Drudge pumped this one hard:

Santelli's Chicago Tea Party

CNBC video

This is a video and there is no embed code, so you have to go to the link to see it. But it is well worth it.

Here is how Drudge anchored the link on his news link page (twice, once for each paragraph):

TRADERS REVOLT: CNBC HOST CALLS FOR NEW 'TEA PARTY'; CHICAGO FLOOR MOCKS OBAMA PLAN...

VIDEO: 'The government is promoting bad behavior... do we really want to subsidize the losers' mortgages... This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbor's mortgage? President Obama are you listening? How about we all stop paying our mortgage! It's a moral hazard'... MORE...

Glenn Beck told O'Reilly that it sounded nutty, but he was expecting a depression, then a revolution. I wonder if this is what the beginning of one sounds like.

This is mainstream media, not the blogosphere.

I admit, I'm impressed. America is still one hell of a great country.

Lol

I have been too busy to do it all day, but boy was it powerful.

Rush spent close to 20 minutes on Atlas Shrugged and beautifully pulled it into the weave of Bloomberg [Mayor NYC] explaining - NOW CURRENT AND FUTURE STRIKERS PAY ATTENTION - that 40, 000 NYC citizens paid about 51% of the taxes in NYC.

Rush then concluded that as Rand pointed out, if 20,000 of the doers who are the targets of O'Bama and marxism moved away [went on strike], they could bring NY City to destruction.

Rush still does not get the key, in my humble, non orthodox beanie with propeller wearing Objectivist, to the essential element to Atlas which is how many of us permit people to victimize us daily and subconsciously sanction being treated that way.

Please let us not refer to that person as "O'Bama." It makes my Irish (and Welsh) blood boil to even imply he's a son of Hibernia!

I think Rush gets it in spades. I heard him last week talk of how when the Democrats overreach, they will create a state so massive that the Republicans can turn the statism on their former tormentors once they get back into power.

I believe that it is incumbent upon every American to make Obama fail. I am willing to take an economic "hit" if it will help bring down these nakedly power-hungry goons.

And, incidentally, all the conservatives who are calling this "socialism," you are falling into the liberals' trap: The liberals themselves have become so emboldened as to call it "socialism" already (see Newsweek's recent cover "We're All Socialists Now").

No, what Pelosi, Obama, and Reid, et al, are pulling is fascism. With all-too-willing big business cohorts, they will force a merger between the corporations and government (the hesitant are already being bullied into "cooperating") on such a widespread scale as we've never seen before in America. Anyone familiar with Mussolini's rise to power -- in how he took a revolutionary governing philosophy and couched it in traditionalist terminology -- will see eerie echoes in Obama's all-too similar stratagem.

Obama is no Zelig, sans personality; that is only what he wants us to think. His ruse of being "all things to all people" masks a man who has a very distinctly sociopathic personality, the ruthless tyrant.

Ok then we will use the nickname I have for him - O'Biwan The Most Merciful. The Most Just and The Most Pure.

But do you not realize that he is clearly from the Black Irish!

Glad you agree with me about Rush - conservatism leaves a bitter taste in many folks minds here, but I will walk with the Devil for a mile if it advances the cause.

I looked at the Amazon Book Bestseller list and Atlas was 92. I maybe on to an explanation.

You might all reread the chapter in Atlas after Galt's speech.

Folks:

Rush said in his 3rd hour, "You might want to pull an Atlas Shrugged, but you will have to feed your family."

I just found this interesting/amusing:

Welcome to Obamageddon.

I thought Rick Santelli made some wonderful points during his original rant on CNN last week. I signed up to recieved up dates a few days ago from the Chicago Tea Party site. Not sure where they are going to end up, but at least interesting to watch.
