The world is capitulating in Noblesville, Indiana.
To be frank, we can’t understand why the book is even selling or why people are willing to wait hours to be close to some witch called Sarah “You betcha” Palin. But this is America after all and that should tell us enough…
The facts according to Huffington Post:
Unhappy fans of Sarah Palin went rogue on the Alaska Republican during her book tour stop in Noblesville, Indiana on Thursday.
The local Borders outlet had handed out 1,000 wristbands to book purchasers; the wristbands were supposed to procure fans Palin’s signature on their hardback copies of “Going Rogue.” But several dozen people who had been promised signatures were turned away empty-handed after waiting hours in poor weather.
So fans have come up empty handed again. This is Sarah Palin after all, the woman who sells out on her ideals and her governor term for a chance to rake in bucket loads of cash. You betcha!
Continues the Huffington Post :
“We gave up our entire workday, stayed in the cold, my kids were crying,” one man was quoted saying. “They went home with my wife. She was out here in the freezing cold all day. I feel like I don’t want to support Sarah.”
Can anyone see the crocodile tears flowing down our cheeks? So what’s the mob to do now? Let’s find out?
Another woman told Indy Channel, “We bought two books from Borders to have our receipt and our wristband to get it signed tonight. My books are going back to Borders tomorrow.”
When the handshake, bikini, tough ‘I hate the media and socialism’ slogans run out, there’s always the book deal. Until that runs out too…
