New Palin Documentary "The Undefeated" To Premiere In Iowa

"I want to make sure that America is put back on the right track, and we only do that by defeating Obama in 2012. I have that fire in my belly."
- Sarah Palin to Greta Van Susternan, last week.

Governor Sarah Palin has been biding her time, and it appears to be paying off. The new Gallup poll shows her just two points behind frontrunner Mitt Romney among Republicans, and that's with her still not officially in the race.

Another sign that she may be gearing up for a run is a new documentary made by conservative film maker Scott Bannon that will premiere in Iowa next month, as well as in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada - all early primary states.

The movie, entitled "The Undefeated" came about when Governor Palin contacted Bannon about making some videos focusing on her work as governor of Alaska. After doing some preliminary work on the subject, Bannon said he would not only produce a full-length feature film about Palin, but that he would finance it himself. Ultimately, he reportedly spent upwards of $1 million in the process.

Conroy said, "A lot of people, even Sarah Palin's biggest fans, don't really know anything about her record in Alaska. And that's really what the film focuses on. Her record in Alaska as governor for the first two--and-a-half years that she was in office, the only two-and-a-half years, was very impressive for the most part. She accomplished a lot on oil and gas issues. She really was the kind of maverick that's now become sort of a cliche. But that's what attracted her to the McCain campaign. She had approval ratings that were consistently above 80 percent. And she accomplished a lot for the state. She was really a transformative governor in a lot of ways."

"So I think what the movie tries to do is it tries to reintroduce her to people who may have already written her off. You know, she became sort of a firebrand for conservatives in the campaign in 2008 and afterwards. But this is really going to try to recapture her independent streak."

Bannon is totally correct..Governor Palin accomplished more in her two and a half years then some of her predecessors did in two terms, and ultimately she only resigned because of an organized and concerted attempt to bankrupt her and her family, because she was honest enough to admit that attempt was preventing her from doing what she promised to do for Alaska and because in Sean Parnell, she had someone she could trust to carry on successfully.

The film is still in the editing stages, but the above trailer shows how she beat down Exxon when they tried to hold on to valuable leases without drilling - and has a shot of her without those famous glasses and the up swept hair, incidentally!

I still say that if she gets into it, she’ll enter the race in mid to late summer after everyone else starts flaming out, and given what I see on the economic horizon, there's no doubt in my mind she could win the White House.

please helps me write more gooder!
