Bannon, a former naval officer and ex-Goldman Sachs banker, sees his documentary as the first step in Palins effort to rebuild her image in the eyes of voters who may have soured on her, yet might reconsider if old caricatures begin to fade. The film will also appeal to staunch Palin supporters who have long celebrated her biting rhetoric and conservative populism yet know little about her record in Alaska and have perhaps written her off as presidential material.
“This film is a call to action for a campaign like 1976: Reagan vs. the establishment,” Bannon told RealClearPolitics. “Lets have a good old-fashioned brouhaha.”
Note the Reagan reference.
This is very interesting, and right in line with the sort of advice I gave Palin in my “Open Letter” after the 2008 election. Sounds like she wants to run.
