You Won’t Like Them When They’re Angry
4:40 p.m. | Several hundred more people waited outside in the misty rain. They didn’t get to the Barnes & Noble Booksellers early enough to get one of the wrist bands. But they hoped that Palin might show some pity on them by saying a few words or extending her three-hour signing time.
Since there was no follow-up — did she extend her hours? — we let it slide. But it turns out that the
Golden Ticket orange wristband, “which would allow them a few moments with Palin,” doesn’t guarantee you shit:
Went to the book signing in Noblesville, IN. Waited three hours in the cold to get a wristband to reserve my spot at the book signing tonight. We were told she would sign book for the first 1000 people. Not so. The event ended promptly at 9:00pm, though there were still at least 150 people left. Wasted my day, wasted money on a babysitter, and wasted my money on this book.
Lest you think that unkind comment from Talibunny’s Facebook page is cherry-picking, the terrible elitists at Rumproast provide a video from the chaotic scene. Although they don’t roll Palin’s bus, they do chant “sign our books” and complain about “quittin’ on the job” before being crushed by the billboard-sized Smilin’ Sarah.
