the gop base from an issue (like Occupy Wall Street) like race does. 30% of Americans do not know what to think of OWS. 43% like it. The rest don't like OWS. The GOP looked around for an issue to take out the OWS movement and could only come up with ACORN (black people). One more time. Doesn't seem to matter to them that ACORN does not exist.

2. Three and a half sentences in the subject line is pretty good.
Do you have a link, or more context, for your OP? What did you read and/or hear?
