I never talk politics here on the blog, but this is hockey related. I came across this post from 538.com (538 is the total number of Electoral College members) which argues that we shouldn't think of Sarah Palin as a hockey mom so much as a checking line agitator. The analogy is that her job is to mix things up and rile both the opposition and her own team. Even if she cross a line now and then-the aggressor tends to benefit most often in hockey--and perhaps in politics too.
Is Sarah Palin the Tyson Nash of Politics?
