The anger at Sarah Palin for leaving fans in the lurch at an Indiana book signing sure seems genuine, but I'll repeat what I said to Aimai in comments:

Don't forget the nature of deep fandom. How many big fans of Michael Jackson truly believe he molested children? Only the ones who were actually molested and their immediate friends and families, as far as I can tell. Everyone else just explained away the sleepovers and the cuddling in bed and the bedroom with the special lock system on the door. That's what the Palinites who weren't at this signing will do -- explain it away in their own heads. It must be someone else's fault! Not Sarah's! (And they'll say that even if fellow Palinites are saying just the opposite.)
