Tha Playas Bawl

I'm not saying anybody out there with double-digit brain cells has ever believed that Fox News was fair and balanced. (Good gimmick for the dim-witted, though.) But if you needed another bit of proof that they aren't, take this whole ACORN-helping-hos story out. Out being the key word, because they're leaving out what happened when Wannabe Crack Reporters 1. and 2. came to Philadelphia.
Namely (from today's Daily News)...
Giles, in a post on the Web site, said she and O'Keefe had been driven by their belief that "ACORN is corrupt" and are on "a quest for truth unraveling the mystery of organized corruption."
But when the phony pimp and prostitute tag team visited ACORN's local office, on Broad Street near Parrish, on July 24, they were apparently shown the door.
Philadelphia ACORN president Carol Hemingway said in a statement on Monday that "after causing a major disturbance, they were asked to leave the office, and a police report was filed."
Hemingway e-mailed copies of the incident report to the news media. No charges were filed against O'Keefe or Giles, and their visit to the City of Brotherly Love has not been part of a series of reports aired on the Fox News Channel.

Note to lunatic conservatives unwilling to say what's really bothering them about America's White House these days: By all means, stay fixated on ACORN. It's not like 5 percent of your perceived enemies even knows what the group does. I mean, besides community activism and offering advice to pimps and hos when entrapped by wannabe investigative journalists.
Better hope we don't have a squad that's all, Let's go trick somebody into outting themselves as the next Mark Foley.
Or Mark Sanford.
Or Larry Craig.
Or (Insert conservative-values politician's name here).

**As I 140-characterized it: "Is giving $$ to faith-based initiatives with no proof of God more or less offensive than tax dollars for a group that talks to faux pimps?"
