Plano Bookstore Ready for Palin Mania
NBCDFW.com ^ | Dec 4, 2009 | ELLEN GOLDBERG

Posted on 12/04/2009 9:14:10 AM PST by An American!

A Plano bookstore will be up all night preparing for a visit from former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Palin will sign copies of her new book, "Going Rogue," at Legacy Books on Friday morning. Despite the frigid temperatures, Palin fans are expected to line up hours before. “They will probably be here before dawn,” said Kyle Hall, a Legacy Books spokesman.

But only ticketed customers will get inside the store. “We’ve had people saying, 'What time should we be there? I can’t wait to buy the book,'" Hall said. "And we’ve had to break the news that we sold out two days after we announced it."

I would LOVE to know how many people are at the Obama speech in Allentown Pennsylvania. It is my hometown and we are a Republican area (Mayor and House member are Republican). This would be freaking great to compare his numbers with Sarah’s.

Sarah is hot, beautiful, smart, intelligent and could whip the diapers off of any libturd demoRAT socialist, including the marxist usurper pig, 0bozo!!! I hope Sarah continues to build up momentum for 2012 run. We need this solid Sarah in the WH, and hopefully she & the Repubs would roll back & reverse the entire legislation passed by 0bozo & fellow socialist demoRAT commie pigs.

I’m betting this is the most covered and analyzed book signing tour in history. I’ve gone back and checked stories about Hillary and Bill Clinton’s book signing tours, as well as 0bama’s, and there is nowhere near the covereage and analysis offered. Local coverage has been overwhelmingly positive, which held counter the negative national media. The book, the tour, the crowds (the fact that the crowds are large, and willing to stand for hours in the cold is fantastic) are all combining to make the heads of the leftist loons explode. They are falling all over themselves coming up with crackpot stories that make them look more childish than ever. If that all the better they can do, I’d say Palin is in for a pretty good run the next few years.

The book is well worth the money. Complete opposite of what the Liberals have been saying about it. Most normal, middle American people will be able to relate to her.

Sarah is beautiful,likable, and normal. She’s your average American woman and people identify with her. I would love to see her in the White House.

Bookstores keep selling out of Sarah’s book, and have to order more.

Well, at least Sarah is creating or saving some jobs.

Additional help during book signings.
UPS Delivery.
The trucking industry.
The Publishing Company.
The Jet Rental industry.
The Hotel industry.

I would too. But only after we eliminate the vermin and scum in the place, and then disinfect it.

I think I will take my already read copy of Sarah’s book and stand in front of her bus as she leaves IH-35 and heads to Fort Hood on US-190 since no other stops are planned for Texas. At least she will pass within a mile of my house...

I really don’t understand why she isn’t making more Texas stops unless it is the campaign plan to not spend a lot of time in the states known to be in the bag...

I love Sarah Palin and what she stands for.
The liberals are like immature teenagers rolling their eyes and calling the grown-up mom (in this case, Sarah) stupid.
But they have to KNOW deep down in their hearts that she is RIGHT.
We need more grown-ups in Washington.

Just wondering what the turn-out would be like at a McCain book tour. She was manacled with an anchor.

Went to the signing today. Very effeciently done by the book store. I arrive at about 7:30. They had it sectioned off just outside the northside of the store; had to show salesslip to get in the area. They let people in 50 at a a time beginning at 9:00. Did not get inside until about 11:30 but Sarah and the family passed by us on the sidewalk on the way in, about six feet away. Yep, dressed in red. Todd carrying Trig. Pretty as a movie star but without the jaded look. Once inside —and into the warmth— when fast. Thirty minutes later I was out the door with book in hand. No, pictures allowed, but they maybe on the stores’
web site. She was seated behind a counter against the back of the store, back wall, second floor. Watched her as she signed. Working away like a little beaver! They would feed her book, she would sign and push it on to her right, where it would be put on a stack. Kind of amusing, because it looked like factory production! No personalizations. She was her own signing machine LoL! So basically she just greeted people, and said a few remarks, The signing was rote; her manner was was not. Don’t know why, but a bit surprised her hand is small. And again, a beautiful woman. Handed the clerk my saleslip and went down the stairs, at the bottom of which I saw Todd and Trig. Patted Trig on the back and shook his hand. He is smaller than I expected, and not at all gruff, and like her looks younger than age. A very pleasant experience, over all. The people in the line with me were very pleasant, and of course very Pro-Palin. Mike Gallagher was broadcasting from the store, and my neighbor, Eric got to speak a few words. A good time was had by all, as they say. Weather chilly—in’ 30s’’ and dry.

So it’s okay, there’s no copyright issues with me quoting you on my badge there in that interview? I was interviewed by several different people from different media, and they all focused on your quote, giving me a chance to talk about FR! :-)

And to think we almost didn’t get to go at all! God works in mysterious ways, LOL.

He also asked specifically about FR, and let me give a good long answer, but sadly that didn’t make the video.

Another video, but I didn't talk to this station: Palin Stops in Plano for Book Signing

The reporter seems a bit snooty to me because Sarah isn't using the media to promote herself, LOL!
