Mom Flies Plane Over S&P Headquarters: "You Should All Be Fired"

I'm not sure whether this woman is a folk hero from the Right, or the Left, or the vast Center, but she's certainly expressing a sentiment that many Americans are feeling. 

Lucy Nobbe, a financial broker and single mom of two ponied up about $900 to have a sign made and then flown by a small plane over lower Manhattan where the Standard & Poors headquarters resides. The banner read: "Thanks for the downgrade, you should all be fired." Her original target? Washington DC.

Watch this video about Nobbe from KSDK below.
