Looks like Congress is moving fast to help the administration throw Acorn under the bus. The organization certainly seems to deserve it but the suddenness is breathtaking. And the two kids that made it happen have re-set the standard for citizen-activists of any political persuasion.
It was eventually bound to happen and probably sooner rather than later. Acorn as an organization has been such a volatile crew that it either has to be used continuously, or it has to be disappeared. There isn't any maintenance state for an outfit like this. If you breed and train attack dogs you either use them to attack things or you put them down. You can't keep 'em around as family pets or use them as seeing eye dogs.
The Acorn people should have read their history better.
