There is a fight brewing about an Ebay sale after a supporter of Sarah Palin bought an effigy of her by mistake, thinking that it was just another item to add to his Sarah Palin collection. It turned out to be the controversial effigy of Chad Morrisette, a professional window dresser, who hung it in protest. The Palin supporter is now refusing to pay the $2,200.
Morrisette was pressured to take down the effigy after national criticism and coverage.
The Palin supporter snapped up the item. It is hard to see how the Palin supporter would have thought that an effigy was a positive Palin item. Morrisette included the following statement in the auction page: “PLEASE NOTE: YOU ARE BIDDING ON THE FAMOUS SARAH PALIN HALLOWEEN DISPLAY MANNEQUIN. AS SEEN ON THE TODAY SHOW, INSIDE EDITION, THE VIEW, FOX NEWS, KEITH OLBERMAN, EVERY MAJOR NEWS NETWORK, AND READ ABOUT IN EVERY NEWSPAPER WORLDWIDE.” This certainly does not speak well for the intellectual prowess of the Palin fan base.
What is most disturbing is that there are people who have Palin collections, the new pop star of the right wing.
