ACORN anyone?

No, thanks. They may have taken over more than half of our nation, but they will never take over our brains.
ACORN has pimped out more people and more taxpayer's money than what is starting to surface now, thanks to the undercover work of James O’Keefe, 25, an independent filmmaker in the era of YouTube.
Media malpractice and double (and triple, and quadruple) standards?
Not anymore.
To paraphrase Andrew Breitbart, it has evolved to media complicity, and at some point, the grounds for legal action - if we haven't lost our Republic first - should become clear.
The thing here is that - as the non-coverage of the "astroturfed" 9/12 rally in DC last Saturday proved - this traditional media is not mainstream anymore. No wonder newspapers are sinking by the minute.
Any American with two working neurones knows by now that the web is the only place to look for different points of views that would allow you draw your own conclusions.
Bloggers, online magazines, countless people on the web have been exposing ACORN corruption and its questionable links to POTUS, ad nausea um, for quite a while now.
The vote 83-7 in the Senate to pull off federal money that ACORN was going to received is indeed, a first step. And the letter from the Census Bureau announcing they have pulled the plug on ACORN's community organizers to gather information for them next year was a second one. But only that, a first step after the red flag was too big for them ignore again.
However, there has to be another vote in the House in order to fully disengage ACORN for the federal budget - which means your paycheck and mine - and there we might see a whole different story.
Call me pessimistic, but I don't hold my breath. I guess we'll have to wait and see. The arguments that they were played around and the threats to suit have already come up to plate.
How weird, eh?
After all, whoever is against POTUS policies and friends, is just a racist astroturfer, right?
