In a classic jumping the shark moment, the far right is claiming that the thugs from ACORN stole the election
a couple of districts over in NY-23:
“As evidence surfaces, we find out that reported results from election night were far from accurate. ACORN and the unions did their best to try and sway the results to Obamacare supporter Bill Owens," Hoffman wrote on his campaign site. "Rest assured, they will not succeed, and I am therefore revoking my statement of concession.”
This guy is officially on my Loon List.
UPDATE: It seems that 52% of all Republicans
think that ACORN stole the Presidential election. Oy. That means over half of GOPers are now on my Loon List.
I am beginning to theorize that the right wing lunacy that spawned against Bill Clinton only went slightly dormant during the Bush years and is back 3 or 4 times stronger. I really see the ACORN crap and Teabagger conspiracies no differently than the claims 15 years ago that Hillary killed Vince Foster. Insanity.
