Posted on 03/09/2012 9:02:44 AM PST by Lucky9teen
"The Undefeated," a documentary about former Alaskan governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin drawn from her memoir, "Going Rogue: An American Life," seems to have been made as a piece of political promotion for the 2012 presidential race. But before "The Undefeated" premiered in a tiny number of theaters, Palin announced that she would not run. The film did not do well, either financially or critically.
Now it has found a secondary purpose running on Reelz Channel as an answer to the much-touted HBO film "Game Change." Where "Game Change" portrays Palin as a woman professionally unqualified and personally unprepared for the national arena, "The Undefeated" presents a modern-day Joan of Arc, coming out of nowhere to galvanize the troops before being thrown to the lions.
That this is literally the image the screen shows when her vice-presidential run is discussed along with images of ravenous sharks, exploding volcanoes and a harrowing car crash tells you all you need to know about the film. That it ends with recently deceased conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart calling Republicans who failed to support her "eunuchs" is just a double dose of loony-tune sprinkles on top of the crazy cake.
'Game Change': Five craziest scenes
Which is too bad. The film starts with a very effective montage of anti-Palin sentiment, setting up what could have been a thoughtful and even revelatory exploration of why Palin caused people to burn so hot with either adoration or hatred.

This b**ch Mary only WISHES she could be as courageous, successful and popular as Sarah Palin.
God I had the media................and their hell bent twisting and spinning of everything good as bad and bad as good.
Mary McNamara is a bad person. Sarah Palin is a good person. Enough said!
If you really are a "teen", then the place to start is to stop watching the television and take up a career inside the media. TV has been overwhelmed by the very powers you despise, but when you watch it you give them the power to pummel you. We need folks to get trained, go inside and recapture the ground.
You may consider just how many conservatives actually attend movies, pay for music performances, give their money to the left. It is amazing how we squawk about their views, then pay them to keep talking.
Sarah has been brutalized because the loudest voices hate morality, hate the Scriptures, hate her speaking about caring for a normal family, rather than extolling homosexuals, adultery and immorality. You are observing both a spiritual war and a social war.

This is all I need to read from the article.
Fact is, Palin WAS subotaged by the McCain team. Refudiate that.
Not a teen...haven’t been one in over 22 years. ;)
But I agree with your point(s).
"Game Change" portrays Sarah in a negative way. I wonder what the writer thinks about THAT movie?
Well, it would help if I actually READ the article before responding. ;o)
