NTPA Alert: Is Sarah Palin “Undefeated”?

Is Sarah Palin “Undefeated”?

Former Alaska Governor, bestselling author, Fox News contributor and Tea Party darling Sarah Palin has long been rumored to be an unannounced candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. While her presumed opponents travel the country and cozy up to voters in Iowa and New Hampshire, it appears that Governor Palin has chosen a slightly different medium to make her announcement:

A documentary.

With the help of conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon, Palin’s documentary, “The Undefeated” will premiere this coming June and is presumed to be the opening salvo for an expected 2012 race for the GOP nomination. As “The First Post” reports:

The misleadingly titled film – as a 2008 vice-presidential candidate, Palin lost to Obama – tells the story of her rise from “a young pregnant wife married to a blue-collar husband” to governor of Alaska – and it’s an epic two-hour damage-limitation exercise.

The film uses rare photos and footage to give a behind the scenes look at the controversial former governor, including footage from her announcement for Wasilla mayor, shot in her living room. The initial plan for the film is to premiere it 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, Bannon will eventually release it to somewhere between 50 and 100 markets nationwide.
