Anti-Palin rally in Alaska one of the largest in state history...


from the Anchorage Daily News:

Hundreds of people protesting the policies of Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin lined a busy street on Saturday, waving signs and chanting, "Obama!"

The protest came about two hours after Palin delivered a rousing speech at Anchorage's new convention center before leaving the state to return to the campaign trail.

The protesters, including supporters of presidential candidate Barack Obama and those who don't agree with Palin's positions on abortion, polar bears, Iraq and other issues, lined one side of the street near the Loussac Library.

A much smaller number of mostly pro-Palin supporters were on the other side of the street, chanting, "Sarah! Sarah!"







LOVE IT !!! Wish I could personally thank those 1500 people. More photos here and here:

Actually this isn't the largest in state history... there was a native Alaskan rally in 1998 that was larger...

Several reports I read today were referring to the demonstration as the largest. But Ted says not - so I've changed the title to "one of the largest". Thanks for the correction. :)

Who cares if it was biggest or not, this just proves that it was big enough to show that not everyone there is crazy and I am glad they are standing up to her non-sense! Btw, I love all the signs...so creative!
