Washington D.C.’s occupy malcontents were back in the district this week but few showed up to moan, groan, whine and complain. The protesters, you may recall, were evicted from their disgusting tent city in February. This Washington Examiner editorial sums it up:
The implications of Occupy DC’s transformation are profound. The group’s members belatedly discovered that even in protest-friendly Washington, there’s a limit to public tolerance for unruly take-it-to-the-streets political theater, especially when it drags on for months. In the end, most people remembered Occupy DC’s filthy, rat-infested tent city more than the anti-Wall Street message that the group was trying to send. By June, when the last remnants of the failed protest were finally torn down at McPherson Square, hardly anybody in the city was sorry to see them go.
