Palin Does Plano

If you're looking for copies of Sarah Palin's Going Rogue: An American Life, you'll be out of luck tonight at Legacy Books in Plano -- they're all sold out after the author's signing session for hundreds of supporters this afternoon. Our photographer Danny Fulgencio compared the scene to a line-up for a Six Flags ride, with the line to meet the would-be VP candidate snaking through the store and back outside. "It was like organized chaos," Danny says, noting that the scene didn't draw any counter-protesters, only fans who no doubt dream of the day she's president of the "real" America.

Tickets for Palin's signing line sold out days ago, though Palin's mom, dad and husband Todd were on hand downstairs to greet fans and sign books for anyone shut out of the main event. As book buyers descended the stairs with three or four signed books in their arms, Legacy ran out of the hardcover just ahead of Palin's 2 p.m. departure.

You'll find more shots from the store in this slide show.
