Sarah Palin To Gov't

Stop Using Vets As Political Pawns...

Cuz They're My Pawns

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.

The CIA plants at TMZ love this game. They post a video that completely contradicts the story and headline. All the comments react to the suggestions in the story despite the video evidence that the story is made up.

I am no supporter of Palin, but instead of TMZ taking time to report on the vets taking the barricades down which was positive, they make up a story about 1 person who was there to distort the whole issue.

I won't grow up    

This such a typical story written by a typical left wing organization sucking at the typical Hollywood tit.

I guess if TMZ didn't suckle at the Hollywood tit of liberalism they wouldn't get the cooperation they need to publish all the propaganda they lay on us.

Loved that the vets returned the barrycades back to the Spite House. Obama closed the memorials because he hates America and it's veterans. No other president has ever closed the memorials during a shutdown. Obama you are a piece of crap communist.

I don't see Obama helping the vets. Nancy P. Marching with the illegals. Obama opened that and didn't open the memorial. Look who's calling the kettle black.

The government lets illegal aliens protest at the site with no problem, but when the 80 vets showed up the government brought out guard in riot gear to try and stop them. Must be some tough 80 year old.

Shouldn't they arrest illegals who gather together in one spot cause they're in the country illegally? Kinda like a roach motel.

This woman just cant stop being stupid! When she criticized this administration for keeping Camp David open, she didn't stop to think that if she were president right not Camp David would still remain open.

I listened to the clip TMZ. No where did she say or even insinuate that that she was using the Vets as pawns. Nor did she use them as pawns. She was there helping them get into their Memorial. Unlike you, she has guts. You asshats wouldn't have the cojones to protest your hero Obama.

She's baaaack    

She had some bad face work done. She just keeps popping up like a bad penny doesn't she? What a hack. Does she have any idea that Camp David is technically a military installation and it employs the very "vets" she's talking about? Stupid bitch. I'll bet if she had been VP (there is a God) her skank ass would be lounging there right about now.
