Rachel Maddow Points Out That James O'Keefe Is Maybe Not the Shining Exemplar of Integrity We All Took Him to Be
Here's liberalista Rachel Maddow defending ACORN — the evil empire that was torn asunder by James O'Keefe's valiant pimp-impersonation skills — by pointing out that they're not actually as evil as O'Keefe's heavily-edited videotapes would originally suggest…
Oh, liberals! Always hiding behind evidence to defend their fact-centric view of the world. Do you know who else knew facts? Sherlock Holmes. And that guy was a coke head. Ergo, all liberals are drug fiends. And would you want your daughter listening to the "facts" of a drug fiend?

Yaaawwwn. Just another sunny day in America, where we no longer have to fear the evil Marx-monster ACORN and its vote-stealing, Census-helping, pimp-enabling habits because OH MY GOD what is lurking in the shadows that just fell across our sunny, democratic day?
[A] report from California Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, includes details of a recent business transaction between ACORN and a California affiliate that broke away this year and changed its name in a bid to start anew.
"ACORN is attempting to rebrand itself without instituting real reforms or removing senior leadership figures that need to be held accountable for wrongdoing," Issa said in a press release. "These newly renamed organizations are like career criminals who adopt aliases without changing their criminal lifestyles."
The document, titled "Asset Transfer and License agreement" shows that Bertha Lewis, chief executive of ACORN, sold the group's assets to the newly formed Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) in exchange for cash.
ACCE has hired former ACORN employees, purchased the ACORN database of dues-paying members and bought a database with "e-mail contact information for approximately 16,202 potential contributors residing in California.

At last, something for conservatives to celebrate during National Health Care Reform-Having Week…
The community organizing group ACORN announced Monday it is closing its operations amid falling revenues.
The announcement came a day after the board of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now met and approved the steps required "to responsibly manage the process of bringing its operations to a close over the coming months," an ACORN statement read.
The group's remaining state affiliates and field offices will close by April 1, and a plan will be developed to pay its debts, the statement said.
You know what I'll miss most about ACORN? No, not the imaginary murders.
The cookies. I'll miss the delicious cookies.
As you may have heard, it was recently revealed that James O'Keefe had doctored those infamous ACORN videos. When he was the toast of the conservative media, O'Keefe had been aggressively championed by Sean Hannity, but the Fox host has been mum since the activist's exposure as a fraud. So on last night's Colbert Report, Stephen decided to sit down with some doctored video of Hannity and get to the bottom of things.
Personally, I'm just really glad to see a whore on Hannity's show again. I miss Alan Colmes.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.

Well, this is kind of interesting…
Alleging a plot to tamper with phones in Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu's office in the Hale Boggs Federal Building in downtown New Orleans, the FBI arrested four people Monday, including James O'Keefe…
James O'Keefe? Where have I heard that name before? Hmmmmm… James O'Keefe… James O'Keefe…
…a conservative filmmaker whose undercover videos at ACORN field offices severely damaged the advocacy group's credibility.
That's the guy!
So — let's just get this straight — the conservative guy who made his name by dressing up as a pimp to expose corruption in the ACORN community organization just got arrested for allegedly pulling a Watergate on a Democratic senator. Is that right?
I'm not sure how to respond to this. I think my best course of action is to quote the great Republican statesman from Iowa, William Boyd Allison…
