      i swear i saw this on an episode of The Simpsons...

      Bart: Lis!  Lis, come here, I found him!  I found Edgar Neubauer.
             [points at a tombstone: "Edgar Neubauer: Beloved husband and old
            grouch (1831-1909)"]
            Oh my God...the dead have risen and they're voting Republican.
      Lisa: [gasp] No, Bart, don't you see?  Dead people can't vote.
             [pulls out list, looks at another tombstone]
            Prudence Goodwyfe, died 1641.  She voted for Bob too.  [gasps] So
            did Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper.
             [walking] Even the pet cemetery voted for Bob, look!  Mr. and
            Mrs. Bananas, Humphrey Boa-Gart...oh, my poor dead kitty, please
            not you too...
             [checks list, sees "Snowball I"]
             [angry] All right, Bob, now it's personal!

    And now the video of Acorn workers offering advice on avoiding tax law and importing underage prostitutes from El Salvador has been made public. The criminal corruption of this group seems to go deeper and deeper with each revelation.

    The census bureau has now "severed all ties" with ACORN. It's all falling apart . . .

      Greed is one thing, voter fraud is just about as low as it gets.
