Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

I had to read it twice to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. Yup, Lech Walesa is coming to make common cause with the commie protesters in Zuccotti Park.
Solidarity hero Lech Walesa is flying to New York to show his support for the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
"How could I not respond," Walesa told a Polish newspaper Wednesday. "The thousands of people gathered near Wall Street are worried about the fate of their future, the fate of their country. This is something I understand."
A former shipyard worker who led Poland's successful revolt against Soviet communism, Walesa said "capitalism is in crisis" and not just in America.
He "understands?" What? Staring down Soviet communism is exactly like agitating for free college tuition? Or, once you've saved a country from the yoke of totalitarian oppression it's time to vilify the Jews?
What exactly about Big Lethargy is so enamoring to a statesman of Walesa's stature?
Mark Steyn: They're the most pampered, blinkered, narcissistic, useless generation in the history of Western civilization. And if they got their way, we would be living in the ruins of a once-glorious civilization. Now I have no quarrels with attacking Wall Street. I do it in my book. I think you can make the case that the American banking system is perhaps the most inept and dysfunctional in the G-7, for example. But these people have no solutions to that. These are people who want to create a society that actually obliges them to do nothing. They want to live a Western lifestyle without doing the work necessary to maintain that lifestyle. And if they were to get their way, we're all done for. And to listen to the president of the United States, the supposed leader of the supposed free world pandering to them, kissing up to them, saying that he understands their frustrations because he's frustrated, too, he should be ashamed of himself.
Yes, Mr. Walesa, by all means stand in solidarity with Hugo Chavez and a plethora of dilettante lefties. Just remember, they're the same kind of useful idiots who flocked to Josef Stalin's side. Birds of a feather, you know. Maybe that was before your time?
(What are the odds that the Memeorandum thread, which is currently populated with progbots cheering Walesa on, will pick me up?)
