99 Percenters Foil Cops With Amazing #OWS Bat Signal

Your Wonkette had a chance to see the #OWS Bat Signal firsthand last night at the Day of Action protests on the Brooklyn Bridge — take a minute to watch the video. But even more awesomer than the Bat Signal is how it got there, thanks to a nice single mom living in the run-down projects located directly in front of the building of the monstrous union-busting Verizon overlords.

Meghan McCain Writes Least Insightful Column About #OWS In History

EVERYONE EXHALE, America’s foremost pillar of Internet opinionation Meghan McCain has finally found time in her manic schedule writing her bi-monthly Daily Beast column to drop by Zuccotti Park so she can do her part and help explain to any of her readers who have been in a coma for the last month, “what’s up with all that protesting?” The exciting title for her piece is “My Day at Occupy Wall Street” in accordance with the third-grade manual of style guidelines for first-person essays about field trips to the zoo, which is what we will call her “theme” since Meg has eschewed the more reporterly trope of using any kind of “angle” whatsoever. So let’s see, what trove of recycled generalizations has our intrepid columnist obtained through her journey? Read more on Meghan McCain Writes Least Insightful Column About #OWS In History…

Ungrateful NYC Panhandler Reminds Wall Street CEO of Barack Obama

What on earth is America come to these days? Wall Street CEO David Moore is just aghast — aghast! — from a thoroughly horrid recent encounter where not only did a New York City street beggar refuse a charitable one-dollar bill that Moore proffered to him, but the beggar (really, you will not believe this) even threw the dollar on the ground! The insolence! Well, this will not do. Rude manners can hurt millionaires’ feelings too, you know! Oh, and these feelings shall not go quietly into the night, no, not this time. Moore must bravely recount his story to local country club bulletin the Wall Street Journal, so that all may ponder and shake their heads. Wherefore the panhandler’s venom against the rich man? Most certainly it is an unprecedented incident in the history of New York City, just as surely as someone put the poor man up to it. The culprit? If you guessed, “Barack Obama made him do it,” keep reading! Read more on Ungrateful NYC Panhandler Reminds Wall Street CEO of Barack Obama…

69 Percent of Fox News Poll Takers In Favor of Occupy Wall Street

WHUT MADNESS IS THIS? 69% of FoxNews.com’s illiterate poll trolls love the Occupy Wall Street protest so much they want to marry it and get pregnant with miniature copies of Das Kapital? Ha ha, no, it was probably a handful of bored Daily Kos commenters clicking the “YES” button on the survey over and over several hundred thousand times, to give the Internet a special present just in time for Jesus Ween.

Wingnuts’ ‘We Are The 53 Percent’ Just Proves Point of ’99 Percent’ Movement

Right-wing hobo prince Erick Erickson started a cheeky conservative response to the popular “We are the 99 percent” tumblr with his very own “We are the 53 percent” site using the Republicans’ parrot-poop false “point” that only 53% of Americans pay taxes. The site is remarkable only for the fact that the user-submitted stories are just as depressing and virtually identical to the “99 percent” stories, except that these struggling Americans are militantly defensive of their poverty and anusburgers. They are mysteriously very excited to spend the sum of their waking existence working bone-dissolving hours on the brink of a health problem-induced catastrophe! SO THERE, LIBTARD WHINERS. Let us read a few at random, for tears and misery and patriotism. Read more on Wingnuts’ ‘We Are The 53 Percent’ Just Proves Point of ’99 Percent’ Movement…

Almost Twice As Many People Have Heard of Occupy Wall Street As Rick Perry

Americans are so bored with the assortment of bargain bin feces-flingers running for the GOP nomination that — several thousand blathering news cycles and millions of dollars in campaign spending later — only 28% of people can even identify the existence of best-known Republican candidate-clown Rick Perry, because he is terrible and nobody cares about his plans to invade Mexico and dismantle Social Security. A new poll shows that after less than a month of protests and “not millions of dollars,” 23% more Americans have heard of the Wall Street protests than can remember Rick Perry’s name. Plain old popular recognition is not the be-all-end-all of the protests, but still, HA HA: Read more on Almost Twice As Many People Have Heard of Occupy Wall Street As Rick Perry…

Stupid Fox Nation Photo Editing Proves Michelle Malkin Is An Idiot

UH, this picture is the best the lazy photo editors at Fox Nation could do to create propaganda illustrations to fit Michelle Malkin’s lunatic rantings about the MASSIVE RACISM of the Wall Street protesters, the latest teatard fiction du jour to prove the Ocupados are just a bunch of cruel hobos. Yes, just look at the sea of 99% white faces! Or don’t, unless you happen to be mainlining the fistfuls of hallucinogenic chemicals that naturally fill Michelle Malkin’s sour brain cells.  Read more on Stupid Fox Nation Photo Editing Proves Michelle Malkin Is An Idiot…

Dim CNN Reporter’s News Analysis of Protesters: They Just ‘Smoke Weed’

HAR HAR the whiny hippie 4-year-olds and their marijuana drugs and their stupid drum circles protesting nothing down on Wall Street, that’s a funny! Such wit! Since there is no “opinions are my own” disclaimer on the Twitter feed of CNN business reporter Alison Kosik, we will assume this is the actual official “investigative journalism” of CNN’s crack stable of petulant child-reporter comedians. What other brilliant insights are there to be shared?

Fox News Reporter Tries To Trick Wall Street Protester With Sincere Questions

Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins was so desperate to get a liberal protester on camera speaking crazy socialismz that he used the last, most “full nuclear” interview trick in the Fox News handbook — he offered complete journalistic objectivity in exchange for the nice man giving his viewpoint. Watch Jenkins promise this protester, Jesse LaGreca, that he is “not going to be in any way biased about” his reporting of whatever LaGreca says, although honestly we would have believed Jenkins more if he had said he would take a piss on Barry Goldwater’s grave in exchange for a krazy interview. Whatever it takes, right? Read more on Fox News Reporter Tries To Trick Wall Street Protester With Sincere Questions…
