Phoenix, AZ – You can only beat a dead horse so long until it decomposes and you are left swatting at dirt. That was the lesson Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio learned this week after being forced to call off his ‘birther fest’ celebration because of extremely poor ticket sales.
The event, which was organized by the Greater Phoenix Tea Party Patriots, was schedule for September 22 and would have also featured Pat Boone. Also scheduled to speak at the event was Terry Lakin, a doctor who refused to go to Afghanistan to save soldiers’ lives.
The birther event was scheduled to take place at the 2,650-seat Celebrity Theater in Phoenix.
Tickets to the even were cheap at $10 in advance and $25 if someone wanted to ‘meet and greet’ with Sheriff Joe.
Dubbed “Birtherpalooza” by some media outlets, the cancellation has already spawned the type of ignorant inbred opinions we have come to expect from Sheriff Joe’s biggest supporters and President Obama’s biggest conspiracy nuts. For example, on the event’s Facebook page, one homophobic racist wrote that the event was stopped because Sheriff Joe is:
“TOO DUMB to SEE the MURDERS Barack Obama had his Security Adviser John Brennan commit on Obama’s Gay Lovers in Chicago.”
That must be it; there could be no other reason for cancelling an event like perhaps the fact that people in the general public had no interest in attending an event in which the EXACT same topic would be beaten with a stick for the one millionth time in four short years.
