Why do the Wall Street protestors need a spokesperson? It seems pretty obvious why they are protesting.
The other panel members were Republicans. For most of the show, Alan just sat quietly, which really surprised and disappointed me. Then suddenly, he let them have it. It was great. I just wish that the camera had shown the standing ovation.
And here is Elizabeth Warren making a similar point:
I try to avoid talking about Ann Coulter, but just to add to the irony, Coulter recently complained about the things being said by the protestors, claiming that they were just like things that were said just before the French Revolution. My question is whether that means that Coulter is comparing herself to Marie “let them eat cake” Antoinette.
