Sarah Palin has responded to HBO's trailer for the movie Game Change, in which she is depicted as inept and unstable. Palin's video response uses real news clips from immediately after her speech at the Republican National Convention and of her performance at the vice presidential debate against Joe Biden, at which they both beat low expectations (he by biting his tongue, and she by not falling on her face).

Her historical pastiche ignores the part of the 2008 election in which the novelty of her candidacy wore off and she became a liability to the ticket.
