When an ACORN employee told misleading stories to a journalist she realized was trying to trap her on tape, Fox News' Gretchen Carlson preferred to believe the lies because they suit the conspiracy theory she's trying to peddle better than the actual facts.

In Fact, this short MediaMatters clip shows that a whole bunch of Faux's exploding heads espoused this 'story' as being factual: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wVZJdBCQxY

1. The damage is done....
ACORN can not be saved in the court of public opinion. It's over.

3. The fight for the creditability of ACORN.
No one will remember the one employee that could pick a UCLA law student from a pimp. Any effort to deflect or defend is counter productive.

5. ACORN will be secretly re-birthed under a new name - much like Blackwater has done

Learning lessons from the best can be fun.

7. That is what they need to do.
Dissolve ACORN and emerge as a new entity. The Repukes set their sights on ACORN a long time ago. They only win the battle if ACORN goes away permanently.

6. It's not about the facts.
It's about the smear.
