Fake Outraged Republicans and Cowering Spineless Democrats

Digby at Hullabaloo says:
This whole ACORN mess breaks my heart. They've been out there doing some of the toughest grassroots political work imaginable for years and years, hiring from the neighborhoods, expanding the voting franchise, helping the neediest people in our country. And they have been the very convenient target of the racist right wing during all that time, for all the obvious reasons. It's painful to see the Democrats cut and run when the right finally gets some wingnut porn to run with.

ACORN is rightly thanking one of the few defenders they've had in the media, Rachel Maddow, whose work on this has been magnificent.

If you would like to thank her too, ACORN has created a page to do it, here.
Jeremy Scahill, author of "Blackwater" succinctly explained to Rachel that the legislation that Congress has enacted against Acorn is merely "politicial and not about upholding the law."

If upholding the law was even remotely involved in the "Defund Acorn Act" then the Republicans would be joining the Democrats in their outrage against the defense contractors Blackwater, KBR, Amor Group, DynCorp, Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin.
