OccupyElection

The great Charles P. Pierce pays tribute to Occupy--which seemingly sat out the election but still influenced it greatly, with its 99% rhetoric more than a year ago.   He traces the victories of several key candidates to this (perhaps stretching the point a little), and notes that the "47% video" would not have had the impact it did--was it the true turning point?--without the 1% labeling of Occupy.

Note:  The first e-book on Obama-Romney race has just been published--and it's mine!  "Tricks, Lies, and Videotape" covers the contest right up to Election Night, and includes over 500 clickable links to the most important articles, blog posts and videos.  Just $2.99.  Enjoy.
