WONKETTE ON THE STREETS  7:21 am September 27, 2011

Michael Moore and the Granny Peace Squad Occupy Wall Street

by Riley Waggaman

Granny Peace Squad!Hello friends! Your Occupy Wall Street correspondent spent the day familiarizing himself with the park-dwelling lifestyle (pro tip: poop at McDonald’s, not in your pants) and meeting the treacherous peaceniks that he will be spending an entire week with. Did you know that these “disorganized, godless pixies” are actually extremely intelligent and highly organized, and that they have a kitchen that serves three meals a day and a medical station that offers free medical assistance and a library with free book-learnin’? (A place where you can borrow books for reading, but no Netflix overnight shipping depot? Ha ha, just another example of “pantomime progressivism”!) Anyway, nobody got arrested today (as of 8:30pm), but there were lots of hot celebrities such as Michael Moore. And the Granny Peace Squad came and helped ruin America with us. You probably already know about the Granny Peace Squad, but are you familiar with Michael Moore? He is an old woman who wears a trashbag and talks smack about the 5-0. Videos after the jump!

Here are some righteous elders (the self-described “Granny Peace Squad”) telling a Fox News teevee crew that they’re not afraid of getting curb-stomped by the cops, even though they’re very fragile:

Oh right, and then Michael Moore showed up. And a bunch of cops. And everyone went bonkers:

Okay our computer is about to explode, from lack of batteries, so we will sign off for now. During the night hours before Tuesday dawn, we will document the process known as “sleeping on your mother’s yoga mat in a park full of Bohemians.”

Hooray for them! I hope that no one breaks a hip.

themcwow September 27, 2011 at 1:39 pm

I knew it!

Terry September 27, 2011 at 9:19 am

They also have power over the cops that no one else has. They're sweet little old ladies. Any manhandling or even harsh language looks like severe abuse. When the cops show up, the ladies should walk right up to them.

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 9:21 am

They should bake them cookies, or brownies, but only the special brownies.

jus_wonderin September 27, 2011 at 10:32 am

Someone should take that iconic protest photograph of a Granny putting Flour in a Cops gun.

tessiee September 27, 2011 at 9:28 pm

Might be easier if she used a flower instead of flour.

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 10:28 pm

I can see it, now, a granny slowly and carefully pouring a bag of Pillsbury down the barrel of a gun.

ProudLibunatic September 28, 2011 at 12:18 am

Have you ever seen the "Raging Grannies?" They are so lovable and charming, and all about being positive.
Something to look forward to.

snoopyfan2010 September 27, 2011 at 7:27 am

Snoopy got the second comment!

baconzgood September 27, 2011 at 8:43 am

That's not really a snark. True but not a snark.

snoopyfan2010 September 27, 2011 at 8:09 pm

Yes, I know. I'm not good at snark. This is an attempt to up my p score.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 8:53 pm

Is *that* how it works? Well, fuck that, I'm not getting out of bed early just to get a bigger p-ness.

snoopyfan2010 September 27, 2011 at 9:43 pm

Getting out, getting in, either one.

Tommmcattt September 27, 2011 at 11:44 am

Upfist for the retro-hipster meta-comment. So uncool that it is awesome, IMHO.

snoopyfan2010 September 27, 2011 at 8:10 pm

Right back at you Tommy-boy.

johnnyzhivago September 27, 2011 at 7:30 am

Riley, we saw you on the morning news next to Moore, at least I think it was you!

DashboardBuddha September 27, 2011 at 8:13 am

This can be verified if someone saw a Panting Beirbart lurking nearby.

iburl September 27, 2011 at 8:19 am

or a de-pantsing Breitbart

DashboardBuddha September 27, 2011 at 8:56 am

like April showers bring May flowers, panting Briebarts bring de-pantsing Brietbarts.

Ok…I just made myself a little sick.

NYNYNYjr September 27, 2011 at 3:49 pm

Whan that Aprill, with his shoures soote
The panting Breitbart hath perced to the roote

Terry September 27, 2011 at 9:20 am

He needs to be careful. Moore's gravitational pull could bring Riley into orbit.

Nostrildamus September 27, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Riley: avoid the black hole at all cost.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 8:55 pm

That's Sarah Palin, right? Riley, you'll be fine if you tie a pair of moose antlers to your behind. ttommyunger says we can use them to pull you to safety.

GunToting[Redacted] September 27, 2011 at 10:45 am

I think I saw Riley on the Countdown programme.

sezme September 27, 2011 at 1:29 pm

I think I saw Riley at the food court, eating a sandwich! Oh sorry, that was Elvis. Still, it's nice to see Riley here again.

JerkCade September 27, 2011 at 1:44 pm

I saw Goody Riley dancin' with the Devil!!

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 27, 2011 at 2:20 pm

I saw Riley drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's
His hair was perfect

NYNYNYjr September 27, 2011 at 3:53 pm

I picked up my bag, I went looking for a place to hide
When I saw Riley and the Devil walking side by side
They were going to McDonalds to poop

simplyblue7 September 27, 2011 at 7:35 am

can we confirm you used an apple computer for this post?

Ken Layne September 27, 2011 at 11:52 am

Well duh, because that stock trader in the NYT said Apple is a monopoly — so all computers are Apple computers.

simplyblue7 September 27, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I'm just shaking my head…at how slow this damn Dell at work took to load this site.

MissusBarry September 27, 2011 at 7:38 am

I wish I had a grandma like that. Alas, I am grandma-less. And my parents are republicans. *Head sags in shame.*

Barb September 27, 2011 at 7:39 am

Awww, here's a hug and a butterscotch. Feel better sweetie?

MissusBarry September 27, 2011 at 7:42 am

Thanks, Barb! They're not bad people, they just haven't realized that by today's standards, Ike was a commie.

arihaya September 27, 2011 at 7:56 am

Ike was already a commie by 1950s Birchers' standards, duh

Lascauxcaveman September 27, 2011 at 11:44 am

So many olde people these days are Republican voters just due to a combination of inertia and ignorance. It's like brand loyalty; they've always chosen brand X over brand Y, and they're not about to change, even though the latest double-blind study shows that brand X causes cancer.

I've been chipping away over the last few years at my poor old mom, pointing out all the examples of her darling Reps savaging her old cloth-coat main street values and she's become quietly apolitical lately. I remember joking with my sister a few years ago "If we could only get her to stop voting," and I may have finally succeeded.

DashboardBuddha September 27, 2011 at 8:57 am

Big hugs here…but if it helps any, you can bring them up the best you can, but in the end, parents have to make their own choices.

MissusBarry September 27, 2011 at 9:38 am

Thanks, DBB! I've always lamented their lack of forward technological progress, but with all the god-awful things white septegenarians get into on the interwebs these days, perhaps I should count my lucky stars that they haven't figured out email or google. I do still have high hopes of teaching them how to check the missed call log on the cell phone I got them years ago, though, so they don't default to calling me and saying, "it rang and I couldn't find it in my jacket pocket fast enough, did you call?"

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 10:26 am

My 97-yo gramma just passed away back in July; she was a republican, but a Massachusetts Republican falls somewhere to the left of a Texas Democrat. 95-yo grampa just had a stroke and a heart attack a couple weeks ago but is hanging on like a cockroach; he voted Nader in 2000 so there ya go. I converted my dad from being a Republican about 20 years ago; with the passion of the converted, he now hates Repubs with the heat of a thousand supernovas. So there is always hope. My mom just votes how my dad tells her, she's old fashioned that way…

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:00 pm

Your family sounds like good people, Baldar.

Now, MY mother always said Hitler was a great man because he made the trains run on time. Even after I pointed out to her that her brown ass would have been on a one-way trip to Auschwitz, if Hitler ever got his hands on it.

OTOH, Dad was an unregenerate socialist feminist who kept us all from going insane living with the She-Devil.

tessiee September 27, 2011 at 9:35 pm

"MY mother always said Hitler was a great man because he made the trains run on time"

???
I thought that was Mussolini.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:38 pm

Given that the woman was batshit insane and in the habit of throwing knives and furniture, none of us was interested in discussing the issue.

Dashboard_Jesus September 28, 2011 at 2:10 am

your mom is brown? is it a scary dark brown or one o' those lovely, creamy kinda browns, y'know the ones that let ya 'pass' for bein' I-talian? (hey I thought Hitler loved the brown, ain't that the color of them Nazi brown shirts?)

PalinzADummy September 28, 2011 at 11:56 am

Let's put it this way: she wouldn't pass the brown-paper-bag test. Brown enough to be recognizably Of Teh Brown Peeplez. Dad was lighter in colour, so the sprogs all came out different shades of brown, which is how life is among Teh Cullud Peeplez.

I'm pretty sure the Nazis would not have been overly considerate of Mama's tender sensibilities.

Dashboard_Jesus September 28, 2011 at 2:07 am

awesome, BOTH of your parents deserve big hugs for that…"hates Repugs with the heat od a thousand supernovas" is a great state of being, keeps one warm and cozy during the cold months (years) too!

orygoon September 27, 2011 at 12:13 pm

They can't be all bad; after all, they raised YOU.

AxmxZ September 27, 2011 at 1:29 pm

I’m lucky, I have 3 grandparents like that. 1 grandparent wears a tricorne with tea bags dangling from it. Still, 3 out of 4. Yay!

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 8:56 pm

We'll still love you, MissusBarry. I can be your grandpa if you like. Or grandma, if you'd prefer.

x111e7thst September 27, 2011 at 7:39 am

Doesn't anyone down there know how to tap a streetlight for power to run a charging station? Go up to Tompkins Square Park, one of the gutter punks camping out there will show you how for $5.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 7:46 am

Riley, did the Granny Peace ladies tell you not to eat the brown acid?

finallyhappy September 27, 2011 at 7:47 am

I'm probably 15 years(10?) younger than the grannies- hopefully in 10 years, I 'll feel healthy enough to still be protesting. But sleeping in the park- no.

Buzz Feedback September 27, 2011 at 7:48 am

Michael Moore is there? What about Fonzie and his shark?

Spurning Beer September 27, 2011 at 7:50 am

The Occupiers need some sort of angle to draw more media attention, but what? Nudity? No, not with Michael Moore in the mix, or the grannies. They're too ambulatory for scooters, and explicitly nonviolent. Something with money, maybe. How about a toilet in a prominent place as a symbolic drop-box into which attendees and passer-by can drop dollar bills, with the proceeds to be donated to indigent medical care, or abortions or something?

Americans like money.

charlesdegoal September 27, 2011 at 8:13 am

How about throwing money on the floor of the NYSE. It's been done before and they have taken steps to prevent it, but be inventive!

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 8:29 am

I'm put in mind of the brilliant last scene from The Magic Christian.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQxL0O1lYvg

Ken Layne September 27, 2011 at 12:05 pm

Jesus, I've never *seen* The Magic Christian, somehow. I did read the Terry Southern book, but the movie looks wildly different than I imagined. It also sounds a lot like A Singular Man, the great/insane JP Donleavy novel.

Okay, I am done editing Riley for the afternoon, time to go watch this movie if it's on the Netflix.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 12:25 pm

It's worth the effort. Book was set in the US, movie in England; I read the book after seeing the film and liked the movie better (which is usually but not always the case for me).

Chet Kincaid September 27, 2011 at 12:42 pm

When I was In Junior High School in inner city Cleveland round about '72-'73, they were still showing movies in the auditorium at lunchtime, one reel a day. I vividly recall seeing that very final reel one of those lunch hours. I have no idea what the Cleveland school system was thinking (they weren't thinking, just slinging a reel of literal shit into a ghetto school), but it's hard to imagine that happening just 8 or 10 years later.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 1:36 pm

THAT is truly amazing. Obviously, no effort at pre-screening was made; "Hey, this oughta be ok to show, it's about Christians, right?"

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:02 pm

Upfist for Magic Christian!

Terry September 27, 2011 at 9:21 am

Just not those ugly assed giant puppets. I hate those things.

arihaya September 27, 2011 at 7:55 am

if the Grannies aren't coming with Rascals, misspelled signs and Gadsden Flags, our lamestream media aren't going to even notice it

hollywooddood September 27, 2011 at 7:56 am

Show us your tits, Michael Moore!

DashboardBuddha September 27, 2011 at 8:58 am

ugh

GunToting[Redacted] September 27, 2011 at 10:47 am

Do not want.

tessiee September 27, 2011 at 9:46 pm

As a general rule, when somebody has to unbuckle their belt to show you their tits, it's probably not a good thing.

MildMidwesterner September 27, 2011 at 8:04 am

"There were lots of hot celebrities such as Michael Moore."

"Hot" is not an adjective frequently associated with Michael Moore, unless it is purely a descriptor of his body temperature after climbing a set of stairs.

charlesdegoal September 27, 2011 at 8:07 am

In he sixties we used to go to demonstrations in the faint hope of getting laid. And it often happened! The girls were mostly Jewish and a lot more attractive than your grannies and Michael Moore, though to each his own. We Shall Overcome!

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 9:21 am

"The girls were mostly Jewish and a lot more attractive than your grannies"

Not sure how to break this to you, but those grannies are the very same Jewish girls you were trying to screw back in the 60s, Chuck.

Lascauxcaveman September 27, 2011 at 11:48 am

Still fighting the good fight, but maybe not putting out so much afterwards.

PhilippePetain September 27, 2011 at 2:59 pm

HA!

Ken Layne September 27, 2011 at 12:11 pm

I think it would take a combination of 50 literary agents and an LCD Soundsystem reunion and a Bravo-televised awards ceremony for "best cooking Tumblr" and "best Brooklyn knitting blog" and an N+1 hosted bar to get a crowd of hot educated young ladies to turn out in New York today. (This is also how to get the hot educated young men to leave their cable teevee apartment.)

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 12:23 pm

See, I don't know what any of that means. Guess I'll have to continue to settle for being the Sugar Daddy for the 30-yo naive chick from Omaha with daddy issues. Could be worse, I reckon.

ManchuCandidate September 27, 2011 at 8:08 am

Silly Riley. If they were extremely intelligent then they'd be selling junk bonds to pension funds, designing gold plated killbot weaponry to kill browns or making boner pills because that's what intelligent people do in US America. Of course if they were really stupid, they'd join the Teabaggers or end up on "reality" TeeVee.

charlesdegoal September 27, 2011 at 8:15 am

Survival of the filthiest, they call it.

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 8:13 am

I'd like to see the cops try, just try, and pepper spray these blue hairs and see the unholy public release against them. lol

BTW, can't we subway in some black-and-browns from Harlem and the Bronx and some hipsters in from Park Slope, or something? 'Cause I'm really wondering if those down there at the moment are mostly from outside the region or New Yorkers; whatever they are, the numbers need to grow and there is more than enough folks in the area to project greater (numerical) force.

FakaktaSouth September 27, 2011 at 9:20 am

If they do mace the fuck out of these tough old broads, somewhere a Republican debate has its next major applause line.

"Do you approve of tear gassing our senior protesters to the point of anaphylaxis?" "ROAR – CHOKE CHOKE CHOKE LET EM DIE!!!!!"

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 9:24 am

These fuckers are so sick they'd probably instinctively and reflexively cheer the crucifixtion of their Lord and Savior if given the chance.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 9:36 am

"Die, longhair liberal Jewboy hippie, die!!!1!!1"

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:05 pm

You know it.

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 9:57 am

I can be subwayed in from Harlem and my neighbour, the wonderful Miss Patricia, did yell at me , as I was leaving the other day, "What's up my nigga" does that help?

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:06 pm

That lovely olive complexion should certainly help.

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 9:13 pm

I was so proud to be called Nigga, it was a lovely moment.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:19 pm

I understand it's a term of endearment among the urbanz, Lizzie. A great compliment.

axmxz September 27, 2011 at 1:27 pm

The black-browns have way too much sense to be seen loitering with bored white kids in high-traffic tourist areas to demand a hodge-podge of ponies and unicorns they picked through facebook crowd-sourcing.

tessiee September 27, 2011 at 9:49 pm

"I'm really wondering if those down there at the moment are mostly from outside the region"

Outside agitators?

Nothingisamiss September 27, 2011 at 8:16 am

Riley! It's so good to see you! Try not to become too violent. I saw a clip of "you people" on Fox news and it looked like the dirty grannie hippies were RIOTING. The police with shields and pepper spray looked outnumbered and peaceful.

Yay Riley!

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 8:32 am

No doubt Fox has some stock Paris 1968 footage lying around that they can re-label as "Violent Commie Grannies" or something. Probably with the Stones' "Street Fighting Man" playing in the background.

ApplesauceRobot September 27, 2011 at 8:24 am

This thing needs The Clash's "White Riot" played loudly on a continuous loop.

BlueStateLibel September 27, 2011 at 8:26 am

Stay safe, Riley, although you're probably the safest you'll ever be from the caresses of Andrew Breitbart than ever – the smell of peace and justice in the air must be like kryptonite to him.

Goonemeritus September 27, 2011 at 8:38 am

I look forward to the Fox broadcast of the protest, I predict they will show footage of the Granny’s overturning police cruisers and setting fire to American flags with kittens soaked in gasoline.

Radiotherapy® September 27, 2011 at 8:46 am

Then, Steve Douchey will point out that this is how the Left always acts: using violent Alinsky techniques.

not that Dewey September 27, 2011 at 10:58 am

I heard (on FOX) that the Widow Alinski was one of the agitators.

tessiee September 27, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Don't forget the palm trees in the background!

baconzgood September 27, 2011 at 8:39 am

I wish those were my grandmas. Mine only macromed, baked pizzelles and were domestically abused by drunken irish men. (wiping dear from an eye) You just don't have Thanksgivings like that any more….

Terry September 27, 2011 at 9:32 am

I never knew my grandmothers. Both had hard lives in immigrant housing (a mill town tenement and a dirty coal mining village in the mountains), raising their families the best they could during the Depression. Mom's family gave thanks for the United Mine Workers at Grace every dinner and knew that every human should be treated with respect and not die on the job. Dad's family went through extreme poverty, years of unemployment with closed mills, and still held together and viewed school not only as a way out of the tenement but as a means becoming an Educated Man or Educated Woman, a goal in itself.

I thank God for my grandparents' strength and what they gave me via my folks and wish I could have known them.

baconzgood September 27, 2011 at 10:54 am

I was the first person in my family to go to a respected college and next to my sister the first one to get a Masters. I had trouble reading, and still can't spell or do grammer worth piss, as a child so it was very important that I learn. Funny, except for, math, science, and lit. I barely passed High School. I got a great score on my SAT's. Guess I just test (cheat) well.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:13 pm

Isn't that odd? I have mild dyslexia, which is why I'm such a nitpicker about spelling; although it mostly expresses itself in a terrible sense of direction and a complete inability to tell my right from my left (passengers in my car are always screaming "The OTHER left! The OTHER left!"). I've always done much better in tests than I thought I did, and I'll never understand why because the mere mention of testing causes me muscular cramps and bizarre ailments, all of which vanish mysteriously as soon as the test is over.

I wish I was you.

ProudLibunatic September 28, 2011 at 12:56 am

I also have a right/left thing. When I was learning square dancing in high school (my boyfriend was an awesome square dancer), the teacher had to mark my hands "L" and "R" with a big red magic marker. It was a disaster.

You are not alone!

Monsieur_Grumpe September 27, 2011 at 8:43 am

Thanks for doing this Mr. Waggaman. I smell a Pulitzer or maybe its poop. Either way, good job and stay safe. The Listen To Me Granny is kind of hot, are you hitting that?

johnnyzhivago September 27, 2011 at 8:46 am

Re: Grannies…

The two grannies around here – one listens to Beck/Fox and believes Obama is the reincarnation of Hitler – the other voted for Obama because she likes Michelle's fashion sense.

MozakiBlocks September 27, 2011 at 11:03 am

Keeping Michelle with two LLs as FLOTUS may indeed be what saves Barry.

And both of my grandmother's would have given the police "the what for and who with" but good.

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 8:49 am

Hmm…who the devil are the kidz into, these days. Justin Bieber. Nevermind that he's Canadian, get that little lesbian down there, stat, and find a camera. The rest will take care of itself. Oh, and add Snooki for good measure. Also.

starfanglednut September 27, 2011 at 8:57 am

"get that little lesbian down there" HaHaHaHaHa, he does make a perfect little baby dyke.

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 9:07 am

There is an entire site devoted to this:

Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber

horsedreamer_1 September 27, 2011 at 8:31 pm

Baby Stork!!!

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:15 pm

Yes, he does!

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 9:04 am

That Miley Cyrus has already pissed off her crazed fundamentalist dad by publicly supporting gay marriage, maybe she could support these protests as part of her rebellion too.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:14 pm

I think Justin Bieber might be a little young for this crowd.

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 10:26 pm

No, not to entertain this existing crowd (they'd eat him a live), just something to pull in some more warm bodies to make the crowd look bigger. You know, fillers/extras.

ProudLibunatic September 28, 2011 at 1:03 am

Dave Matthews Band would do the trick.
And Springsteen would bring a lot of (old) filler.

AlterNewt September 27, 2011 at 8:50 am

So far, I'm not yearning to be there.

Chillwaver September 27, 2011 at 8:55 am

Are they sending Chris Christie to sumo wrestle Moore?

LiveToServeYa September 27, 2011 at 9:00 am

Sweet muscular Jeebus, Riley, you're alive! Give 'em heck.

starfanglednut September 27, 2011 at 9:01 am

The Raging Grannies are also awesome.

Doktor Zoom September 27, 2011 at 11:41 am

Not all chapters are equally adept at YouTube Activizms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CQBKkTuPwA

One of the women in that vid is Kid Zoom's bubbe. When asked for comment, he said, "Wow. You were really brave to put that out there." Boy has a promising career in diplomacy, I'd say.

starfanglednut September 27, 2011 at 11:52 am

Oh dear. They're still awesome, tho. Does Zoomie's bubbe know this song?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxvQKZPb6Wo

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:21 pm

Oh, my.

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 9:06 am

Hopefully the cops won't be assaulting the peaceful protesters anymore because their superiors have reminded them that it's really bad for PR the wrong thing to do.

DashboardBuddha September 27, 2011 at 9:07 am

The granny in the picture looks like a sweetie. She has comma eyes.

CapnFatback September 27, 2011 at 9:22 am

And a semi-colon!

DashboardBuddha September 27, 2011 at 9:29 am

[rimshot]

Doktor Zoom September 27, 2011 at 11:42 am

My uncle had his semicolon removed. Now he has to punctuate into a rubber bag.

tessiee September 27, 2011 at 10:03 pm

Old joke:
Q: What's the difference between an electric typewriter and Ronnie Raygun?
A: The typewriter has a colon and a memory.

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 9:26 am

Certainly better than coma eyes, that's for damned sure.

CapnFatback September 27, 2011 at 9:12 am

they have a kitchen that serves three meals a day and a medical station that offers free medical assistance and a library with free book-learnin’?

Just as I suspected; the grannies are flooding Wall Street with copies of And Tango Makes Three to promote the socialist homo-granny-penguin agenda.

MrFizzy September 27, 2011 at 9:12 am

Well, at least they're doing something. My contribution is this post.

I heard Nancy Grace's nipples are as big as manhole covers; apparently she threw one out there before the cameras, knowing its her last best chance to stay alive on DWTS.

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 9:18 am

You know, I said in the other thread showing her in her dance dress that god help the audience present when she would experience a wardrobe malfunction, because she'd surely take out at least the front row with one of those things.

ttommyunger September 27, 2011 at 1:25 pm

I think the manhole reference was the fact that they had to slide her over one to get her back on her feet after she slipped and fell during rehearsal.

" actually extremely intelligent and highly organized, and that they have a kitchen that serves three meals a day and a medical station that offers free medical assistance"

meh, we did that in WI last winter.

OT but that Google Doodle on today's homepage sports granny-wallpaper like I haven't seen since I was trying to peel such stuff from my own house's walls (a job still unfinished). What this is supposed to signify, Google being a mere 'thirteen', is beyond me; although 1998 did see "That 70s show" making waves, as well as, um, "Oz."

NPR is not covering the protests 'coz it does "not involve large numbers of people, prominent people, a great disruption or an especially clear objective."

Time for a strategic wardrobe malfunction?

SorosBot September 27, 2011 at 9:26 am

And yet, none of the teabagger rallies had large numbers of people (hell, many were only in the double digites), prominent people, a great disruption or any objective beyond "we no like darkie in White House", and they got constant coverage.

Did Hendrix come out and play the Star Spangled Banner at sunrise this morning? Or was Sha Na Na still on stage?

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 9:39 am

I think it was Amy Winehouse (stumbling through a drunken-but-wickedly-soulful renndition of God Save the Queen, for some odd reason), while Nirvana was still on stage…

weejee September 27, 2011 at 10:28 am

Aren't they all playing in a band called the 27ers?

Negropolis September 27, 2011 at 10:22 pm

And, it's the best band in the afterlife, that's for sure.

Monsieur_Grumpe September 27, 2011 at 9:31 am

Do I sense a business opportunity here? Protests like Wisconsin and Occupy are probably just going to get more and more common especially if the Republicans makes some gains this next election *shudder*. Seems like a meals-on-wheels/medical station that features organic food and herbal pepper spray remedies will be very much in demand as our country goes down the tubes.

axmxz September 27, 2011 at 1:34 pm

The only business opportunities in Zuccotti park are gyros and bottled vitamin water.

"(pro tip: poop at McDonald’s, not in your pants)"

Riley, I hope this tip is a priori and intuitive, rather than based on a posteriori, empirical evidence.

weejee September 27, 2011 at 10:28 am

No shit.

tessiee September 27, 2011 at 10:10 pm

""poop at McDonald’s, not in your pants)" … I hope this tip is a priori and intuitive, rather than based on a posteriori"

Wouldn't poop comments be, by definition, a posteriori?

Respitetini September 27, 2011 at 9:47 am

Thank you for being out there, Riley. No snark, just gratitude. Stay safe.

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 9:59 am

OK NYC Wonketteers, my cold will be better by tomorrow, so I am going downtown to join the merry band, anyone else up for that?

wondering where i am September 27, 2011 at 10:10 am

I might sashay down me own self. Will you be wearing a Limeylizzie sign? Maybe just some limes?

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 10:16 am

I will be coughing and blowing my nose and looking a bit like a younger Judi Dench and you?

wondering where i am September 27, 2011 at 10:23 am

I'm more the Helen Mirren type (ha, ha, I wish). I have long gray blonde hair, but will not be wearing yellow like the grannies. Yellow is a bad color for the silver-haired.

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 10:29 am

Golden yellow is one of my best colours, but I will not be wearing that. Maybe we should wear a “W” for Wonkette badge or sign or something.

NeonTrotsky September 27, 2011 at 10:29 am

I am still going to work during the day but I am there on weekends and nights. I met Riley last night! I'm a bearded guy with shaggy hair, so yeah, good luck picking me out of the crowd.

HistoriCat September 27, 2011 at 11:52 am

Someone has to protect young Riley! Who knows what other things that poor boy might be exposed to out there on the mean streets of New York.

Ken Layne September 27, 2011 at 12:14 pm

Beloved Wonkette commenter KenLayIsAlive has been there on and off all week. I have a batch of photos from him that I need to post. I think he's still there!

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Oh I just adore KenLayIsAlive, I must try and single him out.

BaldarTFlagass September 27, 2011 at 1:34 pm

Shouldn't be too hard; from his avatar, I'd say he looks just like Ken Lay, but with a blonde wig.

horsedreamer_1 September 27, 2011 at 8:32 pm

You picture us as our avatars, too?

prommie September 27, 2011 at 1:19 pm

Will there be hippiechicks? I will make a sign saying "Make Love, Not Derivatives."

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 1:26 pm

Judging by Riley's photos I am going to join the Grannies for Peace.

prommie September 27, 2011 at 3:35 pm

At least some patchouli?

Limeylizzie September 27, 2011 at 4:02 pm

Oh Darling, I'm more of a Rochas girl.

Mojopo September 27, 2011 at 10:05 am

Our grannies are healthier. Not one of them was riding a scooter. A clean conscience keeps a lady young at heart.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:36 pm

My granny lived to be 96 and always maintained that it was hard work that kept her young. Chopped her own firewood and drew her own water from the well to a ripe old age.

Tommmcattt September 27, 2011 at 11:38 am

Just so you know, Riley, of all the rent boys I know, you are my very favorite.

NeonTrotsky September 27, 2011 at 1:07 pm

Wonkette please approve this long time lurker and Occupy Wall Streeter to post :(

ttommyunger September 27, 2011 at 1:27 pm

Once again I am impressed and ashamed of myself, also, too, as well as….

DahBoner September 27, 2011 at 1:29 pm

I agree with Randi Rhoades. They're in the wrong place.

Wall Street Banksters don't give a shit about angry peasants.

They should be occupying the offices and hallways of every Republican congressman/woman/critter.

MAKE THEIR LIVES A LIVING HELL BY GETTING IN THE WAY OF THEIR BAG BOYS!

That's when they get upset.

When the supply of brown paper bags with money in it is halted…

Cornel West will address the General Assembly tonight!

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 8:50 pm

Oh, Riley Waggaman! You are SO cute when you're mad.

Also, thanks for documenting this. You are so brave! And thanks to your Mom for lending her Yoga mat to defeat Teh Powers of Evil.

fitley September 27, 2011 at 9:45 pm

i don't think anybody appreciates the incredible amount of self-control the cops are forced to display by not tasering Michael Moore's nutsack. It has to be excruciating.

marinmaven September 28, 2011 at 10:50 am

Recently I went to Dining with Democrats in Marin County where they honored the Mill Valley Seniors for Peace. Eighty to ninety year olds get out there and protest war more than the twenty year olds do. I hope when I am eighty or ninety I will be seen with a gas mask and wearing tie dye protesting the man and the senseless wars he wages.

BZ1 September 28, 2011 at 12:46 pm

anyone arrested yet, I mean in the banks…

Guppy06 September 27, 2011 at 10:34 am

I'm not sure the letter "W" would be well-received in that crowd.

Might I suggest carrying around a bottle of gin?

Tommmcattt September 27, 2011 at 11:40 am

You could always carry around a pair of trucknuts.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:33 pm

Oooh, cold remedy!

Ken Layne September 27, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Remember that when you see an "old Republican" teabagger today, you're looking at someone who was young in the 1960s — someone who was in favor of segregation by race, the firebombing of rice farmers half a world away, and the murder of American protesters by state militias. These were the same downsized factory proles and uptight "small businessmen" who then embraced Ronald Reagan and the "Moral Majority" and cheered every bully attack on some harmless country full of brown people who looked at us the wrong way.

I know there are Oldz who "became conservative" in middle age, but they're far outnumbered by people who have simply been ignorant assholes their entire lives.

BerkeleyBear September 27, 2011 at 12:24 pm

Yeah, my mom is basically a dem now (pro gay rights, pro taxes on the rich, pro racial justice (albeit with some racial perception issues that are cringeworthy), but she has to be verrrrrry quiet about it since my father has shifted even further right as he ages. I think he might be a Paulite, since he's an atheist who thinks the government can't do shit right even as he cashes his SS check.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 8:58 pm

Good onya, Caveman! My in-laws quit the Republican party after Bush was elected. He horrified their very staid conservative values. I b'leev they voted for Obama, but they swore they would never vote for another Republican.

Dashboard_Jesus September 28, 2011 at 2:03 am

WIN for "inertia and ignorance"…I'm sooo gonna use that in the many comments to be made on Red State in the coming year of hate and fear, otherwise known as republican Primary season

DashboardBuddha September 27, 2011 at 4:07 pm

So, you're saying the Brietbart wants to get medieval on Riley's ass?

horsedreamer_1 September 27, 2011 at 8:28 pm

The only Young Republicans who move left are those who were social conservatives who ended up coming out — does not apply to the Log Cabin, as they are money, money, money obsessed and could give a rat's ass about abortion — or Fountainhead geeks who realized that left-wing pussy is better. Or so has been the case, in my experience. And, oh yeah, big ups to BL and drezdn, the two exemplars of the Right gone Left.

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:34 pm

Doesn't everybody? And where's YOUR av?

PalinzADummy September 27, 2011 at 9:35 pm

You did not just say that, Lizzie, Queen of my Heart! OMG. The first woman I ever loved always dabbed on a tiny bit of Rochas for a night out. If I wasn't already madly in love with you, I'd have to fall for you now.

Amazing. I can almost smell it.

baconzgood September 28, 2011 at 8:39 am

PalinzADummy September 28, 2011 at 11:42 am

Promise me we'll never, ever end up in a car alone together trying to navigate to some distant place.

Dashboard_Jesus September 28, 2011 at 11:40 pm

It sounds lovely, hell all I got (from GAWD apparently?) was this pasty white skin passed down from my poor Irish ancestors who apparently were TOO poor to afford just a little melanin…and for my ntire life the best I can do to change it is to let the mean old Sun (of Gawd?) turn my white skin a gay shade of pink when I dare to spend more than 15 minutes under It's cruel rays of death…alas that is my cross to burn…I mean BEAR in this life, the lonely existence of a PINK 'Merkan (oh the humanity!)
