Here are parts 2 and 3 of the San Bernadino ACORN tapes. That Tresa, she sure is a talker, huh? And so obviously in fear for her life from the lunatic pimp and ho - oh, wait, the story has changed - she was just 'playing along'.
Well, it took 4 videos to do it, but the hornet's nest of media have finally been roused. Charlie Gibson embarrassed himself, ACORN has suspended advising new clients until they can perform an 'independent review'. 'Cause, sure, they're trustworthy enough to police themselves.....
The White House is distancing themselves (and managing to subtly bring Bush into it, too, of course), MN Governor Pawlenty is ordering an investigation into state ties to ACORN, and the Attorney General of NY is also investigating.
As for the press, they are finally realizing there is a major story here and that they are embarrassing themselves, a la Charlie Gibson. And if they haven't realized that on their own, Jon Stewart of the Daily Show is happy to point it out to them. CBS is actually paying attention (although they are spinning it as the downfall of a noble organization, and those horrible kids are hurting thousands of people with their thoughtless act of conservative revenge), as is the Wall Street Journal and, believe it or not, the New York Times (following the same meme as CBS - ACORN is the victim, vast right-wing agenda, blah, blah, blah)! The L.A. Times actually calls for an ACORN housecleaning - although they manage to paint poor Obama as a man who's wide-eyed bi-partisan hopes are being dashed by those evil, evil conservatives.
Tonight's disclosure is being touted as being a little bit different from the other videos that have been released. Mike Flynn, Editor-in-Chief of BigGovernment.com is also saying there are more cities to come. I wonder if Chicago is one of them....
I will be tuning in to Hannity tonight at 9pm and will continue to update this story as things break.
Now that the Obama administration is distancing themselves from the organization they paid $832,000 to 'get out the vote', what do you think the odds are that down the road they will turn on him?
Stay tuned, and pass the popcorn!
