Nick Broomfield's quest for the real Sarah Palin.

This involves battling the icy snows of Alaska in mid winter, the school friends, family, and Republican colleagues that in previous days gave their heart, soul and belief, to the charismatic, charming, intoxicating ex hockey mum.

But it's not all plain sailing. People are frightened to talk, Wasilla makes Twin Peaks look like a walk in the park. It's a devout evangelical community - 76 churches with a population of only 6 thousand, and the Crystal meth capitol of Alaska.

Who are the flying monkeys, the enemies, the friends, and most importantly - are you with her or against her? Join the quest and for Christ's sake buy some thermals!

Sarah Palin, in her cute leather outfits and pointy shoes, the stuff of evangelical and other fantasies, represents a gigantic shift not only within the new emerging Republican Party, but our whole political landscape.

The enlightenment notion of rational debate on practical issues to find the best solution in a democracy is being replaced with a romantic idealism on the right that has nothing to do with logic or fact. Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, with the help of Rupert Murdoch, Fox TV, and the Koch brothers, are leading this change.
