Although many Philadelphia Flyers fans cheered and clapped as Sarah Palin took to the ice at the Wachovia Center on Saturday night to drop the ceremonial puck kicking off this town’s NHL season, cialis sale cialis their warm reception was no match for the 90 seconds of sustained booing that rumbled through the arena, viagra sales advice drowning out most of the cheers in support of the Republican vice presidential nominee.

As Palin stepped onto the ice before a capacity crowd to drop the puck, joined by her daughters Willow and Piper, the arena’s jumbotron flashed a futile message to the thousands of notoriously harsh Philadelphia sports fans in attendance.

“Flyers fans, show Philadelphia’s class and welcome America’s #1 hockey mom, Sarah Palin,” the massive electronic message board pleaded, to little effect. Booing quickly erupted when the smiling candidate emerged from a tunnel leading onto the ice, muffling the applause of any Palin supporters in the crowd.

    This shouldn’t be a surprise, Elliot; Philly sports fans are notorious for this kind of behavior.

    Well, no one one suggested she be killed or that she was an Arab.

    Tim – with all due respect. I don’t believe that anyone at a McCain and/or Palin rally requested the death of Barack Obama.

    I was at a Palin rally last week, and while spirited, there was none of that – none, zero, zip, zilch, nada. Lots of calls for the campaign to get tough on the ACORN connection, but no threats of death or physical harm to anyone. We’ll leave those to the tolerant left discussions of Sarah Palin or James T Harris.

    Also, with the number of video cameras in attendance with the traveling press at these rallies there is absolutely no way that something like that would not have been on camera and being played 24/7 on MSNBC and CNN and such. Instead we have hearsay. The telephone game is alive and well in today’s politics.
