The Republican Vice Presidential nominee gets a nasty reception at a hockey game.

When Sarah Palin showed up at the Wachovia Center on Saturday night to drop the ceremonial first puck at the Philadelphia Flyers home opener against the NY Rangers, she was received with a chorus of boos so loud, that the PA system had to be turned up to full volume.

They’re just jeaous.

Come on, people should show some respect. She is still a governor - I am not a big fan of her either but if you don’t like her, just don’t applaud. Her kids were there too.

She knew what was coming, come on, a republican coming to Philadelphia…ha! Thats my city!

Who’s “we” speak for yourself, Anonymous. And to the other (or possibly same) Anonymous…jealous of what? The awesome ability to spell?

The rudeness of America…What is happening to the people of our once respectful country. Have we suddenly become a country full of Jerry Springer guests and audience members? We have to be “P.C.” when it comes to Obama … and watch what we say … McCain gets criticized for referring to Obama as “That one” … But somehow it’s ok to treat a Governor, who has been a great asset to the people of her state plus she is a candidate for Vice President, like this?!? What’s up with that?
Real Nice People…. I would not be proud of my state if they acted that way!

I would have booed her too after the dirty campaigning she was doing. And if she is such a good Christian, she shouldnt be spreading hate and lies.

Monica Lewis October 13, 2008, 7:16 PM

Ria - the “we” includes me and about almost half of this country
Andrea - what “hate and lies” are you referring to?

Monica October 13, 2008, 7:19 PM

Ria - the “we” she is referring to includes me and about almost half of our country.
Andrea- what “hate and lies” are you referring to?

She’s not ‘spreading hate and lies’. There are always people filled with ‘hate’ whether you are at a McCain rally or an Obama rally. The questions that are being raised about Barack Obama’s affiliations with Ayers and the 20-years-spent with Rev. Wright are not “lies”. But even still, it is true what AK Mom says—what kind of country are we that would boo a mom and her children…even if you don’t want her for VP, then just sit quietly without clapping in support.

Andrea October 13, 2008, 8:06 PM

“Pallin around with terrorists”. I consider that a hate filled lie. That campaigning was meant to encite the people and it was working. Really really scary
territory to go. Obama sat on an education board with Ayers and several other prominent people. McCain has done the same thing but with different people with sketchy pasts. Big deal.

I read today that Palin knew the Philadelpha Flyers fans might boo her. Thats why she put Piper in a jersey. So if she knew they might be booed, then WHY DID SHE CHOOSE TO SUBJECT YOUR DAUGHTERS TO IT!!!!!! Just as she CHOSE to parade her 17 year old pregnant daughter and baby daddy at the RNC. Selfish selfish woman.

Try channeling some of your anger about Gov. Palin’s jersey choice into things that matter… like the Democratic presidential nominee befriending a domestic terrorist.

Monica October 13, 2008, 10:15 PM

I am angry at her for exploiting her kids.

As for you…do some research. Obama was a kid when Ayers belonged to the Weathermen. Ayers is now a college professor and he and Obama sat on an education board along with Mrs Anneberg, John McCains friend.

How about McCain being actual friends with G. Gordon Liddy? And have you heard of Charles Keating and the Keating 5? John McCain was one of those 5 and Keating went to prison for it.

The Ayers connection is so very weak but then exploited with a hateful, lying slant, which is now what you did too.

Monica  October 13, 2008, 10:35 PM

After September 11 Ayers was quoted as saying “he wished he had done more” during his Weathermen days. While, Ayers was not an active terrorist, when Obama befriended him - his anti-US sentiments were well-established. The point is no president should rub shoulders with terrorists. That’s not slant thats truth.

And I am sure you are kidding when you compare a financial crisis with actual bombings. I am familiar with Keating 5 and I also know that McCain was exonerated by the Ethics Committee after the scandal.

Everyone is welcome to their own opinions but not their own set of facts. And if you don’t support McCain/Palin policies that’s fine but being ignorant isn’t - perhaps you should do your research.

Andrea October 13, 2008, 11:23 PM

For those of you who would like to read the truthful story it is on the bipartisan website

You misquoted the EX-terrorist William Ayers as did the interviewer.

Do you really think that the University of Illinois would let a “terrorist” be a professor at their school? Get real sister!! Such a weak connection.

Hey… would you like to talk about Bush and the Republican administration who got us into an awful war over false pretenses? Now that is really an issue to talk about. Did you know that 3000 Christians just had to flee Mosul this week as the violence continues and they are being killed? There is no “winning” this war when we already lost almost 4,200 soldiers.

John McCain agrees with this war.

Monica  October 13, 2008, 11:45 PM


I would like to stay on topic. And yes, I do think that a university in one of the most liberal cities in America would hire someone like Ayers. If this connection was so weak, you would not throw Keating 5 out there and you would not resort to Bush-bashing, to distract from the original issue.

McCain is running, not Bush. And if I had enough time, I would love to discuss the war BUT here is the real important part - we ARE t war. So what is left to decide is which candidate you think would be able to manage it better (whether pulling out is an option is for another debate).

I hope that you are able to set aside the rhetoric and your anti-Bush sentiments and make an informed decision in this election. I believe it is the most important of our time. What really matters is which candidate will manage this country better. I admit that I am not psyched about McCain but I know that Obama’s vision of America is a scary one. In Obama’s America, progressive taxation will redistribute wealth (akin to socialist regimes), universal healthcare will bankrupt the healthcare system, and employing diplomacy indiscriminately will bring America to its knees at the mercy of radicals. Obama is the most liberal member of Congress, he is an extremist and has gone as far as to vote against a bill requiring medical care for babies delivered after surviving botched abortions. If all of the above is your hope for America, good luck to you.

Its been a pleasure, Andrea.

Monica  October 13, 2008, 11:53 PM

And one more thing, factcheck,org is affiliated with Penn State - a very liberal university. While, it does debunk myths on both sides, it has a slight liberal bias. Remember just because a site says its bipartisan does not mean it is, just like news outlets and newspapers - critical reading is necessary…

Make that UPenn….

Andrea October 14, 2008, 12:45 AM

Let’s see… you used the words terrorists, regimes, radicals, extremists, liberals, liberal bias and botched abortions and you say I use rhetoric?

Sounds like you come from the evangelical extreme right wing no stem cell research family values (ha, Palin…family values…abstinance…morals….pregnancy) group that made the country have to endure 8 years of George W. Bush. Thanks alot!

So to stay on topic…. Palin knew the crowd might boo her and she still chose to take the celebrity photo op and the children with her.

I am so very excited to vote the solid Obama/Biden ticket. Didnt you see John McCain said he is a decent family man! That is because McCain is decent way down deep and will not let the Republican machine make him a complete robot.

Sharon October 14, 2008, 8:50 AM

I heard plenty of booing, but also plenty of cheering and saw people clapping. I say no big deal, that’s normal for some thing like that. (True it’s rude, but at least this is at a hockey game, they do this out on the street where people specifically show up to be rude…)
Anyway, as far as the kids go, they are a hockey family~ the kids probably really liked it, how many kids get a chance to do something like that.?
We all should become thicker skinned and more civil! :-)
