Despite their efforts, Teamsters get a C- in their attempt to imitate ACORN

They say that ‘imitation is the best form of flattery.’  However, what happens when the imitators do a lousy job at imitating?

The Teamsters are known for a lot of things, not the least of which are violence, corruption, underfunded pension plans and closed companies.  However, one of the things the Teamsters are not generally known for is being overly creative when trying to draw attention to a cause.  At least that was the case until recently when they tried to pull off their best ACORN imitation at an auto show in Washington, DC.

Here is what it looked like:

[Note the almost-embarrassed looks on the dancers’ faces, the out-of-step timing, as well as the lack of color-coordinated attire.]

Now here is what “real” creative demonstration looks like (a la ACORN):

[Note the color coordinated shirts, the on-time chants, as well as the look of almost-enthusiasm on the marchers’ faces.]

While we give the Teamsters high marks for their efforts, their delivery and costumes were lacking.  Therefore, we’ve got to give them a C- overall.

Perhaps next time, the Teamsters can hire ACORN.  We hear those nuts are always looking for more parties to crash.
