Last night Jesse LaGreca appeared again on The Ed Show! This marks his third appearance on MSNBC and hope to see him as a regular nightly staple!

It might become a natural habit of mine to write these diaries after the fact but I am honored to be writing them in the first place. I was not able to go with Jesse to the studio last night as I was traveling for Thanksgiving festivities but I think he did an amazing job again and am proud to call him a friend. Finally having a progressive voice in the media is a beautiful and most welcome thing. Tonight Jesse got to take down five of the leading republicans as Ed asked him about specific comments the top right wing presidential candidates cough *hacks* about #OWS.

Ed had Jesse on to to discuss in part his diary that he posted on Dailykos entitled:

Some easy debate tips about OccupyWallStreet that you can use in the media or at Thanksgiving Dinner



Statement:     "Occupy Wall Street protesters should get a job"

Answer:    "We would love to as soon as Republicans stop filibustering job bills so they can blame President Obama on the bad economy George W. Bush left him. We Occupy for Accountability. Why are you afraid to talk about corporate accountability


Statement:    "Occupy Wall Street protesters are (insert distracting Right Wing talking point about socialism/anarchy/personal insults here)"

Answer:     "Don't change the subject. Conservatives who hated Martin Luther King Jr used to say the same thing about him."

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.
