V.P. Candidate Sarah Palin Booed Badly Before A Flyers' Game

Wow. Philly fans are rough, and boy did it sound like they skewered Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin badly...

PHILADELPHIA - To a mixture of boos and cheers, Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin dropped the ceremonial first puck Saturday night at the Philadelphia Flyers’ home opener against the New York Rangers.

The Alaska governor and self-described “hockey mom” heard a few boos when she walked onto the ice, but that soon turned to polite applause as she headed to center ice with Mike Richards of the Flyers and Scott Gomez — from Alaska — of the Rangers.

Palin waved to the crowd and smiled as she dropped the puck to applause and cheers. Palin stuck around and watched two periods in the Rangers’ 4-3 win over the Flyers.

No one said the fans in the city of Brotherly Love were ever known for their class, but man, does it ever sound bad....

Why does it sound bad? Aren't politicians pretty much always booed at sporting events? I've never seen one appear who wasn't booed.

And Palin, with all of her hate rhetoric lately, probably has more of a reason to be booed than any other politician I know of...

Perhaps those hockey fans just wanted to watch a game and not have politics shoved down their throat and be expected to applaud for someone with whom they disagree.

I wouldn't applaud either.
