DC Douglas, as you might recall, was the Geico voice-over guy who was fired after ranting about the Tea Party’s opposition to health care. He’s been making his own videos since then and while they’re all quite good, this one is definitely his best.
From his post:
I attended Day 1 of #OccupyLosAngeles on Saturday. But after loving some signs and finding others antithetical to my world view, I decided to embrace the tangible goals I saw there. I found three that I think could be effective in partly reversing the inequity of the last 30 years.
In that post, he also articulates the parts that bother him. They’re similar to what bothers me. But I agree with him that there are other parts which we all should agree on, and he’s laid them out pretty well in that video.
Howie Klein’s post today about having an inside/outside strategy is one worth paying attention to as well. As I said the other day, all of this translates to discontent with no change unless the inside game is played alongside the outside game. Meanwhile, digby finds some bankers who just don’t understand the discontent all that well. They’re actually surprised?
