Sarah Palin’s allies and devotees portray hers as a tale of triumph over corruption and persecution by the political left and right in a documentary to premiere later this month in Iowa.

“The Undefeated,” a feature-length film from director Stephen K. Bannon, chronicles the former Alaska governor’s rise, fall and re-emergence as Palin stokes speculation that she might enter the 2012 presidential race.

After its debut in the home of the nation’s first presidential nominating caucuses, distributors plan rollouts in New Hampshire and South Carolina, two other early-voting states.
The film challenges elected Republicans including House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, pictured as Breitbart speaks of “eunuchs who have run as men but aren’t men” for allowing Palin to be criticized.

“To hell with the establishment, because the establishment has put us in this position in the first place,” Breitbart says near the end of the film. “America now has an alternative, and Sarah Palin is that alternative.”

Palin’s aides didn’t respond to a request for comment on the film, though she gave it two thumbs up in a May 31 interview with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News, which employs the former governor as a commentator.

“It blew me away,” Palin told Van Susteren.
