'Jersey Shore' Vinny Guadagnino Thinks Occupy Wall Street Is 'Awesome'

Vinny Guadagnino has expressed the desire to attend law school, is the only cast member of the "Jersey Shore" to speak fluent Italian (a skill that made him an indispensable wing man for this season's Florence setting), and now he wants to... occupy Wall Street? But of course! Correctly pegged as the "smart one" of the overly tan guido and guidette bunch, Vinny exclusively shared a few of his political views with AOL TV, and why he might swap fist-pumping at Seaside Heights for Zuccotti Park.

"I'm part of Occupy Wall Street, eff the government ... I'm part of the 99% right now," said the 23-year-old, who studied political science in college and voted for Obama in 2008. He then described the burgeoning grass-roots movement as "awesome."

"I think it's amazing, I think it's awesome. Even if it does nothing, Americans are finally stepping up and talking about whatever issues they have. It started off talking about corporate greed, but ya know what it is ... it's more of like a brotherhood, it's more like going to Church. Even if you don't believe in the stuff, it's more about bringing people together and standing up for something. I think it's cool, because I'm from New York City, so I'm gonna go check it out actually."
