cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
From little ACORNs, big problems grow.
It remains to be seen, of course, but the ACORN debacle, that seems to be the gift that keeps on giving, holds the potential for becoming a very large embarrassment for the Obama Administration.
This organization needs to be thoroughly investigated, people found to have engaged in criminal conduct need to be identified and prosecuted, and ACORN needs to cease to exist.
And, the parties behind ACORN need to brought under the intense scrutiny of daylight. The video examples are symptomatic of the real workings of ACORN. It is a virtual impossibility for an organization not to be as corrupt as it would seem when four separate and distinct offices were indicted by their own actions on national television.
Of course, Congress is working to appear as though it is revulsed by these actions, but still 75 members of the House of Representatives found excuses to not vote in favor of ending financial support.
Will this grow legs in spite of the dangers it represents for the party in power?
If it doesn't grow legs, that will be an ever bigger indictment of the Democrats than they might risk by moving vigorously to an investigation.
