Who's a scaredy-cat?

One of the more amusing tropes from the Palinista camp is that the left is afraid of her. Well, looky here. Who's afraid of whom?

Gryphen reports on trying to report on $arah's* book signing event in home-town Wasilla.
There were a few calls of "Sarah, Sarah" before the line started to wind its way up the stairs to have their audience with Queen Ester of the North. I thought "We better hurry if we are going to find a good place to set up our camera."

My first hint that something may be wrong down in Who-ville was when I was asked for my ID, not once, but twice. Then as Dennis and I were about to sign in, and the lady behind the desk took our picture with a little digital camera! WTF? I have never had anybody do that before at any other event that I attended as a media representative. I wondered why there was such tight security, unaware that my question was only seconds from being answered.

Almost as soon as I had my picture taken I felt a hand on my shoulder.

I turned around and came face to face with a local police officer who quickly apologized and then informed me that I was on the "banned list".

"I am on the WHAT list?" I asked.

"The banned list sir, I am going to have to escort you off of the property. This is a private event."

Those super-scary bloggers! Banned!

BONUS: Check out Mudflat's tribute to the Ex-Governor, 12 Days of Christmas.

*I swiped that typography for $arah's name from the comments at The Immoral Minority. It seems to be very popular.
