"The Undefeated"... Unfortunately.

A lot of people that support Sarah Palin like to argue that those that do not support her are sexist, ignorant liberals that believe nothing but what the media tells them.  I am, however, under the belief that it isn't sexism or ignorance that guides us anti-Palinists; rather, it's the strong smell of bullshit and the overwhelming sense of stupidity that radiates from the emptiness of her skull that cause us to keep our distance.  

The fact that she is a woman means nothing.  I could care less if she were androgynous, transgender, male, or even a hermaphrodite.  Sex aside, what remains a constant is her blinding lack of knowledge and her idiotic, misinformed statements that pander to the right.  Liberals don't like Palin not because she is a woman, but because it is sickeningly obvious that she has absolutely no fucking clue what she is talking about.  If you want examples, you don't have to look far.  Palin's now infamous story of Paul Revere was the laughing stock of the American History departments in schools country-wide for weeks. She claims that she has more experience running government than the incumbent president, yet her resume consists of a half term as governor, some city council work, and a "correspondent/pundit" for Fox News.  Oh, shit, someone hire that woman immediately.  She sounds like she could really fix the economy with all that pundit training.  

I knew it.  

John McCain inadvertently created a monster during the 2008 elections.  If the right wing really wants to talk sexist, maybe they should ask their former candidate just why he chose her in the first place.  I'll give you a hint: it's probably because she doesn't have a penis.  The 2008 election season saw two firsts: we would either have the first black president, or the first female vice president.  If John McCain hadn't have picked Palin to be his running mate and instead picked a man, the election would have come down to the first black president or more of the same old shit.  It was a political move and it back-fired.  

So now there is this long line of Republican candidates with one woman, one black man, and ten white guys that are practically indistinguishable from one another, and Sarah Palin has yet to announce her candidacy.  Why?  I hope it's because she doesn't plan to run.  Ever.  At this point, with a movie about her in theaters,  I would imagine that it's also because she's too big a "celebrity" to be President of the United States.  That's what she said of Barack Obama before the 2008 election.  Suddenly in 2012, Trump almost jumped into the mix and that seemed more than acceptable to Palin and the right wing, even though he has an entire brand of random shit named after him, and his own television show.  

Naturally, when I heard about Sarah Palin's movie/documentary, I laughed.  Actually, I'm still laughing.  It's absolutely hysterical.  While her supporters are calling it the best movie ever, the famous movie review sites known as Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB beg to differ.  

As of the writing of this post, Rotten Tomatoes gives the "film" a big fat 0%.  

Let's hear what some critics and reviewers have to say, shall we?

Roger Moore of the Orlando Sentinel says, "'The Undefeated' plays like an infomercial.  And as such, it's an infomercial of almost comical omissions."

Eric Kohn of IndieWIRE writes, "The Undefeated flatlines after an hour of empty back-patting and no dramatic edge. Bannon actively avoids any of Palin's setbacks, downplaying the entire 2008 presidential campaign to a few minutes of screen time."

Glen, a random moviegoer says that, "The best thing about this movie is the salt on the popcorn."

Headly66 from NJ writes, "This opened to almost empty houses and I can see why. Nothing in this film is accurate in the least, filled with lies and misinformation of the forgettable political career of a severely despised, vengeful, spiteful, petty, and unintelligent woman."

I think one of the most pathetic things about Palin's supporters is that they flooded IMDB with positive reviews and high ratings, and the movie still gets a 1.5.  Worse still, most of the written reviews are generic and seem copy/pasted from a MadLibs book. "Sarah Palin is (positive adj.)!  Everyone should see this movie as it shows this (positive adj.) former governor as one (tough/strong) patriotic candidate!"

During interviews, Palin turns her thoughts to the Mad Libs
booklet inside her head for answers to tough "gotcha" questions.

Worst of all, I have to wonder what is going on in this country when perfectly intelligent, sophisticated women are ignored because of women like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann (the former woman, by the way, chose her profession because that's what her husband wanted her to be, and she obeys her husband like the Good Book says).  There are so many other women in the world - hundreds of millions, in fact! - that would be more suitable for the right wing to latch on to.  But no.  Instead, they chose Palin and Bachmann.  Two humans that are so fucking stupid, they make George Bush look like a rocket scientist.  

For the sake of all the women I personally know and love, I refuse to even consider voting for either of these two ladies, Bachmann in particular.  Any human that believes that one human is subservient to another, be it in love or in hate, should not be allowed to represent this country, let alone their state.
