ACORN, the far left group made famous for registering movie stars like Mickey Mouse to vote, is organizing counter-protests for the planed Tea Parties scheduled on Wednesday.
I always assumed that spokespeople for organizations were polished and well spoken. These are the quotes from their spokesman, Brian Kettenring, on the planned protests.
"This is the first we've heard of these so-called 'tea parties.' And, frankly, a bunch of small get-togethers by fringe conservative activists dedicated to simply saying 'no' is of little interest to us,"
"At this point, it would not surprise us to wake up tomorrow and see conservative media fingering ACORN's 500,000 member families as the principle cause of global climate change,"
The first quote. There has been talk of this for over a freakin month and it's his job to keep up with politics. Then we have the whole "fringe conservatives". To ACORN this evidently means anyone right of them since the Tea Parties are being attended by independents and Democrats along with Republicans.
As far as the second quote, what the Hell do you say about this? I thought to leftists, humans were the cause of global warming?
Quite frankly, if this is the smartest and most well spoken of the group, these people are more retarded than I thought.
I do have to give him one thing though. Considering that I browsed CBS, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC's sites at the time of writing this and none of them were covering the Tea Parties either on their front page or politics page, maybe he really never has heard of it. Although all of the sites had room to cover the breaking news of the Obama's dog.
