Sarah Palin Gets Pelted with a Tomato in Minneapolis

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin felt the love Monday during an appearance at the Mall of America, in the Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington, when a man hurled a tomato from the second level balcony at her.

Police arrested 33-year-old Jeremy Paul Olson from St. Paul, but they think he also goes by the name Jeremiah Wobbe. Wobbe was booked on assault with a salad vegetable and disorderly conduct charges.

Officers said when they arrested him, they found two more tomatoes he’d been carrying. What a shame he didn’t get a chance to lob them at Palin too.

Palin was at the mall signing copies of her heavily ghostwriten book, “Going Rogue.”

    Jeremy Paul Olson will become our newest folk hero in the Iraqi shoe thrower œuvre. Good for him. All these idiots lined up for 48 hours in the cold and snow to see this silly woman aren’t representative of the views the majority of Americans hold for Palin.

  2. feminazi says:

    Too bad it wasn’t a chocolate pie. Chocolate stains, you know. Palin is such a polarizing individual and she incites this sort of reaction from people. You either love her or hate her. You know how I feel.

  3. Pechanga says:

    It was inevitable that Palin got clobbered with either a tomato, a rock, or a pie.

    Well, like Joe in Colorado said, we have a new hero in these here U-nited States! 🙂

    “Wobbe was booked on assault with a salad vegetable…”

    FOFLMAO! I love it!

    This made my day! What a glorious way to begin an otherwise dull Tuesday at work.

    I wonder how long it will be until the paleo feminists appears condemning violence against women, and how this act sends the wrong message and blah, blah, blah?

    F**k ’em if they show up. Palin deserved it.

    Where was Todd whilst all this drama was unfolding? I thought he was always by Sarah’s side, her self-anointed protector? Geesh, on the campaign trail, you would’ve thought he was McCain’s running mate.

    I believe that we should not stoop to the level of the followers of Palin no matter how much we would want to. This was wrong. There are better ways to counter her. Peaceful protest is better to get our message across. We do not want to stoop to her level. I took many hateful taunts at the Columbus book signing when I protested there and if the police had not been close I feel would have been physically assaulted as they had to physically remove people away from me twice. This is America. We must get our message out about her in ways we can be proud of in the long run.

    I’m thinking the stuff we heard earlier about Caribou Barbie and the “worst dude” being on the outs is true. He’s no longer hanging around to stop her from screwing around (and you know damn well that’s what he was doing.)

  9. Mets Fan says:

    Lea Lea — Heeeeeeeeere’s Carol from Minnesota!

    Anyway, what amazes me is something like this hasn’t happened before now. From Palin’s nonsense Birther views, to her stupid comments about gays, to her neocon-drenched opinions on Afghanistan, Palin has knowingly made herself a target and in politics you reap, what you sow.

  10. Rock says:

    Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!

    I’m surprised this didn’t happen sooner, like when she stiffed those people in Indiana last month.

  11. sean says:

    I’ve never seen that photo of her before. Is it photoshop or is it real?

  12. Aunt Peg says:

    I don’t usually wish ill of people but after Bush, Cheney, and Sarah Palin, I discovered a whole new side to my personality.

    As a mother and a grandmother, the way this woman exploited her children — particularly, the little one born with Down Syndrome, Ms. Palin doesn’t belong on a book tour but before Child Protective Services.

    No sympathy for her from this old woman.

  13. Bill Hussein O'Reilly says:

    Sorry but Palin looks like a bad tranny to me.

    No offense intended to trannies, as I have several in my immediate family and they’re wonderful people.

  14. Prairiedog says:

    Hannity will be insufferable tonight.

    I can already hear him: “Gov. Palin is a courageous, moral warrior and liberals are now attacking her with poison fruit. This is an act of domestic terrorism.”

    The nuts on FOX say shit like this.

  15. woyoyo says:

    Too bad it wasn’t a brick and the dude had a better throwing arm. Hope the mall security cameras caught the event so we can enjoy it over and over and over.

  16. DMason says:

    Will the cop get disability pay for taking the flying tomato intended for McCandy? If not, then the Police Union needs to step in and file suit against the mall, the police force and McCandy.

  17. Estacada says:

    If I had been the cop I would’ve just looked the other way and done nothing.

    Is that wrong?

  18. Ximema says:

    I don’t like violence but I like Sarah Palin even less.

  19. Fran says:

    I don’t really consider hurling a fruit “assault with a salad vegetable” geez don’t the cops even know the difference between a fruit & vegetable???

    My only regret is the tomato did not actually hit her.
    Literally– it is a food fight.

    Bill Gates (Microsoft millionaire) took some pies in the face.

    Having food thrown at you is more humiliating than physically harmful.

    Actually this qualifies as an international event, as in spain they have the “throwing of the tomatoes” or “Tomatina” festival.

    Damn…. the guy missed Palin & hit an Officer instead…. now they will trump up Assaulting an Officer charges against the tomato thrower.

    Watch the guy will do jail time!

    Pity– he was even trying to use festive holiday colors & everything!

    SPLAT to Palin.

  20. Jim says:

    I’m sure legions would like to assault her with a vegetable. Poor tomatos.

  21. Reamus says:

    A true waste of two good tomatoes.

  22. Hari says:

    God deal. Too bad he didn’t have more tomatoes.Man this makes me proud about living in Minnesota. The people kick ass! Yes we have anew hero and too bad he didn’t have more tomatoes!

  23. Gov. Schwarzenegger consults Weichselbaum on Green Engine Initiative
    Eric Weichselbaum was included on a panel of experts from different sectors of the auto industry who met with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger this month to discuss a new low emissions engine initiative that the governor hopes to put into effect next year. The panel includes consultants from auto manufacturing, marketing, dealerships and consumer groups. Weichselbaum, whose expertise as an automobile customizer and racer brought him onboard, is familiar with the Governor’s strategies and said he looks forward to working closely with the panel to improve the environmental effects of high performance engines.
