File under: "That went well."
NYT Lynn Zinser reports. "When Sarah Palin dropped the ceremonial first puck at the Flyers’ opener on Saturday night at the Wachovia Center, she was greeted by resounding (almost deafening) boos." AP says, "Palin was booed when she first stepped on the ice…Palin waved to the crowd and smiled as the reaction quickly turned to polite applause."
Palin gets some props here for maintaining her composure throughout.
UPDATE, on MSNBC this morning, pundit says: "a net positive on balance, shows she’s brave. I think it’s okay."
