| by Michael Allen

Occupy Wall Street members protested Rick Santorum as he tried to deliver a speech at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma, Washington on Monday night (video below).

Santorum tried to condemn the state’s new same-sex marriage law and the Ninth Circuit’s ruling against Proposition 8 in California, but was repeatedly interrupted by protesters yelling: “We are the 99 percent.”

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

Santorum told the protesters to “go out and get a job."

A scuffle soon broke out in the crowd and police shoved two men to the ground, tased and arrested them. Santorum briefly paused in his remarks and said, “Let’s give a hand to our men and women in uniform. It’s not easy.”
