Let’s hear it for James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, they just saved the American taxpayer about $4 billion dollars. The U.S. Senate voted 83-7 to cut off funding for ACORN in light of its undeniable corruption. You can show people a paper trail, give them all kinds of evidence, but nobody acts until you dress up like a prostitute with a hidden camera.

Barack Obama 497

The Senate cutting off funding for ACORN is a huge victory in the current war on socialism and corruption. Imagine the irreparable damage that a group like ACORN would have done with access to that many federal dollars. Of course there were still 7 idiots who voted against the measure. I’ll get to them in a minute.

Now ACORN spokespeople are saying that the O’Keefe videos were forged in some way, the tapes have been dubbed over, laws are being violated, lawsuits are forthcoming. Yeah, I’m sure they are. ACORN is still trying to put on a brave face, saying that they really didn’t need our stinking money anyway.

In a statement that can only be read to be believed, Bertha Lewis, Chief Organizer (I thought that was Obama) says this:

We are their Willy Horton for 2009. We are the boogeyman for the right-wing and its echo chambers. If ACORN did not exist, the right-wing would have needed to create us in order to achieve their agenda, their missions, their ideal, retrograde America.

To read the complete, and utterly hilarious statement you can go here to the ACORN website. If not, you get the idea. Chief Organizer Bertha Lewis, Oh I know what it was, Obama is Organizer in Chief, I digress; Bertha Lewis says in essence the right-wing and Fox News have conspired against the largest black, Latino, and poor people group there is. Bunch of flippin’ racists.

She goes on to say that 10’s of millions were spent in an attempt to destroy said group. Ms. Lewis, Bertha, may I call you Bertha? Bertha, James O’Keefe didn’t spend millions of dollars trying to uncover ACORN for what it really is. I can’t speak for Fox, but I don’t think they have spent millions by simply covering the story. Something the MSM isn’t doing for the most part, and we know why.

With the Senate cutting funds, ACORN has no choice now but to cry foul. Racism will be the motive behind everything that’s been done to them. The census bureau is racist because they don’t want ACORN anywhere near the 2010 census. Fox News is racist and they hate poor people and want them to die because they’re just doing this because “healthcare is gaining traction”. Sorry, one more quote from Bertha.

Now that everybody and their brother are getting away from ACORN like Bertha with a rash, and with the Senate now voting to cut funds for ACORN, how much longer will it be before the Organizer in Chief throws them aside? By the way, the magnificent seven who didn’t vote to cut funds: Senators Burris (D-IL), Casey (D-PA), Durbin (D-IL), Gillibrand (D-NY), Leahy (D-VT), Sanders (I-VT), and Whitehouse (D-RI).
