It's not just the depiction of her shocking ignorance—at one point, she has to be told that the Queen of England doesn't conduct that country's foreign policy, while at another, she is confused to hear that Saddam Hussein was not behind the September 11 attacks. She's also absurdly vain, going on the Atkins diet in the middle of the race, which leaves her drawn and out of it. Sometimes she appears on the verge of a nervous breakdown, angrily smearing her lipstick ("I hate this makeup!") or murmuring, "I miss my baby. I miss sleeping with my baby." It seems more a film about a demented ingénue than a politician.
