Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Blond Ambition, a biopic about Madonna‘s early years, has been picked up by Universal.

But the filmmakers did not return Pence’s lofty compliment in kind. In an email to MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki, Hoosiers director David Anspaugh and writer Angelo Pizzo responded to Pence’s praise with a political statement.
