She may not be the best representative for the 99 percent. But at least she has the best name ...

I really like this hippi chick Ketchup. I'd like toknow more about her like from a Facebook page or something. But I can't seem tofind anything out about her yet. If you know her real name or how I could readsomething else about her let me know. I was so frustrated that I wrote her alittle poem:

A Love Bomb for Ketchup

Oh ketchup I adore you so.

Your little yellow polkadot dress and your red Sally JesseRaphael frames accessorize your long red hair and porcelain skin so cute.

You are the anti-heroine of the noble cause of Occupy WallStreet. Yet you are automatous you say.  Idon't understand you but I love you ketchup.

You I declare, you ketchup, you are the protest’s postergirl.

You inspire me to live again the ideals of my youth. I wantto be there by your side ketchup when they shackle us and take us away and webecome the martyred lovers of the movement.

I wiggle my fingers above my head for you ketchup.

Consensus has been reached… I want to be your friend onFacebook.

But Ketchup what of you? Why do you not have a Facebookpage?

I seek you yet find you not on the Web.

I shall journey to New York to be with you, the Ketchup onmy eggs…

I would think that someone like her who is outside the mainstream would spell her name C-A-T-S-U-P.

@BR But the "protest" is sort of like a joke in the first place.  Let's not lay it all on these two kids.  There is a lot of anger and envy (and more than a little anti-semitism and xenophobic nationalism) down there, but very little true liberalism or thoughtful consideration for what ails our society.  This "protest" is little more than an anti-intellectual gathering of disadvantaged people that are sitting in wait for a good demogogue to come along and turn them into Brown Shirts for some proto-faschist movement.  There is nothing romantic about it.

That stupid ass kid just made the entire protest look like a joke.  How gay.

Agreed that she's cute.

What a shame that she's allowed to talk.

She is so cute. But too bad, she's the type who would kick you in the balls for calling her "cute" (or beautiful, it doesn't matter) .

"...anti-intellectual gathering of disadvantaged people..."

On the contrary it looks like a bunch of comfortable middle class pseudo intellectuals blaming the adverse effects of their own imagination based agenda on others.

Maybe not advantaged by good Semitic standards ;), but those kids aren't starving.And they're all dressed to the nines in the latest angsty rebel gear from hot topic.Guy Fawkes masks and all.

The people who are really starving cant get away with smoking weed and playing bongo's in the park because we've got unpaid tickets and warrants for our arrest.

@Mak:twitter  I'm not sure which protests you're watching, but while I agree that a lot of the Occupy protest stuff is silly and seemingly directionless, I completely disagree with your characterization of the protestors. 

I happen to know the "male bodied" "kid" in the video.  I've occasionally found him less than ideally informed about the causes he takes up, and I often disagree with him--I'm a centrist-minded corporate lawyer and tend to view public policy through a more practical lens than my idealistic left-wing friends.  But he most certainly is not anti-intellectual, proto-fascist or anti-semitic (in fact he's Jewish and quite involved in the Jewish community).  I was reading about the Occupy movement on his facebook page long before the first protester showed up downtown and while he certainly has a sense of humor about it all, I can assure you that he's completely serious about his activism--as are my other friends who have taken up the cause.

If you think there are things they can do to have more effect (back political leaders, propose ballot initiatives, etc.), that's all fine and good.  But don't go insulting people who are committing tremendous amounts of time and energy to a genuine pursuit of a better world.  Click away from the Drudge Report, put down your New York Post and go talk to some of these kids to either see what they have to say or tell them what you think about how they can do better.

@ BR newsflash! The protest has been a joke since day 1...

I would talk to them but they smell and are generally idiots.  It's very cute to try to pursue a "better world" but when you have no idea how to make it better (or don't understand simple economics or the way the world works), then you are wasting your time.  And costing tax payers money.  And making life worse for people that live and work in that area (and I'm not talking about the people that work  in finance - I'm talking about restaurant bus boys and waiters, and shop owners, etc.).

What the OWS people have done is made things worse.  They are pathetic and they are stupid.  And naive.  Move along now.

Interesting to accuse someone posting in the VV of just reading Drudge and the NYP.I agree it takes a special person to have a sense of humor about it all while still being serious about their cause. Rare breed.

Like the dopes who donated to Sarah Palin's "campaign"?

A majority of Americans agree with OWS, a movement that spread across the globe in weeks and is now changing the entire national dialogue. Who even mentioned the term income inequality in the mainstream media before the 99%?

Don't be jealous

Actually, a "majority" of Americans do not agree with OWS.  A "majority" means over 50%, and, thankfully, not over 50% of Americans are morons.  

Given that you are clearly a sympathizer, it's not a surprise that you are a moron yourself.

What does Sarah Palin have to do with the discussion?

Nothing?

It's the left just can't let her go...
