Alec Baldwin OWS Video Gives Us a Dose of OWS “Double Huh?”

Alec Baldwin posted this video of his “too brief two hours at OWS”  foray into the bowels of the Occupy Wall Street protests in Zucotti park in New York last evening.  I am not sure if he stopped by Starbucks first, though.  I hope not.

I watched it and I can not figure it out.  He appears to be at #OWS in support of the protesters, yet if you listen to what he says, it’s pretty much opposite of  what most of the protesters have been shrieking.  Plus, I don’t know if he even knows what he said.

But the most important bit of information to be gleaned from this video is that, as he admits, he doesn’t appear to know too much about anything.
