Nick Broomfield is Raising $30,000 on Kickstarter to Release "Sarah Palin: You Betcha!"

Nick Broomfield's Kickstarter page.

Meet Nick Broomfield, Kickstarter.

Documentarian provocateur Nick Broomfield's latest project, "Sarah Palin: You Betcha!" already has a world premiere berth at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival. However, Broomfield is already taking distribution into his own hands.

His goal is to have the film in theatrical distribution "before the potential candidates of 2012 announce their candidacy." And while many candidates have already announced their intent to run, clearly Broomfield believes he has a very short window in which to act.

So, enter Kickstarter. Broomfield is looking to raise $30,000 by September 3, five days before TIFF begins. Here's his pitch:

Pledge $50 and you get "Good will and gratitude sent from the indomitable spirit of Wasilla, Alaska;" and if you're the first person to pledge $600 or more, you'll receive "Nick's trademark, one of a kind bullhorn that he uses IN the film, autographed by Nick."

Speaking of trademarks, the start of this clip from "You Betcha" feels almost comforting in its familiarity. Here's Broomfield, sitting stony faced at an event from which he knows he will soon be evicted, with his own voiceover: "I couldn't quite believe I would finally get to ask Sarah a question."

    Run, Sarah run. Sarah Palin was so successful as a governor, she graduated early “Bitter Quitter”, she real is a “Dan Quayle” in heels. She clearly loves “dishing it out” but real can’t take it because she loves playing the victim card, poor thing. She fail as a VP candidate (her lie that her daughter was engaged was such a farce, selling celibacy, come on), her stand-up comic fiasco on the Jay Leno Show, please, her TV show canceled after declining rating, I guess her perpetual run for the White House (and taking the suckers money) is the only thing she can look forward. Didn’t Fake News make that other movie “undeveloped” or “under achiever” or something like that, right? Didn’t it break all box office records, oh yeah it did not, that Alaska dullard can‘t even finish the bus tour to nowhere. But since she is a coward she will only throw small minded rocks, poor thing. Since we already had an idiot “W” in the White House that caused our current economic debacle, America knows not to trust the GOP fools who flaunt the idiocy.
