The Seattle Seahawks have a large fan-base in its neighbor to the North, including Mr. and Mrs. Palin.

The Seattle Seahawks have a large fan-base in its neighbor to the North, including Mr. and Mrs. Palin.

Not even 12 hours ago we posted our thoughts on Sarah Palin jogging through the streets wearing a Donovan McNabb Eagles jersey in an attempt, we presume, to court votes in Pennsylvania and commiserate with the team that fell to Obama’s Bears on Monday night.  Though we thought it was shamelessly political, we at least understood and respected the McCaign’s appreciation of the importance people place on their football teams.

What we can’t tolerate , however, is hypocrisy.  We speculated that Palin would be a Seahawks fan since many in Alaska are.  We didn’t expect that such an outrageous, inconsequential claim would be verified by a lazy google search that turned up a two week old article from Sports Northwest Magazine.  In that article Seth Kolloen quotes Todd Palin confirming that he and his wife are in fact Seattle Seahawks fans as well as members of the Seahawkers, the team’s official fan club.

It’s not that Sarah Palin went jogging that’s news to us, as it is to some others.  It’s what she was wearing: a Donovan McNabb #5 Eagles home jersey.  We’re not sure when the footage was taken, but the Eagles lost a close one to the Bears last night at Soldier Field and the choice of a McNabb jersey is, for reasons I can’t really articulate, a statement.
