McCain's ACORN

Marc Ambinder has more on McCain's involvedment with ACORN, including video.

Its clear that the Republicans are settling on using ACORN as a scapegoat, not only for the meltdown in the financial system, but also for what appears to be their imminent destruction at the polls in three weeks. Unfortunately, this scapegoating may just work as long as strong Democrats (hello Sen. Obama?) are unwilling to step forward and hit back.

I have no personal experience with ACORN, but from what I've read it sounds like they do good work helping low income neighborhoods organize and improve their condition. I guess that's good enough reason for the GOP to hate them.

(btw, I imagine that if McCain goes down to defeat, the GOP will use his involvement with ACRON as another explanation for his failure.)
