Silly Before Business

I've given up trying to figure Sen. Jeff Mullis (R-Chickamauga) out. Last year, I called him a peckerwood. Yesterday, I marvelled at his admission that transportation in this state should involve more than asphalt. Now, we find that he's sponsored a resolution pleading with the Internal Revenue Service to revoke the tax-exempt status of ACORN.
"An organization that chooses to undermine the integrity of our nation’s election process should not be entitled to tax exemption benefits,” Mullis said."
Let's ignore for a second that the only evidence of ACORN tearing at the fabric of the Republic is in the fever dreams of right wing radio. Let's also ignore the group's tax status is not a state issue.

Instead, can we ask Sen. Mullis to leave the silly behind and focus instead on the business of Georgia?

UPDATE: It appears ACORN doesn't even have tax exemp status. It's gone beyond laugher now.

AND ANOTHER UPDATE: "Jesus, this never ends", so sayeth the Ginger Flash. Welcome to the rabbit hole, Thomas. So a division of ACORN does have tax exempt status? Maybe? Who knows? Who the hell cares? Get on with the business of the state and leave the stirring of mud to others.

Asking a politician not to be a silly idiot? I would have figured you'd have learned better by now.
