and that bill is now coming due for them in a HUGE way. So Barack will win, and we'll have 4 more years of a limping economy that the Progressives will be able to play the Hugo Chavez game of "I can fix it... just give me more power" with. The middle class will shrink just as it has in Venezuela and in ten years America will look even more like just another economically divided South American country. So another decade down the drain all because the Progressives are trying to achieve a Cold War-era fantasy of the ideal Progressive state in an America that, until recently was a fully functioning(yet oddly non-progressive) country.

She's made millions off of books. "Oh, but she's an idiot. People should buy her books." Riiiight...lots of people right books that aren't worth the paper they're printed on let alone warrant best-seller status or a Pulitzer Prize. "Oh, she talks out her ass!" I'll bet for every gaff and political decision that liberals hate I can find two for Obama. The only reason there might be a third movie made is liberals trying to play gotchya-last. "Undefeated" was made unbiased without her input or editing and it shows that liberals are making up every negative thing they say about her. The liberal media was DESPERATE to find something scandalous in her e-mails and came up looking like total fools but they can't let that stand. Liberals are obsessed with destroying her to make themselves feel better about their own failures. It's called Projection.

    re: judging "republicans"

    by Winston Smith

    See, I have no problem with Republicans. I never said, "fuck Republicans." I have a problem with the actions of certain people, many of whom are Republicans, and you've obviously taken me attacking their actions to be an attack on them, which to a point it is... all that matters is what we do, not "who we are" to quote Batman. But it's true. All they've done is bitched and moaned, and the hostility they've shown to Obama is near dangerous levels, like, to the point where there's nothing Obama could do that wouldn't be seen as the ULTIMATE sin. And, to a point, you should have an opinion. This whole bullshit political correctness thing that you can't call people out for being idiots is absurd. The difference is, always have an open mind in that your mind could can be changed. Sometimes the Republicans do something where I'm impressed or agree... hell, Ron Paul, I disagree so much with his beliefs but I like that he seems to have come up with his opinions on his own and is more interested in talking programs and agendas rather than blind political attacks. And secondly... I don't think you get what "judgment" means. Judgment means a genuine hatred of the PEOPLE of a group. I know so many Republicans, most of my family is very conservative. I don't dislike them. I spend lots of time with them, I don't see them as any less of people or Americans than me. And I don't assume that just because they call themselves Republicans means they automatically agree with everything FOX News says or everything the Repubs in Congress do or that they think Bush was great or Obama is the worst president ever. Sure, a lot of them do believe that, but I don't blanket their ideology to them. However, I have NO PROBLEM calling out the Republicans in office for being by far the greater of two evils, for getting us into a mess and then stalling to do anything about it, and for attacking Obama on everything and anything. Please, change my mind house Republicans. Change my mind. And as much as I dislike their politics and their actions, I still wouldn't wish death upon them, I'm certainly not naive enough to claim that America would be a problemless perfect country without them, and I don't think they're all the same. There are exceptions, as seen with Ron Paul. There's a difference between HAVING AN OPINION and standing up for it, and judging someone. Judging usually means that you would literally treat that person differently, and also that many of your opinions on that person aren't based on facts of any sort but just random opinions or a general mean-hearted sense. Note I was a person here saying Palin is a very smart businesswoman that has manipulated the media to keep herself in the news and making $$$. I never called her some moron, just a woman who plays one for her own career advancement. And I feel the same way about Obama. So many of the attacks are based on blind rhetoric. I mean, how the hell can he both be a socialist bent on ruining America AND ineffective? If he's ineffective then isn't that a good thing, that he's not doing a good job at advancing his "socialist" agenda? I mean Jesus. No matter what he does, it's "wrong" in every single way. And hell, I've been disappointed in a lot of things, but I also realize that I'm not an economist, and that we're still in the middle of this. The stuff people said about Lincoln, I mean Hell, the country LITERALLY FELL APART when he was President. Obama may be seen as a failure in the long run, but it won't be for the reasons people are bitching about now. The 2020s will define him. If America does okay and gets out of this mess, he'll even probably be seen as one of the better Presidents and like FDR people will be bitching/praising/discussing him 70 years down the line. Regardless, Jimmy Carter he certainly ain't. If you want to compare him to another failed President, the closest he's got is actually George W Bush, especially Bush in his 2nd term, where he began to disappoint his own party people while the attacks from the other side were so venomous that NOTHING he did as President would ever appease them.

    Also, regarding the "liberal" media

    by Winston Smith

    That's bullshit. Jon Stewart does have this one right... the media is about sensationalism and designed conflict first and foremost. Politically, anyone with half a brain I would argue would see that there are heavy hitters on BOTH sides of the isle out there. And hell, if it leans any direction, it slightly leans right, because there's more of a market for that. That's why the majority of talk show hosts and radio personalities (i.e. THE MEDIA) are conservative. Air America - I think that's what it was called - flopped, because there isn't a market for that. The closest you get is The Daily Show, which is comedy first and foremost and way more moderate, even though it doesn't have to be, than 99% of radio and talkshow personalities. But like anything, people always like to be the "oppressed" group. That's always how it works. Thus the idea of some "liberal" media existing and if only they weren't there things would be grand and truthiness would spring free, well, humans have been using that bullshit excuse since the beginning of time. I'm sorry, I hope I'm not being judgmental. Oh wait, I'm attacking an opinion, not a group of people. You'll never see me say "all conservatives" or "all Republicans" are this, because I can't prescribe a viewpoint to all of them. That's impossible. HOWEVER, I can attack all those who hold a certain opinion and say that, to me, they're idiots. That's fair game. I still wouldn't treat them with any less respect as a human being, because everyone, no matter WHO you are, has a few stupid beliefs. That's part of being human, and anyone who denies that probably is one of the most blind and ignorant.

    "Undefeated" was made unbiased without her input or editing

    by Winston Smith

    No it wasn't. It was biased. It was made by people who are very open about their political beliefs. And SO WHAT? It was what it was. Nothing is truly unbiased, and to ever request that means you're a lemming. You should never, ever, ever take only one source or idea as gospel, this is a very dangerous approach to life. And yes, some things are more fair than others, but it's like the scientific method. The more proof you give, the more of an actual argument you make and back-up, the less biased your work will be. But it'll always have an opinion to it. That's why we're humans. WE HAVE OPINIONS, and nobody should ever take something as gospel, ever... Bias is part of being human. As Dr. Manhattan would say (this is still a nerd site, right?), just by being life, we have a certain viewpoint and set of beliefs on the universe.

Until all he was saying was comments about comments about comments, a one-man conversation with himserlf about nothing. Monkeys... typewriters... I guess, in some respects, that is what AICN is know for, even more so than just a bunch of guys trying to express themselves while searching for a bit of commonality. And this thread seems like a transparent design to get another dust-up going, but maybe a bit too transparent. In any case, I hope Bachmann runs too, but probably not for the same reasons as your desire. Yeah, both parties, not so much for anyone but special interest stuffing their coffers. If I knew thay were viable as candidates, I would vote for the farthest left candidate as possible, bit I don't want to waste my vote. We live in frustrating political times.

    Obama: "calling a spade a spade"

    BSB wrote: "Where's the clip of Matt Damon bashing Barack Hussein? I'll give Damon some credit for cutting through the bullshit and calling a spade a spade. He may be a loyal Democrat, but not blindly so. He called out Obama...." LOL I swear, because of how earnest he's being, I can't tell if BSB was mockingly using the old "spade" phrase OR if he actually didn't realize that he was accidentally typing a true politically incorrect pun!

  • Yes, and that SUCKS. Right? Do we agree the loss of the middle class sucks? I mean what always made America special was that we had such a robust middle class. Of course corruption and the rich controlling more than they should will always exist, THAT'S LIFE, that's how humans who are corrupt in nature work. But considering, we were doing pretty well. Then again, 90% of America's history has been very volatile, so this really isn't anything new. And the 1990s will come to be seen as the liberal 1950s, as in that decade will be idealized for generations to come. Hell, America's greatest domestic worry of the 90s was whether the president got a blow job or not. WHO FUCKING CARES???

My 'little jab' was merely an observation of some chump who was, at that point, posting for days and nights without a break. How else to describe someone who doesn't sleep and has no life away from the keyboard? Oh but wait. Once he was revealed to be a no-life shut-in, he concocts a story that is supposed to convince us otherwise. Excuse me if I don't know the entire background as I skipped probably over 1,500 of your posts, but from what I can recall: - you have 4 degrees in sociology, 5 in psychology and has 10 years of experience in the mental health field, all accomplished in 16 years - you have a girlfriend in the next room playing computer games while you're busy with your 216 hour posting marathon in the original Palinback (which I guess hasn't ended, since Melonman is still nibbling at your carcass, prolonging your suffering) - you have flesh and blood friends with whom you're sharing and amazing with your posting prowess - you have a mother who loves you dearly and is very proud of you I'm sure there are a ton more "details" but certainly it goes to show how cutting to the core everyone has gotten that you felt this need to conjure up a life story to make up for the lack of a life.

    After conducting a college band and watching Palin deliver a commencement address to a small group of home-schooled students in June 1997, Wasilla resident Philip Munger said, he asked the young mayor about her religious beliefs. Palin told him that "dinosaurs and humans walked the Earth at the same time," Munger said. When he asked her about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years, Palin said "she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks," recalled Munger, who teaches music at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and has regularly criticized Palin in recent years on his liberal political blog, called Progressive Alaska. So, is Palin an alien? - that would explain everything....

  • Sorry, I just don't believe Palin-haters. There hate and rage is unjustified. So you don't think she's smart enough and don't want her to be President. Guess what, neither do I. That doesn't justify the seething hatred and believing every made up story about her...

    Yup. The endless repetition of the minutiae of previous talkbacks, peppered with inane insights into people's characters fueled by lies and hateful taunts, in a vain, desperate attempt at getting attention while perpetuating an argument that exists only in one's head - that's pretty boring. Have fun with that. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. I came across a pretty bad, childish writeup of the new GL movie. As a fan, I was hoping that this would be outstanding, but comics to lived-action movie adaptations always seem to be disappointing - never capturing the magic that makes the comics so addictive and special. But this review consisted of a lot of blither blather, and it read as if the reviewer had not even seen it- the type of review where there are no specifics, just vague generalities that could have been thrown together from pre-release hype. Anyway, here’s a small sample: “Anyway, back to GL. Yes, the movie is worth seeing once. In the theaters. In not the "turd" that some want to portray it as. It's just that as you watch the movie, you want it to be better. It's like you have to ask yourself, "Is this all there is?" as you watch it. We've been waiting a long time for DC to move beyond Supes and Bats, and this feels like nothing more than what ruined Superman Returns. Too much modernizing, not enough heart. I give credit to films like Iron Man, Spider-Man, and, yes, both Ang Lee's Hulk, as well as The Incredible Hulk.” And “GL has a few great scenes and moments that you won't remember individually after awhile. Taken as a whole, though, I can see myself enjoying a second viewing if it ever came to that.” Goo-goo- gaga. Gee Wally, and it was pretty neat, and junk.

    Yes, apparently it's very tricky to come up with a great comic book adaptation. GL disappointed greatly, hopefully Cap will rock. Thor certainly was a stand-out effort. Looks like TF3 will rule the BO this weekend though. It's gonna be a monster, I suspect.

    Yeah, was hoping GL would be better, as I love comic book SF storytelling, in particular Tales of the Green Lantern Corps. I have in my head a great way for a GL sequel to begin. And Cap, it does look to be good so far. Even though comic book adaptationsto film seem to be hamstrung with devoting an entire movie to telling the origin, this one seems to be getting it more right than not, setting in WWII as a period piece. I have one, old WWII era Cap comic that I bought at a Worldcon back in 1968 - paid $25 for it then. Anyway, love comics - too bad we can't get theatrical release of animated comics adapations- which are always inherently better than the live actrion adaptations. Haven't seen All Star Supeman or Green Lantern: Emerald Knights yet, but will soon, hopefully this weekend. Hope some one eventually gets a live action adapation more right than not. Peace, bro. It's been a fun ride so far.

    $25 in 1968? I'm guessing it's pretty valuable today? I think part of the problem is that writers assigned to comic book movies don't really have the depth of familiarity with the medium as they should? Anyway, I'm looking forward to Snyder's Superman. Based on Watchmen alone I have confidence in him. I know SP wasn't a homerun (though I loved it) but I'll chalk that up to him being too in love with his own material to be objective with it. Kinda like Lucas. Peace, brother man. Have a great holiday if we don't chat before then.

    Hey man, I like your playfulness with the King of the Shitpile. Made for some entertaining nose-in-shit rubbing for an (almost) complete hate machine who thinks he is above it all, or something. And it sounds like he needs some new (imaginary?) friends... Maybe he can reminds us, again and again and again why we all suck, and why he needs to lash back uncontrollably because, well, he just has to. If he ever wants to engage me in a conversation about his (possible) love for comics, he is welcome, but he has made no real attempt to communicate with anyone else here except in a one-way hissy fit. Wait a fucking minute, what am I saying? He doesnt' deserve any human contact for all he has written. So fuckhim- paint - corner- y'know?

    I think the problem is in the story they want to tell with comic book adaptations. If a smart producer and creative director would just pick up a comic book - one with an excellent story and artwork, (already storyboarded!) and just film it --WITHOUT ANY CHANGES, without worrying whether or not every fucking person will be able to "get it", they will finally have a winner- the geeks will come, over and over, bringing their friends - like the Star Wars effect all over again. In other words, start the story -- in the middle of a story - not at the origin beginning. Watchman was good - close to ther original story- but compromised with changes. Oh well - I still enjoyed it.
