Comedy, thy name is Liberals

So, a bunch of liberals are "occupying" Wall Street. There are a few problems with this though.

For one, to claim Wall Street is "occupied" when its operations have barely been impacted is a stretch, to put it mildly. Second, if they're really upset at Wall Street, I would hope they'll vote against the re-election of a President who's been in the pocket of Wall Street, but somehow I doubt they'll follow through on their rhetoric.

To make things even funnier, they only managed to get as many as a few thousand "occupiers" because of a false rumor that the band Radiohead was going to perform for them:

"I actually think it's kind of ridiculous," said a dreadlocked 20-year-old who identified himself as Pigpen. "The only reason 500 people are here is because they think Radiohead is going to be here."

Organizers were red-faced.

"I got hoaxed," said Patrick Bruner, who has been e-mailing on behalf of the Occupy Wall Street protesters. "Radiohead was never confirmed. Completely our fault. Apologies. "

To make things even more amusing:

A crowd of more than 2,000 people marched up Broadway, past a closed City Hall Park, under the arch of the Municipal Building and massed outside what some mistakenly thought was NYPD headquarters.

But most of the chanting horde plopped down in front of One St. Andrew's Plaza, which houses the U.S. Attorney's Office, not the NYPD.

But remember, it's the Tea Party who's stupid, ill-informed and guided by false information.
