Boo!

Apparently they were booing Sarah Palin before the producers urged everyone to cheer.

Take a listen …

Some would argue it’s in bad spirit to boo at something like this. I disagree. Sarah Palin is as destructive a political force as we’ve had in this country since … since … since—I’m not even sure. Her comments have been racist and xenophobic, and I’d feel no reason to applaud merely because her “star” daughter is on some dance program.

  1. I can’t think of anything overtly racist that Palin has said, but she did support Dr. Laura Schlesinger after Schlesinger said, and I’ll paraphrase: “If you are so sensitive about people being racist, then you shouldn’t have married someone outside of your race.” This doesn’t make Palin racist, but it’s not exactly showing the kind of racial awareness and compassion we should expect of our public political figures.
