Sarah Palin Documentary: The Moose Hunter (VIDEO)

I found this video on Youtube last night. it had been uploaded by the a person named Indigo Gilmore.

After doing a little research, I found out that the documentary had been made and aired in 2008 under the title, "The Palin Circus".

I found the short documentary well done, interesting, and a little tongue-in-cheek. It represented a 50/50, positive/negative view of Palin by the locals in the Wasila area.

Here is the description of the video from a site called Journey Man Pictures:
Who is Sarah Palin and what does she stand for? To find out, this report goes back to her hometown of Wasilla. We mix with locals in order to understand what makes her tick.
As we quickly see, her supporters are very keen to demonstrate their enthusiasm. From local bars to campaign meetings, housewives to moose-hunters, Sarah’s people repeat that ‘she’s number one.’ Scratching under the surface however, another less palatable side of the Governor comes to light.
 To read the full write-up go HERE.

The bottom line is that I had never viewed this video and I'm assuming many of you hadn't viewed it either:

Calling a movie about Sarah Palin the “Undefeated” is like calling a movie about Texas, “Oklahoma.” She was defeated in the race for Lieutenant Governor of Alaska in 2002. She lost her bid to be appointed by Murkowski to the Senate. She helped John McCain loose the race for the Presidency in 2008.

To call the “Undeafeated” a “documentary” is like calling Star Wars a ocumentary because we do have space ships.

“Documentary” is defined as something based on documents, or something presenting facts objectively without editorializing or inserting fictional matters. In the case of a film it is supposed to present political, social, or historical subject matter in a factual, and informative manner. “The Undefeated,” an unapologetically partisan “documentary,” is a blatant commercial for Palin for President. The film portrays her as the original Tea Party inspiration. It will make its premiere in Iowa in a couple of weeks. However it has already been shown at the national convention of conservative bloggers at the Right Online convention.

The film has been reported to be a “documentary,” portraying mainstream Republican leaders as villains, and Sarah Palin as an inspirational heroine for the Tea Party. Conservative bloggers gave the film an enthusiastic reception at the film’s first public screening on Friday night. Republican leaders are characterized as “toothless bystanders” watching Palin being attacked during her vice-presidential run. Speakers at the conference included Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Andrew Breitbart, Michelle Malkin, and Tim Pawlenty.

This “documentary” noticeably omits any reference to “bridge to nowhere” or Troopergate. While I haven’t seen the film, I could assume if there was no mention of Troopergate and the bridge to nowhere, there is also no mention of:

1. The road to nowhere

2. The Katie Couric Interviews

3. Palin’s account of Paul Revere’s ride

4. Palin’s suggestion that we build dikes to solve the Gulf Oil Spill

5. Palin’s mistake about the state in which Ronald Reagan went to college

6. Palin’s reference to our “North Korean allies”

7. Pailin’s reference to her favorite founding father as “all of them” and Glenn Beck’s response of “bull crap

8. The increase in debt she left for Wasilla when she left as mayor

9. The increase in debt she left for Alaska when she resigned

10. Her use of a law she passed while Governor, to tax the people of Alaska 1.2 MillionDollars for the making of Sarah Palin’s Alaska

11. Her lies about Death Panels

12. Her lies about the findings in Troopergate

13. Her lies about being a hunter

14. The millions of dollars she has made characterizing herself as a common person

15. Writing on her hand while criticizing President Obama for using a teleprompter

17. Her suggestion that family should be “off limits” while featuring each of her kids and grandchild on her national television show, watching Bristol on Dancing with the Stars, wishing Trig a “happy birthday” on twitter, and including family on her motorcycle appearance and bus tour.

It appears, from the reviews, that the only thing accurate about the film is Sarah Palin’s disdain for moderate Republicans. Previously I had a sick feeling every time I heard about this film. Perhaps I should be laughing as Sarah Palin causes the decline of the very political party that lauded her as the savior of American values. Perhaps in 2013 there will be a real documentary 5 part series. The producers will likely be unable to use the Sarah Palin name in the title, since it appears her trademark application is about to be approved . Maybe they’ll just call it “The Defeated Undefeated Half Term Ex-Empress.”

Anonymous 1:18, While I am certainly no Palin supporter, much of the criticism in your comment is really silly. Just to name a couple, the Paul Revere incident not being in the documentary. I only happened a few weeks ago. The movie was filmed quite a while ago. Palin's mistake referring to North Korea as allies was clearly just a slip of the tongue, not because she really thinks North Korea is our ally.

Your criticism carries no weight with me because it is biased.

I like Sarah Palin. I don't know her personally, so my feelings are based solely on how I have witnessed her in the media.

I do not support her for president. Some of my reasons are things she is responsible for, and some are things she has no control over.

If you complain that Palin's documentary is biased, you should first look at your own comments. There is clearly plenty of bias there too, so you are hardly one to talk.

I think she shouldve came up with another name for the movie other than undefeated

Anon comment is no more biased than the Palin propaganda movie. I expect the movie will be an epic failure.
