Cashing in on 9/11

Where most people see the anniversary of a tragedy, Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin see a fanatastic money-making opportunity.

The Anchorage Daily News reports
Crowd magnets Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are teaming up again, this time on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

"We can count on Glenn to make the night interesting and inspiring, and I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will 'never forget,' " Palin wrote of the conservative commentator on her Facebook page. "Hope to see you there!"

But unlike their free August rally at the National Mall, Saturday's event in Anchorage will come with a hefty price.

Tickets range from $73.75 to a high of $225. The priciest tickets cover seats up front and a "meet and greet" at the Dena'ina Civic and Convention Center, where the event is being held.
Yep, separating "patriots who will 'never forget'" from their hard-earned $73.75 to $225, that's the way Beck and Palin plan to "restore honor" to the country.
