Love It or Hate It

I remember watching two existential "philosophers" discussing the importance of absurdity.  One said the only thing more commonplace than air . . . was absurdity. 

That crossed my mind this morning as I watched CNBC discussing the "Occupy Wall Street" movement, that does seem to be growing.  When the Tea Party movement was born during the 2010 elections, the left wing was disgusted with the mindless chant about spending, ignoring the problem of entitlements.  Now, the right wing is disgusted with the mindless chant about fairness, ignoring the benefits of capitalism.

So, which is more absurd?
