From last night on the Ed Show! We were down at 30rock yesterday and had a blast in the studio. We met one of the producers who chatted with us for a while and it was very refreshing to hear progressive voices behind media doors.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

From his first appearance:

On air Jesse did a fantastic job! I feel he spoke perfectly about UC Davis and that the tents are a physical manifestation of an idea - but you can not kill an idea. Hell you can not evict an idea. We need to be hearing more of this.

CHULTZ: Well, you heard the professor in the last segment saying
this is pretty much standard operating procedure. He`s seen the movie
before. They rough up the kids, put a cop on leave for a few days, paid
administrative leave, they`re back at it, and squashed out and the next
protest is handled the same way.

So, what has to happen?

LAGRECA: I would hope nothing has to happen. I would hope the police
would do their job and protect the citizens in compliance with the rule of

And I don`t see anywhere and any policeman across the country where
it`s standard operating procedure to apply pepper spray before you arrest
someone. I really feel if Martin Luther King Jr. were alive today he`d be
getting pepper sprayed in the face and arrested with us.
And we are a
continuation of the civil rights movement, of that fight for working class
people to earn a decent salary.

(Bold text diarist)

Thank you for bringing up Martin Luther King Jr last night.  I think it should be noted every day that he spent the last three years of his life fighting not only for civil rights but against economic injustice.

SCHULTZ: And I have to ask you this. This is coming up later in the
program. But I need to ask you, have you taken a bath today and do you
have a job? I mean, what`s your response to Newt Gingrich when he says
something like that to people who are exercising their First Amendment

LAGRECA: I think Newt Gingrich is a morally bankrupt example of the
pervasive power of politics right now. I think he`s a career lobbyist
who`s willing to say anything. I think Newt Gingrich as president will be
exactly George W. Bush, only with more ex-wives.

Epic win. One for our side.

Jesse has also been invited to return as a guest on Wednesday night!

Also another Kossack Joe Fionda did an interview on RT tv on 11-17-11 after we had just escaped being arrested. I shot a bit of the footage they used for the report.

Below are some photos from last night.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
