ACORN, Your Package is Ready for Pick-Up

It's flabbergasting: even our present financial peril can't bring our representatives together for the good of the country. Even this they have to exploit to their own advantage. I'm referring to reports that ACORN, a partisan organization with a history of fraud, was slated to get 20% of any incoming funds from the bail-out deal. Lindsey Graham:

“And this deal that's on the table now is not a very good deal. Twenty percent of the money that should go to retire debt that will be created to solve this problem winds up in a housing organization called ACORN that is an absolute ill-run enterprise, and I can't believe we would take money away from debt retirement to put it in a housing program that doesn't work.”

And now there are reports that the dishonorable jackals who crafted this plan feel blindsided? Sheesh, I wish.

The next time Republicans gain a majority in congress, they need to drive a stake through the heart of ACORN.

***Update: This is ACORN ... tell me, how is it they get my tax money?
