ACORN is changing their name to Community Organizations International.
ACORN drops tarnished name and moves to silence critics
Sort of like changing “Global Warming” to “Climate Change.” Or “Liberal” to “Progressive.” Or “Terrorism” to “Man Caused Disaster.” Or “Extraordinary Rendition” to “Friends Helping Friends Executive Order.”
New brand. Get rid of the baggage.
I think they missed a bet with BHOGUS, myself. The GUS could be Gutting the United States, for example. A little work might improve that.
If they had to have COI, though, they could have picked from several better expansions –
- Conflict Of Interest
- Confluence Of Idiotarians
- Congress Of Indigents
- Chicago Oligarchy Imperative
or my personal favorite:
- Comrade Obama Internationale
And if they’d asked me I could have saved them some money on redoing the signs. Community Organizations Respecting Nothing only requires selling a vowel. It stays in the vegetable kingdom too, instead of rhyming with pampered fish.
Well, here’s to publicizing the fact that ACORN is becoming COI. A nut by any other name…
