Poll question: About the Acorn sting - what do you think happened?
I watched the version on the Daily Show and I have to wonder what we were really seeing.
So , what do you think?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. While there certainly are some dumb people around, what I saw was
way too blatant to not be other than portrayed. How much was 'playing along', how much was them punking the punkers, and most importantly, how much was cut and edited out has yet to be determined.

2. Hard to tell...
I think that if they were "playing along," that at some point they would call the cops to report the "pimping," in order to teach the idiots a lesson about entrapment. Imagine explaining that to a judge?

"No your honor. I really don't want to set up a brothel with underage foreign prostitutes. I just wanted to see if I could entice those ACORN folks to do something stupid so I could expose how librul they are."
