Sarah Palin spent another day greeting supporters and signing "Good Tidings and Great Joy" in Wausau, WI. Perhaps the most interesting story of the day is that Walmart had 700 books on hand and it's being reported that the store sold out. In fact, Breitbart has confirmed that Sam's Club as well as Barnes and Noble sold their complete inventory too! Special note: Gov. Palin also shared this article on her Facebook page.
From Breitbart's Kevin Scholla:
When former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin went to Wausau, Wisconsin on Thursday, the whole city sold out of her new book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas. Palin held a book signing at the local Walmart, where a line snaked around the gigantic store (see video below) for the sold out book. Breitbart News has confirmed the town's Sam's Club and Barnes & Noble also sold out all their copies of her new book as well yesterday.
At Walmart, Palin greeted a multitude of well-wishers and signed book after book. Just like her Bethlehem, PA stop, she stayed late because of an abundance of supporters. She may have stayed later if not for one very relevant detail. According to a Walmart official, the store ran out of books.
Walmart wasn't alone. The entire town of Wausau was cleaned out. A Harper Collins source told Breitbart News that along with Walmart, Wausau's Sam's Club and Barnes & Noble had also sold all of their copies. The stores have confirmed that all their books were sold. More
Gov. Palin posted an album of pictures 13 pictures from the Wausau signing to her Facebook page. You'll immediately notice how engaged she is with her supporters. You'll also notice that Palin rises to greet members of our nation's military and its veterans. (See above photo.)
The Wisconsin Rapids Tribune published the following article and provided a short video:
RIB MOUNTAIN — Carrie Kolbeck traveled all the to way to Fairbanks, Alaska, four years ago just to get a chance to hear her political hero, Sarah Palin, speak.
So when the Wausau woman heard the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate was coming to town while on a book tour, Kolbeck immediately made plans for a second meeting.“She just believes in standing up for religious freedom, and that is a big deal to us,” said Kolbeck, 37. “I’m glad for her strength and courage. She’s a very brave woman.”

Gov. Palin also shared her own video (complete with cheery Christmas music) of the many people that were waiting in a line that seemed to snake through every department of Wal-Mart. The message that accompanied the video is as follows:
Thank you, Wausau! It was great to visit with so many patriots yesterday. Thank you for letting me wish you a Merry Christmas!

The Wisconsin Free published this article on Palin's book tour with an interesting quote.
One observer noted, "877 people signed up for Obamacare in the first 6 weeks. Almost as many showed up to see Sarah Palin as signed up for Obamacare."
Day 4 will take Palin to Ft. Campbell, KY and Ft. Benning, GA. The book tour schedule is available here.
