Day 14: Federal Employees Held Hostage
In yesterday’s post, I wondered just who those 1 in 10 are who think Congress is doing a good job. Well, a couple-thousand of them showed up on the Mall yesterday for something they called a “Million Vet March on the Memorials.” Unsurprising that their math skills are wanting. Ted Cruz was there, as was Sarah Palin. And some clown from a wacko group called “Freedom Watch” called on the President to “put the Quran down” and “come out with his hands up.” More proof that many of these Tea Partiers are delusional and potentially violent. What they see when they look at the world is...well, I’m betting it looks a lot like the old pulp magazine cover above. Nice to see a U.S. Senator there pandering to them as well. And, yes, if the government ever reopens, then some dedicated federal employees will be able to clean up the mess they left at the World War II Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and in front of the White House.
