Hillary Comes to La Jolla

Couldn't resist photographing what was sure to be a record turnout for a celebrity book-signing in La Jolla today. Hillary Clinton was in town to sign copies of her new bestselling book. News reports indicated only 900 books would be signed, one per customer, and it had to be bought new at the store. So that's roughly a $25,000 take for Warwick's Book Store. Not bad.

At the entrance to the store were protesters, some with gruesome anti-abortion photographs. One person encouraged people to buy Ann Coulter's book instead.

A splendid time was had by all.

Click on the photo above for a larger version of the line, which wrapped around the block in downtown La Jolla, starting at Prospect, then turning left at the corner of the Hard Rock Cafe onto Fay Ave, all along Fay Ave, then left at the corner onto Silverado, all along Silverado, then left onto Girard and into the store.

It looks like there's no line on the Fay Ave sidewalk, but that's because the line started moving while I was walking on the other side of the street, and people got up and ran so as to not lose their spot in line. The line coagulated at the corner of Fay and Silverado.

Both those Clintons need to get out of politics all together! I could go on forever bashing the hell out of the 8 year disaster that the Clintions were in the White House but I will save that for another time. The best I can say is thank God neither one of the Clintons is running for governor of California!

Isn't Hillary amazing in a way? I saw her at a parade once - she was the most polished, plastic thing I've ever seen. I was in an awe of sorts. Of course, she's no Angelyne!
