Other than this picture providing yet another example of classic liberal hypocrisy, why is this story even news? It seems to me that from the size of the crowd at the event vs. the number of protesters outside, this protest was an Epic Fail.
Oregonian: [...] "When the other party's wrong, we stiffen our spines," Palin told about 900 people who attended a fundraising dinner for the Lane County Republican Party. "Why not be the party of not just no, but hell no," she shouted.
Palin's visit to what is considered Oregon's most liberal city attracted dozens of protesters who waved signs and taunted the mostly well-dressed crowd entering the Eugene Hilton, where the event was held.
So more people in Oregon’s most liberal city were willing to pluck down good money to hear Palin than were willing to come out and protest her. That isn't what I would call a very successful protest.
