Roguish Liberal Behavior

Since the AP has 11 fact checkers to pore over Sarah Palin's book, I figured I could be one fact checker looking into the allegations about angry protesters at her book signing in Noblesville, IN.

The liberal bloggers are going crazy over a video that purports to show a crowd angry because they couldn't get their books signed at an event in Noblesville. So I did some research and this is what I came up with.

Unlike the liberal bloggers who are claiming she was only there for 30 minutes and then whisked off, in fact she was there from 5:30 PM until 9:00 PM
Palin stepped off her tour bus, holding her youngest son, Trig, just after 5:30 p.m. at the Borders store at Hamilton Town Center, 6News' Rick Hightower reported.
The store handed out 1,000 wristbands for Thursday night's book signing, which wrapped up just before 9 p.m. Those who got to meet a woman they consider an idol walked away happy.
In the local media report they include the comments of a Teresa Hedricks, who was critical of the way things went. Well I did find a Teresa Hedricks of IN on Twitter, @cfmommie11 and lo and behold, she is currently following 91 people. 89 of them are Hollywood celebrities, One for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the only political person on her follower list is, Barack Obama.
"I'm very disappointed. I think it was very rude. She could have at least apologized, and she didn't even do that," said Teresa Hedrick.

The last thing you might find odd in the video is that while they talk about an angry mob, and cite numbers of up to 300 people who didn't get their book signed, once again the local reporter says it was a few dozen.
But not everyone went away happy. Several dozen people who had wristbands were turned away.
On the video all you seem to hear is one woman's voice and a lot of curious looks by others in the crowd toward her.

One woman hollering into a microphone, in what looks to be a staged event by some liberals to somehow prove some sort of point, does not an angry mob make.

I purposely am not posting the video, or a link to the liberal sites trying to make it go viral simply for the reason that I am not going to contribute to their attempts. You want it, visit any liberal blog and I am sure they will have it posted.

Instead I post this one from Politico.
