It is my understanding that the person who drops the puck at a Philadelphia Flyers hockey game is generally received with a certain amount of booing.
Last night, Sarah Palin, being invited by the right-wing owner of the Flyers to drop the ceremonial puck, was greeted with a chorus of boos that overwhelmed whatever noise her supporters tried to make.
Fox News edited out most of the booing and claimed she received a "mixed" welcome. The Associated Press and CNN also referred to this "mixed" welcome. All in the name of "fairness," of course. Give the POW a break, for Christ's sake!
I've seen the videos. There was nothing "mixed" about it. Sarah Palin was just about booed off the ice by the fans.
What's really sad about his miserable excuse for a human being is that earlier in the day she told a group at a fundraiser that she would stop some of the booing from those nasty Philadelphia fans by putting Piper, her 7-year old daughter, in a Flyers jersey. "How dare they boo Piper!" she said.
She USED her daughter to ward off the nastiness. Didn't work.
The Rangers won the game 4-3.
