Sarah Palin may win the most votes ... at the Razzies

Sarah palinSarah Palin might not win election to the presidency, but she could reap a Razzie Award for her documentary "The Undefeated," which opens in select movie theaters on Friday.

"She's the political equivalent of what the Razzies are all about and she's hysterically funny if you don't stop and think, 'Oh, my God, she could've been vice president!'" gasps Razzie president and founder John Wilson. "Sarah Palin exhibits ineptitude and an indefensible grasping after other people's ideas, calling them her own. Just like Hollywood filmmakers who can't make an original movie. She wants you to put on rose-colored glasses instead of 3-D glasses, but there is still a surcharge you should not pay."

If Palin makes it into the Razzie running for worst female performance of the year, she'll join a select number of famous people who've been nominated for portraying themselves, like Madonna ("Truth or Dare") -- or  who've won, like the Jonas Brothers ("The 3-D Concert Experience"). Ex-President George W. Bush and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld won Razzies for appearing in Michael Moore's documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11."

"I don't know why Sarah Palin called her movie 'The Undefeated,'" Wilson says. "She lost the vice presidency, she quit the governorship of Alaska and she cut her bus tour short. The title makes no sense."

Wilson points out that "The Undefeated" is the same title as a John Wayne Western that came out in 1969.  "Just think what Michele Bachmann might do if she makes a movie -- name it after John Wayne Gacy," he adds, referring to her recent confusion of the two names. "She'll call it 'Psycho.'"


Sarah Palin is definitely a candidate ... for an Emmy

Will 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' shine at the Razzies?
