    HBO's 'Game Change' trailer: Gibson vs. Palin brings back memories of 2008
    Seeing HBO's latest trailer for "Game Change," the made-for-TV version of the 2008 GOP presidential campaign with John McCain and Sarah Palin, brought back memories of the early days of Z on TV when I was doing media-and-politics 24/7 -- and loving it....
  • The case for Romney

    The case for Romney
    Years ago, a friend told me a story from her days living in South America. The movie "Wayne's World" had come out, and she went to see it. She spoke English, but it was interesting to read the Spanish subtitles. For instance, early in the film, Wayne...
  • McCain: Still clueless

    It's good to see that U.S. Sen. John McCainis still just as clueless as he was four years ago, but I'm sure the Chinese were not as amused as I was by his warnings that the "Arab Spring" was coming soon to China. It's too bad they didn't point out to...
  • Is the GOP already feeling buyer's remorse?

    Is the GOP already feeling buyer's remorse?
    It's not unusual in politics for a party to nominate in haste and repent in leisure. In 2008, many Republicans feared before the election that they had chosen a loser in John McCain, and in 2004 many Democrats felt the same about John Kerry. It's known as...

    First look at HBO's 'Game Change' - A film so political in so many good ways
    I just walked out of a dark room after spending two hours with the screener for "Game Change," the HBO film about the 2008 Republican presidential campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin. Based on a best-selling, non-fiction book about the historic race,...
  • Arundel councilman uses ethnic slur during meeting

    An Anne Arundel County councilman used an ethnic slur during a council meeting held Thursday night to appoint a replacement for a vacant seat on the body. Councilman Richard B. "Dick" Ladd, a Broadneck Republican, referred to "gooks" from his seat on the...

    The NRA sticks to its (Florida) guns
    For those who missed it, the National Rifle Association's top executive got worked up into a full lather at the group's annual conference this weekend in St. Louis. Wayne LaPierre's ire was aimed at the "sensational" coverage of the Trayvon Martin killing...
  • Sarah Palin hitting back at HBO again -- and not very effectively

    Sarah Palin hitting back at HBO again -- and not very effectively
    After a failed attempt last week by her Alaska posse to discredit the HBO docudrama "Game Change," Sarah Palin took another shot at the film Thursday. But again, it was not very effective, and it looks like she is mainly helping create more buzz for the...
  • Palin TV-movie 'Game Change' pushes the limits of docudrama

    Palin TV-movie 'Game Change' pushes the limits of docudrama
    Sarah Palin says it's a lie. Her press spokeswoman calls it "sick." Other supporters of the former Alaska governor refer to it as a "hit job" — concocted by Hollywood leftists and the liberal media. Filmed in and around Baltimore last year, "HBO"...

    'Game Change' - Sarah Palin posse flipping out over HBO film  before seeing it
    Last week, I wrote about HBO's "Game Change" right after screening the two-hour film about the 2008 presidential campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin. You can read it here. I described the film as "so political in so many good ways," and predicted...
  • Gov. O'Malley can't wait for Palin portrayal in 'Game Change'

    Gov. O'Malley can't wait for Palin portrayal in 'Game Change'
    We all know what will be on this weekend at the Governor's Mansion in Annapolis. At 9 p.m. on Saturday, at least. "Game Change!" Gov. Martin O'Malleyseems pretty jazzed about the premier of HBO's movie about Sarah Palin starring Julianne Moore. "A...
  • Republican candidates may not be generating much enthusiasm, but neither is Obama

    Republican candidates may not be generating much enthusiasm, but neither is Obama
    There's no disputing that Republicans are surly these days. With the exception of South Carolina, turnout among GOP voters has been tepid. Hordes of commentators, me included, have argued at length that this apathetic grumpiness reflects a deep...
