Sarah Palin’s Feature Length Film To Premiere In June

When is enough enough? Real Clear Politics reports:

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 premiers 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.

    It might be interesting to see her in a Playboy shoot…. with all the usual air-brushing of course!

    She’s a butter brain…she looks nice, but-her brain….!

    I had to look twice to make sure this wasn’t on the Onion… it’s bad when real life stories are routinely more bizarre than the satire stories…

      Just “Real Clear Politics”…which is Fox-like in its fatuous praise of neo-con darlings. The florid praise and lack of details about real issues and liabilities is par for the course.

    I live in Iowa. I wonder where it’ll premier. I’d love to start a boycott movement and hopefully make it flop like a fish.

      Unfortunately you would probably end up feeding the mess and having a complete back fire. You know the Repubs don’t like people to be equally mean to them.

    I hear it is going to be allot like Transformers 2 except instead of the Decepticons fighting at the pyramids it’s just going to be 2 hours of Paling yelling at poor people to go get higher paying jobs and buy their own health insurance.

      Sad and true. That’s one of those movies where you laugh because if you don’t you’re going to start crying…
