We've finally uncovered Sarah Palin's dirty secret. She
hated the Minnesota North Stars.
Deadspin unearthed this gem of Palin, then known as Sarah Heath, doing the sports report for KTUU-TV in Anchorage, Alaska. If you forward to the 2:09 mark of the video, Palin unloads into the North Stars who were the NHL's worst team in 1987-88 but were one of the league's most penalized squads:
So with all her other issues that have been brought up, Palin now must accept the nomination as the Republic Party's candidate with her intolerance for rough and tumble left winger Basil McRae in front of a hostile group of Minnesota hockey fans in Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn.
We can't help but wonder if her anti-Richard Zemlak stance was fully disclosed to John McCain's people when they initially approached her for the position.
