Sarah Palin was in Pella, Iowa on Tuesday, checking out the premiere of the new documentary about her, The Undefeated. The film is more or less a hagiography, but it opens with an anti-Palin montage of various celebrities verbally spearing Sarah Barracuda, with David Letterman calling Palin "slutty," Bill Maher making his "dumb twat" comment, Madonna yelling "Sarah fucking Palin" at a concert, and Matt Damon (a Team America: World Peace casualty himself) likening Bristol's mom to a "really bad Disney movie."
Palin was predictably not amused by these utterings of godless Hollywood, and asked The Hollywood Reporter,
"What would make a celebrity like you saw on screen, so hate someone that they'd seek their destruction, their death, the death of their children? What would make someone be so full of hate and, I guess, a sense of being threatened that they would want to see that person destroyed?"
Maybe if Palin took five minutes away from being in front of a camera she could sit down and figure out why such a publicity-starved gubernatorial drop-out would provoke such a reaction. Perhaps she and Todd could mush away from the madding crowd for a two-week dogsledding trip in the middle of Alaska. Like, way out there.
