You think I am kidding. But I'm not. Occupy Wall Street has been happening for almost a full week now, and I have not heard a peep about it except via Olbermann. When I post links on Facebook, no one knows what I am talking about. At the same time, the MSM practically wets itself whenever the Tea Party rolls into town.
So the plan is just beyond the squiggle.
Why don't we dress up as Uncle Sam, get some Don't Tread on Me signs, misspell some slogans, and gather somewhere important? It doesn't matter how many of us show up, as long as we call ahead and let the media know that the Tea Party is in town, they will bring as many as 1 reporter for every three protestors. Hell, we might even get reporters to outnumber us. When they come up and ask for quotes, we say things like, "Corporate control of our financial system is unpatriotic," or "I shouldn't have to pay more taxes than millionaires," or " I think John McCain is a Panamanian!"
The plan is to use the Tea Party name to get media exposure for progressive ideas. The added benefit of this is that eventually, the right wing media will not know which protests are ours and which are theirs, and so will be just as likely to ignore them as they are to ignore us.
