Now this is funny.

A major donor to the far-left group ACORN and its affiliates is…(drumroll)…the Robin Hood Foundation.

Bada bing!

The foundation has given ACORN $821,000 consisting of a $456,000 grant in 2003 and a $365,000 grant in 2004.

POST SCRIPT a few minutes later:

Fun facts: The Soros Fund Charitable Foundation gave the Robin Hood Foundation a $9,859,453 community development grant in 2000. The Robin Hood board includes Tom Brokaw of NBC News, Marian Wright Edelman (president, Children’s Defense Fund), Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, and actress Gwyneth Paltrow.
