Jay Leno vs. ACORN

It seems that liberals are fans of the “pile on” philosophy of treatment for former friends…not that that’s new to any of us. Exhibit A – the following Jay Leno video (H/T Michelle Malkin)

I have to admit, I laughed at both the Congress reference and the commercial Jay played. Can you imagine Jay or any other late-nighter having done anything like this during last year’s election? Neither can I…

It’s unfortunate, though, that these jokes hit so close to reality in both cases.

CASE 1 – CONGRESS: Congress has gotten out of control. (tell me something I didn’t already know…) Exhibit B – Fox News had on their screen crawl yesterday that the sum total of taxpayer-funded travel for all Congresscritters and Senatedwellers was 6,901 days and 9.4 million dollars! AMAZING! Why can’t I get the taxpayers to fund my vacation by claiming it’s a fact-finding mission?

Exhibit C – How many laws do they expect us to follow that they have exempted themselves from? Hello Charlie Rangel!

Exhibit D – Bawney Fwank, Granny Nan Botox, Dingy Harry, and the list goes on…’nuff said about that.

CASE 2 – ACORN: Leno’s video emphasizes the diversity of ACORN’s unsavory behavior. We all know about the voter registration fraud, voter intimidation, and – for lack of a better term – working girl education program. I wouldn’t be surprised if they also advised drug dealers narcotics entrepreneurs on avoidance of certain penalties for their activities. So many employees fired, arrested, indicted and whatever else we don’t know about…

Exhibit E – Even the aforementioned corrupt (non-)Representatives and Senators were forced to stand up against funding ACORN – well, most of them anyway. 7 Senators and 75 Representatives didn’t have the (fill in the blank with the word of your choice – guts, cojones, or whatever) to see the writing on the political wall and stand up for what’s right. Let’s hope it comes back to haunt them in their next campaign.
