John Fund's ACORN "hydra" conspiracy

Blog ››› ››› OLIVER WILLIS

The Wall Street Journal's John Fund is back at work attacking one of his favorite targets, ACORN, at this week's CPAC with an amusing bit of pretzel logic. Fund was discussing supposed congressional efforts to enact universal voter registration (Fund was previously forced to retract his claim that Rep. Barney Frank was pushing such legislation after Frank called Fund's report a "lie"), and explained that since nobody has heard of this proposal, that was great evidence of its existence.

That's right, since nobody is talking about it, this must mean it's true. This completely explains why the congressional plan to give Texas to the Martians is undoubtedly true. How do I know? Because nobody is talking about it!
