My condolences, Ed. I know how much you wanted to believe this was true -- how much you needed to believe it's true.
Not only that, you claimed on your radio show that it was accurate, and more than once, only to learn -- from a political ally! -- that it wasn't. Such are the seldom-felt joys of slogging through left-wing media. (audio clips after page break)
Leftist talk-radio screamer Mike Malloy brought his extreme rhetoric from the radio to an "Occupy" protest stage set up at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. He took a couple of days off from the radio show so he could delight the crowd by telling the "corporate thugs" to "go f--- yourself."
His wife and producer Kathy blogged on the Malloy show website: "It’s not the Tea Party of the Left, if for no other reason than the members can spell and haven’t assembled to denigrate, humiliate, or marginalize any socioeconomic or ethnic segment of society. The Occupy Wall Street movement is also different from the games Teabaggers play in that it has mushroomed overnight to cities all over the country while receiving barely a mention in the press."
