  •  You all are worrying about clothes. (3+ / 0-)

    I'm noticing that Mom is holding her by the shoulders.

    Maybe that's for reassurance. Maybe not.

    The rest of the kids look miserable as well.

    Since Dad's smiling, I'm assuming it's not because he's getting jeered at.

    So...fear? Of the situation or Mom and Dad?

    Sarah Palin lost me early in the campaign when she agreed to toss out a hockey puck for, I believe, a New York game.

    She was told that this was a tough crowd and they might boo her.

    "Oh, don't worry. I'll take Piper out there with me. They won't boo a little girl."

    Yes, this creature thought it was fine to use her ten-year old as a shield.

    Of course, the crowd booed. And I wonder what it did to that little girl, standing there in front of hundreds of people booing her mother. She looked totally bewildered.

    I'm sure Palin never gave it a thought.

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

      got all pretend huffy and was going "I can't believe they would boo Piper!" As if she didn't know who they were really booing. Typical for her.
