Thanks for the shout-out, Sawz. But before anyone gets the idea that you and I are completely "on the same page," let me hasten to defend my friends at ACORN.
That bullshit trumped-up "documentary" video was a complete sham. That punk college-boy filmmaker brought his girlfriend into those offices with a story that she used to be a prostitiute, and that he was making it his personal mission to save her from her pimp(s), or whatever. Now, when confronted with this story, some of the ACORN workers may have given advice that stretched the law a little bit here and there, while of course most of them (not included in the final cut, of course) kept things strictly legal. But the falsehood that the ACORN folks were responding to a couple intent upon setting up a whorehouse operation ~ that was ALL fabricated in the editing room.
This has all been verified and, for what it's worth, published. Of course, retractions never get nearly the widespread publicity as the original lies that need to be retracted. And meanwhile, the Faux-News propaganda machine has been so successful in turning "ACORN" into a dirty word that no one, including a whole passel of chickenshit Democrats who should know better, would come to their defense.
Since then, young Mr. Hotshot Rightwing Filmmaker has been busted breaking into Senator Landrieu's office with some new chicanery in mind. The latest news is that he's getting off with a plea bargain, so the whole story will never come out in court.
