Can 'The Undefeated' Take Manhattan for Sarah Palin?

What do New Agenda feminists and Team Sarah members have in common? Tickets to the screenings.
With the exceptions of a few left wing journalists, Stephen Bannon's new full-length documentary about Sarah Palin has so far been pre-screened primarily to audiences which are predisposed to give her a break, i.e., conservatives. But Wednesday, New York City, which is not exactly known as Palin country, will present “The Undefeated” with its toughest test yet.

There will be three screenings of the film in midtown Manhattan tomorrow at 1-3 p.m., 3:30-5:30 p.m. and 8-10 p.m, All at Magno Studio at 729 7th Avenue on the second floor. Bannon calls “new agenda women” one of the demographics he has targeted for changing minds about Gov. Palin. If the movie can persuade feminists to take a second look at our Sarah, then convincing political independents to reconsider the first woman to be the Republican Party's vice presidential candidate should be very doable.

Feminist website The New Agenda reports that it has tickets to the screenings which it is making available exclusively to people on the TNA mailing list. Feminists of a more conservative persuasion are likely to meet their more liberal counterparts at the screenings, as Team Sarah has reserved a larger screening room for the 8:00 p.m. showing of “The Undefeated.” According to Team Sarah, members can still get tickets by emailing teamsarahhq@gmail.com. the organization is encouraging its members who already have confirmed seating for the 8:00 p.m. screening, toe consider adding another ticket and to “bring along a Palin fence-sitter.” Limited seating is also available for the 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. screenings, according to the Team Sarah e-mail.
