Ah, you gotta love revisionist history, especially when its just in time for an election.

In case you haven't heard, Sarah Palin is the subject of a new hagiography documentary, "The Undefeated" (an ironic title for many reasons), which wants to paint her as a "warrior" politician for the little people while ignoring that she resigned as Governor of Alaska in the wake of charges of ethics violations, launched her own self-serving reality show as well charged $100,000 to speak at the inaugural Tea Party convention. So much for grassroots politics. You probably won't be surprised to learn Stephen Bannon, who has previously made documentaries on Ronald Reagan (”In The Face Of Evil”) and the Tea Party movement (”Generation Zero”), is behind the camera. Nor should you be surprised that it looks absolutely amateur.

But, if you're looking for something a bit more critical or least with lots more innuendo, shock documentarian Nick Broomfield is also working on this own Palin movie and as been shopping it around town. His film includes interviews with Palin's parents, friends, colleagues and folks like ex-legislative director John Bitney and ex-brother-in-law Mike Wooten. We suppose if you watch both of them you'll wind up with a balanced portrait of the politician. Check out the trailer for "The Undefeated" below; it opens on July 15th. [THR]

    so, basically Armageddon is on, as scheduled.

    This moronic lady is a Big Fat Joke - even much of the Republican Party is ashamed of her . I am always in awe of Sarah Palin's blissful ignorance. She treats the public office like a joke and a marketing tool to promote herself for fame and profit. But, I give this woman some credit, she continues to prank people to fall for her circus side-show act.

    What's to fear? She's a Kardashian. Her existence is defined by her ability to draw attention to herself and make money from it.

    Wait, did Devin Faraci write this post? Never understood the fear of Republican women by internet movie writers so much.

    Scary only if you're a liberal cowering in fear.

    Movie blogs have an obligation to be free of political bias, apparently.

    @vic

    what does she have to do with politics?

    If she was interested in public service she would have completed her term as governor instead of doing a reality show.

    whatever....why do I let thoughts of this disgusting human being cloud my day?

    @vic what's your point?

    This film is simply another publicity stunt to make Palin what she really wants…. not the presidency, but cold hard CASH. Palin is for $ale and is making it rich on your dime with every book, speaking engagement, and movie ticket that markets her image and sells her looks (it’s certainly not her choice of words which got her this far.) Just watch her rolling in the money with an indecent proposal on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/ecstasy-of-sarah-palin_15.html
