"Listen up, you protest people! You have gone and alienated Newt Gingrich, who wants you to take a bath and get a job. Or vice-versa. And his words were greeted with applause from coast to coast. You guys should take notice.
A couple of months ago, the polls showed that many Americans sympathized with your movement. After all, who likes greed-head Wall Street folks manipulating the financial markets? They bathe, but so what? They're corrupt, and you are right to demand the government provide oversight of them.
But that point has been largely lost, because the "Occupy" movement is now perceived as radical and incoherent. The loons moved in and the sincere protestors ceded the spotlight. All of a sudden, the Sons of Anarchy were getting all the camera time. Most Americans are willing to listen, but not to guys with scorpions tattooed on their necks. And then there were the ugly displays of police baiting and mindless destruction. The result? According to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, just 28% of Americans now approve of the "Occupy" movement, and James Carville will no longer take their calls."
