Watch Sarah Palin get booed in Philadelphia before the Flyers’ hockey game tonight:

The AP reports it as “a mixture of boos and cheers.” The Wilmington News Journal describes it as “an avalanche of boos.”

Update

Palin had hoped her daughter would shield her from the boos. Fox reports, “The GOP Vice-Presidential nominee said at an earlier fundraiser that she would stop some of the booing from the rowdy Philadelphia fans by putting her seven year old daughter, Piper in a Flyers jersey. She said, ‘How dare they boo Piper!‘”
