You don't know whether to laugh or cry...

A new Public Policy Polling survey shows finds that 49% of Republican voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama, as compared to 52% that thought ACORN stole the 2008 election, "a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore."

5. Yes, Virginia, there is an Acorn, in the hearts and minds of the crazies

throughout the land. And they will blame Acorn for everything from the case of syphilis they contracted to the election of any democrat to office.

6. Talk About Faith-Based Idiots

So they believe ACORN stole the election. Most likely based on the testaments coming from their high priests and priestess' like Limbaugh, Coulter, Malkin, Hannity and the rest.

These are probably the same people who believe the Earth is only 6,000 years old and that Jesus was a real person rather than a mythical character like Zeus or Poseidon.

24. Yes it does. Did anyone else read the PPP page? It's hilarious.

"The 39% of Americans with an opinion about Bowles/Simpson is only slightly higher than the 25% with one about Panetta/Burns, a mythical Clinton Chief of Staff/former western Republican Senator combo we conceived of to test how many people would say they had an opinion even about something that doesn't exist."

11. Republicans have ACORN on the brain

Someone actually posted on the Facebook page of Acorn Media (a distributor of British and Canadian DVDs) a couple of years ago, asking if they were related to ACORN, and if not, urging them to change their name. They responded that they'd had the name since 1979 and that all sorts of businesses use the word "Acorn" in their names.

"Here are two major newspaper accounts and a press release. Acorn was disbanded two years ago, and they are no longer in existence. Does this change your answer?"

I would be for over half of them it wouldn't, and that's really scary...

26. The power of media consolidation and agenda in ownersh. Fortunately, republican voters

represent, what, 35% of the people who vote? 49% of 35% is 17% of voters, about 10% of the nation?

Still....In addition to the 49%, I bet there are many more voters unsure, uncertain, confused, ignorant, willing to consider it, etc.. Confusion seems to be a goal of the propagandists too...even if they can't convince enough people that POTUS is a not citizen, they muddy the waters, make clear issues gray...generally piss on knowledge, honesty, and information.

If there were no FOX and the percentages of talk radio were evenly split between progressive, unbiased, and conservative (instead of the 90% conservative we have now)...you'd have to say that people would be better informed...and public discourse and democracy would be the better for it.

Propagandists on the public airwaves is an irresponsible and diminishing influence on democracy, IMHO. Shouldn't be allowed.
