So I was wondering, If Palin were a soccer mom rather than a hockey mom, would it have been brought up at all? I know a lot of folks don't view soccer as a very manly - or for that matter American- game. In fact, I've heard that boys who play soccer are often referred to as "lawn fairies". And soccer is so damned Euro, which is almost synonymous with liberal

Hockey, on the other hand, is a pretty rough game, more in keeping with the "Sarah Barracuda" image, and more American, or at least North American.

I'm also wondering if any of her kids played or play soccer and the McCain campaign made a decision to go with the hockey story and try to sweep the soccer angle under the rug.

If true, you have to ask yourself, why do the republicans hate soccer?

Sorry, no link.

Why am I not shocked by the complete lack of response from the cons? The silence is deafening.
