Reader: "The Denver media is still stuck in the gutter"

Undefeated.jpg
God only knows what we did here to deserve the honor, but The Undefeated, the much-hyped 90-minute info-mercial for Sarah Palin, made its debut right here in little old Denver on Friday -- well, actually Highlands Ranch, but, you know. At any rate, given the maniacal fervor Palin inspires in her devotees, we almost would have been disappointed if our not-so-glowing review of The Undefeated was not the target of several lengthy, semi-coherent Republican rants. So suffice it to say that we were not disappointed. Reader JDCampbell submits a different review, one more in line with his ideology.

The movie was originally X rated until a few days ago because of the vile hatred put on this woman and her family by the media and Hollywood. Slanderous articles like this one by Westword are tame in comparison to the first 10 minutes of the movie. Funny that the Denver Post recently plagiarized an article written by Roger Moore of the Orlando Sentinel in order to express their misguided hated for Palin as well, so the Denver media is still stuck in the gutter.

Actual (professional) reviews are just starting to come out on this documentary with this excerpt from Redstate by Ben Howe:

"The film moves at a breakneck pace while still laying out a level of detail that brings you so close to the events, you feel like you personally experienced them. Even had the substance not convinced me that I had Mrs. Palin pegged wrong, the film itself would most certainly have scored high for me as my all important test was passed:

Did I look at my watch? No I did not.

In short, the execution of this film is excellent. But what had me and my wife blown away by the time it was over, was the avalanche of information and perspectives that had been hidden from us over the years. As I would like for you to listen to my interview with Steve, I will not get into the substance of what caused the change. I want you to hear it for yourself.

I pride myself on my ability to know when something is baloney, almost instinctively. On Sarah Palin, I was so incredibly hoodwinked that the one word that my wife and I agreed described how we felt after watching it, was shame. Yes of course invigoration, satisfaction and all the other things you experience when watching a good film, but about how we had handled our vetting of Mrs. Palin, shame was the word that best described it.

Shame for not bothering to look up her record.
Shame for not reading her story.
Shame for turning the channel when she came on the tv.
Shame for not listening to people that we had a great deal of respect for like Andrew Breitbart, Tammy Bruce, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.

As Breitbart points out in the film, the greatest shame is that while this woman was savaged to degrees you may not even realize yet, some of us sat back and let it happen. For me to buy into the media template and not defend someone who's only offense was being a conservative, is the absolute antithesis of what I stand for, and something that I shall never allow to happen again.

I urge you to see this film when it hits theaters tomorrow. And I urge you to put aside your preconceptions about who this woman is. You don't have to think she should be the next president to believe that the way she has been presented, even by conservatives, has been completely wrong."

This evening's movie has been sold out so check out the matinee.
I posted this review because Ben Howe actually saw the movie.

LOL, JDCampbell, you know what's funny? Is that, just like the movie you're so passionate about is called The Undefeated and is about somebody who is probably most famous for having been defeated, your "actual (professional) review" is not even by a professional reviewer. I mean, the part where he writes for Redstate kind of tipped us off, but, as expected, Ben Howe is not exactly the resident Redstate film critic, either. His last post: "The EPA Must be Stopped, And I'm Not Talking about Lightbulbs."

SARAH PALIN’S history of executive and leadership positions (in brief): 1996 - Elected Mayor of Wasilla-1999 - Reelected Mayor of Wasilla-2002 - Elected as President of AK Conference of Mayors by fellow mayors in the state-2003 - Appointed by Governor(and fmr Senator) as Chairman of AK Oil and Gas Agency (A major leadership post in the state’s most vital economic field and industry)-2006 - Elected Governor-2007 - Elected Chairman of Interstate Oil and Gas Compact, a multi-state/intl group focused on energy development-2008 - Nominated by GOP as Vice Presidential nominee after being selected by party’s Presidential nominee *** BARRACK OBAMA’S history of executive and leadership positions pre-presidency: _____________ That pretty much sums up my point. Anybody that thinks Sarah Palin is not capable of being a great president, may have their mind changed by reading about her accomplishments. She not only stood up to corrupt Republicans, she fired, fined, and jailed them. She not only stood up to big oil companies, she beat them at their own game, and brought them in line. "Conservatives4Palin" has a lot of information. Also, her book, "Going Rogue," and the new documentary film, "The Undefeated."Don’t judge her, at least until after you do research. If there is someone better to be our president, please tell me who.

Palin gets me off!!!
Palin gets me off!!!

Those doggone leftist Satan-worshipers need to stop seeing reason and start making love to cardboard cutouts of Jesus's favorite pill-popper, Rush Limbaugh!   Then there's the eyeleegulls!  Them tharrr eyeleegulls is gonna take over our country and impregnate our white, Christian daughters with their demon seed and that's why Obama bin Laden is spending our moneee and them Muslims is gonna steal my banjo with my NRA stickers on it.  Der da derr derr derr.  Everyone is out to git me and my kin, so wees is gonna hunker down in our suburban concrete-reinforced bunker and polish our guns.  I love Sarah Palin because she likes them tharrr guns, 2!!!!  Hyuk hyuk hyuk!!!  Dee da dum dum dum derr derr da dum.

Undefeated? Umm.... remember the 2008 Presidential election?

Palin is trying to use Karl Rove's rhetorical style.... Say whatever is 180 degrees from the truth... and then accept it as the truth.

Um, you kinda left out "senator" on Obama's resume, but, whatever...never let the facts etc. etc. etc.

And as I recall O quit the seat and Blag tried to sell it. When Palin quit (or was hounded out of) the governorship, she was called a quitter. Business as usual.
