Staying up all night. Missing classes and work. The cold. The exacting rules. None of that stopped hundreds of Minnesotans from lining up to see Sarah Palin Monday at her book signing at the Mall of America.
Before dawn, about 500 people snaked in a line about a quarter-mile long at the mall for the chance to interact with the former Republican vice presidential nominee.
The mall stop is part of Palin's tour to smaller cities across the country to promote her book, "Going Rogue."
By 11:40 -- a full 20 minutes before her scheduled noon event -- Palin ascended the stage to cheers from the crowd, joined by baby Tryg and her husband, Todd Palin.

Stassen-Berger is a known lefty......
There were thousands in attendance.....not just “hundreds”....
Heading home from work in a moment or two.....Have to drive by the MOA..
Maybe I’ll have a traffic report for y’all later....
Typical lefty propaganda trick, she said “before dawn” there were 500 people not how many were there at noon.
Dumbass reporter could have cracked the book to almost any page to get the spelling right.
From the state that’s represented by Stewart Smalley.
Yep....twenty minutes early.....
...a class act. Not the narcissistic, ego maniacal worm that we currently have in the WH. She knew people had been waiting AND even though she is longer technically a servant of the people, she still feels she is. And wants to serve again...I hope.
I was listening to a local talker this am @5:30....A gal called in who was standing in line at the time and said ‘conservatively’ 800-1000 in line.....
Of course 500 people can stand in a line shorter than 1/4 mile i doubt there is three feet of space between every person waiting in line.
Palin shows up 20 minutes early to meet small town people. Obama shows up 2 hours late to announce a troop level increase in Afghanistan.
Run ‘Cuda, run. Then we will know (of a certainty) what you are made of.
Yup; late in the article:
Critics, including independent reviewers and former McCain staffers, have questioned the veracity of book's tales.
Some McCain folks have said the book, which includes some sharp criticisms of her treatment during the 2008 presidential race, is designed as political payback.
In spite of this, the article quoted a couple of young adults and one 14-year old girl who were excited about meeting her.

Isn’t she related to that quadrennial(at least until 1988)DFL candidate Harold Stassen?
What a left-wing nut job he was/is.
Not only 1/4 mile long but looks to average three abreast.
Sarah shows up 20 min early to meet thousands that voluntarily came out for their own reasons - Zero shows up 2 hrs. late after compelling (by virtue of his office) military cadets to show up 3 hours early after a L-O-N-G ass day of study and PT.
Would Sarah have had to compel the cadets? Would she have been hours late? (I don't think so)
I posted this on grey’s AAR thread....
