SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah's Republican Party Chairman is disappointed Sarah Palin will only be signing books for a short time today at Salt Lake City's Costco store.

Dave Hansen said he's been trying to arrange some kind of party event since he learned Palin was coming to town. Late last week, Palin's people told him she wasn't doing that kind of thing. But Hansen said he's read of at least one such event in Minnesota.


"Sometimes I wonder if they forget that it was the Republicans that made her into the position to where she could have a book signing," said Hansen.

Hansen doesn't know if the snub came from Palin herself, but he won't be at the book signing; and it's not because he doesn't have a Costco card.

"I don't do lines, and I definitely don't do lines at 10 degrees either, so I won't be down there," Hansen said.

Palin will be at the Costco at 1818 S. 300 West between noon and 3 p.m. She will be signing copies of her new book, "Going Rogue."
