The fish rots from the head.

Vice President Joe Biden is proud of the National Park Service ranger who stood up to Rep. Randy Neugebauer at the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

On Thursday, video surfaced online of Neugebauer, a Texas Republican, angrily lecturing the ranger for setting up barricades to the memorial.

“I’m proud of you,” Biden said, according to his office’s Twitter account, revealing that the vice president had called the ranger to thank her for her service.

The ranger responded by saying that he’s “not ashamed” to have blocked veterans who flew across the country just to visit their memorial, which is ordinarily unmanned and open 24/7.

Of course the ranger isn’t ashamed. He’s just following orders. The Obama administration has managed to turn even the National Park Service into an arm of the DNC.
