Former Rep. Alan Grayson Schools Panel On Occupy Wall Street

On last Friday's 'Real Time with Bill Maher', the subject of the Occupy Wall Street protests came up.  One of Bill's regular guests, self-described libertarian and author P.J. O'Rourke jokingly said, "Or is it simply that the Occupy Wall Street people, like us, flunked Econ (Economics 101 in college)?"

Former Democratic Congressman from Florida, Alan Grayson, who up until that point in the program, had largely remained silent, stepped up in support of the demonstrators.  To say the least, he put O'Rourke in his place.

His standing ovation was well deserved.
