The Silent Majority Lives

A friend sent a link to the Rick Santelli "Rant of the Year" on CNBC, which attracted the White House's ire but which I'd missed until now. Hard to see why people got so upset. He obviously had the moral support of the folks on the trading floor. It's not any harsher that Keith Olbermann's periodic rants, though it comes from a different ideological perspective (or in Santelli's case, a non-ideological, middle-class, "Network," I'm-not-going-to-take-it-anymore kind of a place). Interesting that he invokes RN's silent majority.
