Quick Thought About ACORN and the Media

I think what bothers me the most about this still-developing story is that we have a fake prostitute trying to expose the truth, while the real prostitutes in the media are trying to sandbag the story as much as possible.

Good point! On the other hand, now we know how Charlie Rangel got into such trouble with his taxes... he went to ACORN for advice.

Nobody cares. The story came out. We heard it. Time to move on. We don't care. Most of America thinks ACORN is a nut people. They just don't care. They did wrong. Government unanimously agreed to cut off funding. Justice served. Time to move on.

It's your obsession. Don't expect it to be everybody else's.

By my count, Lipiwitz, your comment above is your 23rd about the ACORN scandal this week--more than any other poster, and that's just on this blog. Who knows how many other blogs you've left similar comments on?

You've certainly addressed it more often than I have, and I suspect with more words.

Not your obsession?

Somehow, I don't buy that.

Here ya go...

And here is why we don't care...the truth"

"Though O'Keefe described himself as a progressive radical, not a conservative, he said he targeted ACORN for the same reasons that the political right does: its massive voter registration drives that turn out poor African Americans and Latinos against Republicans.

"Politicians are getting elected single-handedly due to this organization," he said. "No one was holding this organization accountable. No one in the media is putting pressure on them. We wanted to do a stunt and see what we could find."

Gotta love the kid's honesty. At least he has the balls to tell the truth compared to all the other cowards and their manufactured outrage over their illusive "values". This is why we don't care...we know the truth.

Fake or not. The only avowed pimp, prostitute and brothel designer in the film is O'Keefe and his 'actress'.

Acorn is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corp and by use of that non-profit entity not allowed to provide services for one competitor over another.

It's fun to watch Lipowitz become even more unhinged over something that doesn't matter to him. His weaseling makes as much sense as ACORN's repeatedly debunked excuses.

How many states are investigating them now? And their reaction is to conduct a sham "internal" audit with shills? That'll convince a lot of people everything is cleaned up!

We need more spokesweasel Scott Levenson!

ACORN is Obama's SS. These are the shock troops. When Obama declares to his witless minions "get in their faces" he is addressing ACORN, SEIU, MoveOn, the Obama for America crowd and of course your garden variety anti-American but ACORN/SEIU are the heavy troops; the finger-biters, the Van Jones green/reds. Their assault on our electoral system seen most closely by the Hillary PUMAs in the caucus states and the New Black Panther Party thuggery in PA were only the beginning. Their true goal was manipulation of the upcoming census to ensure that anti-Americans like Maxine Waters, Dennis Kucinich and a platoon of others predominate in our Legislature. The coup is postponed, for now. But these scum never rest. The money in your pocket, indeed all the product of your labors is like honey to them. They are determined to feast on you and yours in perpetuity. They will, like all Lefty/Progressive/Commie institutions, merely change their name and continue on with their same-old same-old if they may. Don't let it happen. Obama is the President of ACORN. Don't forget it. Ever.
