When producers for the Mike Huckabee show on Fox called, I thought they were interested in my thoughts about what the OWS crowd was doing wrong.
But no, they had a real live Tea Party organizer to handle that side of the argument. Instead, the producers wanted me to defend the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
So, like Lat, I had to go down there and check them out. Then, after a delousing, I had to go on television and defend their cause.
Tell me how I did….
The discussion between Dennis and I continued off-camera, in the hallway, and back in the green room. It was lively.
Obviously, I’ve found the student loan concerns to be the easiest thing for me to get behind. When I went down to the protests, I saw a girl dressed in her cap and gown with her husband. Both of them are drowning in debt. Some random dude was telling her to “get a job,” and I joined her in trying to explain how it’s really not that simple.
Luckily, we didn’t have time to talk about the aspects of the protests that are harder to defend. I mean, they “vote” by hand signals, and one of the hand signals means “I’m not sure how I feel about this.”
Can you imagine? I can just see a SCOTUS health care ruling, four votes upholding, four votes calling it unconstitutional, and Anthony Kennedy starting off his majority opinion with: “I’m not sure how I feel about this.”
