Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin demonstrates at the World War II Memorial in Washington today to protest, as she said, how politicians used “your hard-earned tax money to barricade the memorials” during the federal government shutdown. She called it a “slimdown,” saying it only halted a small part of the “bloated” government. The Memorial has been closed to the public since the shutdown.
