Fox News does my thinking for me.

It's easy to be an internet activist when all you need to do is hit the Tweet button on every Fox News article, including this one about the Occupy movement being a product of one of Fox's bĂȘtes noires, ACORN, the group of community organizers that right-wing activists already succeeded in destroying in late 2010.
It's easy for both the left and the right to stay in our own little ghettos on the internet and on Twitter, but sometimes it's important to cross the line and look at what lies are being repeated loudly and often by the other side. This is how absurdities like the birth certificate questions about Obama and the Swift Boat lies about John Kerry seem to spring out of nowhere fully formed.
