Palin Wins The Future (In The Sense of Failing, Exciting Contempt, and then Claiming Additional Martyrdom Points)
A very funny piece in the Atlantic about Sarah Palin’s new feature documentary, The Undefeated, which opened to less than massive crowds. Reporter Conor Friedersdorf notes that in Orange County — where both Reagan and Bush Sr. kicked off their Presidential campaigns — he was alone in the theater except for a lone couple looking to grope one another in an out of the way place: “Shortly before the end of the film, a young couple entered, walked to the back row, started making out, then interrupted their session and left (spoiler alert) as Andrew Breitbart, who made one of several guest appearances, started talking about eunuchs. Then I was alone again, working.” Oscar alert, people. Actually, set wristwatches: how long before Sarah Pac begins touting the stories about empty theaters as evidence of continued media pile-on?
