Mother of the Year

Reading the lefty blogs you might think she has a chance. The New York Post has the details:
A married mother of four from Florida ditched her family to become part of the raggedy mob in Zuccotti Park -- keeping the park clean by day and keeping herself warm at night with the help of a young waiter from Brooklyn. “I’m not planning on going home,” an unapologetic Stacey Hessler, 38, told The Post yesterday. Hessler has spoken with her family -- husband Curtiss, 42; son Peyton, 17; and daughters Kennedy 15, Sullivan, 13, and Veda, 7 -- just three times since leaving them. “Friends are taking care of them,” she said. Not everyone has supported her decision. “My mother told me I was being very selfish,” she admitted.
Obviously this is a pretty sad situation for the family. More amusing is the reaction of the lefty blogs. It's pretty hard to put enough lipstick on this pig to make it look good, but they're trying. Gothamist tries media criticism:
Speaking of tourists, the Post featured an out-of-towner today who has decided to make Zuccotti Park her semi-permanent home—and every graf in the story seems to scream "BAD MOM" reading between the lines.
That's funny; I didn't have to read between the lines to get that message. Gawker tries "She's not a bad mom, she's a good leftist":
Of course, it's not every banker's wife that has dreadlocks, so maybe Hessler is the sort of person who would always have been inclined to join a burgeoning nationwide left-leaning protest? A look at her Facebook profile, which reveals her to be an organic beekeeper who protests against genetically modified foods (and calls herself a "Pieceful War Rior"), suggests that she is.
So she abandoned the bees as well? Hat Tip: Memeorandum
