His lists of distinctions are somewhat arguable. For one thing, he makes some that I already mentioned and make no or little difference to the thesis. He also makes a number of errors of fact.

For example, Point 7 is false. The Palin family, like a lot of other Alaskans, hunt to supplement their food. Point 1 is also arguable In fact (spoiler alert) Katniss and her companion do propose to "quit" by committing suicide on camera. In any case, Palin did not so much quit the governorship of Alaska as give up an office that her political enemies had already made untenable with phony ethics charges.

I am not convinced.

My argument here.

I had a most irritating Friday afternoon and evening. On our way to see "John Carter" we were rear ended by a fool who clearly did not see where she was going. The car, oddly, has no visible damage. The same cannot be said about me. I spent several hour in agony in the ER as the muscles in my lower back did a cossack squat dance. Fortunately nothing is broken and I have pain meds in abundance for the next few days. But Friday is a day I would like a do over on.

John Nolte has seen "Game Change" and doesn't like it one bit.
HBO has not produced an "Avatar"-style piece of propaganda. That's chicken feed. This is "hook-nosed, money-grubbing Jew" propaganda. This is "over-sexualized 'negro' eying white women" propaganda. This is "gold-toothed, greasy smiling Mexican bandito" propaganda. HBO has aimed its flame thrower and fired in order to strip Governor Palin of her humanity and to reveal to the world - just in time after Super Tuesday! - the true awfulness of this hideous, grasping, Jesus-freaking alien who threatens The One.
