As if the holiday shopping extravaganzas weren’t enough. There were people who actually spent the night in the Brookwood Mall parking deck over the weekend in hopes of getting a bracelet that would allow them to whiz by Sarah Palin as she signs books at light speed today.
Good luck with that. Books-a-Million handed out 1,000 bracelets yesterday. If she spent 30 seconds personally signing each book, it would take her more than eight hours to finish — and that’s without a break to stretch or pee. I just don’t see it happening. And it’s not like Books-a-Million has a large gallery to accommodate the people who just want to be in the same room with her.
I predict quite a few people will be palmed off with a pre-signed edition (if that) and at most a fleeting glimpse of their heroine through the mall windows. And if there are any repercussions, it will all be someone else’s fault.
