The “Occupy Wall Street” crowd is thrilled. Why? For starters, because the leader of Venezuela who has a habit of imprisoning dissenters has offered his support for their cause — what ever that is. This means the protest can look forward to a visit from Chavez’s US liaison, Sean Penn, very soon.
Naturally Big Labor is involved. You can now also make a little money being a rent-a-protester (I wonder if there’s a bonus program for sh*#tting on police cars). Notice that the ad is dated last month (“spontaneous movement of the people” my a$$).
Let’s see, who else? Supporters of an accused Islamic terrorist are on board with the “occupy” movement. Nothing like the seal of approval of a military leader from the country that hangs gays and lashes & imprisons women for speaking out against censorship (no better way to prove her wrong, eh?).
The Communist Party USA is also down with OWS. Well count me in!
And of course with all those quality endorsements on board, the Democratic Party is also going all in.
When it comes down to the choice between the country being run exclusively by all of the above, or Goldman Sachs — I’ll choose the latter every single time.

Update: OWS Quote of the Day:
The free chow offered to protesters was boosting the crowd.
“People say they are here for the cause, but the real reason is the free food,” quipped Cameron, 26, of Jersey City.
“On my third day, they had smoked salmon with cream cheese. You know how much smoked salmon is a pound? Sixteen dollars. I eat better here than I do with my parents!”
