One might think that with his fellow “community organizers” coming under another investigation for voter fraud, Barack Obama might avoid the mention of ACORN. Yet here he is in Indiana, butchering an aphorism in an attempt to pay homage to one of the most prominent political families in the state:

I want to say thank you to Senator Evan Bayh, one of the best United States Senators that we have. And since you know that, uh, an acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree, you know that part of the reason he’s such a great Senator is because he came, uh, from a great political family, and Senator Birch Bayh is here, the legendary Senator who is back in Indiana…

Well, usually one says, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” but who knows?  Maybe ACORN is on his mind today.  Maybe it should be on everyone’s minds today.
