This week, Herman Cain failed his foreign policy pop quiz on Libya ("I got all this stuff twirling around in my head" is the campaign trail equivalent of "the dog ate my homework"). Congress failed basic nutrition when it voted to dismiss new guidelines that would have upped the amount of fresh veggies and fruit in school lunches and instead declared that frozen pizza qualified as a vegetable (which, I'm sure, had nothing to do with the $5.6 million the food industry has spent lobbying against the healthier regulations). And New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn't pass the sniff test when he claimed that he ordered the surprise NYPD raid on Occupy Wall Street's Zuccotti Park encampment because it had become a "fire safety hazard." The Occupy movement is in large part a response to the diminished credibility of governments everywhere. And the way governments are dealing with the movement only further diminishes their credibility. An epic fail.

Mayor Bloomberg's Victory Could Be Good News for Occupy Wall Street

Dan Collins | Posted 01.15.2012 | New York

Michael Bloomberg's edict against the campers in Zuccotti Park could really wind up helping OWS in the long run. Even the utopian vision of the park was not really the point of the protests, which were about the way most Americans are slipping out of the middle class as the top one percent is getting more and more obscenely wealthy. OWS can drive that home without living on the street. They can still protest in the park. They can still march. They can still make themselves heard. And we will be back talking about what they're saying, and not whether or not their campsite is clean.
