I, One

11/29/11 04:25PM

Throughout the whole Occupy saga, we’ve heard precious little from the much-derided one percent itself. (Funny, the super rich don’t seem to be losing any sleep about being adequately represented.)  That’s why this video is so revealing.

Last night on the show, Rachel called out former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty for saying on msnbc that she was ducking him, "bobbing, weaving," not having him back on the show. We'd in fact been calling Mr. Pawlenty's press people and asking for him to be our guest again, since we saw that he wanted to come on. "Stop talking smack if you can't back it up," Rachel said. read more
