LOPEZ: Do you see the Tea Party as the anti-Republican party? An Undefeated viewer might think so. But can they live together? Don’t they need one another electorally?
BANNON: The Tea Party movement is a grassroots-conservative populist revolt. And I think, as Mark Levin says in the film, it is in a direct lineage to the Reagan Revolution. I think that ultimately the Tea Party movement will bring about a dramatic restructuring of power back to the states that will become the central organizing principle of a new Republican party.
Be honest. “Undefeated.” The title itself is meant to keep MSNBC in operation for months if not years to come.
BANNON: Like Generation Zero, The Undefeated’s title has several meanings. It reflects not simply Governor Palin the person, but also the values that Sarah Palin manifests — those values of working-class America, middle-class America, those values that build our communities, run our civic organizations, fight our wars. Those values are and will remain undefeated.
