    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A documentary on Sarah Palin will have its TV debut on ReelzChannel, the digital cable network announced. "The Undefeated," which chronicles the former Alaska governor's career, will premiere March 11 -- one night after HBO shows the film "Game Change," which sees Julianne Moore portray Palin during her run as vice president in 2008. "We're thrilled to have yet another opportunity to bring a big story to viewers," ReelzChannel CEO Stan E. Hubbard said in a statement cited Tuesday by The Hollywood Reporter. "Sarah Palin is a charismatic figure who burst onto the political scene, and whatever...

    In honor of Presidents Day, Sarah Palin released a new video on her political action committee’s website, The move has some asking: is Palin preparing for a brokered convention? Entitled “Chords of Memory,” the video calls for restoring America — set against the visual backdrop of presidential monuments and Palin herself. Palin begins by saying: We stand today at the symbolic crossroads of our nation’s history, and all around us are monuments to those who have sustained us over the years in word or deed, the towering presence of the great emancipator who secured our union at the moment...

    MESA, Ariz. -- In a whispering campaign not ready to go public, some senior Republicans are so anxious about the state of the GOP race they are actually considering the unheard of: a scenario that would lead to another candidate entering the Republican primary race, and potentially an open convention. They are not unhappy enough, however, to go on the record calling for another candidate to enter the fray. In fact, when pressed, many Republicans say the chatter about another candidate is inevitable in this long and inconclusive primary process. They also say it's just not likely to happen. Why?...

    In my view, Rich Santorum is weak, a Charlie Brown type character for whom Obama (Lucie) will simply yank the ball away as we head towards massive defeat Not thanks- if Noot can't come back I'd prefer and open convention, Palin vs. Jeb Bush or some such thing. Mittens would lose in November due to insufficient contrast and a disgusted GOP base. I agree he's an improvement over Obama, and not a maniacal racist/marxist- BUT ...deeply resent having Romney stuffed down my throat by the GOP old guard. At this point is merely slowing the growth rate of the state...

    The United States of America is becoming more like Nazi Germany every single day. In fact, the Nazification of America is almost complete. The parallels between Nazi Germany and the United States of today are going to absolutely shock many of you. Most Americans simply have never learned what life was really like back in Nazi Germany. Under Adolf Hitler, Germany was a Big Brother totalitarian police state that ruthlessly repressed freedom and individual liberty. Under Adolf Hitler, Germany adopted socialism, dramatically increased government spending and raised taxes to astronomical levels. Under Adolf Hitler, abortion became legal in Germany, the...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's struggles in Michigan are fueling speculation that Republicans might have to resort to a doomsday scenario and launch a frantic search for a 2012 savior at their nominating convention in late August....How did Republicans get to this point? Romney's failure to get conservatives fully behind him and put down yet another challenger in the party - this time it's Rick Santorum - is causing angst in the party. Many senior Republicans do not think Santorum, a social conservative caught up in the U.S. culture wars over issues like abortion and contraception, has a...

    Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania has a commanding lead among Republican presidential candidates in Texas, according to a new University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll. Santorum would get the votes of 45 percent of the respondents if the election were held today, according to the survey. The other three candidates in the GOP race-former U.S. Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas--are clustered well behind. Gingrich got 18 percent, Romney received 16 percent and Paul garnered 14 percent.

    Sarah Palin is moving fast to discredit an unflattering HBO movie. Palin is releasing dozens of “behind-the-scenes” photos from the 2008 presidential campaign that show her smiling and laughing with the real-life characters — including John McCain and his hard-charging campaign manager, Steven Schmidt — portrayed in the upcoming movie “Game Change.”A link to the photo gallery — 67 in all, under the headline “Game Change We Can Believe In” — appeared over the weekend on the home page of, Palin’s political fundraising arm. The movie, set to air next month. stars Ed Harris as McCain, Julianne Moore as...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin discussed why she hasn't endorsed a candidate yesterday on FOX Business Network. Sarah said Newt Gingrich was the toughest fighter in the race. "You know that is what I'm saying today. I'm saying that David because Newt has learned through that school of hard knocks. And you know that is where character is shaped and that is where character is revealed. In times of controversy and conflict. Not at a time of convenience and comfort. I see that in Newt that he has learned, that he has been sharpened and strengthened through all of that...

    In the summer of 2009, when the outrage over the Democrats’ emerging health care reform bills was at its height, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was excoriated by the left for saying: “The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.” The roiling debate over the HHS decision to mandate...

    Former Alaska governor and most undecided nonpresidential candidate ever Sarah Palin said she was "game" to a future political office run on Fox Business -- and started a firestorm of speculation about brokered conventions and her possible role in making the Republican Party a strong presidential contender in 2012. Some have pushed the idea of her taking the vice presidential slot again. But speculation aside, when did Palin become the Republican Party's idea of the cavalry? Palin said she would help America any way she could. If it meant "running for office at some point in the future, I'm game,"...

    Yahoo! News Contributor Network ^ | February 18, 2012 | Mark Whittington
    One of the more fascinating aspects of writing about Sarah Palin is how other people react so irrationally to her. Julianne Moore, an actress who is purported to play her in an upcoming HBO film "Game Change," does not like her one bit. Big Hollywood has reported how the actress has trashed the politician she plays, claiming she was "unqualified" to be vice president. Now a new narrative is arising about the former Alaska governor that is more suggestive of Machiavelli than of a bimbo. The U.K. Daily Mail suggests, ever so gently, that Palin might be maneuvering to have...

    In respect of the candidacy of Hillary Clinton to be president of the World Bank, let us just say that it’s a terrible idea. This is not a quarrel with Mrs. Clinton per se; had we been endorsing in the Democratic primary for president in 2008, we’d have put in a word for her, even if by our lights Barack Obama has a more presidential personality. It happens, though, that we’ve followed the World Bank for decades, and the key feature of the whole World Bank system is the conditionality it imposes on its lending. Its presidency is a pulpit...

    The 10 most remarkable or telling polling stats from the past week: 1) From the CNN national poll of contenders Rick Santorum leads Mitt Romney in the South 32% to 30% with Newt Gingrich at 17%. It is thought by many pundits that the South is Gingrich's stronghold or strong suit. If these numbers are accurate, Super Tuesday may not go the way Gingrich wants it to go. There is a good chance Newt could lose both Tennessee and Oklahoma. If he lost his home state of Georgia as well, that would spell disaster. 2)PEW Research Approval/disapproval of Obama from...

    In a statement provided to The Washington Post, SarahPAC treasurer Tim Crawford said HBO’s “Game Change,” which is based on a popular book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann and debuts next month, is likely to be riddled with falsehoods. “I haven’t seen HBO’s latest effort at manipulating history,” Crawford said. “However, based upon the description and reports from people who have viewed the film ‘Game Change,’ HBO has distorted, twisted and invented facts to create a false narrative and attract viewers. They call it a docu-drama; there is little “docu” in it. HBO must add a disclaimer that this...
