Assistant Quote of the Day

"Cantor has demonstrated a remarkable ability to combine complete ignorance of practically every major issue with the unctuous personality of a third-string maitre d’ at a fourth-string steakhouse."

-- Charles Pierce in a hilariously brilliant must-read post for Esquire

For his part, Taibbi is going to town on the fact that the usual far-right blowhards like Rush Limbaugh are losing their shit over both how troublesome the Occupy Wall Street movement has been to contain and destroy -- and how it's now forcing even the Eric Cantors of the world to kiss its collective ass. Limbaugh and his ilk are doing everything in their power to demonize this movement -- and the reality is that it's not working one bit.

Charlie Pierce is one of the most underrated writers (comedians?) currently working. Although his latest Esquire gig certainly rectifies that quite a bit.

Far right bomb throwers are demonizing OWS in the same fashion as the far left demonized the tea party.

Did you see a ows protester exposed himself to children...so of course they are all pedophiles just as one asshole with a racist sign makes all the tea party people racist?

I'm so sick of fucking all of it. Just like the tea party, most of the people at these protests are decent human beings trying to change the government.

They should be respected as such.
