Jezebel has posted a popular Youtube video of some interviews with fans lined up for a Sarah Palin book signing in Columbus, Ohio.
For the informed citizen, Palin’s fans are hard to listen to. Here’s a typical exchange:
FAN: (presumably in response to “what does Palin mean to you?”) Fairness, realness.
INTERVIEWER: Any policies, I guess, specifically, of hers…?
FAN: I can’t think of the policies right off the bat.
Okay, so the temptation – and probably, the desired effect by the filmmaker – is to dismiss Palin’s fans as idiots. But more to the point, we think, is that they aren’t interested in specific policy solutions. They want justice. This large mass of (white) Americans feels strong, unfocused resentment towards the government. Could huge handouts to Wall Street and auto manufacturers have anything to do with it?
