Sarah Palin's baseball loyalties depend on where she's talking, apparently.
Last week in Florida, the Republican vice presidential candidate talked up the Tampa Bay Rays. Tonight, in New Hampshire, she was fired up for the Boston Red Sox.
"I am looking forward to watching the debate tonight right here in Red Sox Nation," she told a big crowd in Salem. "...Red Sox fans know how to turn an underdog into a victor, and that's exactly what you can help us do on Nov. 4th."
The only hitch: The Rays lead the Red Sox three games to one in the American League championship series, so it takes quite the political gymnastics to root for both at the same time.
