There's nothing like the deaths of thousands of your fellow Americans and an anniversary that has become near-holy in this country for...making some quick ca$h!!!
Yesterday, on the anniversary of 9/11, total class acts Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin held a commemoration of the tragedy in Alaska--and they only asked for $65-$200 per person.
And what's a more American way to celebrate than to get yer drink on? Tickets were allocated to separate 'wet' and 'dry' sections so if attendees felt that such a somber moment was getting a little too somber, they could lighten up with a beer.
American beer only, I'm sure!
And hats off too to Ticketmaster for not bowing to the shifting winds of what's considered classy versus tacky, and slapping nearly a ten dollar surcharge on each ticket. Hey, if Imam Glenn can make some dough off of the deaths of nearly four thousand Americans, why not Ticketmaster too?
As Sarah Proud and Dumb stated on her Facebook page:
'Palin declared there is “no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will ‘never forget’” at the pricey event.'
Just make sure you 'never forget' your wallet!
Way to stay classy, Republitards.
