While they were mocked and ignored until Tony Bologna decided to be a minor-league Bull Connor the protests on Wall Street are gathering momentum – here come the veterans:

…as the action nears the start of its third week, unions and community groups are eager to jump on board. They are motivated perhaps by a sense of solidarity and a desire to tap into its growing success, but undoubtedly by something else too—embarrassment that a group of young people using Twitter and Facebook have been able to draw attention to progressive causes in a way they haven’t been able to in years.

Well, the right-wing and media mockery will flow now that the unions are getting involved…I guess protests that aren’t underwritten by the Koch Brothers — $11 billion richer the couple years as they laid off thousands, those job creators — are not very “Murican”.

Meanwhile, the Greeks, if not their government, know how to do a protest as well.

International experts with the task of compiling a crucial review of Greece’s fiscal progress ran into trouble before they could even start the job as public-sector workers protesting against wage cuts, layoffs and higher taxes locked them out of office buildings.

Well, I hope Antonius Bolognius was ready with the pepper spray.
