How To Defend Occupy Wall Street Protestors From Conservative Attacks

On the Bill Maher show the panel turned to the reasons for the Occupy Wall Street protests and P.J. O'Rourke wonders if it was because they had "flunked econ".  Alan Grayson states that he has no problem understanding the Occupy Wall Street Protestors and proceeds to list the reasons for the protests.  In response to those legitimate grievances  P.J.
O'Rourke mocks Mr. Grayson:
"Give the man a bongo drum, they've found their spokesman.
Get a Bongo drum, forget where to go to the bathroom and it's yours."
 In his wonderful response, Mr. Alan Grayson receives the first standing ovation from an audience in the history of Real Time.  I watched this at home and found myself cheering at Alan's quick and precise list of grievances.  The camera doesn't show the standing ovation but you can hear it, in the wild cheers.
