Finally: The Occupy Wall Street commercial « Hot Air

These people sort of freak me out. They just give me a bad feeling every time I see something about them. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this before. Now I really do understand more about why my dad couldn’t stand “those DAMN HIPPIES”.

Via Dave Weigel, savor the irony of a spot that begins with a call for more serious political conversations and then instantly reverts to deathless leftist boilerplate about “economic justice” and “peace rather than militarization.” (Maybe Obama’s not the candidate for these people after all.) This is as close as we’ve gotten to an actual list of demands, and … we still ain’t close. But honestly, I don’t even want to see the demands anymore. All I want to see is the math.

The chump in the White House knows that perfectly well but he’s too gutless to break the bad news until after he’s safely re-elected or else the GOP would pull something close to 99 percent at the polls next year. That’s another grand White House fraud. Not the grandest, but it’s up there.   Read more here…
