The right wing's war on ACORN has turned into a sideshow
Edited on Tue Sep-22-09 02:29 PM by ck4829
Gov. Tim Pawlenty jumped into the ACORN fray Wednesday by ordering a freeze on all state payments to the embattled community-organizer group.

But, as the Star Tribune reports, currently no state funds go to the group. ACORNs Kevin Whelan told the paper the organization has never gotten money from the state, and theres certainly not a dime to cut off right now.

Wow, Tim, isn't it your job to read and sign bills that reach your desk? How could you not know that? Maybe you should be spending a little less time daydreaming about being President, and a little more time actually governing your state. That kind of thing might look a little bad on your future aspirations.

1. The god-damned shame is that they get more press and more traction and more results from this shit
than our side does with real stories and facts.

It is very hard to fight (effectively) against odds like that, without resorting to tactics that some here look down their nose at.

You know, the effective ones.

2. Lol, they are like the Keystone Cops when it comes to
ACORN.

So afraid of those 'poor people' getting to vote as O'Keefe himself confessed as his reason for his now exposed, deceptive prank.
