Hockey Fans Hate The Hockey Mom

Sarah Palin has been riding that 'hockey mom" label from day one, what with her Joe Sixpack friends and dontchya know Middle Class America Values, gosh darnit.

But confronted with an arena packed full of actual hockey fans this weekend in Philadelphia, Palin wasn't exactly welcomed as one of their own.

True, these are Philadelpia fans, famous the world over for booing Santa Claus and pelting him with snowballs at one particularly ugly Eagles game.

Listen to that chorus, though, and tell us honestly that McCain's desperate fight for Pennsylvania is going to end well.
