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.

Umm ok...    

If by "pushing her own political agenda" you mean showing up to draw media coverage and show her support for how the Veterans are feeling...then yes, yes she is. The POTUS himself should have shown up for this!!

There's a problem here    

I don't care what that empty headed bimbo says because I can't stand the sound of her voice. It's like nails on a chalkboard.

Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz are the clowns of the GOP. Can't believe that Cruz shows up in front of the White House demanding Obama opens the War memorials when it was him and the Ted Party who pushed to shut down the government. Freakin losers!

This piece of hateful, malicious, dog excrement should just stay in Alaska. She should be questioned by law enforcement for inciting civil discord. Until she is handcuffed and kicked around she will not quit. She has nowhere to go but down, Americans see her as a bad joke that was unleashed on the population by John MCCain. This virus should be quarantined.

Your headline is incorrect. She did not LEAD this group. This was planned by Veterans groups not related to her at all. She happened to be in New Jersey on Saturday to stump for a republican and went down to DC because she was not far from DC. She had booked the New Jersey speech months ago long before this was even planned. We get you hate everything she stands for but If you would stick to the facts we would view TMZ's point more objectively.

Will this money monger ever go away. She is irrelevant to anything and everything. She's so full of
botox now she looks like a clown, but has always sounded like one.

This woman is the most stupid person in America. Interesting that some people actually listen to her trash talk.
