Clueless conservatives on occupy Wall Street
It's fun to watch conservatives squirm about this growing phenomenon, for it challenges their denial to its greedy and inhumane core. This fine article by Douglass Rushkoff gets it: Think Occupy Wall St. Is a Phase? You Don't Get It. Also see this clip from Real Time with Bill Maher. P. J. O'Rourke is flummoxed by those dirty hippies with their bongo drums when Alan Grayson sets him straight in under a minute. It is ludicrous to claim that this is pitting Americans against fellow Americans. It is 99% of Americans asking that the 1% of criminal Americans be held accountable for their crimes.
