A kind word for ACORN

Posted By on Mon, Oct 27, 2008 at 12:01 PM

Ernie Dumas, writing in the Arkansas Leader, provides a little useful context on ACORN, which the Republican Party is busy trying to blame for the world's economic collapse. (Or, failing that, there's always Clinton to blame.) He also explains the bogus vote registration "scandal."

It is a measure of the fantastic weirdness of the political season that such baloney gets any currency outside the paranoid journals of the demented right. But the Acorn banking and voting fraud stories consume Fox News and they have made their way into respectable prints like the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. You can catch the drift by reading Mike Masterson’s persistently perverse column in the Democrat Gazette.
