Senate votes to strip ACORN of federal funding, 83-7.

I would like to have all of you read something that came to the MoeLane.com mailbag a few days ago, in response to this post.  I normally don’t bother posting these – I just pass around the funnier examples – but I decided that I’d save this one.

Just reminding you that you’re a piece of sh*t. No one cares about Acorn.

Ahem.  Hot Air reports:

Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE) introduced an amendment to the HUD and Transportation appropriation bill to strip ACORN of all federal funding.  A week ago, Johanns wouldn’t have gotten the amendment to the floor.  Today, however, after three straight days of BigGovernment.com’s video exposés of ACORN offices in Washington DC, New York City, and Baltimore offering assistance to pimping, tax evasion, and trafficking in underage Salvadorean girls, Johanns not only got his vote — but he got an impressive bipartisan showing.  The Senate passed the Johanns amendment 83-7.

The nay votes?

  • Dick Durbin (D-IL)
  • Roland Burris (D-IL)
  • Robert Casey (D-PA)
  • Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
  • Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
  • Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
  • Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

Well, admittedly we found at least seven nobodies that didn’t care about ACORN. I mean, look at that list. Not very impressive accomplishments from any of them, with the possible exception of Leahy’s ability to get into Batman movies.
