OWS: I am the 99%…no…wait…the 98.5%….huh?…the 75%?…the 50%?….the 25%…: PCW Politics is War on P-SPAN- Hour 1
The PCW ‘American Heartland Tour’ continues in Athens, OH. Suave welcomes everyone to the show.
Magnum P.O.’d (R) w/Robyn Masters vs. Andy Riley (D) of the Bureaucrats w/Jordan Metzger (D)
Magnum returns to PCW and dispatches Riley. Great opening match and Magnum is his usual P.O.’d self. No help for the Bureaucrat as it seems a lot of people are P.O.’d with the government these days.
WINNER: Magnum P.O.’d @ 9:52
Suave in the ring with the members of the OWS (Occupy Wall Street): Nate, Shane, and Adam and asks them about their recent tour of rich people.
Shane tries to redirect the conversation away from the tour. He says the ‘I am the 99%’ movement is gaining strength all over the country. Adam adds that it’s unfair that CNN’s Piers Morgan tried to link Michael Moore as being part of the 1%.
Suave: “Does he make more than $343,927 per year?”
Adam repeated Moore’s talking point that the only reason he was able to earn that much money. and ride in plush jets and limos, was because it was ‘profitable for large corporations.’
Suave: “Yeah but, does Michael Moore make more than $343,927 per year?”
Shane again attempted to redirect the conversation away from Moore’s yearly income- rumored to be more than $343,927 per year…much more. He claims the OWS represents all those who’ve been disenfranchised by the 1%. Suave says he doesn’t agree with the OWS and he’s not one of the 1%- what does that make him? The .1%? That means the OWS needs to change their slogan to ‘I am the 98.9%.’
Adam and Shane sputter “Oh yeah?” and walk over to a group of people to ask them if they feel the same way. They do and the OWS has to redo their slogan again to ‘I am the 97.1%.’ Even angrier now, they stomp out of the building.
‘The Self Proclaimed Savior of the Middle Class’ Big Labor/James the Jeep Worker (D) w/Richard Trumka vs. Charlie Blackwell/Mike the Mechanic (I) vs. Paul Ryan’s Raiders: Nick Ray and Kevin Collins (R)
The American Heartland Party’s Charlie Blackwell and Mike the Mechanic reject the Republican and Democrat stranglehold on the PCW Political structure. But it’s Big Labor and James the Jeep Worker’s ties to Big Unions that takes center stage in this match. They ignore Blackwell and Mike and focus their energies on Paul Ryan (R-WI) and his Raiders.
…Big Labor hits a big neckbreaker and goes for the cover. Ray kicks out much to Trumka’s chagrin at ringside. Collins goes to the top rope but James the Jeep Worker crotches him. Big Labor superplexes him off the top rope and makes the cover. It’s a close two count. Back on his feet, Ray is fired up and…
The Longshoremen (D) hit the ring.
Ray gets waylaid by the Longshoremen and then there’s a commotion on the outside. It’s…
Joe the Plumber (R)! JTP hangs James over the top rope and then leaps off the apron slingshooting James the Jeep Worker backwards across the ring. He hits Ray head to head and knocks out the Paul Ryan Raider. Big Labor throws James out of the way and makes the cover- except Paul Ryan is arguing with the referee. Big Labor drives the point home with some hard knees to Ray. Trumka gets into the ring and delivers a big boot to Ray; then another big boot to Kevin Collins and sends him to the floor.
Joe the Plumber takes a swing at Big Labor and he scrambles back into the ring for a pin attempt to Ray. 1…2..No. Big Labor hits a knee to the stomach of Nick Ray. Big Labor whips Ray to the corner. One back elbow and a heel kick later, Big Labor steps aside and lets James the Jeep Worker hit a shining wizard like maneuver. Again, Big Labor capitalizes and makes the pin…1…2…NOPE! JTP put his foot on the ropes! RAY OUT OF NOWHERE with a crucifix then rolls down into a pin for 1…2..NO! SAVE by Trumka.
…back from break. Blackwell and Mike the Mechanic battle with the other two teams and all six are in the ring. Then…
Joe Biden (D) comes out with a mic and interrupts the match. Biden took aim at GOP targets from former PCW CEO George W. Bush to Florida’s Rick Scott and “obstructionist” Republicans and in between shouting out “We Can’t Wait!” implored Blackwell and Mike to drop the third party nonsense and come home to the Democrats.
Oh..and that “We Can’t Wait.”
Biden: “Just as we’re turning the corner on our economy, we can’t wait, these guys (Republicans) started playing roulette with the national debt, we can’t wait, playing brinkmanship. They didn’t want to just stop, we can’t wait, what we were doing. They wanted to undo everything, we can’t wait, we had done, I know one thing, we can’t wait, it doesn’t matter which it is. They’re standing, we can’t wait, in the way of progress.”
Suave: “Hmmm, I wonder what the underlying message here is?”
Corporate Might: Big Oil and Kirk Walstreit- Wall Street Market Analyst w/the Man Crush on ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit (R) walk out with Texas Tex and his golden money belt. Big Oil scoffs at Biden and asks if this is the same obstructionist GOP that continues to send bills to the Democrat controlled PCW Executive Committee where Harry Reid (R) won’t bring them to the floor for a vote?
Walstreit accuses Biden of sucking up to the alleged ‘I am the 99%-’
Suave: “I think it’s down to about 62% now.”
Walstreit accuses Biden of sucking up to the alleged ‘I am the whatever percent crowd is.’
Biden begins to respond and gets jumped from behind. Suave wonders who it is?
Jason Mattera of Human Events pushes Biden to the ground and starts hitting him with ‘ambush’ questions setting off a huge free for all that empties out both Republican and Democratic locker rooms. Even in the ring, Big Labor and James the Jeep Worker (D) and Paul Ryan and his Raiders (R) abandon the match and join the fray leaving Blackwell, Mike the Mechanic, Sheila the Secretary, and Joe the Plumber inside.
WINNER BY COUNT-OUT: Charlie Blackwell and Mike the Mechanic (I) @ 23:05
END OF HOUR ONE
