On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sarah Palin addressed Julianne Moore’s less-than-flattering representation of her in HBO’s “Game Change,” saying the movie is “based on a false narrative” but also proof her public persona had a positive effect on the economy.

“I think we’re going to call that the ‘Sarah Palin Employment Act,’” she said. “You need to thank me to employing more people in their imitations of Sarah Palin than the president has put Americans to work. It is a stimulus act, goodness gracious.”

Palin told viewers she was sorry people would be wasting their time to watch the HBO film, and denied she was in a “funk” as shown in the film.

“I was never in a funk,” she said. “Thank God I have the right perspective on what really matters in life, Chris. There is no need to ever be in a funk when you know what right priorities are and what really matters in life.”

Palin also said she won’t be watching the film.

“I am ambivalent about it. I honestly will not waste my time watching it and I encourage others to find something else more productive to do,” she added.

HBO’s “Game Change” is a movie based on the book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann and is set to debut on March 10. Only about one-third of the book is actually played out in the film — the part that focuses on then-Republican presidential nominee Arizona Sen. John McCain and then-Republican vice-presidential nominee Alaska Gov. Palin.
