Palin to attend next week's documentary premiere in Iowa

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is headed back into the political spotlight. The only question is for how long.

Palin, who may or may not run for president, will attend on Tuesday the premiere of a glowing pro-Palin documentary in Iowa, which holds the first presidential nominating contest.

The documentary, “The Undefeated,” chronicles her accomplishments as Alaska governor, highlights the attacks she received from Hollywood and the media when she was the GOP’s vice-presidential nominee in 2008 and throws some punches at the Republican Party’s establishment, accusing GOP leaders of not defending her.

Although Palin played no personal role in producing the documentary, she has screened the film (and so have numerous members of the political press corps).

Palin’s appearance in Iowa could potentially step on Michele Bachmann’s official presidential announcement in the Hawkeye State, which takes place on Monday.

Palin was accused of stepping on Mitt Romney’s official presidential announcement in New Hampshire earlier this month, when her East Coast bus tour arrived in the Granite State the same day as Romney’s announcement.
