Well, after all it’s NASCAR, which has never been a bastion of liberal pride…
Michelle Obama and Jill Biden were booed at NASCAR’s season finale at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday.
The appearance was part of an initiative to honor military troops and families. The first lady and vice president’s wife also served as grand marshals for the big race.
At the beginning of the race, an announcer introduced the two women, who were met with a loud combination of both cheers and boos.
This is hardly the first time the first and second lady have been booed at a sporting event. Their appearance at World Series games in both 2009 and2011 were met with a less-than-warm welcome.

– In a performance guaranteed to raise some eyebrows in Delaware and beyond, Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell said at a senatorial debate last night that she strongly supports “the separation of speech and thought.”
“To tell you the truth, I don’t know if there’s anything about that in the Constitution,” she added. “In the version of the Constitution that I read, Big Bird didn’t mention it.”
Ms. O’Donnell seemed stumped when the moderator asked whether there were any Supreme Court decisions she disagreed with, finally blurting out, “Ali v. Frazier.”
Her halting answers to many of the questions made some wonder why she had not written answers on her hand as her role model Sarah Palin has been known to do, but Ms. O’Donnell offered this explanation: “As you know, I believe it’s immoral to use your hand to help yourself.”
At the conclusion of the debate, Ms. O’Donnell pronounced herself pleased with her performance, saying that she would spend the next week concentrating on her Halloween costume: “I’m going as a qualified candidate.”
Elsewhere, the Texas Rangers advanced to the World Series, proving that once George W. Bush goes away things get better
