ACORN’s $8.5 Gajillion

Not that I should be criticizing others for their shocking innumeracy after last weekend’s fantastic screw-up over election costs, but does Sean Hannity seriously not know the difference between a billion and a trillion? Or a million, for that matter…

As for the “$8.5 trillion” figure, it’s kind of funny that just last year House Republican Leader John Boehner stated that a “review of federal records shows ACORN affiliates have received at least $31 million in direct federal funding from American taxpayers over the past 10 years.”

Wow! How the heck did that amount suddenly morph into $8.5 trillion?

    Fun fact: Did you know that a trillion seconds is 32 thousand years? I thought I had a grip on that number, but that surprised me.

  4. Another fun fact: did you know that Sean Hannity is secretly a head of cabbage wearing a wig? Someone at FOX news is quite the ventriloquist.

    That being said, to most people paying attention to this story, though, it seems that ACORN may have bigger problems than a pair of poorly-scrutinized employees after all.

    I still don’t understand why Hannah Giles is still dressed like a hooker in that clip.

  6. What’s the matter, Ti? Was your money no good?
