Sarah Palin Was Here

And I missed her:
A smiling Sarah Palin, carrying her pajama-clad son, Trig, on her hip, stepped off her tour bus Thursday night to greet a cheering crowd of more than a thousand fans who braved the cold and stood in line for hours in hopes of getting her autograph.

The former vice presidential hopeful and governor of Alaska stepped over to a line of supporters and shook a few hands before being escorted inside the bookstore to begin signing copies of her memoir, "Going Rogue.”

Some of the first in line were in and out of the signing area within minutes. Several exited cheering, holding their books aloft to show the crowd where Palin had signed.

"She’s the genuine article,” said Michael Barton of Edmond, who waited 26 hours in line with his mother, Rosa, for the chance to meet Palin.

So why'd I miss my chance to witness history? See above. Specifically, the parts about it being cold. And waiting 26 hours.

Looks like a good, enthusiastic crowd though.

  1. I know I have said this before, but I will say it again and again and again:

    I hope that Sarah Palin never goes away. No woman since Eleanor Roosevelt has done more for progressive politics in this country than she. Don'cha just love her? I sure do!
