The Undefeated, a film portraying Sarah Palin as heroic protagonist. My, oh my, how could such cinematic scenes of pro-conservative propaganda have found their way into the public sphere for mass consumption? Great god almighty! A movie has been produced that fails to feature the progressive imprimatur! And all those pathetic yobs, that the Left laughingly refers to as The People, will be instructed with a counter-revolutionary message. Oh no! Could the proletariat be growing restless? Could there be a cultural power shift underway? Could it really be true that the Tea Party mentality is on the move?
Stephen Bannon’s documentary of the political rise of Sarah Palin is scheduled to be released on Friday, July 15th. And the film promises a hard-hitting look at Governor Palin’s battle with Big Oil in the wilds of Alaska as well as her media martyrdom at the hands of TV talking heads and Hollywood hipsters.
Jim Geraghty of the National Review Online provided his take on The Undefeated:
Before the screening, Bannon mentioned that I and other political reporters were about to watch the “X-rated version,” as opposed to a “XXX-rated version” that he envisions being released on DVD someday. Within the first four minutes, the reason for that cryptic remark was clear, and the X rating is well deserved: The worst sneers, insults, and furious denunciations from Palin’s enemies are presented in their original language, sans any bleeps. (A version in theaters is likely to bleep out the worst ones.) The F word and the C word make multiple appearances. What’s remarkable is that the acidic comments from comedians such as David Letterman, Joan Rivers, Rosie O’Donnell, and Tracey Morgan aren’t really jokes. There’s no punch line per se; calling Palin “slutty” or a “whore,” or offering some other (usually sexual) insult, apparently is supposed to be the punch line.
By far, the most eye-opening part of the film — and no doubt, most useful to the presidential hopes of Palin — is the second act, detailing Palin’s time as Alaska’s governor. Oil companies are the relentless villain of Alaskan politics; in retrospect it seems bizarre that the woman most hated by modern liberals spent so much of her career fighting tooth and nail with oil-company executives. During this whole stretch, there isn’t a partisan note. Alaskan politics is painted as a rigged game benefiting the politically powerful and influential with the citizenry getting the short end of the stick, time and again — until Palin appears on the scene.

Mrs. Palin has sure given those snots on the Left a run for their money. And whatever her political future, this lady has already won big.
