Get a sneak peek at Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin HBO‘s latest anti-Republican flick. The former Boogie Nights star Julianne Moore, 50, will play a 43 year old Sarah Palin during the 2008 Presidential election based on the 2010 book, Game Change, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.
Here is a look at the Cast & Crew:
Eric Kessler, Co-President of HBO – Gave $2,300 to Obama for America
Richard Plepler, Co-President of HBO – Contributed over $15,000 to Democrats in 2008, including $2,300 to Obama for America and another $500 to Obama for America, on 7/31/08 (isn’t that more than the allowable campaign contribution?)
Sue Naegle, President of HBO Entertainment – Gave $2,500 to Al Franken for Senate and $1,150 to Friends of Rahm Emanuel, who would later be Obama Chief of Staff
Len Amato, President of HBO Films – Gave $500 to Obama for America on 1/27/08

John Heilemann, Co-writer of Game Change – No found donations; however, on an April 18, 2010 airing of “The Chris Matthews Show,” Time columnist Joe Klein stated that Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, “rub right up close to being seditious.” To that, Heilemann added, “”And Joe’s right and I’ll name another person, I’ll name Rush Limbaugh…”
Mark Halperin, Co-writer of Game Change – No found donations; however, in October 2004 Halperin sent to ABC News staff a memo about coverage of the U.S. presidential election directing them not to “reflexively and artificially hold both sides ‘equally’ accountable” and that both John Kerry and George W. Bush used “distortion” in their campaign, but that Kerry’s distortions were not “central to his efforts to win.”
Danny Strong, Adapting Game Change for the television – Gave $2,500 to the Obama Victory Fund on 9/30/08. In addition, he wrote Recount, a 2008 fictionalization inspired by the true events regarding the 2000 Presidential. It starred Democrat Kevin Spacey and was also produced by HBO. ABC newscaster and consultant on the film, Jake Tapper, stated the film is “a fictional version of what happened” and “tilts to the left.”
Jay Roach, Director – Gave $2,300 to Obama For America on 1/31/08. In addition, he directed the left-leaning HBO film “Recount.”
Julianne Moore, Actress – Gave $5,000 to the Democratic White House Victory Fund on 6/30/08 and another $250 to the Obama Victory Fund on 9/06/08 for good measure

The Leftist list working on this project just keeps getting longer.
So, when this made for pay television comes out before the 2012 election, don’t expect an unbiased look at the story behind the 2008 election. In fact, expect unkind and an unflattering look at the Republican Party, Republican voters and Republican candidates. Clearly, timed to be aired before the 2012 election.
Just one more reason why HBO is no longer an acronym for “Home Box Office,” but for “Helping Barack Obama.”
