Ana Marie Cox Deflates A Week's Worth of Putz and Corner Posts.

Like so:

With three weeks to go, and absentee voting well underway, both campaigns -- and outside group -- have been asking voters and the media to look at the possibility of election fraud. At McCain rallies, supporters intone "ACORN" and "FBI! FBI!" with increasing regularity. And, it's true, ACORN -- a predominately left-leaning group with (limited) ties to Obama -- has a particularly spotty record when it comes to voter registration. The problem is that attempting to register voters improperly or fraudulently (under names like "Mickey Mouse" or maybe a local restaurant) only seems to be beneficial to Democrats. To be actually beneficial, Mickey Mouse (or the restaurant) would have to show up to vote.
