Award-winning blogger Rob Port, a Wasilla, Ak. native, who runs the Say Anything blog, has posted a review of The Undefeated after seeing it at the Right Online conference. It’s a good read from an honest long-time supporter.

I had expected, frankly, Palin propaganda. And I don’t mean that derisively. After the treatment Palin has gotten at the hands of the media and the left, she deserves some propaganda. I had expected an hours-long run-down of all the ways the media/left were unfair to Palin.
What I got was a thorough, eye-opening (even for a Palin supporter) run-down of why Palin is everything the media says she isn’t. After years of Sarah Palin on the national stage, after books and bus tours and interviews, I thought I knew everything there was to know about her.
I was wrong.
The heart of the film focused on her political career in Alaska. From her first run for Mayor of Wasilla, in which she faced many of the same sexist barbs that have become hallmarks of her critics through today, to her time as an oil and gas regulator and her unlikely victory over an incumbent Republican governor. And it didn’t stop there. It highlighted the remarkable first 20 months of her term as governor, and the sea change she brought to Alaskan government.
I wonder how many of the people who suggest that Palin is a policy light-weight, who suggest that she’s some clueless naif awash in a sea of people smarter than she is, know anything at all about what she accomplished in Alaska.
If they don’t, then shame on them for not availing themselves of the facts before criticizing. If they do, then shame on them for lying.
