The count: 1,500 people. I guess they don’t have large protest demonstrations in Alaska. A group of women sitting over coffee decided to stage the protest. It must have resonated with a lot of folks because word spread over the internet and through the Eddie Burke radio show on KYBR AM in Anchorage. Burke gave out the cell phone numbers of the two principal organizers. They received hostile phone calls but that only galvanized the base of Palin opponents. Burke called the women “socialists, baby killing maggots.” Wow!
Daily Kos ran a contest on the most popular sign from the Anchorage rally:
