ALBERT PUJOLS & TONY LA RUSSA WILL ATTEND BECK "RESTORING HONOR" RALLY
Two Cardinal greats will join Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin this weekend.
American patriots and baseball icons Albert Pujols and Cardinal’s Manager Tony La Russa will attend Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally this weekend in Washington DC. This was a bold step for these American patriots.
The Post-Dispatch reported:
Cardinals first baseman and three-time NL Most Valuable Player Albert Pujols will be among several honorees at a highly publicized and potentially politically charged Saturday morning rally expected to draw more than 20,000 to The Mall.
Organized by Fox News talk show host Glenn Beck and featuring former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the “Restoring Honor” rally is scheduled to take place at the base of the Lincoln Memorial on the 47th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
Beck, who met Pujols at Busch Stadium before a June appearance at Chaifetz Arena, is promoting the event as an apolitical celebration of the First Amendment and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, scheduled to introduce Pujols, insisted Thursday that he and Pujols are attending only after receiving assurances that the event is not a thinly disguised political rally.
