The poor American left.
After three years of disappointment and failure, they were so hoping the Occupy Wall Street movement would lift out of their doldrums. Unfortunately, the pot-smoking, pooping violent, sexual assaulting goons just haven’t quite figured out how to rally the country to their socialist positions.
To add insult to injury, the #OWS movement has now become a sick joke to conservatives and most Americans. On Saturday Newt Gingrich offered the #OWS goons this advice, “Go get a job right after you take a bath.”
It was too much for Mika Brezinski.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Wow. It’s really not surprising, coming from me, but that’s about the most arrogant and un-self-aware, and those are probably the only words I can use [inaudible] for any politician in this Republican field to say.
JEFFREY SACHS [income redistribution fan and Columbia prof]: Disgusting.
BRZEZINSKI: Disgusting… Someone needs a bath, and I don’t think it’s the people from Occupy Wall Street. That’s all I’m going to say. I’ve got nothing else. I’m so disgusted by that that something horrible is going to come . . . I, I, am I alone here? Am I over-reacting [note quavering voice]? I’m sickened by that . . . It’s fair to say he’s in the 1% , correct? He’s telling the 99% to take a bath and get a job? Really? Really, I wonder how they do that right now. How, given the state of this country, how anyone’s going to just get a job and take a bath. Who is this man? Who does he think he is? And why is he surging in the polls? I don’t get it. I mean,to hear Newt Gingrich standing on literally his high horse, after taking advantage of the system, cashing in, being the biggest, literally the biggest hypocrite in the Repubican field, probably in politics today. The biggest hypocrite. And then to cast aspersions and to speak down to these people as if–plghhh–they should be flipped away? It’s disgusting. It’s absolutely disgusting. It’s a very angry way to start the show. I’m extremely sorry. But it’s the first time I’d seen that. And it literally made my skin crawl. I can’t believe he resonates.
