Wall Street's view of the WI protests

WIReview & Outlook: Athens in Mad Town -

Hey, Rabble, you're making your Wall Street Overlords tetchy. (Image via Gerry Canavan.)

For Americans who don't think the welfare state riots of France or Greece can happen here, we recommend a look at the union and Democratic Party spectacle now unfolding in Wisconsin. Over the past few days, thousands have swarmed the state capital and airwaves to intimidate lawmakers and disrupt Governor Scott Walker's plan to level the playing field between taxpayers and government unions.
Oh, Wall Street, you're so adorable. What you've done to the WI employee pension plan could best be described using violent sexual imagery, yet you still have the audacity to paint the workers as little better than anarchist rabble-rousers out to destroy the middle-class.
