Apparently Sarah Palin's manager made a mistake by choosing Mall of America as a stop on the tour for her new book, "Going Rogue."  The national book tour of mostly conservative cities has gone without incident until yesterday, when a man was arrested for throwing a tomato at the sexy former Alaskan Governor.  The fruit missed her by about ten feet and splattered onto an unlucky police officer instead.  According to WCCO, the man was identified as 33-year-old Jeremy Paul Olson, who also goes by the name Jeremiah Wobbe.  He was arrested and booked on assault and disorderly conduct charges - and has since become a local and national hero.

    Why did you call her sexy sarah palin. that's sexist and weird.

  • Dimmu Borgir 5 years ago

    She was called sexy because she is.

    A liberals idea of sexy is Rosie O'Donnell.

    Thanks for the comments - definitely wasn't meant to be sexist, or weird. The fact is that she's been called "sexy" by pretty much everyone in the media. She's known more for her looks than anything she has accomplished politically. If it wasn't for her looks, I'm sure she wouldn't even be where she is today. This is an opinion shared by many - was not meant to be creepy!

    To be honest, I think Maggie hit something here: Palin is easily being carried down this infamous road solely on her looks. Her serendipitous nomination as a VP candidate was nothing more that a desperate attempt by the republicans to bring their own "change" to America. Unfortunately they skip the IQ test. This all being said, I'd hit that.
