It would be interesting to see just how long she’d be content to stay put in your arms or lap.

Neither Sen. Rafael (Ted) Cruz nor Sarah Palin are particularly good about details, but they need a basic history lesson regarding the World War II memorial. It’s true that this is “the peoples’ memorial” and that is because it was built with taxpayers’ funds. It has also been considered advisable that some provision be made to maintain the memorial, to wash off the pigeon flop and graffitti, and to fence the memorial to keep people like Rafael and Sarah from climbing on it for recreation. Rafael and Sarah believe in the “free lunch” philosophy and think that memorials build themselves and maintain themselves out of thin air. If Rafael and Sarah truly believe themselves, the memorial should have been built with private funds, and maintained with private funds also. Of course, that would mean that visitors would have to pay admission fees to visit the memorial, and it might not look so shiny if admission fees were inadequate, and it might close altogether if people lost interest in it. As a veteran, I find this repugnant.
