Skatedaily reports that Republican presidential candidateJohn McCain’s running mate Sarah Palin is not down with skaters. She supported penalties for using skateboards on public or private property as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.
“ — after the expected opening of the $233,000 Wasilla Skate Park — skaters will be breaking the law if they use their skateboards, in-line skates, bicycles, scooters (or any other recreational, non-motorized wheeled device) on public or private property where signs are posted forbidding their use.”
Down with Palin!!!! Not so hasty my kick-push compatriots. While Palin has supported penalizing skaters, notice how that she does not mention Heely’s! YES!!!! Oh damn, wait a minute. Maybe she did. Damn. Well we still have Soaps.
