  •  There's A Certain Logic to the ACORN BS (6+ / 0-)

    ACORN is, if nothing else, a brilliant example of effective grassroots organizing. And the right understands that grassroots organizing by anyone other than themselves (and they've been brilliant at it for nearly half a century now) is one of the main obstacles to their own success.

    The stories about ACORN are of course nonsense. But their fear of ACORN is in a sense more appropriate than this post suggests.

      insures that the crazies don't get an actual grassroots effort going that they don't control. Bonus!
