Rachel Maddow Defends ACORN

This whole ACORN mess breaks my heart. They've been out there doing some of the toughest grassroots political work imaginable for years and years, hiring from the neighborhoods, expanding the voting franchise, helping the neediest people in our country. And they have been the very convenient target of the racist right wing during all that time, for all the obvious reasons. It's painful to see the Democrats cut and run when the right finally gets some wingnut porn to run with.
ACORN is rightly thanking one of the few defenders they've had in the media, Rachel Maddow, whose work on this has been magnificent.
If you would like to thank her too, ACORN has created a page to do it, here.
