Sarah Palin To Gov't

Stop Using Vets As Political Pawns...

Cuz They're My Pawns

EXCLUSIVE

Sarah Palin needs a lesson in irony ... she's slamming government douchebags in DC for using American war heroes as "political pawns" ... while at the same time, using the vets for her own political agenda.

Palin led a big rally in DC yesterday ... protesting the government shutdown that has closed the monuments to visitors ... telling TMZ she thinks the closures are "shameful."

She thinks Congress is using the vets' plight to play on the sympathies of the American public ... which may be true ... but then she showed she's dirty enough to play that game, too.

The former Alaskan governor made a big show of staging her protest at the World War II memorial ... and posing with angry decorated veterans who like her brand of politics.

She also ripped on the Vice Prez.  Ya gotta listen ... it's classic Palin.

Why do people or the press give her any time, This women is an imbecile. She needs to fade away into the sunset. Just because the people of Alaska were dumb enough to elect her to be the governor, does not mean the other states have to tolerate her ignorance. Please stop printing information about her. No one cares except the ******ers. They also should be taken with a grain of salt. What an insult to the mentality to the American public!

I'd rather have Palin using the Vets as pawns, than having barack hussein obama keep food from them and their families' mouths. Or how president barry locks them out of their own memorial...

You have totally got this wrong! No politician organized this. Truckers that are tired of All the nonsense from both sides did. If you paid attention to FB and if mainstream media wasnt controlled by the White House. .. you would have seen the march on Washington. To protect the rights if WWII vets.

You guys are so lame when it comes to bowing down to this administration!

For most of you guys, I bet I have wine older with more character then your reports. Biased you are!

Anyone who thinks this shutdown was the fault of Obama or the Democrats should lose their right to vote.
