Too bad. I was looking forward to watching the “99er squatting on a police car” float made entirely out of roses, marigolds and a few thousand torn-up deposit slips from Bank of America lead the parade while Miley Cyrus lip-synched Liberty Walk, but it won’t be happening:

(CNSNews.com) – Although an Occupy Wall Street protest group in Pasadena, Calif., tried to get a slot to march in the Rose Parade on Jan. 2, officials with the parade said no. The group now plans to march down the street behind a group of police cars that mark the end of the parade.

In November, the Occupy group announced its plans to “occupy” the parade, but the Pasadena Tournament of Roses provided a statement on Wednesday to CNSNews.com saying that protesters would “not be taking part in the Rose Parade” because only official entries, approved by the tournament well in advance of the event, can take part in the event.

Also, Lt. Plhunte Riddle of the Pasadena Police Department told CNSNews.com in a telephone interview: “The Tournament of Roses has the exclusive authority to issue permits for the entries in the parade. Occupy has not been issued a permit.”

They’re not giving up though.

Should OWS have any problem raising enough money to finance their own parade? The 25 richest “Occupy” backers are worth more than $4 billion. Come on, cough it up, supportive one-percenters — people are starting to think you’re all hypocrites!
