Chicagoans Worried People Will Read Governor Palin’s Books
This is telling, though not particularly surprising. In June, at a “literature festival” in Chicago, 36% of those who participated in a non-scientific poll voted to ban Governor Palin’s books in the Windy City. Via Rebel Pundit at Big Government:
In June we attended the Printer’s Row Literature Festival in Chicago. City blocks were closed off for tents and booths full of all types of literature. We presented a board with a selection of well known book covers and asked visitors of the event if they could choose to ban any of the books on the board, which if any, they would in fact ban. They were allowed to choose any three of the eleven choices.
The authors of the books we offered to ban were Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Andrew Breitbart, Ayn Rand, Michael Savage, Bill Clinton, Michael Moore, Karl Marx, Adolf Hitler and Barack Obama. While there were in fact less than two handfuls of individuals who did tell us they don’t think any books should be banned, unfortunately there were a shocking amount of guests at this book fair who were quite open to the idea, and in fact lined up quite excited for the opportunity to voice their opinion.
Participants overwhelming chose Sarah Palin who received 53 votes putting her at 36% overall, Glenn Beck at 23% and Ann Coulter at 22%.
Read the rest here. So there you have it. In Chicago, that bastion of liberal thought and enlightenment from whence our most-sophisticated President came, far more residents would prefer to ban books by Governor Palin than Adolph Hitler. I guess they must really fear that seditious, free market blasphemy she advocates. Far more so, apparently, than the benign wonders of an all-powerful government as promulgated in Mein Kampf.
