Lots of big world leaders are scheduled to appear at the UN this week. George W. Bush is there, for the last time as U.S. president. So is Iranian overlord Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, bringing with him a lot of protesters. But no one, of course, is bigger than Sarah Palin. Sure, the Alaska Governor isn’t actually going to say anything substantive while she’s in town—there will be photo ops with people from Afghan president Hamid Karzai to celebrity activist Bono, but she’s not giving a single speech or even issuing a press conference (she hasn’t given one of those since accepting the nomination). But whatever: everyone loves her, right?
Since the UN headquarters are just a few blocks from Radar‘s headquarters, we decided to go check out the throngs of rabid fans who had no doubt camped out overnight to claim some prime Palin-spotting real estate.
