I highly doubt it.  The anonymous blogger cites a POLITICO article, you know a news source who likes to use anonymous sources.  “Goldeneye” could have at least bothered to link to the article.  Well unlike having to depend on a Washington, DC publication to tell me of the comings and goings of the Iowa State Fair, I was there that day.  I had the chance to briefly speak with Todd Palin and have my picture taken with Governor Palin and there was not a State Trooper in sight.

Was that the case all day?  I doubt it, but considering the tiny little fact that the Iowa State Patrol is charged with providing security at the State Fair, what’s the news in this?

Then again, when is there ever news with anything they blog on?

Update: By the way, I’d like to make it abundantly clear that I do not begrudge the Palin family having protection, and if she did have a State Trooper escort I would not have any problem with it.  My point is that the UTGD folks were making an issue out of something that didn’t even happen.
