First They Came for ACORN

Interesting opinion piece by Jacques Servin and Igor Vamos in todays Washington Post.
We are the Yes Men, two guys who dress up as powerful businessmen, propose horrible things to audiences of actual powerful businesspeople and film them cheerfully applauding our most outrageous -- and often illegal -- ideas.
They've pulled some pretty funny scams on businessmen.

It was particularly interesting to visit the SurvivaBall website to see what that was all about. You do yourself a great diservice if you do not visit the SurvivaBall website. Be sure you exam the technical specifications and usage guide.

Below, they pose as DOW Chemical reps at a bankers conference.

ACORN may be the first to fall using these techniques, but it appears likely that these "sting" techniques could lead to government defunding of many large businesses - or maybe not. Large businesses donate large sums of money to Congress.
