This just in:
"WASHINGTON, October 13, 2013 – UPDATED: Thousands of protesters have arrived at the World War II memorial this morning to protest the closure of the memorials during the government shut down. "
Note: This vague number of thousand or thousands is unconfirmed and may be a Fox News headcount.
2nd Note: Protestors seem oblivious that all Memorials were shut down by the Republican House but they did realize that the one they are protesting is also closed down.
"The protestors have removed the barriers and have entered the monument. "
Note: They appear to be unaware that when the Republican House closed it, this means it is closed.
"Senators Mike Lee - Utah and Ted Cruz - Texas as well as Sarah Palin were among the crowd that chanted “Tear down these walls” and sang patriotic songs according to local news coverage from WTOP, as the barriers were removed."
Note: Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz seem also to not realize they closed down the Monuments. Is there no one in the crowd that can update them on what they closed? Maybe Sara Palin? Nevermind. Do they know they can tear down that wall by not shutting down the country and simply passing the budget? Someone in the crowd should inform them. I hope so anyway as this is embarrassing.
"About 15 tractor trailer trucks from the Ride for the Constitution protest, which took place two days ago, but mostly turned out to be a non-event, have arrived at the memorial protest to lend their support to the veterans. The truckers came down 17th street honking their horns while heading toward the Mall. Their forward progress was blocked by police barricades."
Note: The police barricaded them as the truckers threatened to block off the streets. It is lucky they did as 15 trucks on a road is almost as many as I pass going to Costco and I know how I feel when I see them slowing down. I believe this was an effort by police to protect the little group of truckers from the commuter anger.
"The police were able to reassemble the barricades and push the protestor back away from the White House gates."
Note: Wait a minute? They went to the White House to protest? I would guess no one in that particular crowd has the mental capacity to clue in Mike Lee or Cruz.
"Some of the veterans are directing the assembled group to the Capitol building to continue the protest."
Note: Oh hell - Hope springs eternal. Will Cruz and Mike Lee be protesting themselves with them? Will they shout "Tear Down This Wall" to their fellow Republican House Members or will they shout it into a mirror? Has Palin distanced herself from them and raced over to be with the clueless crowd outside the White House protesting Obama? Odds are there has been a breakdown in communication.
Note: Finally do 15 truckers get a lunch discount at the House of Pancakes if they arrive as a group?
To be continued...I'm sure.
