Good thing I wasn’t drinking coffee when I read the Politico headline about Team Obama trying to run away from ACORN:
Choking. Up. With. Laughter.
Barack Obama can no more disown ACORN than he could disown his own shadow.
He IS ACORN. And ACORN is him. The “accountability” that White House flack Robert Gibbs says they take “extremely seriously” doesn’t extend to Team Obama itself — and the accountability they have evaded for pouring more than $800,000 into an ACORN front group for campaign advance work that was mysteriously re-classified as “get-out-the-vote” work.
As for the ACORN “advisory committee” that will “audit” the group’s illicit activities, I repeat:
The foxes guard the corrupted henhouse again.
