This is Palin's plan for fighting back against the truth. A two hour movie filled with Palin mythology and misinformation. Update!

Courtesy of Real Clear Politics:

Shortly after Republicans swept last November to a historic victory in which Sarah Palin was credited with playing a central role, the former Alaska governor pulled aside her close aide, Rebecca Mansour, to discuss a hush-hush assignment: Reach out to conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon with a request. Ask him if he would make a series of videos extolling Palin's governorship and laying to rest lingering questions about her controversial decision to resign from office with a year-and-a-half left in her first term. It was this abdication, Palin knew, that had made her damaged goods in the eyes of some Republicans who once were eager to get behind her potential 2012 presidential campaign.

The response was more positive than Palin could have hoped for. He'd make a feature-length movie, Bannon told Mansour, and he insisted upon taking complete control and financing it himself -- to the tune of $1 million.

The fruits of that initial conversation are now complete. The result is a two-hour-long, sweeping epic, a rough cut of which Bannon screened privately for Sarah and Todd Palin last Wednesday in Arizona, where Alaska's most famous couple has been rumored to have purchased a new home. When it premieres in Iowa next month, the film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin's prospective presidential campaign -- an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won't run

Obviously this is a movie, much like Palin's books, that will really ONLY play to those people who already worship Sarah Palin. 

I seriously doubt it will create any new converts. Not this late in the game.

However it completely puts to rest ANY question of whether she is running or not.  She most definitely is!

Perhaps we could get Frank Bailey to watch the movie and review it for us. He could easily see through the bullshit and tell all of us what was REALLY happening behind the scenes. Now THAT would be a great post!

Update: Is anybody really going to buy this?

Bannon dramatizes the theme of Palin's persecution at the hands of her enemies in the media and both political parties, a notion the former governor has long embraced. Images of lions killing a zebra and a dead medieval soldier with an arrow sticking in his back dramatize the ethics complaints filed by obscure Alaskan citizens, which Palin has cited as the primary reason for her sudden resignation in July of 2009.

Palin is the victim of her own stupidity, and arrogance, and no paltry one million dollar film is going to be able to change the fact that more and more people are learning that reality every single day.

And by the way, this is not something that is widely known, but there is ANOTHER movie being made about Palin (No not Game Change) that will be much more truthful, and much less helpful to the Grizzled Mama's political aspirations.  It is also worth noting that the film certainly cost more to make than a measly one millions dollars! (I think porn costs more than that to film these days. Though come to think of it, this might very well be considered the soft core version of Nailin Paylin.)

That's right, the forces of truth and justice are capable of creating both books AND movies

    This movie will speak to her faithful just as the Dunn and Bailey books speak to the skeptical. There's no changing the minds of those that love her and nothing can change he minds of those that dislike her. This documentary is merely the "Game Change" for the faithful. I doubt that this film will garner her any more than the already faithful 25% of the GOP that love her and would vote for her. She will never have enough to win the election, even if she somehow wins the primary.

    She's figured out a way to rewrite her life and avoid any gotcha questions from the lamestream media. If she appears anywhere or talks to anyone live, it will only be stump speeches with no questions, or appearances on Faux Noise to her most supportive pantysniffers. All questions pre-screened of course so she can rehearse the answers her staff writes for her.

    I think that this movie is supposed to counteract "Game Change." It's funny that there wasn't that big a fuss about the book. But, Sarah is really frightened about the actors who will portray her and her family. They look just like their Palin counterparts, and nothing makes Sarah look more stupid than repeating some of her wonderful word salad, word for word. The movie will also show how unstable she was during a well managed two month campaign. If she couldn't handle two months, she can't handle anything longer.

  46. Anonymous7:10 PM

    The point is she totally blindsided bloggers, the major media broadcast and print outlets, and has created a p.r. mechanism that her opponents, left and right, will have to invest time and money to counter or their own ramped up strategy to keep pace with her.

    AGAIN, she's found a way to capitalize on new trends in the use of media that her opponents couldn't conceive of.

    Re: Anonymous at 6:37: Your assumption that documentaries cannot change minds is not based on fact. It depends on the craft of the film maker. I held Mohammed Ali in little regard as a compassionate, brilliant man until I saw "Fignting Ali". My beliefs were totally changed.

    So, too, has the perception of Mike Tyson been changed by similar documentaries. The list is long.

    Film is a powerful medium and Palin has scored a major P.R. coup by being the first to attempt to correct what her camp believes are falsehoods about her rather than by stumping, writing books, or investing in campaign spots--and she has done this without spending a dime of her own money or any contributions. The film was financed and directed by the man who successfully sanitized the image of the tea party setting the stage for the spanking of the dems during the midterms.

    (Bennett, by the way, is hardly a hack. He's filmed and directed for the BBC, History Channell, and the Discovery network. He's also won a "Best Documentary Award" at a foreign film festival.

    If you're counting on an amateurish film, you might want to prepare for disappointment.

    2) Prior to a campaign event, Sarah's crowd could be treated to the film
    3) Portions of the film can be made into campaign ads
    4) For Whale donors the film can be screened
    5) Have a special screening for the media, have the LSM have to sit thru it
    6) Write a book against the film to get free media prior to running
    7) Publish the film on facebook/Sarah Pac so media picks it up
    8) Use film at her presidential rollout

    I'm most bothered by the fact that Sarah will once again be the center of attention, which is what she craves most. The GOP race is so boring, the huge numbers of political reporters that were hired to cover the dramatic 2008 campaigns are chomping on the bit for some action, which this film will provide.

    The upside is that the GOP is no longer goose-stepping in lockstep and Palin's entry will divide the already fractured elements even further.

    Can't wait for the day that takes John Edwards' place as the most reviled ex-pol in America.

    Press release from these folks that Bannon makes films with here.
    I think their name is on a recent Supreme Court decision about Campaign financing. Note the mewntions of Palin in this press release.


    Washington, DC – On the heels of the premiere of “America at Risk,” Citizens United Productions announced today that they will premiere a new film “Fire from the Heartland: The Awakening of the Conservative Woman” on Wednesday, September 22nd, in Washington, DC. The film, with an all-female cast, is the first to tell the story of the awakening of a new generation of women that are at the forefront of today's re-born conservative movement.

    "We are very excited about “Fire from the Heartland” and the chance to have this extraordinary cast tell the story of women’s role in the leadership of the conservative movement," said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, and the film’s Producer.

    “Fire from the Heartland” features a range of activists, politicians, and commentators such as Phyllis Schlafly, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, S.E. Cupp, Dana Loesch, Michelle Easton, Sonnie Johnson, Jenny Beth Martin, Michelle Moore, Jamie Radtke, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, and Congresswomen Cynthia Lummis, Jean Schmidt, and Michele Bachmann.

    “From Phyllis Schlafly, Margaret Thatcher, Clare Boothe Luce, right up to Sarah Palin, and Michele Bachmann today, it really is stunning how much of the passion of the conservative movement comes from the women,” said conservative commentator Ann Coulter. “And, by the way, how much of the courage and the strength comes from women.”

    “Fire from the Heartland” was written and directed by award-winning director Stephen K. Bannon (“ In the Face of Evil,” “Generation Zero”). The film is the second film in a series led by “Generation Zero ” that looks at America at a crossroads and the rise of the Tea Party movement.

    “These women are extraordinary, and the awakening that is happening at every level of our society is astonishing. The story they have to tell about the grit, determination and love of country that underpins the Tea Party movement needed to be told,” said Mr. Bannon. “I'm proud that we let them tell it in their own words.”

    Tracing the long history of the many conservative women who have been the backbone of this great nation, from the founding mothers of our Republic to today's “Mama Grizzlies,” this powerful and compelling documentary honors the self-made American woman.

    Remember how Sarah's Alaska show was supposed to rehabilitate her image? It made things 10x worse for her - it was a complete fake and the "ping ping" TLC reality show music was the icing on the cake. Not good for her at all, and this one has FAIL written all over it too.
    I just want one thing out of this whole bizarre saga - the breaking of the true story that will be the demise of Sarah Palin. I'll call it "I shoved a Square Pillow up my Shirt to Pretend I was Pregnant". It will be a sure hit.

    It's so weird to me that she ends up choosing staff that are backstabbers.

    There are currently many many supporters who have had personal interactions with her and the family who call themselves their friends and regularly communicate with the kids. Some of these people work in their local and state govts. It doesnt shock me the Palin kids have friends like this, but it shocks me a little that Palin STILL trusts so readily even after all the past backstabbing from hypocrits.

    What a stroke of genius! I'll bet a movie dramatizing Sarah Palin's life will convince 100% of the undecided voters who don't know enough about her to form a solid opinion...

    Okay, she's got a 25% favorable opinion rating now, and now she adds ALL 10% of the undecided voters. Umm, let's see, she's at 65%-35%. Here we go, now she's only down... 30 points! Ugh, that smarts!

    So now, let's say that the movie is a BREAKTHROUGH and CONVERTS 15% of the die-hard folks who are totally convinced that she's a narcissistic, pathological liar on the verge of a breakdown. (15% x 65%) ~= 10%

    OK, now Sarah is down only 55% to 45%! Now, seriously, do you know what you call that?

    I don't think Sarah cares a lick about Game Change. Its hollywood. it's fictionized. its a characature. the description of the movie even uses the word fictionized.

I"m not doubting Bailey;s experiences but even with that, you all cannot say you KNOW her through him.

Sarah is running but she's been waiting for the film to be released and make its rounds before she makes an official announcement.

    Adolf Hitler, also, too, hired a videographer to make his "down time" seem simple and more like that of the little people. He was filmed at his chateau in Austria, hanging with his Jew-killing homies and their families, frolicking with his German Shepard, Blondie, and just being your average "Adolf Sixpack".

    Nevermind that he was seriously ill, both physically, psychologically, and damned for hell, because while he hosted 6 course meals at his chalet, millions of his "guest" prisoners languished in camps, starving to death, being tortured, humiliated, and deprived of any teeny little favour which one might afford another member of the human race.

    You are fucking retarded. This movie will not change minds. This "movie" will be scrutinized, and fact-checked for lies, just like her first ghost-written book. It doesn't matter if the film had $100 million dollar budget.

    You are a fool to compare "Fighting Ali" to this movie. That's different. No one in that movie wanted to run for president, silly.

    And political hacks can make movies, and win awards too, dummy.

    Palin is digging herself in deeper with this movie. People are sick of her of "blood libel," crap of always claiming to be the victim.

    And, no, bloggers have not been blind-sided. We can't wait to pick it apart. Palin is the one who will waste millions trying to de-bunk rumors that are actually true. She is so thin-skinned, and ridiculous, that she would spend an entire campaign, de-bunking "false-hoods" about her-self, instead of talking about things voters care about.

    You are sadly mistaken, if you think $arah Palin will continue to get away with with avoiding real interviews, and tough questions. And, you are mistaken if you think this film will help repair her image. It won't. Palin's game is old, and all too familiar. Oh, and predictable. This 2-hour movie is just a re-hash of the same old crap we have been hearing and seeing for the last three years, only in a different format. Releasing this movie will just make Palin look even more unhinged.

    This movie will be a failure. More people will see "Game Change" than that trash.

If she thinks she can do it with this movie, FB and Twatter (her version is Twitter), then someone in her family needs to step up, do the right thing and commit her ass to the rubber room ASAP. Delusional beyond words.

  114. Gasman8:35 PM

    This is a good thing. It will present Palin approved fictitious versions of events which will prompt more scrutiny of these subjects by the press. I hope that one of those subjects is the miraculous birth.

    I have the feeling that many in the press feel that they screwed the pooch by not properly vetting Palin in 2008. I'd be willing to bet that they want to make amends for their indolence the first go around. As a private citizen she is not of much interest, but the minute she starts really making any indication that she is running, it will be like blood in the water. The MSM will not treat her gently this time around. She will be grilled like no candidate ever. They ain't gonna' let her slip by this time.

    As much as Palin feels she was unfairly treated in 2008, she got off easy. The press largely left her alone and let her self immolate. For as much as she whines about being unfairly treated, she was handled VERY gently. Even the Couric interview was nothing but softball questions. Couric gets points for listening to Palin's answers and following up, but the questions themselves were giant marshmallows that any semi-competent politician should have been able to handle without busting a sweat. But not Palin.

    Palin seems unable but to play to type: everything she does confirms that she is a self absorbed narcissistic, lying, self aggrandizing moron. This will change nobody's mind: it will make her sycophants swoon and it will make everyone else's eyes roll and stomachs turn.

    However, who the hell would sit through a TWO FUCKING HOUR paean to Palin? Only her hardcore panty sniffers would willingly subject themselves to that masochism. The hours of my life are far too precious to spend them listening to someone tell me how great Sarah Palin is in her own tiny little mind.

    She is predictably ever the vain, snotty, imbecilic bitch.

    In other words, she's still Sarah Palin.

The fact that she and her family members keep coming here, and stressing to us how happy she is, is proof, that's she's not happy. We are obviously upsetting her. Fine by me. If she's so happy, why is she releasing this fictional movie about how she is being "persecuted?"

    You are the one who is biased, and can't see the idiot for who she is. $arah Palin doesn't know Barack Obama, yet she continues to talk trash about him, and make persoanl attacks against him and his wife.

    Barack Obama is not stupid. He has shown how smart he is numerous times. When has has Palin ever appeared smart? She can't even speak in complete sentences. And, Joe Biden is brilliant.

    Nothing to see here, folks. You'll see more polished, professional work done with the upcoming presidential campaign real soon for Obama in 2012. Best of all, the producers/director won't need a failed screenwriter (that's you, RAM) to create a bunch of contrived shit to paint a compelling portrait. How much "lipstick" would it take to "dress Sarah up" to make her more appealing to educated folks? Right, more isn't necessarily always better.

    Yes, I understand that not everyone has cable or follows a serious news medium. And yes, many people voted for W for the same ignorant reasons that some will continue to be a "fan" for Palin. Yes, most of these people have no idea that they are supporting a platform that will skewer their own rights and their financial future.

    We can try to let them know that they should save their $10 bucks, or at least give it to a worthy cause like Red Cross, instead of these grifters like Franklin Graham, Sarah Palin, Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn,et al.

    This way QuitterQueen doesn't have to actually go do the political meet & greets with the voters. She's moving from Faux, Twitter, Facebook and Discovery to "the Big Screen" -- well, if I had to choose an Actor/Actress for President - Ted Danson.

    Hmmm since this was all so hush hush - wonder if it violates the Faux contract??? And for Malia - hope they don't ask for or get any of that Alaska promo funds!

    That the producer of this film previewed the film with Todd and Scarah means that he can't come back at a later date and claim that this was independently done by him when the issue raises it's head when the film is presented in Iowa as her kickoff for her campaign. That means the 1 million bucks put up by this moron would be regarded as a campaign contribution and would have to be declared on her filings.

    It's also the matter that the story about the film reflects that Palin asked RAM to approach him to do a film. That confirms it was not an independent idea -- it was her's.

    Somebody save the article on the website describing how this all came about as we all know in Palin fashion, this will be spun in the future.

    Well, well, well. I live in Iowa so I'd love be a mole in the midst of the people of Walmart types at the theater and see what the next freak show has in store to reconfigure our minds and invite us to walk together with the enemies. koolaid may be served and you might not have to pay for that. I'll bring my own popcorn and be a noisy person that guffaws, laughs and giggles through the whole thing.

    They will kick me out before it's over (hopefully). I will make sure the showing in Iowa turns rather awkward. This is a country of free speech and I'll tell anyone who listens this is total propaganda and there are several insightful new books to read that may be of interest.

    And as a side note, I personally don't know anyone in Iowa who believes in this wing nut. And it's not like I live as a hermit either. I know lots of people here.

    Anyone from Iowa want to go as a group? That would be quite the event.

    All of Sarah's inner circle had blog comments already prepared for this latest propaganda announcement. Workin' on 'em for months. Lou Sarah will probably be submitting letters to the editor via her many reincarnations in order to blow kisses her way. Could you pathetic Palin family members and palinbots be any more pathetic?

    Answer is YES! You continually outdo yourselves proving just how blind you are.

    Make a fawning movie instead of actually meeting real Americans in Iowas, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, etc.


    ps And starring Marty Rutherford and Gene Therriault, both of whom were fired by Palin's Republican successor (Therriault for violating state ethics law by accepting a new position that he had helped to create as a legislator).

  150. Anon @7:13 PM $1 million for a 2 hour feature film? The production values must be absolutely stellar. I think a quality 60 second commercial costs more than that.

    The producer actually admits they used a lot of local AK TV footage, asking for unrelated footage to mask their true intent and avoid suspicion about what they were up to.

  151. Anonymous10:21 PM

    Is it really called "undefeated"? As in never lost? Didn't she lose some beauty pageant, and a Lt. Gov race? Oh and she ran for something in 08, too, lost pretty big. So yeah, she's "UNDEFEATED!" err untethered.

    I have a feeling this is going to be unintentionally hilarious.

    If Sarah shows her cult flick in churches, then all those churches should lose their tax-exempt status and start paying property taxes just like "reel Americans". Maybe it's part of Sarah's platform to try and increase municipal revenues. Brilliant.

    More on the Federal Election Commission's Citizen's United Advisory order. View at


    Giving this movie away for free, or being paid by certain broadcasters for the right to show it is critical to it NOT being considered campaign advertising.

    From page 6 of the opinion:
    Moreover, Citizens United states that it will not pay to air its documentaries on television; instead it will receive compensation from the broadcasters.10 See Advisory Opinion 2004-30 (Citizens United) (“[T]he very act of paying a broadcaster to air a documentary on television, rather than receiving compensation from a broadcaster, is one of the „considerations of form. that can help to distinguish an electioneering communication from exempted media activity.”). Therefore, Citizens United.s distribution of its documentary films by broadcast, cable, and satellite television, including the use of a video on demand format, DVD, and movie theater are eligible for the press exemption.

    There is more detail at the link.

    This activity of making and distributing these films is exempt from this Fec's disclosure, disclaimer and reporting requirements. From page 7:

    Although some of Citizens United's film-related advertisements also may be classified as expenditures or electioneering communications, courts have held that where the underlying product is covered by the press exemption, so are advertisements to promote that underlying product. See Phillips Publ’g, 517 F. Supp. at 1313 (citing Reader’s Digest, 509 F. Supp. at 1215). Thus, Citizens United.s advertisements will only come within the press exemption to the extent that Citizens United is not “acting in a manner unrelated to its [press] function” when it produces and distributes the advertisements themselves. See Advisory Opinion 2004-07 (MTV). Advertisements promoting activities that are not part of Citizens United.s legitimate press function, however, may be considered expenditures or electioneering communications. Advisory Opinion 2004-30 (Citizens United) (citing Phillips Publ’g, 717 F. Supp. at 1313).
    Because the costs referenced above with respect to film production, distribution, and related marketing activities fall within the media exemption for “expenditures” and “electioneering communications,” they are exempt from the Act.s disclosure, disclaimer, and reporting requirements.

    And in the footnotes it is O.K. for Citizens United to pay a theater to display the film in exchange for 100% of the box office receipts. Just like other members of the lamestream media do.

    The Citizen's United Supreme Court decision in action.

    Remarkable: you people have been on the wrong side of the odds for two years now.

    First, it was the collective opinion here her fame had a shelf-life of five minutes.

    Then, you kept pinning your hopes that investigations would put her away.

    Anonymous@7:13: The budget for "Endless Summer" one of the greatest documentaries of all time was $50,000. It grossed over $20,000,000 it's first year.

    The budget for "Roger and Me" was $200,000; it has grossed $6.7 million.

    "Touching the Void" was budgeted at about $550,000 and has grossed $13,000,000 worldwide.

    Enough said.

    Soon after, Levi Johnston, was heralded as the knight errant for your cause who would blow up Palin with
    his insider's rebvelations about the pathological existence inside the Palin household.

    Other pet theories expoused here:

    Palin was moving to Montana.

    Todd had tossed his ring into the murky waters behind the Palin homestead.

    The Palins were headed for divorce.

    You guys make Harold Camping sound creditable by comparison.

    And as far as documentaries go, the subject matter is immaterial if it's 1)Well researched; 2) well-crafted; and 3) informs.

    The documentary could be about creationists, ballet dancers, or prize fighters.

    Does she think she is going to run for president without talking to any media? That is not going to play in Iowa even if it does play in Iowa.

  160. Anonymous11:41 PM

    Either it will be the most boring or the funniest. People r just going to start laughing at her.

  161. This is pure desperation on her part. Again, it shows us just how unwilling she is to accept reality. She had a second book that didn't do anywhere near as well as the first, drew less than half the amount of autograph seekers, had Bristol on DWTS and her own reality show yet she's still sinking in the polls and the unfavorability numbers are rising. She doesn't get it, does she? The more we see her, the more we dislike her. Tuscon did a lot more damage than she realizes because of her "pity me" blood-libel speech and she still has the gall to move to Arizona! I don't think there's any way she's doing it for a run in the Senate because that's far too much work for her. She'd hate all that is involved in being in D.C. for half the year.

    No other previous Presidential candidate has had the airtime and media coverage she's had and she's still not liked. She never will be because she has no self-awareness. She doesn't realize that her lies have caught up with her and Bailey's book will probably cause the film to need editing. After all, she'd be contradicting herself with the movie after her own emails are released.

    The people in Iowa expect their candidates up close and personal, not on a movie screen. She's been seen that way and it hasn't worked but she just doesn't get it. Of course, her flunkies will NEVER tell her the truth. RAM is too busy kissing her ass and so is Crawford, talking about how wonderful the movie is. She can't revise the history of her aborted half-term as governor no matter what she does. Too many people will speak up now with Bailey's book revealing the real Sarah.

    She's finished but she's too stupid to realize it.

    Do not ever underestimate this fascist.

    It took Hitler years to achieve power in Germany, and it was the culmination of many factors. He never received more than 37% of the vote before he was named chancellor and suffered so many defeats people thought he was washed up, too.

    I never underestimate the ignorance and fickleness of the voting public, either. This is a propaganda piece in its entirety, a cult of personality movie to show her in the best possible light.

    Anonymous at 7:10, they can try to "reinvent" her all they want, but here's the deal: They have already milked the persecution meme to death. The blood libel video, coupled with these 3 books and emails that she wrote are all examples of her unbridled blind ambition that highlights just how severely damaged she is. The hour long "persecution of Sarah Paylin II" is only going to add to the evidence that has already piled up against her. She's a rabid narcissist who lacks the most basic discipline; a reactionary at her core, SHE will be the reason that she will never be POTUS. SHE cannot help herself; sick sick woman as she is. No million dollar slick media ad is going to help her

    Gryphen, If you have any input on the reality based other Palin film, I hope they will emphasis the following:
    1. Sarah P Heath's stellar leadership demonstration during the Alaskan villages' (Emmonak) crisis of 2008/2009. Her preemptive responsiveness and preparedness to head off such a catastrophe as well as her foresight for a repeat of the following year. And especially how she interacts with her constituents, especially Nicholas Tucker, as he raised the red flag to this upcoming crisis.
    2. Sarah P Heath's dependence on others to do her elected job. Ex: Wasilla mayor - additional position needed for a small town job. Co-Governor Toad who participated in high level policy making which is way beyond the PR role of an elected spouse. Her absenteeism as Governor.
    3. Many of Sarah P Heath's decisions are based on one-up-man-ship.

    8:03 "see everyone for who they are and not what you want to see.....People who criticize her dont know her. theyve never met her."

    Wow, that is some lazy, poor writing. We all make typos and are not always clear in what we're trying to say, since this isn't more than quick casual commenting, but yours takes on a special quality.

    That aside, here's the deal:

    1) How about Sarah's supporters that have never met her but have come to "know" her through other means? Are you OK with that or are they discredited, too?

    2) Through your logic, the only way to know Sarah is to meet her (BTW- Personally meeting someone for 5-10 minutes, even an hour, is not going to be long enough to figure out if you support them for an elected office. It may have worked in Wasilla when she went around in cute little outfits to get votes but those times are over for her). Is she going to go around the U.S. and personally meet every person? Of course not. Plus she already said that she would run a campaign via social media not face-to-face and certainly not with people who's vote she doesn't already have. The reality is that people HAVE already made their minds up about Sarah based on what SHE'S put out AND from others who can speak ABOUT HER RECORD. There's no way I would take her word, or anyone's word for that matter, on what they claim about themselves. And it's obvious that Sarah and you don't like that.

    This film is to be a reintroduction of Palin? She and Todd border on derangement to reintroduce her after two years of orchestration to be in the public eye to win them over utilizing tabloid publications also.

    Palin turned off so many people with her I am THE victim here blood libel video. She is not acknoweledged as a contender except in polls. I get it that the Palins made out like bandits playing the persecution card and malicious assignations when confronted with their blatant lies.

    I predict this movie will actually be so far over a line and result in the opposite of what she and Todd conspired.

    Roger Ailes, I wrote shall find he was the victim of Palin pulling one over on him. Blindsiding people after conning them of opposites is a trait of the personality disorder. The pattern is to coldly calculate doing one thing while deceiving the target playing mind games and playing them as the fool. Later she will cry foul that Fox and Ailes victimized her intentionally discrediting them and assignating their character.

    The Palins have done this since she sought office in Wasilla backstabbing people after using them for personal gain. She takes all leaving people with degrees of destruction in their lives. People like this derive sadistic perverse gratification hurting others.

    This is how Palin and the pathology rolls.

  182. I, too, am curious if this will be a theater release. I'm envisioning a Rocky Horror Picture Show event. Could be fun. Gryphen, maybe you could release a Mystery Science Theater 3000 version with commentary.
