    Grand Rapids welcomes Sarah Palin as she kicks off her book tour

    Just imagine how many people will show up in a big city?

    Grand Rapids welcomes Sarah Palin as she kicks off her book tour

    KENTWOOD, Mich. (WZZM/Detroit Free Press) Large crowds are gathering inside Woodland Mall this afternoon as people wait for a chance to meet Sarah Palin.

    Everyone in line inside received wrist bands this morning for the opportunity to meet the former Vice Presidential candidate. Many were out well before dawn. It was 4:55 when the first cheer went up.

    "Sarah! Sarah! Sarah"

    And that's 4:55 this morning when the thermometer had dipped into the 30s. But the 500 or so people in line didn't mind the sleepless night or the onset of winter.

    "What she represents is what we're standing in line for," said Robin Case, 44, of Traverse City, who set up a chair and sleeping bag at 9 p.m. Tuesday to make sure she got the chance to meet Sarah Palin, former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate. "She's real and she's standing up for what we believe in."

    Palin was scheduled to begin her "Going Rogue" book tour at the Barnes & Noble Booksellers at the Woodland Mall in Kentwood.

    By 7 a.m., the line had swelled to more than 1,500 people as Barnes & Noble wrapped orange wristbands around Palin fans' wrists.

    I just heard that the number of people who showed up today is estimated to be around 10,000.

    Not too bad for a political "nobody" like her, huh?

    Glenn Beck was in Longview a while back, he only got around 4,000. So this is impressive.

    Palin has a huge following. Hopefully it'll last through 2012 or perhaps 2016.

    Grand Rapids is a big city, second largest in the state. It is also far and away the most conservative area of the state.

    Why do you liberals keep making these threads about Palin?

    ....

    When I say "I am going to the big city", it's Grand Rapids. It is plenty big enough to be called a big city. Metro population of over 3/4 of a million people.
