Jason Recher, one of Governor Palin's closest aides, again went on the record to denounce Game Change as a bunch of lies. This time he did so in an interview with Sarah Palin Radio after he watched the hit piece, despite HBO's best efforts to deny him and other Palin aides the "opportunity." Jason traveled extensively with Governor Palin during the 2008 campaign, was constantly by her side, and probably knows what went on every minute of every day. He is still often by her side as she travels and speaks across the country.
Jason acknowledges that HBO got two things right in their portrayal of what transpired during the 2008 campaign, but I'm sure they're not two things people looking to feed their PDS are hoping for: Indeed, there was an election in 2008, and Governor Palin was on the ballot. How's that for two facts? The rest, Jason points out, is based on a "false narrative." In fact, he said if the Palin that Julianne Moore portrays were the real Palin, he'd have quit after just an hour! Yet some are trying to sell us on the notion that the film gives a fair and accurate account of Governor Palin.
I have always applauded Jason's character and the assistance he provides the Governor. He has repeatedly refused to remain silent while others have lied about her, besmirched her name, and attacked her integrity. In this interview with LaDonna Hale Curzon, he articulately shares with us the real deal--about Game Change, about why people are still consumed with taking Governor Palin down, and about who she truly is.
