You know, a movement purporting to represent the 99% protesting, among other things, the grotesquely disproportionate wealth of the top 1%, loses a lot of credibility when it embraces mega-millionaire entertainment celebrities such as Kanye West, Russell Simmons, Beyonce & Jay Z, etc. I mean, there's something obscene about a guy like Russell Simmons driving to the protest in a vehicle worth more than what some 1%-ers earn per year (he literally drove a $500,000 vehicle there, and it's just one of many cars he owns).
