GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - College students ditched class, employees skipped work and some huddled in the cold overnight just to make sure they get an orange wristband Wednesday that would let them meet Sarah Palin.
Thousands gathered outside a Barnes & Noble and chanted "Palin! Palin! Palin!" for the kickoff of the former Republican vice presidential candidate's "Going Rogue" book tour, which has taken on the feel of a political pep rally.
"She's a person of faith, she has a family, she has gone through a lot of the trials and tribulations we have. I'd vote for her in a heartbeat," said Lana Smith, a dispatcher at a bus company who took the day off work and had been waiting in line since 5:30 a.m.
"Someday I hope her name is up in lights and I'll have had the privilege of meeting her," Smith said.

I got my copy today
AP wrote this? Man that must have hurt.
I love this for the reason that it will cause liberals, the DBM and RINOs to become completely unhinged and say totally outrageous things. The entertainment value is top notch.
Me too. And if she does a signing in SoCal that I can get to, I’m getting another one.
Notice how they conveniently leave out a number count...I bet she drew a crowd of 5000!
Is it true that no pictures are allowed?
I think she was sending a message to Juan by opening in Michigan.
Are the commies at google trying to manipulate the news?
I was surprised they even used the word thousands. The updated version of this article reports the crowd size as hundreds.
The "thousands" story in this thread was released yesterday evening. By this morning the story had been slightly edited to downplay the crowd size and the headline had been changed.
Minimal crowds... nothing to see here....
Nice video. She is one of a kind.
