This is where Joe Biden points to George Bush and says "91% of the time, ladies and gentlemen."

I was thinking that during the last debate when McCain started going on about small government and cutting spending. I think it’s so blindingly obvious that Republicans completely take their guns’n’god’n’god bless America base for a ride, whip them up for votes once every four years and totally ignore them otherwise, but I don’t really think that’s all that interesting because, lets be honest, they’re best left ignored. I do think though that the more intelligent end of the Republican spectrum by now must surely not be sitting there taking the small government/cut spending promises seriously anymore. And if not, just how many times will a Republican candidate have to get up there and go on and on about that only to do the exact opposite on a record scale before Republicans WILL stop believing it?

Palin drops puck to boos, cheers

Filed Under: 2008, Palin

From NBC/NJ's Matthew E. Berger
PHILADELPHIA -- A healthy mix of boos and cheers greeted Palin last night as she dropped the ceremonial first puck for the Philadelphia Flyers season -- with an assist from her youngest daughter.

For days, blogs and Web sites had suggested Palin’s appearance would be met mostly with jeers. But Palin received a mixed reaction as she joined the winner of the team’s “Ultimate Hockey Mom” contest, Cathy O’Connell from Erdenheim, Pa.

Perhaps it was Palin’s youngest daughter, Piper, who emerged with her in a Flyers jersey, which helped mollify the crowd. The Alaska governor had even foreshadowed the tactic earlier in the day.

“I’ve been warned that Flyers fans, they get so enthused, that they boo everybody at the drop of the puck,” she said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Saturday afternoon. “But what I thought I’d do is I’d put Piper in a Flyers jersey, bring her out with me. How dare they boo Piper!”

Palin stepped from the team tunnel and out onto a black carpet with Piper and middle daughter Willow and walked across center ice. Some fans clapped, while others booed or held their thumbs pointed down. She shook hands with O’Connell and Flyers captain Mike Richards, and gave a kiss to Rangers assistant captain Scotty Gomez, a native Alaskan.

Palin knelt down, posed for photos with the players and O’Connell and dropped the puck with her simultaneously. She then shook the players’ hands again and walked off into the tunnel.

Palin watched part of the game in a skybox and also gave interviews to Comcast SportsNet and ESPN.
stay classy, Ms. Palin.

Philly fans boo those who earn it. She earned it.

I'm pissed that Ed Snider would try to make a political statement here, but then again I'm not a big Snider fan or Palin fan, so I'm biased anyway.

Lucky for her, they played the music as she entered at a very high volume so you could barely here the noise on the ice. According to people actually in the crowd though, it was mostly boos with a few cheers.

Oh the irony.

Can you pick out the key word?

Obama would not get booed like Sarah Palin got booed. That's not snark, that's reality.

There's nothing particularly extreme about booing, especially at a sports event.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin accidentally mistook some of her own fans for protesters Monday.

A massive crowd of at least 20,000 spread across the parking lot of Richmond International Raceway. Many on the outer periphery, more than 100 yards from the stage, couldn't hear.

They started chanting, "Louder! Louder!" Palin thought they were protesters, looked toward them and said, "I hope those protesters have the courage and honor to give veterans thanks for their right to protest."

Besides how funny the misunderstanding is, I find it quite interesting that Palin's first reaction to the "protestors" is to essentially question their patriotism.

And here I thought she was promising change from the past 8 years.

You're wrong. Why do you think she got booed?
