Critic Hurls Tomatoes at Palin During Book Tour, But Misses

December 8, 2009

(ChattahBox)—The former half-term governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, appeared at the giant Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. on Monday to much fanfare, with nearly 1,000 admirers waiting in line in the cold to catch a glimpse of their conservative idol. But one man, perhaps a literary critic of Palin’s ghost written tome, “Going Rogue” wasn’t a fan and he decided to hurl a couple of ripe tomatoes Palin’s way from a balcony. The tomato hurler missed Palin, as she clutched her son Trig, but struck Bloomington Police Commander Mark Stehik in the face.

Jeremy Paul Olson, 33, was arrested by police shortly after launching the messy tomatoes over the balcony in Palin’s direction. Olson was arrested for suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct. He could also be charged with assaulting a police officer.

It wasn’t immediately known what prompted Olson to display his literary criticism in such a fashion.

Palin signed books for nearly four hours, before attending a private $5,000 per plate dinner sponsored, by The Freedom Club State PAC.

Despite the many errors and misstatements found in Palin’ speedily written book, her devoted fans don’t seem to mind. The sales of “Going Rogue” recently surpassed 1,000,000
