ACORN Holioed

My print column on the ACORN fiasco is up.

It should be noted that the Philadelphia office of ACORN did not fall for the secretly videoed pimp-and-prostitute-seeking-advice stunt. This is not amazing. What is amazing is that so many other ACORN offices across the country did.

Plus, a correction from the story, it's Tresa (not Trisa) Kaelke.

UPDATE: First Jon Stewart (as mentioned in the column) now Jay Leno makes fun of APORN, I mean, ACORN.

UPDATE II: The House votes overwhelmingly to cut ACORN's federal funding. But 75 house members voted against it. Guess how many were Democrats?

Considering how the Philadelphia office did, Casey made the right vote for a PA Senator.

I bet you could go into any FreedomWorks or tea party headquarters, pose as a white supremest, and get all the help you needed.

Perfect experiment for a sociology team of three students. Just don't get too drunk on egg nog...

Hey, off topic (Or in Dave's methods, changing the subject)

Diano, why do you continue to post anonymously? You're fooling no one, and if your 'anonymous' posts are getting through, what makes you think your "David Diano' posts won't? Don't be embarrassed to attach your name to your talking points, we all understand you don't think freely...
