Palin, Cruz Speak at WWII Vet Rally

They might be 50 years too young for a World War II veterans rally, but that didn’t stop Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin. The Tea Party darlings spoke Sunday at a Washington D.C. rally to reopen the World War II memorial, calling on Congress and the president to not politicize a memorial—atlhough they were the people who brought up politics. The protest originally had been organized by the Million Vet March, who claimed the memorial is being used as “political pawns in the ongoing government shutdown and budget crisis.” The protesters were stopped at the White House gates by Secret Service and U.S. Park Police—but no word if anyone realized the irony.
