This interview of the Occupy Wall Street protestors by Youtuber “americanmayor” (AKA Travis Irvine) is full of his wry, low-key humor. This is definitely one of the best reports on the Occupy Wall Street protests.
The Politico is running a story that claims Herman Cain raped two women while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association . . . wait, make that sexually assaulted . . . no, make that sexually harassed . . . no, wait he allegedly made “physical gestures that were not overtly sexual” toward to two women. Ah, that’s very clear. Now they want him to answer for anonymous charges that they won’t even describe. Here’s the smear story.
This reminds me of the phony sexual harassment charges that were brought up against Clarence Thomas when he was appointed to the Supreme Court. It also reminds me of the outright lies that were told about Sarah Palin’s baby. And how about the recent Washington Post smear against Marco Rubio? It seems that any person who rises to a position of power on the right, who isn’t a white man, gets an obligatory phony smear by the “tolerant” liberal press.
Now the author of the Politico’s smear, Jonathan Martin, says he’s “just not going to get into the details” of the story. Nice one, Politico. Make allegations and then refuse to substantiate them with details.
I’m not sure what it is about the economy that goes so well with rap, but Reason TV’s latest rap from Remy continues the tradition of great economic raps that began with the two awesome videos about Keynes and Hayek that we posted here.
