Advantage: James O'Keefe! (#Occupyfail or Ultimately, Win?)

It wasn’t far — only two blocks from Zuccotti Park at 14 Wall St.
“I had been unemployed for so long, I thought why not?” said Postert, adding that she is in her 30s and has no background in finance or business.
Wall Street hiring someone who despises Republicans? Oh sure, like that'll ever happen. Next, you'll be telling me that gambling is going on at Rick's Cafe.
