Some questions of the day:

Will Russ Feingold have a reunion with his former staffer at the Occupy Wall Street protest?  And why did the former staffer just turn his Twitter account private?

Madison, Wisconsin progressives are traveling to D.C. for this weekend’s protests, what possibly could go wrong?

How is it that the 1% now are calling themselvest the 99%?

How horrible is Nicole Wallace and who is she supporting for president?

The McCain campaign sure was full of self-serving backstabbers.

Ha. So basically Nicole Wallace wanted to make stuff up about Palin but didn’t want to be sued, so she labeled it fiction. I guess that makes her marginally smarter than McGinnis.

It would be cool if Feingold puts his money where his mouth is and asks the OWS to vote for him in a primary challenge to BO.

About that Nicolle Wallace interview…..

Isn’t it de rigueur to put in the front of a novel that “the characters in this book are fiction, and any resemblance to real persons is coincidental” or some such disclaimer, to avoid liability – both of the author and the publisher?

If so, she blew it – big time. She admitted that she based a character on someone real. And that she is on the record as not friendly toward her, at best.

Liability? Hit piece? Female Joe McGinniss?

Do the Occupy Wall Street protester have a diversity problem ?

The opponents of this movement are using the demands posted in this forum as the official lists. And some of these lists regardless of how right or wrong are extreme points of view and will only hurt our cause by making us look like extremist nut jobs.

“Top McCain ’08 adviser Charlie Black: ‘I never heard any such discussions [about Palin]. There were no discussions…”!/ByronYork/status/121672305515565057 \

“Charlie Black, who was McCain’s top campaign adviser in the 2008 race. “I never heard any such discussions,” Black told me. “There were no discussions like that with McCain, or I think I would have known about them. That doesn’t mean some subset of the senior staff might have talked to each other about it.”

As for the constitutional issues involved with blocking an elected vice-president from taking the oath of office, Black said, “Whoever was having that discussion, if there was one, didn’t have a good lawyer in the group.”

Okay. I looked up the book on

From the copyright page (publisher=Atria, div. of Simon and Schuster, Inc.):

“This book is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents either are products of the author’s imagination or are used fictionally. Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental. (my emphasis)

Yep. She blew it. She is in it deep now!

So sad. Too bad. Now we know for certain it was NOT Sarah Palin that was the vapid, empty-headed, narcissistic one. As for your being “mentally ill” – that, Nicolle, is still TBD.

Well, which is it? The disclaimer in the book or the words in quotes from the author in Time magazine? Can you have it both ways or is another law suit due?

Prof. Jacobson:

The (less than 1%) are trying to call themselves the 99% in order to (consciously or subconsciously) invoke the “silent majority” ideals of the 1980s.

My guess is that most of the idiots in the #OccupyWallSteet protest are just old enough to have heard the phrase “silent majority” but don’t actually have a clue what it means or meant at the time it was coined by the social conservative movement. Yet it is subtly influencing their language choices and the posture of the movement.

In short, they’re calling themselves the “99%” in order to say that they’re representative of the nation at large, which we ALL know is not only a blatant lie, but a poor one at that.

Said Wallace: “What if somebody who was ill-equipped for the office were to ascend to the presidency or vice presidency?

Do you suppose she realizes that that situation hasn’t been a hypothetical one for the past thirty-two months? (Not that I’m counting, of course).

Apparently Sarah Palin just announced she isn’t running on the Mark Levin Show.

For reasons I won’t state -Wallace is suffering from Primeval Fecundity Anger.

Something just came to mind as I was reading one of these stories about the hippies in NYC. I was reading an interview with some kid and he was bemoaning how he is unemployed and how there is to much corportism or something and he wants to destroy companies ….does anyone else see the problem here

2008 was the election between the “evil of two lessers.” We got the worst, but the other guy was no prize either.

I shutter to imagine exactly what a McCain Presidency would have been like and how it would have contorted the Republican Party into something completely unrecognizable.

I have to say that given the number of malcontents coming from John McCain’s campaign staff that I’m happy to say that ultimately I didn’t help put any of these folks in a position of authority.
