Would you wait twelve hours to see Sarah Palin? And if so, what are you drinking?

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Supporters of Sarah Palin reportedly began gathering at a Borders branch at Chapel Hills Mall, 1710 Briargate Boulevard in Colorado Springs, in order to secure a place in line to see Sarah Palin, who isn't scheduled to begin pitching her new book, Going Rogue: An American Life, until 7 p.m. Meaning some folks may be waiting for twelve hours or more in frigid temperatures just to get a glimpse of this lipsticked pit bull.

What kind of person would exhibit such devotion? Look no further than the video above, which features a throng outside a Palin signing in Columbus, Ohio last month. One guy compares to her to a rock star, while another fan says SP makes her proud to be a woman.

Me, too! So we have that in common. See -- we can all get along!
