More like a homecoming than a booksigning

The last few days seemed very quiet regarding Sarah Palin news. But things heated up again today as Palin signed books from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Curtis D. Menard Sports Center in her hometown of Wasilla.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that "at least 750 people have turned out in Sarah Palin's hometown to get a signed copy of the former governor and Republican vice presidential candidate's best-selling memoir, "Going Rogue.""

Palin had received a warm welcome one week ago at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage and Eielson Air Force Base near Fairbanks, but since the bases didn't have time to prepare for the general public, they were only open to military personnel.

Due to an overwhelming response, Palin vowed to hold another Alaska signing that everyone could visit and that was the event that took place today.

The Anchorage Daily news reported that, "the Wasilla event felt more like a homecoming than anything. Most people waiting in yellow-rope cordoned lines on the indoor turf floor of the sports complex live in the Valley. Many said they knew Palin, her children or her parents personally."

It seems as though today's book signing won't be the only thing to discuss as Palin tweeted this before heading to the event...
"Heading 2 book signing event but will b posting on FaceBook page new,grave concerns about Congress/Prez"rushed" action2 take over healthcare."

With Palin's Facebook posts becoming major news stories, it will be interesting to hear what the former Governor has to say about the health care bill moving forward in the Senate.
