Dead ACORN grows into zombie tree

Zombies are certainly popular these days, aren't they? And Republicans still like to scare themselves with pure fantasy, so it seems to be a match made in heaven.

From Indecision Forever:
Look, if ACORN wanted to avoid getting its corpse repeatedly kicked by the U.S. Congress, they should have killed some civilians in Iraq and renamed themselves Academi. Instead they're stuck in the darkest timeline:

March 22, 2010: ACORN, an umbrella organization of community organizers that provided lots of figurines for Glenn Beck's fear-diorama, announces it will disband. Later that year it does just that, closing its state affiliate offices and filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

December 5, 2012: Despite not existing, ACORN is blamed by 49% of Republicans for stealing the 2012 election.

Today: A short-term budget bill sponsored by House Republicans includes language to defund ACORN, which continues to not exist.

Do you wonder why we talk about the right-wing anti-reality bubble? Is there any clearer evidence that you live in a fantasy world than blaming a non-existent organization for everything you dislike?

Fox 'News,' Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and other leaders of the Republican Party specialize in keeping their ignorant and gullible supporters hysterical about non-existent threats. Yes, the government is coming for your guns, black people are coming for your money, and zombies are coming for your brain.

The joke's on them, though, because you don't have a brain, and the GOP has already seen to it that you don't have any money. You're still free to shoot yourself with your gun, though. Welcome to 'trickle-down' America.
