And by “she”, you know who I mean. Premiering in Iowa next month, “Undefeated”, a movie produced by former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) which tells her story. It will tell about her rise in AK politics, her governorship, her run with Senator John McCain (R-AZ), and her surprise resignation.
Bannon intends to premiere the film in Iowa late next month before expanding the release to New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. After the initial rollout in the four early voting states, the filmmaker will eventually release it to somewhere between 50 and 100 markets nationwide.
Wow, the first four primary states. What a coincidence.
There’s home video footage, interviews with associates, interviews with noted conservatives, and video of the Governor herself.
Divided into three acts, the film makes the case that despite the now cliched label, Palin was indeed a maverick who confronted the powerful forces lined up against her to achieve wide-ranging success in a short period of time. The second part of the film's message is just as clear, if more subjective: that Sarah Palin is the only conservative leader who can both build on the legacy of the Reagan Revolution and bring the ideals of the tea party movement to the Oval Office.
The film's third act puts a positive spin on Palin's 2008 vice presidential run, reminding viewers of her initially valuable impact on the McCain campaign by showing the Gallup poll trend lines that had the Republican ticket taking its first lead over the Democrats before the collapse of Lehman Brothers on Sept. 15.
It also gives an extended treatment to Palin's speech at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., her finest hour politically.
You don’t work to get a movie like this made, and then premiere it in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada, unless you’re running for President.
In the words of Mrs. Palin, “Game On!”
