Thanks to Instapundit for linking to an excellent analysis of the ACORN scandals including this gem:

The really disturbing part is how in all three cases the managers of the Acorn offices don’t even bat an eye when the journalist asks about setting up a brothel. Further, they seem to have the logistics and legal tangles of using a brothel to fund a political career already well thought out. I don’t know about you, but if someone ask me how to run a brothel using minors and how to funnel that money into the a political campaign, I would have to stop and think about it for while. The fact that they have the answers already queued up and ready to go tells us one thing…… this is far from the first time they have provided this kind of “assistance”. They know the answers because they’ve been asked them before and they’ve answered them. Repeatedly.

My question is, how did the film makers know what questions to ask?  Did they have inside information from former workers who had left in disgust when they found out about the perversity of the place?  Had they tried other tacks of questions and never found a limit before (possible drug dealers, counterfeit records for illegals, etc.) so they were escalating until they found something to outrageous that they couldn’t fathom its being supported?  I look forward to their film, assuming that that the Peoples Republic of Maryland doesn’t throw them in the klink until Obama leaves office.

Including downloading, the transfer took two hours, six minutes and 57 seconds — the time it took for only four percent of the data to be transferred using a Telkom line.

That’s hilarious.

Obama heckled by GOP during speech: ‘You lie!’ – Yahoo! News

September 10, 2009

In an extraordinary breach of congressional decorum, a Republican lawmaker shouted “You lie” at President Barack Obama during his speech to Congress Wednesday.

While I sympathize with the sentiment, I object strenuously to the gentleman’s actions on several grounds.  First  it was unmannerly and uncivilized.  Actions like this are inappropriate at that level of government and should be left to the Democrats who have no shame.  Secondly, it will undoubtedly lead to an escalation of hostilities between members of the parties.  Conservatives need to be strong in their beliefs and firm in their conviction, but we must also maintain a higher standard of behavior than our opponents if we wish to see the level of discourse rise from the sewer of the Cynthia McKinneys of the world.  Finally and most importantly, it was tactically bad.  This is the sort of nonsense that can distract people from the real issues relating to the Democratic health scheme which need to be defeated.  The sycophants in the news media will play this on an endless loop while they beat the Republicans up one side and down the other over this and it will have an effect if done long enough.  The last thing that we need when we’re finally starting to make some headway in the debate is to have someone on our side introduce a distraction of this order.  Rep. Wilson, you should be ashamed of yourself.  I sincerely hope it is only your honor that has been damaged by your actions.
