Palin to Iowa for movie debut

Washington (CNN) –- When the Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated” makes its premiere in Iowa next week, the film’s star will be on hand for the big debut.

The production company behind the film announced Saturday that Palin and her husband Todd would be in Pella, Iowa, for the showing on Tuesday.

“We are very excited to visit historic Pella and its opera house and look forward to seeing the finished film for the first time with fellow Americans from the heartland,” Palin said in a statement.

Iowa, which holds the first contest in the presidential caucus and primary calendar, is key for any politician thinking of running for the White House. Palin has said she is contemplating running for the Republican presidential nomination.

“The Undefeated” is a feature-length film produced by conservative filmmaker Stephen Bannon. The movie, which cost $1 million to produce, takes a favorable look at Palin’s record as governor of Alaska, including reform efforts. It also covers her entrance onto the national political stage as Sen. John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election.

    Ah, Pella, Iowa. The Paris of the mid-west. Good place to bury this film in the nearest landfill.

    The GOP Elites and liberals nightmare that just won't go away! I’m voting for Sara Palin if she gets in. Sara is not a polished politician which is good we have enough of them in Washington now. She is not like Bachmann who does alot of talking but has a record of very little accomplicments. Sara on the other hand does talk but has a record of accomplicments to back it up. What she accompliced in Alaska in that short of lenght of time is amazing. 80% approval rating isn‘t bad until the Lamestream media and liberals attacked her to the point were she couldn’t get anything more done because of the lawsuits. She will stand toe to toe with the big boys and that is a fact!

    This propaganda documentary is simply red meat for palin’s small base of rabid fans. As palin’s bud, John Ziegler, the creator of the pro-palin “Media Malpractice” documentary about palin said recently in a Daily Caller piece: this new documentary “will have absolutely no significant political impact.” AND he says “Quite simply, the evidence is overwhelming that Palin would get crushed by Obama in such a resounding fashion that it may even threaten the Republican hold on the House and the party’s presumed taking of the Senate.“

    I wonder if all the lines in her documentary rhyme like in Dr. Seuss books.

    "A favorable look at at Palin's record as Governor of Alaska". Hmmm.... must be a very short movie. She wasn't there long enough to do much. Palin and her admirers are currently thrilled at their own self-gratification. When she gets out into the real world, where she actually has to speak to the press off script, and talk about things she's going to do that are positive, rather than whining about all the things that are wrong with the country, she's not going to do very well. It would be best for her ego and the egos of her followers to quit now, then write a book about it, blame her shortcomings on everyone else, and give speeches at 100K a pop. That's Sarah!

    It would be funny if no one showed up. But of course the media will be there giving her free publicity. She would be nobody if not for the media.
