Since my mother is leading the New Orleans Tea Party, I hear about ACORN from time to time. to time. to time....
It gets mentioned a lot.
BUT FOR GOOD REASON.
So it's not news that they are a very corrupt organization that uses all our tax money for evil. Just about anyone involved in politics has seen at least one clip from Fox News unravelling all that. Most notably, a few weeks ago, the story broke about ACORN helping a man jump start his underage prostitution ring.
Wait, sorry, sorry, his "performance art" ring. My bad.
What may be news to a lot of Tea Party members, Fox News watchers, and Catholics is Jon Stewart's (the host of the Daily Show on Comedy Central) reaction. I was actually pleased.
Watch the September 15 show here.
In this show, Jon Stewart does nothing to defend ACORN (which I would have expected), but instead does what he does best - makes fun of them. AND he proves that Fox News is the only news network out there reliably showing what ACORN is doing to our community.
A+ to Jon Stewart.
