An estimated 1,500 people lined up at a PX store at Fort Bragg this morning to see former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and have her sign copies of her new memoir.

Palin greeted people at a table just inside the door of the North Post Exchange, a Wal-Mart-size department store on the base. The line waiting to see her spilled out the front door and wrapped around the building.

Palin’s tour bus, with large photos of her plastered on the sides, pulled up to the store around 11:15 a.m., and she walked in, sat down and started signing books, without any opening remarks.
