Delusional? Try flat crazy!

I've written a lot in the last year about how crazy the tallywhackers in the Republican Party can be.  I even created a label called Just Plain Crazy just to collect all of them in one place!

But today, I do believe they've set a new record.

Though ACORN has been shut down for some time, House Republicans are still trying to defund it. 
A provision in a short-term budget bill introduced by the House Appropriations Committee would cut funding to the group, which advocated for low-income families, but was stripped of all federal funding in 2009 and shut down in 2010.
I'd always figured that Republicans have a short memory, but I didn't realize that it was this short!

The Huffington Post reports: 
Nevertheless, Section 510 of the latest legislation, introduced by House Appropriations Chair Hal Rogers (R-Ky.), reads: “None of the funds made available in this Act may be distributed to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) or its subsidiaries or successors.”
If you never realized just how badly the Republicans hated ACORN, this should give you a clue.

A clue which, unfortunately, the Republicans seemed to have missed...
