Brendan Watts is seen with blood on his face while surrounded by three police officers in Zuccotti Park, New York. 

Makes me think about something Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said last year – “We are deeply concerned about the use of violence by Egyptian police and security forces against protesters and we call on the Egyptian government to do everything in its power to restrain the security forces.”

Self-Confessedly Sharing in the Spirit of a Mass Murderer

Serial killer John Wayne Gacy & presidential candidate Michele Bachmann

.

Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too,” Ms. Bachmann said in an interview with Fox News after announcing her presidential campaign in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa. She appears to be just a bit confused about the town’s history of favorite sons. John Wayne the actor, was not from Waterloo; John Wayne Gacy the serial killer was.

Blunder aside, sharing in the spirit of John Wayne aka The Duke (born Marion Morrison), is not the most desirable of attributes. US foreign policy reflects the love of John Wayne. George Bush grew up watching Wayne. He wanted to be Wayne too. It has been said that US foreign policy has been shaped by the Duke, who influenced not only Bush, but O’Reilly, Limbaugh and the rest, even Ann Coulter.
