Bristol Palin, Sarah Palin Hit MOA For Book Signing

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) – Former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol were in the Twin Cities on Wednesday.

People lined up throughout the day at the Mall of America in Bloomington as Bristol Palin made an appearance for her new memoir, titled “Not Afraid of My Life. My Journey So Far.” Fans needed to purchase the book to get it signed.

To get Sarah Palin’s autograph, fans had to buy either “America By Heart” or “Going Rogue.”

Bristol Palin recently was a contestant on Dancing With The Stars. Sarah Palin is still mulling taking a run at the Republican nomination for president. Earlier this week, Michele Bachmann announced she is running. Tim Pawlenty also threw his hat in the in the ring back in May.

    Go home Palin we already have one nut case by the name of Bachmann to embarrass the state of Minnesota.

      @Bb

      You forgot about the other 300 nuts jobs that showed for the book signing.

    2. john st.paul says:

      Don’t forget our lovely Governor Dayton in that mix.

  2. Bob says:

    There have been half a dozen reports about this book signing. News said there were seventy people maximum there for the book signings. A real flop considering that the Palin chose this Mall because Palin is so popular in this area. Looks like the public are really getting tired of all the dishonesty that goes with this family of grifters. People who watched the movie last night said the celebrities did not threaten to kill this family–Sarah is just playing the drama queen and trying to be the victim.

      I was at the MOA (not to see the Palins, just was there shopping!) from about noon until about 4 PM and there were MAYBE 40 to 50 people lined up just after 4:00 when we left, and that included the people setting up the books and such. No clue where the Mall folks came up with the number 1500, unless throngs of folks showed up just before the scheduled event or throughout the evening.

    BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Security is tight as Sarah Palin helps her daughter kick off a book tour at Mall of America.

    Both Bloomington police and mall security are on hand Wednesday as the former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate appears with Bristol Palin at a joint book-signing.

    Customers have to pass through a checkpoint before getting the two to sign copies of their latest books.

    The mall estimates about 1,500 people turned out and that the Palins did about 700 autographs.

    Bristol Palin’s memoir, “Not Afraid of Life,” came out last week and Wednesday is her first public event. Sarah Palin’s “America by Heart” was released last fall. HarperCollins imprints published both books.

    Filthy trash, both of the leaches.

  7. Alfred says:

    Why are the liberal lefties so full of hatred and bile?

    1. Works both ways says:

      Well, Alfred (funny name) they can’t all be as charming as Ann Coulter.

      1. Alfred says:

        Ann Coulter? Another hot, intelligent conservative woman.

        Liberal men can’t handle these women because these woman have more testosterone than most liberal men.

        1. Ann Why Such a Long Face? says:

          Ann Coulter looks like Alice Cooper. Yeah, that’s real hot……conservative men must have really really low standards…

          1. Interesting says:

            Just because Ann is ugly doesn’t mean she isn’t smart

            1. Truth says:

              What do looks have to do with leadership?
              If it comes to looks, compare conservatives Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingram and more to the icons of the Democrats such as Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Andrea Dorkin, Michelle Obama, Janet Reno,

              What I have noticed, watch who the liberals attack the most viciously and that it who they are afraid of. Sarah Palin is at the top of the list so you libs should be worried.

              1. eurobrat says:

                I don’t understand how anybody thinks Sarah and Michelle are hot in the first place. Stupidity is not attractive.

    2. neversupportaquitter says:

      well Alfred, consider someone in the US who never heard of her up until that failed attempt a few yrs ago…what do we have to go on? When we consider all of her interviews done on tv yrs ago while she was running for VP…then consider her practically non-existent reason for quitting her Governors position…while I can’t say I hate her, I truly hope the citizens of the US are not that blind/deaf and will not vote for her if she does run. That and I’ll never contribute anything such as buying her book, or anything that lines her pockets with my cash.

    Who gives a freeking flip abiout this twit or her hoe daugter trying to make a buck for getting knocked up – seriously, go away!

    1. Wimpy dude looks sick says:

      Ho is speaked ho
      A hoe for the garden is spelled hoe.
      morons abound Sandy and you be a leader. lol

  9. Max says:

    I really don’t think 1,500 people is a big deal. I’ll bet Macy’s at MOA gets that many customers coming through in a day. I love that you had to buy one of the books to get her autograph……I think that makes it pretty clear what Sarah is really after…

    1. Chris says:

      I was at the MOA at 4 PM, an hour before her scheduled appearance. There were MAYBE 40 people waiting, and that included the people setting up the book displays, etc. There were probably 1500 people in the whole mall, but clearly not the crowds they were expecting based upon the space they had cordoned off. And, I concur that 1500 is no biggie, if indeed that number is accurate. Note AP said the Mall reported that many, not an actual AP reporter at the site.

  10. Sarah The Quitter says:

    Sarah Palin quit her job as governor with the lame excuse that she had to, to raise money for lawsuits against her….bs….she is a quitter & a flake

  11. Murph says:

    The most disgusting thing about the GOP is how they treat their southern poor supporters.Those not recieving anything whatsoever for their votes.COAL for instance,sequestration of co 2 is one thing,one very expensive thing.Yet the co 2 is still here,just hiding below the surface.Had they pursued an algae alternative that actually creates oxygen from coal emissions it would be ideal.However the byproduct of that [algae oil] could be burned in autos and aircraft and home heating units as well.Creating a huge threat to BIG OIL and it’s vast profits> So the coal belt still suffers,the air gets less breathable and the end of the world still approaches.They treat their long suffering so called religious conservatives as robots and give nothing in return but empty rhetoric and more poverty.Will it ever end?

  12. Chris says:

    Other reports said there were 300 folks there to see the Palins, and they left half an hour early as there was nobody left who wished to buy books and autographs. Sounds to me like their 15 minutes is just about up!

  13. Raymond says:

    tell you what lefty liberals, any intelligent liberal woman who got a chance to get a nice shaft work from conservative man will become crazy as hell, wlll change their way of thinking, change their lifestyle just to maintain the relationship with that conservative man. Conservative man like me knows better the G-spots of these liberal woman… Hahahaha! EVERY TIME A LIBERAL GOT A NICE SHOT FROM A CONSERVATIVE MAN, THERE IS NO MORE FOOLING AROUND AND THINKIN ABOUT ABORTION WILL JUST BE HISTORY.hahahahaha!

    Yes the made up statistics make it seem like a happy event instead of a failed attempt at grifting a few more dollars. Fairy tales are always happy.
