After a "heart-to-heart" talk with West Hollywood Mayor Jeffry Prang as a "huge mob scene" protested outside, Chad Michael Morrisette took down the controversial Sarah Palin effigy, which he said he saw as a Halloween display mixed with some election politics, two days earlier than he had planned.

During the 5 o'clock hour yesterday evening, a man parked a black truck with a noose wearing male dummy that wore a T-shirt saying "Chad, how does it fell?"
