Hockey fans mixed on hockey mom

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was in Philadelphia on Saturday night to drop the ceremonial puck before the Flyers game.

When Palin and her two daughters were announced, they got the traditional Philly welcome … she was booed. Read AP’s story here.

    I think it’s so cool that you are able to state your thoughts politically and keep your job. I’ve had so many things I’ve wanted to say this election season, but I’ve had to bite my tongue because I want to keep my job for now.

    I never knew I was so politically minded until I’d been not allowed to share my thoughts.
