ROGUE VEGETABLE

Man Threw Tomatoes at Palin

Some show their disdain for politicians by throwing shoes, but a Minnesota man went the way of old-school theater heckling by throwing tomatoes at Sarah Palin. During a book-signing event at the Mall of America in Minnesota, the man threw two tomatoes at the former Alaska governor and missed; he may, however, face charges for assaulting the police officer whom he hit. Palin supporters were said to have lined up for the event Black Friday-style, waiting outside in freezing temperatures several hours before the event began. The former 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee showed up wearing her signature red to promote Going Rogue, and luckily didn't end up with a stained blouse, or stained ego.
