“It transports you to a parallel universe in which everything in the National Enquirer is true….More interesting is what we learn about the candidates themselves: their frailties, egos and almost super-human stamina.” —The Financial

Game Change is the New York Times bestselling story of the 2008 presidential election, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, two of the best political reporters in the country. In the spirit of Richard Ben Cramer’s What It Takes and Theodore H. White’s The Making of the President 1960, this classic campaign trail book tells the defining story of a new era in American politics, going deeper behind the scenes of the Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin campaigns than any other account of the historic 2008 election.

    “great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

    the great & average: fuck off and get lost.
    the small-minded: enjoy!

    1. sarah palin. in a way, she fares quite well. you gotta think about it like this: if one were to invite a chimpanzee over for dinner, when the monkey started flinging its own feces, knocking over bottles, yanking away the tablecloth… one couldn’t very well get upset, could they? palin is palin. gotta accept it.

    fun, of course, are mccain’s

    the great & average: fuck off and get lost.

    1. sarah palin. in a way, she fares quite well. you gotta think about it like this: if one were to invite a chimpanzee over for dinner, when the monkey started flinging its own feces, knocking over bottles, yanking away the tablecloth… one couldn’t very well get upset, could they? palin is palin. gotta accept it.

    fun, of course, are mccain’s strategist’s reactions after they realize exactly who and what she is:

    “Oh. My. God.”
    “She knows nothing.”

    for a while they suspect that she’s mentally unstable and hire a doctor to watch and analyze. and, when they question how she is always able to remain calm, to accept it all as it comes, to seamlessly change overnight from obscure alaskan politician to global mega-celebrity, she explains:

    “It’s all part of god’s plan.”

    2. john and elizabeth edwards. the big myth of the campaign, as understood by the edwards staff, was “Saint Elizabeth” —

    she did a great job of projecting an image of holiness, and much of it came down to a few things:

    1. she had cancer
    2. john cheated on her when she had cancer
    3. he fathered a child with a woman he was sleeping with while she had cancer.
    4. when asked why voters liked john edwards, this guy dared say what lots of people thought: “I like that he’s got a fat wife! I thought he’d be married to a Barbie or a cheerleader.”

    the reality of the situation, as per this book, is that john is a callow, shallow, self-obssesed and somewhat delusional fuck who carried on an affair with a whacked out hippy partygirl who, upon meeting people for the first time, handed a business card which read: “Being is Free: Rielle Hunter – Truth Seeker”

    and elizabeth. whew. she came from a wealthy family. john didn’t. she took every opportunity to make john well aware of this fact. regularly called him a ‘hick’. referred to his parents as ‘rednecks’. one time, a friend asked if john had read a book and she exclaimed, “Oh, he doesn’t read books! I’m the one who reads!”

    some of elizabeth’s greatest hits:

    “Why the fuck do you think I’d want to go sit outside a Wal-Mart and hand out leaflets? I want to talk to persuadable voters!”

    – when the staff was having trouble arranging her husband’s health care coverage she threatened to cut off the entire staff’s coverage until john had his. this attained a good degree of infamy within the campaign as the edwards’ were worth tens of millions and much of their staff worked for minimum wage or for free.

    – when john admitted to having an affair he continued to deny that the child was his (he knew it was) so that obama would tap him for attorney general and then when the truth came out, he’d already have the job. when elizabeth was asked if she believed his denial, she responded: “I have to believe my husband’s denial. Because if I don’t, it means I’m married to a monster.”

    – an excerpt: ‘At the terminal, the couple fought in the passenger waiting area. They fought outside in the parking lot. Elizabeth was sobbing, out of control, incoherent. As their aides tried to avert their eyes, she tore off her blouse, exposing herself. “Look at me!” she wailed at John and then staggered, nearly falling to the ground.’

    3. john mccain.

    an excerpt: “Fuck you! FUCK, FUCK, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck!!!” John McCain let out the stream of sharp epithets, both middle fingers raised and extended, barking in his wife’s face. He was angry; she had interrupted him. Cindy burst into tears, but, really, she should have been used to it by now.”

    the key to who john mccain became, to some extent, his ‘rosebud’, was the 2000 south carolina primary in which he was demolished by the bush team. mccain did better than expected in new hampshire and the bush team broke from the agreement not to go negative and created rumors that mccain’s adopted bangladesh daughter was actually the illegitimate child of a black hooker. they also told voters that mccain lost his marbles in the hanoi hilton.

    mccain couldn’t let that happen again. he hadda keep his maverick reputation but had to suck off the establishment; had to, in some ways, become the establishment. it was tough: the rightwing freakshow hated mccain, right-wing radio regularly abused him, the religious right doubted him. so he backtracked on his stance on torture. on amnesty for immigrants. he shut the fuck up about gay rights, abortion, stem-cell research, etc. and he decided that, although he wasn’t 100% sure of the surge, he knew he had make it the defining theme of the campaign and make obama look like the unpatriotic inexperienced pussy.

    fuck 2000. he was different this time. he was angry. stubborn. cranky. and he didn’t like barack obama at all.

    y’see, when obama was new to the senate, mccain, as he often did, saw a star quality to obama and approached him with the offer of co-sponsoring a bill to create a kind of bipartisan goodwill. a nice gesture. obama interpreted this as some kind of condescending patronizing bullshit and rejected the offer… with a form letter. fuck that shit, yo. mccain sent obama a nasty letter. and that was that.

    when mccain saw the freakshow he helped create… he was appalled. as his rallies became filled with wingnuts screaming out that obama was a ‘terrorist’ or ‘muslim’ or ‘arab’, he knew something had gone wrong. mccain frequently cites for whom the bells toll as his favorite novel. he should’ve read moby dick. and taken notes.

    4. bill and hillary clinton. bill is kind of a charmed guy now, ain’t he? pals around with both bush 41 & 43. is universally admired as the genius political brain of our time. and now that the right wing has a new hitler/marx/socialist/appeaser they’re free to make good on the ‘whores, buildings, and politicians grow respectable with age’ theory.

    but bill, as we remember, became unhinged on the campaign trail. and hillary was blunt: “i can’t control him”. her staff created a ‘war room within the war room’ to figure how to handle bill — his gaffes, his anger, his overbearing presence, his trips to l.a., miami, and las vegas aboard what the staffers called ‘air fuck one’…

    the clintons are kind of lovable, but they’re also kind of awful. incredibly calculating and scheming and manipulative and they fight real dirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrty.

    revealed is that clinton and bush 43 are great friends. in fact, through much of 43’s presidency, he’d call bill and they’d just hang on the phone for an hour chewing the fat. it kinda makes sense, actually.

    5. barack and michelle obama. you know how you watch a jimmy stewart movie and you totally dig it but it’s too much of a fairy tale? well, obama’s kinda like that. by every account he’s a real guy. drinks beer, smokes, hangs out… and he looooooves his wife and kids. never any rumors of indiscretions, no edwards or clinton bullshit. guy spends any free time he has hanging with michelle. he married up and he knows it. it’s kinda fucking adorable.

    yeah, he can be arrogant, but he’s not full of shit. and he can fight dirty. for sure. but – and this seems the most unbelievable part of the entire book – he absolutely refused to go for personal attacks against his enemies. when his campaign dug up some bullshit on bill and hillary’s personal life that was tested to be effective he nixed it. according to the book’s authors obama was genuinely afraid of turning into a bad guy.

    and his level of focus? remarkable.
    when one of his staffers asked about the mccain/palin team as it started going down in flames, barack’s explanation:

    “no fucking discipline.”

    the bit players. everyone loathes romney. i loathe lieberman. biden is, of course, a showboaty bigmouth, but we kinda love his pompous sinatraesque ways. mark penn is like jabba the hut only less charismatic. bush 43 is, at times, stunned by mccain’s lack of political acumen. fuck cheney.
