1. Demand For Obama To "Put The Quran Down" Just One Of Many Staggeringly Smart Things Said At Ted Cruz's Rally

As might be expected, Ted Cruz' Million Vet March on the Memorials — which drew hundreds of Tea Party conservatives to D.C. this weekend, some of whom were probably veterans — was a hotbed of intellectualism and rationality. Cruz, who headlined the event, which was organized in an attempt to use the closure of the WWII Memorial to shame the President, said, "Our veterans should be above politics. Enough games." Sarah Palin said something Sarah Palin-y. And Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch called for Americans to rise up and "demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up." And, just like that, America got a little bit better.
