HUGE CROWD LINES UP TO SEE SARAH PALIN, GET BOOKS SIGNED
AT Least Six States Represented in the Crowd
–And at least one hockey mom…
Sarah Palin Going Rogue book tour
Washington PA, November 21, 2009
DBKP Pictures from the tour stop -1
Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue” book tour came to Washington, PA and folks from at least six states were there to greet her. DBKP was there too and got some pictures–five pages of them, to be exact.
We took more, but we promised some folks in the crowd that we’d have these up by Saturday night. Just from our own observations, it seemed like slightly more women were present than men, which would seem to contradict those who say that Sarah Palin’s main appeal is sexual.
But we didn’t take a census. Readers can scan the photos on the following pages and see if they come to a different conclusion as to the gender breakdown. The people we talked to seemed to be having a good time–even the ones who’d been waiting in line for 17 hours.
No cameras were allowed inside the book signing and it was doubtful this writer would have gotten in–too busy taking pictures and getting shooed away from the Palin tour bus when it arrived. But even the police doing the shoo-ing were nice enough–as was everyone we came in contact with in the crowd.
Here’s five pages of pictures from the event before they took it in-doors.

Washington PA welcomes Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue” book tour to its stop at the local Sam’s Club.
The crowd continued to grow. The local police said that the first arrivals began showing up on Friday at around 4 pm. One officer said that the “better part of our force” was at the event for traffic control. Not much crowd control was needed.
The day was cool, clear and sunny–a perfect day for standing in line and talking to like-minded people from at least six states. We spoke with people in the crowd from PA, OH, WV, VA, MD, and SC.
The crowd would no doubt have been surprised that they are “dangerous to America“–the words from the DNC (and formerly Obama’s) Organizing for America.
President Obama’s political operation took a shot at Sarah Palin today, accusing her of lying on her media blitz.
“It’s dangerous,” Organizing for America Director Mitch Stewart said of Palin’s book tour. …
The crowd continues to grow. It’s around 9 o’clock and the arrival of Sarah Palin is still about 2 hours away. One police officer remarked, “Some of these people are crazy. They think they are going to show up now [at 10 am] and get a parking spot. That’s just crazy.”
These women were not shy on the subject of sitting down and not rocking the boat. Their shirts said it all.
The backs of these ladies’ shirts are just as emphatic.
NOTE: The Thomas Jefferson quote on the back of their shirts read, “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent”.
