Pitney on Hockey Moms

Professor Pitney was recently quoted in the Chicago Tribune about Sarah Palin’s image as a “Hockey Mom.” He speaks to the image she is trying to project by referring to herself as such.

 “It’s about combining toughness with femininity,” said John Pitney Jr., a political scientist with Claremont McKenna College in California. “Gentle is not a word people associate with hockey.”
