FBI and Republicans in "Unholy Alliance" to Stop ACORN and Obama: Of Course! It all Makes Sense Now

I might have known. It's all a plot. The FBI is investigating ACORN in all those states because the Republicans want McCain, Bush's defective evil clone, in the White House.

I made up the part about the defective evil clone. The rest, however, is straight from the Obama campaign's top lawyer, Bob Bauer.

Business, Politics, and Redistributing Property

I didn't think this blog would 'go political,' but then I didn't think that a presidential candidate would tell someone he thought was an aspiring small business owner that he wanted to "spread the wealth around."

A publicly-stated desire to "spread the wealth around" isn't quite the same as a declared intent to redistribute wealth, but it's disturbingly close. And taking property from people who are productive, giving it to a government bureaucracy, and hoping that the struggling poor benefit doesn't sound like a very good idea. It's been tried.

Obama and ACORN: Victims of a Conspiracy

According to Mr. Bauer, Republicans are plotting to " 'sow confusion and harass voters and complicate the process for millions of Americans.'

" 'What we're seeing is an unholy alliance of law enforcement and the ugliest form of partisan politics,' Bauer said. 'Nobody really expects thousands of Mickey Mouses or Tony Romos to show up at the poll and vote this fall.' "

Mickey Mouse and Tony Romos, no. Thousands of people whose Social Security numbers don't match the federal database, and/or who all have the same handwriting, yes.

A blog in The New York Times quotes from a letter that Mr. Bauer sent, asking for an investigation of this unholy alliance"

"I request that Special Prosecutor Dannehy's inquiry include a review of any involvement by Justice Department and White House officials in supporting the McCain-Palin campaign and the Republican National Committee ("RNC")'s systematic development and dissemination of unsupported, spurious allegations of vote fraud. It is highly likely that the very sort of politically motivated conduct identified in the Department's investigation to date, necessitating the appointment of a Special Prosecutor, is repeating itself, and for the same reason: unwarranted and politically motivated intervention in the upcoming election. An investigation must be entrusted to government officials who do not have an improper political motivation or a conflict of interest, either in fact or appearance."

The FBI, the Republicans, and at Least One Democrat, Plotting Against Legitimate Votes

One of those "unsupported, spurious allegations of vote fraud" involves 2,100 voter applications in Lake County. The Lake Country Election Board became suspicious when dead people, and one restaurant, showed up in the first 2,100 applications they got from ACORN. One of the Election Board members said were fraudulent. She added that whoever filed them broke the law. She's a Democrat.

An Election's Coming Up: Let's Think

If the stakes weren't so high, this year's American presidential election would be hilarious: assuming that you like "Monty Python's Flying Circus."

It looks like hordes of zombie voters are asking for absentee ballots. And, considering that it's ACORN helping and/or controlling them, the odds are that they'll vote for the delegate ACORN's supporting: Barack Obama.

I don't think that Mr. Obama's approach to foreign policy is what America needs right now, and I certainly don't think that his stated preference for taxing employers and others who make too much money is going to help people find jobs.

Whatever you decide, please: Think about your choice. Mr. Obama is good-looking and one of the best orators America's seen for years. But, there's more to being president than that.
