NY Times Tells Palin to Puck Off

The New York Times is objecting to Sarah Palin having dropped the puck at last night's Philadelphia Flyers-New York Rangers game. Their hockey writer, Lynn Zinser, writes, "the question has been raised....whether to appearance was appropriate at a sports event like this." (

Funny, I don't recall the NYT or any others in the liberal media questioning the propriety of John Kerry throwing out the first pitch the week of the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. Kerry threw out the first pitch at a Red Sox-Yankees game on July 25, 2004. ( It was at this game that Kerry said his favorite Red Sox player was "Manny Ortez." Kerry managed to appoxy David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez.

The only objections the NYT has to Sarah Palin dropping the first puck is that she is Sarah Palin and that she is a conservative Republican.
