When last Sarah Palin deigned to visit the lower 48 she had resigned from her bus tour halfway through. Which was only fitting. But the excuse we heard was jury duty, I guess she got out of it for cause — a profound lack of understanding of the law (or jury duty) — because she’s back just two days later.

And even worse for me, she’s near.

Sarah Palin’s going to Iowa.

The production and publicity firms behind the new documentary about Palin released a statement today confirming the former Alaska governor and her husband will attend the Tuesday premiere of “The Undefeated” in Pella, Iowa.

The film will be shown at the Pella Opera House at 5 p.m. central time and a “traditional Iowa cookout” will follow.

It is an amusing title for the person on the losing end of the last Presidential election where she was quite “defeated”, especially since right now she’d lose badly in Iowa to the “Uncommitted” Michele Bachmann.



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
