New Documentary May Herald Palin Presidential Bid


Alaska’s former Governor remains tight-lipped about whether she will seek the Republican nomination in the 2012 Presidential race. However, a new documentary about Sarah Palin’s time as Governor may foreshadow a bid.

“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,” read an article on “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.”

Palin, who did not have any editorial role in the film, has seen a rough cut of the documentary and is reportedly pleased. Bannon is well-known for his conservative documentaries, having made “Generation Zero,” a film about the origins of the Tea Party movement. Bannon has titled the Palin documentary “The Undefeated.”

Although Palin was not actually interviewed for the film, “Bannon acquired the audio rights to Palin’s 2009 bestseller, Going Rogue, and the former Vice-Presidential nominee’s voice guides the film through the various stages of her career in Alaska,” the article read.

“If she does decide to run, ‘The Undefeated’ will be the key element to her initial coming-out party. The film’s impending release — and the frenzied media attention that it is sure to generate — will serve as a vivid wake-up call that despite the many obstacles in front of her, Palin’s entry into the race would turn the campaign on its head in an instant, just as it did in 2008.”
