ACORN guy's pimp outfit. (Last post on ACORN for awhile I hope)

At this point, I'm assuming that anyone who is saying that James O'Keefe looked like a realistic pimp hasn't actually watched the video carefully enough to see O'Keefe's outfit.

Luckily, he wore said outfit for a Fox and Friends interview. Here it is, though he wore big sunglasses and a hat in some of the videos and he's omitted them here, and I'm pretty sure he was wearing a wifebeater rather than a suit in at least one video*:

If you can look at the fake fur jacket alone and think anything but "Attendee at a Frat House Pimp and Ho party," then I am forced to believe you've never seen an actual tough guy.


*Hint to all potential fake pimps, that's a step in the right direction.

I'll be back. Now you've got the UU blogosphere on the spot to show their pimp knowledge.

Given that lots of UUs have done work with the poor, I doubt that outfit would fool many of them.

At the very least, I don't think any UUs are going to accuse me of watching too much CSI because I didn't believe it.

I'd never heard of ACORN, but they apparently fill conservatives with ire. Don't know who James O'Keeffe is, either. I don't really care.

(((Don't know who James O'Keeffe is, either. I don't really care.)))

Erm... OK.

Usually I'm kind of annoyed when a commenter says they don't know anything about the topic of my post and/or asks me a question that could be answered more quickly by them googling than by me explaining.*

But in those situations, the implication is that they want me to save them the trouble of looking it up by explaining it to them.

You've directly said you don't want to know about O'Keefe, so I'm off the hook here.

So I will just say that I hope you find another post on the Chaliceblog that DOES interest you.


*This is especially irksome when their question is actually answered in the post, the asker just hasn't read it carefully. That's not the case here, but it happens a lot.

Stanley Kurtz on Obama and ACORN.

It was ACORN and the New Party(NP) that got Obama started in Chicago. Check Bruce Bentley back in 1997.

Secondly, the NP's '96 Political Program has been enormously successful with 3 of 4 endorsed candidates winning electoral primaries. All four candidates attended the NP membership meeting on April 11th to express their gratitude. Danny Davis, winner in the 7th Congressional District, invited NPers to join his Campaign Steering Committee. Patricia Martin, who won the race for Judge in 7th Subcircuit Court, explained that due to the NP she was able to network and get experienced advice from progressives like Davis. Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration. The lone loser was Willie Delgado, in the 3rd Illinois House District. Although Delgado received 45% of the vote, he lost by only 800 votes. Delgado commented that it was due to the NP volunteers that he carried the 32nd Ward. Delgado emphasized that he will remain a visible community activist in Humbolt Park. He will conduct four Immigration workshops and encouraged NP activists to get involved.

ACORN's a presence in Chicago Democratic politics, as is SEIU, and Mayor Daley's Hispanic Democratic Organization except all the HDO guys in jail now.

Even when I don't know what's going on in the world, CC, I nonetheless enjoy reading your take on it. Apologies for my previous comment; I realize now that I wrote it so badly (hurriedly?) that it's pointless.

I'm sorry, I wrote that in a more harsh way than I should have.

Thanks, tho there's no offense taken. My comment reads really dumb. I don't know what I was thinking/doing.
