OCCUPY WALL STREET WATCH: Chris Matthews, Quotable ... Naturally

“It’s amazing to see. It’s almost like you’re hearing L’Internationale — not to disparage this effort.”

~ Our good friend, MSNBC's Chris Matthews, host of Hardball.

You didn’t disparage it at all, Chris. And since you asked for it, here it is in that wonderful scene from REDS, Warren Beatty's masterpiece chronicling the life of John Reed, American revolutionary communist, journalist, writer of Ten Days that Shook the World, about the Russian Revolution. Diane Keaton plays his lover, socialite Louise Bryant, who leaves her Wall Street life behind to join Reed's own version of Occupy Wall Street in Greenwich Village, ever the home of liberals, progressives, revolutionists, and artists. How many John Reeds and Louise Bryants do you suppose are encamped in Liberty Park, and throughout this great land where the OWS demonstrations have sprouted? John Reed LIVES!
