The Unholy Acorn Mess

Fox News is going all-out in the war on Acorn, an organization operating in 100 U.S. cities that assists with low-income housing, voter registration and other community issues-and this business is crazy! There are now at least four undercover videos of that show Acorn staffers advising on illegal activities, giving the kind of salient advice I give friends all the time. (Hell yes, bury that money in your backyard! Obviously.) The Acorn staffers respond by saying that the undercover folks “weren’t even good actors.” In other news, Acorn will never get a dime of federal funding again. And meanwhile, they will be suing the shit out of Fox and the videomakers. But what will Obama be doing? He will be running away from Acorn like an anorexic, self-hating squirrel.
