    Birtherpalooza Canceled Over Low Ticket Sales | TPMMuckraker

    Not even the promise of crooner Pat Boone singing oldies from a spinning stage could save what was intended to be the premier birther event of the year later this month in Arizona.

    Organizers of the gala, which would have featured Boone alongside Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and some of the nation’s other prominent conspiracy theorists, broke the news online Friday that it was canceled “due to inadequate ticket sales.”

    The Sept. 22 event was meant to bring together people from throughout the nation who believe Barack Obama’s birth certificate is fake and therefore he is ineligible to be president. Organizers planned to use it to call on Congress to take up Arpaio’s yearlong investigation into the documents.

    The announcement was disappointing to the few people who did plan to attend, as evidenced by a handful of web postings about the cancellation. It didn’t take long for true believers to spin elaborate conspiracy theories about why the event was called off.

    When bashing gay rights by buying a chicken sandwich is more popular than claiming our President is not legitimate, nor American...I weep that this once great nation is losing its ignorance. Especially in such a tolerant state as Arizona.

    Then I think about how we still hate women, and minorities, and people who aren't christians (or in some small cases, Mormons) and I feel a bit better.

    "DNC Convention" is redundant.. sad that they could not sell out enough $10.00 tickets to run this scam.

    ONe alleged reason for cancelling, despite the pyss poor ticket sales, could be found on the Facebook page of Linda Bentley, an Arizona tea party activist promoted the event. She wrote on her page that it had been doomed because Arpaio was unwilling to take his probe even further and investigate the president for murder.

    I think it's hilarious both that the AP and Obama's literary agent said he was Kenyan-born but we didn't get that info until 3 years after he was elected.

    $10.00 is a steep price to pay to hop on the crazy train...
