Was the Rick Santelli rant planted?

    It did seem to take hold a little too quickly being on the Drudge Report, Youtube etc. When I first saw it I thought whats the big deal Santelli is always ranting.

    Check this link out from The Big Picture


    Maybe it was planted, maybe a bunch of guys just jumped on it right away. It did seem to happen a little too fast though.

    Who give a flying f$%^ if it was planted, hatched, or born of a turkey baster.

    Uh, do left wing rants happen 'spontaneously"

    More distraction from the truth.

    So you think a left wing network like CNBC had a hand in starting the new conservative movement? LOL You must be kidding.

    I actually caught Santelli's "rant" live on TV that morning and I can tell you that it started as just a minor, but emotional statement. Then Joe Kernan said "they are like putty in your hands". THAT comment set Rick off! It was very REAL.
