    I suppose people adjust their nemesis to meet their own power. If the Fantastic Four lost their powers, they might downgrade their main nemesis from Dr. Doom to the Mole Man. The Republican Party is doing the same thing, they have fallen no far that the only nemesis that is a match for them is a small, obscure non-profit with a very small budget.

    But "GOP vs small, obscure non-profit" wouldn't be a very catchy cover for a comic book. So, they have to puff up their nemesis. ACORN has to be a great beast, controlling everything in the country through their vast network of agents, buying everyone off with mountains of evil George Soros money, and doing it all from their diamond-encrusted headquarters.

    The GOP made "community organizer" to be some sort of extreme epithet. But of course they hate them. Community Organizing is 1) bottom-up politics, they really hate that and 2) Civic Responsibility, they hate that as well.

    The wolfpack eats venison. The lone wolf eats mice.
