    Thumbs up Sarah Palin fans go rogue, boo her on book tour in Indiana

    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, a local news outlet, the Indy Channel, reported.
    "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."
    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."
    The angry crowd turned on Palin as she returned to her "Going Rogue" tour bus. Video below shows people booing and shouting at the bus, and shouting "Sign our books Sarah!" as the engine revved up and Palin departed.

    I guess Palin supporters took the title 'going rogue' to heart.

    LOL.. The people booing sound like a bunch of rabid sheep... which would be a fairly accurate assessment.

    Sorry, dude, but anyone who stands in the cold all day to get a Sarah Palin autograph deserves this outcome.

    she came early and stayed late, she more than fullfilled her obligation. She could have stayed all night and she still would have got boos.

    Hilarious. She's learning that when you attract crazy they are kind of demanding.

    Actually, she didn't fulfill her obligation. She was suppose to sign copies of her book for everyone who had a wristband. She didn't do that, so she got booed by the fans who had wristbands, but didn't get a signed copy of her book.

    Then she needs to write faster and over 2,000 photos is a bit much. Sign the books and skip the pics then maybe you can get to everyone

    Well, hand out less wristbands or take less photos, but if you are enticing people to attend your book tour by saying that each and every that has a wristband will also have a signed copy of the dramedy she wrote, then make sure that all those folks get what they came for (and paid for). Anything else is called lying.... oh hell, look who I'm talking about. Well, it makes sense now.
