The Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated” plunged 63 percent in its second weekend and I assume it will be expanding to few more markets, if any. It can now be officially labeled a flop.
I wanted this film to be good. It was not. It goes into the Hall of Ignominy on Rotten Tomatoes, joining the [...]
My harsh critique of the Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated” was picked up by liberal sites like Gawker, Andrew Sullivan’s blog and Dave Weigel of Slate, who strikes me as kinda sorta a liberal or at least not a real conservative. (Weigel is a great guy, by the way, with immense knowledge of DC procedure.) [...]
Don’t laugh, says Matthew Continetti: It could happen. I don’t think voters will forgive her for walking away from Alaska. Continetti’s perfectly-timed book on Palin comes out next week. I plan to read Palin’s book and write a review as soon as I can.
Olive Garden kinda sorta denies they’re pulling ads from David Letterman because of the Sarah Palin controversy. But won’t say whether, in fact, we will be seeing Olive Garden spots on Letterman. And the original Politico story looks pretty solid. Question: Will Letterman, that scourge of the mighty, tribune of the truth, use this opportunity [...]
“How to shoot a moose between the antlers–PLUS! cooking with whale blubber! Next ‘Sarah!’” Is Sarah Palin the next media superstar, or will she stay in government? The Hollywood Reporter mulls her options.
Sarah Palin, who got big laughs during her RNC speech, wasn’t funny on “Saturday Night Live.” Why? Because they didn’t give her anything funny to do. They made her stand there like a rhododendron while Alec Baldwin squinted at the cue cards. Baldwin is normally funny on the show. And he can, presumably, memorize a [...]
So says an expert about that suspicious-looking transcript floating around the Internets.
If this whole veep thing doesn’t work out, she’ll be fine. (H/t: Conservative Grapevine.) Elsewhere, a blogger points out that news photographers love to take pictures of Palin rallies from behind the candidate’s legs. Were a liberal woman treated this way, it would of course be denounced as reductionist and sexist to define a candidate [...]
Clint Eastwood came into town last week for a press conference to introduce his new Angelina Jolie-starring period drama “Changeling”–during which he described himself as “a libertarian” and said essentially that he was disgusted with both political parties. Interesting. More on that later.
I just noticed Bay State novelist Tom Perrotta (”Election,” “Little Children,” and see my review of “The Abstinence Teacher“) has an essay up on today’s sexiest Puritan: Sarah Palin. Love the bit about “Christian nymphos.”« Previous Entries
