I don't typically enjoy meshing politics with hockey, but this is kewl:
Palin, like McCain, is a conservative with a maverick streak who has shown a willingness to clash with others in her own party. A self-styled hockey mom and political reformer, she has been governor of her state less than two years.
Yes, that is indeed her on the establishmentarian magazine cover, above. "Hockey mom". Vice President. Even the NHL's marketing department couldn't screw this one up.
