Palin Says Movie 'Based on a False Narrative'

The former vice-presidential candidate says, 'I was never in a funk'

Onetime vice-presidential nominee and conservative commentator Sarah Palin isn't concerned about an unflattering portrayal of her in an upcoming HBO film about the 2008 race—and isn't impressed with actress Julianne Moore's portrayal of her.

The movie, to air on HBO on March 10, is based on the book “Game Change,” written by journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. The book chronicles the 2008 election, and Palin is portrayed as a loose cannon, on the verge of breakdown and difficult to train.

 

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Palin dismissed the film as being "based on a false narrative" and said she would not waste her time watching it.

"I was never in a funk," she said, smirking at clips of Moore's portrayal of Palin's alleged breakdown on the campaign trail.

"Thank God I have the right perspective on what really matters on life,” she said. “There's no need to be in a funk."

 

Palin said that all the film really proved was that she was a better job-creator than Obama—in that she's produced so many jobs for Palin impersonators. "The Sarah Palin Employment Act," she called it.
