Live-blogging OWS daily since October 1. Email: email@example.com. All times ET. My new e-book is "40 Days That Shook the World: From Occupy Wall St. to Occupy Everywhere." Also my very OWS-relevant "The Campaign of the Century" has just been re-issued, my other books here.
8:10 God only grants one miracle per week so no win for Santorum on Tuesday.
6:50 Jake Tapper of ABC tweeting "Mitt kills jobs!" protest in NH and Gov. Christiie response: "the size of the American pie is limitless." So is Christie. Big day for pie — and baloney, pious or otherwise.
6:30 Great photo from 1930s, by John Gutman h/t Ernie Lowe.
11:30 For today’s OWN song pick of the day we had a submission: Patti Smith’s "Free Money" from way back when she was writing for me at Crawdaddy. h/t Jeff Smith and @grungyberns
11:00 Bill Clinton, quoted in Forbes, of all places, on OWS: “I think what they’re doing is great,” he said. “Occupy Wall Street has done more in the short time they’ve been out there than I’ve been able to do in more than the last eleven years trying to draw attention to some of the same problems we have to address,” he said.
10:30 Favorite moment of post-debate: John Sununu tells MSNBC "everyone hates" the SuperPACs–but blames Congress for law that "forced" GOPers on Supreme Court to back the idea.
9:15 Yes, I am tweeting GOP debate again over @gregmitch. Remember the days when every debate had one or more Occupy-related questions? Past few weeks: nothing. Now questions only about how to make 99% "feel pain," not the 1%.
9:00 Linguists pick "occupy" as word of the year, no surprise.
9:55 This just in: Santorum in debate says "there are no classes" in America, not even a middle class. So if no classes, how can there be class war, fella? Catch up on my other debate comments @gregmitch
7:30 Romney finally asked by NH voter if he would give up some of his fortune to help people. First he looks befuddled, then laughs, then agrees that having four homes "is a good idea." Then quotes Margaret Thatcher… Note I’ll be live-tweeting the debate tonight at 9, god help us all.
