Here's another "Monday morning quarterbacking" piece on OWS written by 
Thomas Frank in the latest Baffler:

I just finished reading it and was astonished by Frank's facile likening 
of OWS to the Tea Party. But then again, he was an outspoken Obama voter 
in 2008 (and somewhat less so in 2012) as well as the author of "What's 
the Matter with Kansas", a book that fretted over the hegemonic position 
of the Republican Party gained through exploitation of "social issues". 
That lasted real long, didn't it...
