I suggested this over at c4p, and I think the readers are game for it.
If you want Sarah Palin to run for President, then on October 4, bloggers, tweeters, facebook members, anyone with access to a keyboard, post a message that says “Run, Sarah, Run.”
Let’s see if we can make this go viral. If it does, it will scare the pants off the establishment on both sides.
Spread the word.
It will be FUN!
I am not a runner, but a jogger. Weather’s good so far on my neck of the woods, so this should be fun for the family to do-and I will get the triple treat of jogging, spend time with the family and have my ice cream.
Thanks to Pennsylvanians 4 Palin!
Slate’s Dave Weigel posted that Stephen Bannon’s documentary “The Undefeated” on Sarah Palin will be released on July 15. The release of this movie starts in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. From there, it will trickle down to other key states.
Let’s be honest; this information has been out ever since we found out about the documentary and it definitely has flipped upside down the Republican elites and liberals alike. Bannon is making interview rounds, promoting the documentary and answering over and over why he felt compelled to turn several short documentaries in a two-hour movie.
Tomorrow we will see a statement from a “major theater chain” that is set to announce a nationwide distribution. If my gut is right, “The Undefeated” will get the movie trailer, followed quickly by the movie itself about two weeks later, and outside I will see a separate marquee sign with title, date and times. Sweet!
Andy Barr from POLITICO wrote that the movie director has also retail plans for “The Undefeated,” where Wal-Mart could be key. I will not post snippets of his piece because it does reek of POLITICO material; go ahead and read it for yourself. My conclusion: It’s very encouraging to see the positive feedback from several people that have seen it, the buzz that is generating within the political circles and the Internet. Positive or negative, the reality is that there is a movie about Sarah Palin; that this movie attempts to clear the air about events in the past that have tarnished her image while at the same time, show everybody that she can run a country.

UPDATE: I added information on the bullet-point section below, with regards to Louisiana and Puerto Rico. I provided evidence of how Louisiana benefits from the film industry, and for those that don’t follow the “Twilight” series, Louisiana is where the film started. Right now they are still filming, but in Vancouver. A segment of the new “Pirates Of The Caribbean” was filmed in Puerto Rico. A proper link about that is below as well.
I hope that now this turns into a non-issue, considering how many incentives Obama has granted large corporations that have contributed to the Democrat Party.
Thanks, The Palin Express
It is still going on, my friends. Apparently, Governor Palin‘s Facebook post did not answer one of my reader’s questions. Therefore, I will place that comment here. I know the answers to these questions, as well as many of you who read here.
But I promised the best answers I could offer; therefore, I will attempt to get as close to the source as possible. The Daily Caller did not do their job as professionnal journalisms to distinguish or write about this mini-series. Homework on the matter could have easily been done and interview any and all people involved, and left her out of the picture. Unfortunately that was not the case.
So here it goes:
All I see is more of Ms. Palin’s patent-pending “I’m a victim” reaction to the media accurately reporting her own words and actions, and then her railing against the “liberal media” for being “mean” to her. According to Ms. Palin, she is the single-most-often misquoted person in the history of the written word.
So, I will put the question in so simple a set of questions that even Sarah Palin won’t be able to misconstrue, divert, distort or distract from a simple yes-or-no answer:
Was “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” subsidized, fiscally augmented, reimbursed, credited or remunerated in any way, shape or form by the state government of Alaska? Yes or No.
Did your TLC television show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” receive the aforementioned subsidy, fiscal augmentation, reimbursement, credit or remuneration because it became possible as the result of legislation you implemented as governor of Alaska in 2008? Yes or No.
Were you, Sarah Palin, or any investments or accounts held by you or for you, the recipient of ANY money – directly or indirectly – as a result of that Alaska payment/credit to the production company? Yes or No.
Do you believe that you should not be held accountable to the “feathering the nest” rule regarding legislators and profit from legislation? Yes or No.
Do you believe it is hypocritical of you to personally accept public money for a private television endeavor while you simultaneously speak out in favor of cutting funding for National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting System? Yes or No.
No punches pulled there, Ms. Palin. No obscure, unclear questions. No sandbags. Just a series of simple, easy to answer, yes-or-no questions.
I challenge you to reply to them each with nothing more than a “yes” or “no” answer.
I decided to look up some blog pieces that cover this same topic, right before I tweet about this. Here are the links, below:
- Doc Zero, at Human Events;
- USA Today explains why Baton Rouge, LA was chosen to film part of “Breaking Dawn;”
- On Location Vacations, website that shows ALL current films and their locations;
- Stacy from C4P answers what entails tax credits, production and incentives for films/mini-series and other documentaries for states like Alaska;
- Jim Geraghty at NRO posted an update that did NOT reflect the truth of Alaska’s incentives and tax breaks that Governor Palin, in a bi-partisan effort, signed into law in 1998 as part of her own agenda of “Back To The Future” where she’d benefit from filming “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” with TLC. State tax and federal taxes are totally different, and the state was the one that really got the benefit from its beauty and resources.
- Louisiana benefits greatly on their tax incentives and they have a website where all the information is broken down, and all the films that are currently in agenda. I posted this information on Ace’s website who ponders about the same non-issue; nevertheless he’s getting slammed as well.
- US Territories like Puerto Rico have also been excellent film locations, i.e., the new “Pirates Of The Caribbean“. Check out the carriage scene, the Fort, and the small private island. Scroll down where it says, “Fajardo, Puerto Rico”. The carriage scene, along with the fort was filmed in Old San Juan.
NOTE: Alaskans are quite happy about all the incoming tourism. How does GE feel about their benefits, tax breaks and “blind eyes” that they get from Obama?

This time Hollywood has taken notice of Governor Palin, and so far I don’t know how close the script will be based on the book, “Game Change” which covered the 2008 elections. “Game Change” was not 100% accurate with information about the campaign, as claimed by Palin.
So far, here are the details:
Oscar-nominated actress Julianne Moore will portray the former Alaska governor in the project, which will chronicle Palin’s burst into the national scene as a surprise vice presidential candidate in 2008. Directing Game Change is Jay Roach, director of the Meet the Parents movies as well as the HBO film Recount, which examined the aftermath of the 2000 presidential election with a focus on the Florida recount.
Game Change is based on Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s book about the 2008 presidential elections and follows John McCain’s campaign from his selection of Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election.
Danny Strong, who previously wrote the Roach-directed Recount, penned the script for Game Change. Roach is executive producing, with Strong co-executive producing.
As soon as more information starts trickling in, I will post more details. Stay tuned.

In an interview with Bill O’Reilly (where I really enjoy when he interviews Hollywood actors and actresses), Sylvester Stallone went to the show to promote the new smash hit, “The Expendables”. My favorite quote is the one I posted as title; not to mention that America should not apologize too much. It’s funny towards the end, all five minutes!
Hey Sly-that’s good enough for me too!
