Sarah Palin To Gov't

Stop Using Vets As Political Pawns...

Cuz They're My Pawns

10/14/2013 10:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

So if you feel a group is being slighted, just stay silent about it so you don't incur the wrath of TMZ (who exist SOLELY because they exploit celebrities for ad money). Got it.

She and Michelle Bachman are the two biggest idiots God ever made. Funny, I guess she missed the part where the republicans took all the veterans aide away a few months ago, and how this shutdown is effecting them and their medical care.

the gop=It's mostly bullchit and garbage, and none of the stuff I tell you is true.”

"Sure, we lie to start wars, hoot people in the face and wipe our wealthy butts with the Constitution. We ignore hurricane victims, war vets, the american people and terrorist threats and blame the results on the last Administration. Yeah, we take bribes and go on golfing trips paid for by lobbyists. Yes, we can't wait to get our grubby hands on your Social Security, shipped your jobs to China and run up another trillion dollar debt. make you take reduced benefits, no overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the the minute you go to collect it. The true is we don't care about you and your families. We vote for own raises, healthcare, and pension plans, and you are left to pay the bill. Yes we profited off of disaster, destabilized our currencies, and raised our cost of living.monopolized your freedom, stripped away education and liquidated your savings, Send your kids to wars base on lies and corp greed destroyed the middle class, and used your tax dollars to bailout are unending greed. the gop/tea KOCH party

If these elected officials want to keep their jobs, we must petition our government to make them actually do their jobs, or else vote them out of office immediately. Remember: they work for us. It's time they remember that.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people. Vote all of the the tea KOCH party Congress Out in Nov 2014

Sooooo, Obama isn't called out as "shameful" by TMZ for purposely locking WWII Veterans out of their *open air* memorials, but Palin is for defending them?

Hooray for Paliln, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul! They are speaking out when the majority of our once "free" press is terrified of retribution by this administration.

The IQ of the writing staff at TMZ, combined with the ever growing idiot population that post here are enough for me to believe that Radar Online is a better choice.

Have fun liberals.

Nice try trying to put a liberal spin on it TMZ. The problem is she has no political agenda, she's doing anything politcal (neither currently holding or running for an office). She's just there supporting the vets who defended this country. Too bad no current, office holding democrats can say that.
