Palin Met With Boos at Flyers' Opener  —  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.  Ed Snider, owner of the Flyers, had her introduced to the crowd more as a hockey mom …

Booed on the ice  —  It's hard to blame Sarah Palin for her booing on the ice in Philadelphia this evening.  It's almost a truism of politics that if you send a pol to a sporting event, he's going to get booed.  Politicians, as a class, aren't all that popular, and it's what sports fans do.

Palin Drops Puck at Flyer's Game Receives Mixed Reaction  —  Sarah Palin has become known as “The Most Famous Hockey Mom in America” for her constant referral to herself on the stump as “just a hockey mom.”  This evening, she met that title head on by dropping the first puck …

Glenn Reynolds / Pajamas Media:
NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE?  So we've had nearly 8 years of lefty assassination fantasies about George W. Bush, and Bill Ayers' bombing campaign is explained away as a consequence of him having just felt so strongly about social justice, but a few people yell things at McCain rallies and suddenly it's …

Ryan Cormier / Pulp Culture:
The Boo Birds  —  So, how did Philadelphia Flyers fans greet Sarah Palin, who was on hand tonight for the ceremonial puck-drop?  —  Watching on Comcast, it seemed like there was an avalanche of boos when she walked out — boos that were almost immediately drowned out by blaring, bombastic music.
The Politico:
What impact will the finding that Sarah Palin “abused her authority” have on the campaign?  —  As one who was a victim of violence and hate during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, I am deeply disturbed by the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign.

Private sector loans, not Fannie or Freddie, triggered crisis  —  WASHINGTON — As the economy worsens and Election Day approaches, a conservative campaign that blames the global financial crisis on a government push to make housing more affordable to lower-class Americans has taken off on talk radio and e-mail.
Frank Rich / New York Times:
The Terrorist Barack Hussein Obama  —  IF you think way back to the start of this marathon campaign, back when it seemed preposterous that any black man could be a serious presidential contender, then you remember the biggest fear about Barack Obama: a crazy person might take a shot at him.

This could be the game changer  —  Someone with the unlikely name of Molotov Mitchell has produced a 10 minute and 52 second video [watch it below] that could well change the terms of the election — if enough people watch it.  Illuminati Productions has posted it to YouTube.
The Politico:
Exclusive: McCain to unveil more economic policies  —  As part of a plan to reinvigorate his flagging campaign, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is considering additional economic measures aimed directly at the middle class that are likely to be rolled out this week, campaign officials said.
Andy McCarthy / The Corner:
Did Obama Write “Dreams from My Father” ... Or Did Ayers?  —  There has been speculation about this which I've ignored, no doubt because there are enough policy reasons to oppose Barack Obama and I don't want to feed into what sounds, at first blush, like Vince Fosteresque paranoia.
