Sarah Palin Slams Congress For Using Veterans as "Pawns," Poses With Veterans

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Sarah Palin is slamming the U.S. government for using our American war heroes as “political pawns” in the current standoff over the federal budget.

In vintage Palin fashion, however, she is sort of doing the same thing.

Palin led a big rally in Washington to protest the government shutdown that has closed national monuments to visitors, calling such closures "shameful."

The 2008 Republican V.P. nominee feels Congress is using the veterans' plight to play on the sympathies of the American public. Not a bad point.

Political leanings aside, you can at least see why someone would say that ... but Palin was flanked by vets at her attention-grabbing stunt at the WWII memorial.

Pretty much the definition of irony. Good dig at Joe Biden, though.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
