Palin movie debuts to an audience of empty seats

From Salon courtesy of Digg:

The Atlantic's Conor Friedersdorf found himself one of the only viewers at a late night debut of "The Undefeated" in Orange County, California. Four other people joined him in the audience, including a brother and sister who stumbled upon the viewing when they were unable to get Harry Potter tickets and then left after 20 minutes.

This is really f'ing funny. Palin has proven herself irresistible to television newsers. She's controversial. She's attractive. Everything the media love to swarm. She's successfully created a brand the entertainment corporations just have to run with. Unfortunately for her, and for the mass media, too, nobody really gives a shit. I mean, if she can't get a full house in fucking Orange County fer chrissakes, she can't get a full house anywhere. And this isn't even about filling a theater: nobody was there. Ha! Nobody!

This is refreshing. Fools may be running the House right now, talking up a storm on the idiot box shows every evening, but when it comes to getting off your ass and taking in a movie about one of your presumed heroes, the nazis just aren't showing up.

Maybe they'll stay home come election time, too.
