With the title of his movie about Sarah Palin, "The Undefeated," Stephen Bannon starts off with his string of outrageous false claims about Palin.   Being undefeated is all-inclusive, it admits to no exception, no defeat.   To be undefeated, Palin would have won the 2008 election for vice president.  

The movie title implies that Palin actually won that election, and is currently Vice President of the United States.

Bannon said of Palin that she is a woman of the highest political accomplishment.   That would be the presidency.   This implies that Palin is the current President of the United States.

Bannon says that Palin is in the top 3 of accomplished governors of the 20th century.   Resigning halfway through your term is viewed by Republicans as an accomplishment, shared by 2 other un-named governors.

Erin Haust of the Minneapolis Conservative Examiner says that the film documents clearly the accomplishments of Palin's political career and outlines her success in defeating the Republican establishment.

Haust doesn't bother to mention Palin's failure to defeat the Democratic establishment in the 2008 election.   Haust refers to what he calls her incredible victories, blind to the fact that her last two attempts to hold political office were miserable failures.

Haust says that she may not currently hold public office, but, followed by a string of praising blather.   Is there some doubt about that?   Palin may, may not hold public office?

"May not" implies doubt about whether she does not hold public office.   We can clear that up right quick for you Mr. Haust.   She does not.

Are these attempts to re-write Palin's political history sowing seeds for the Republican lunatic fringe?   They can look on this and see the unconditional claim that Palin was undefeated.   You can hear them now:   Hey, look here, it says that Palin was undefeated, so she must have won the 2008 election for Vice President.   See there, the Democrats stole another election.

Wait for it.
