    Costco Protects Palin From Tomatoes By Taking Them Off Shelves

    A Costco in Utah took tomatoes off the shelves during a visit by Sarah Palin, after the Alaska Governor was pelted with the fruit on a stop at the Mall of America. Via Harpers, the Salt Lake Tribune reports:

    Rappaport stopped at the Salt Lake City Costco to do some shopping, unaware that Palin was scheduled to be there for a book signing. [...]
    The clerk told her they had no tomatoes that day.

    No tomatoes? At Costco?

    As she was leaving, she noticed a man with a store manager's name tag and asked him why they had no tomatoes. He informed her the store did have tomatoes, but they were taken off the shelves for a few hours.

    It turns out that Palin had been pelted with a tomato at an earlier stop on her book tour and the management at the Costco was determined it wouldn't happen here.
    Okay so it was only tomatoes,but if the anti's had there way today tomatoes tomorrow handgun ammunition

    I feel safer knowing that those tomatoes are locked up.

    I was unaware that Costco sold ammo. Then I read the story,

    agree with you dukalmighty........this is typical anti logic/behavior......
    think about it........ what if the perpetrator used whatever else was handy...like, potato, corn shuck, lemon, lime, banana, canned fruit/veggies, got a baseball, tennis ball, basketball or football from sporting goods, slab of ribs, box of rice.....

    I could go on for hours about what else a person could have used at the Costco to throw at a person, just like I could go on for hours with what a person could use as a weapon against someone instead of a gun

    yep....typical anti logic

    I've been wondering about the cause of the tomato shortage for the past year.
    Do you think there is some "political" reason?
