PALIN PRE­MIERE

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

It’s not Hol­ly­wood in the heart­land. Still, Sarah Palin watch­ers sat up­right with the news that “The Un­de­feated,” a full-length fea­ture film about the for­mer Alaska gov­er­nor will make its de­but next month in Iowa. The pro­ject was fi­nanced and pro­duced by con­ser­va­tive film­maker Stephen Ban­non.

“The film is poised to serve as a gal­va­niz­ing pre­lude to Palin’s prospec­tive pres­i­den­tial cam­paign — an un­con­ven­tional rein­tro­duc­tion to the nation that she and her po­lit­i­cal team have spent months ea­gerly an­tic­i­pat­ing, even as Belt­way Repub­li­cans have largely con­cluded that she won’t run,” ob­serves Real Pol­i­tics na­tional pol­i­tics writer Scott Con­roy.

“The film will also ap­peal to staunch Palin sup­port­ers who have long cel­e­brated her bit­ing rhetoric and con­ser­va­tive pop­ulism yet know lit­tle about her record in Alaska and have per­haps writ­ten her off as pres­i­den­tial ma­te­rial,” Mr. Con­roy adds.
