The line began forming before sunrise in single-digit temperatures at a Costco store in Anchorage for Gov. Palin's book signing Saturday :
Christmas music played as Palin and former "First Dude" Todd sat at a decorated table between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. signing copies of Palin's bestselling "America By Heart." The Palins chatted with book-buyers as the line passed. News photographers and gawkers outside the line angled to snap photos of the Palins.The event was open only open to Costco members. A photo gallery is here.
Alaska Pride reports that a couple of the usual suspects were among the crowd:
No significant disturbances broke out, although security ejected at least two people. One was a woman wearing a "Worst Governor Ever" shirt, and the other was a known anti-Palin blogger spotted by Todd Palin. Alaska Dispatch confirmed the blogger to be Jesse Lee Griffin, who edits The Immoral Minority. Griffin posted about the encounter, and said things were going well until he told Todd his name. Then Todd's face darkened, he whispered something in Sarah's ear, and Sarah allegedly told Griffin "Oh, you are the one who is trying to destroy my children!" Griffin was then escorted out of the place, sans autograph.Some fools don't even have enough common sense not to try to mess with a Mama Grizzly's cubs...
