Who knew that Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin had WWII combat medals? Otherwise what would they be doing busting through barricades at the Veterans Memorial in Washington today? Actual veterans did show up in numbers the other day, but reports from today’s event described it as a few hundred Tea Partiers carrying barricades around town, finally dumping them in front of the White House (to be retrieved by currently unpaid park rangers). Senator Cruz accused the President of using veterans as political pawns. Really? Could he have even less shame than his spiritual mentor Joseph McCarthy?
