Palin's book tour comes to Virginia

Anita Kumar

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will travel to Virginia this weekend for the seventh stop of her national tour to promote her book, Going Rogue: An American Life.

Palin, the 2008 vice presidential nominee, will appear at a Barnes & Noble in Roanoke at 10 a.m. Sunday -- the first Virginia stop on the much ballyhooed tour. She's expected in Fairfax County in a couple weeks.

Check out the Post stories on Palin's first two stops in Michigan and Indiana where crowds lined up early to catch a glimpse of the possible presidential hopeful and get their books signed.

The Roanoke Times reports that more than 1,000 people are expected to turn out.

Local Republican officials are expected to attend, but no statewide officials. And yes, that includes Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell, who distanced himself from the controversial conservative figure during his campaign.

Who cares? She is not playing with all 52 cards in the deck. More than likely she resigned to prevent some of her abuses from coming to light. Can women be card carrying members of a militia? If so, she might end up being president after all.

Sarah Palin's approval numbers are on the rise while Obama's ratings plummet.
