Obama: An Acorn Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree

In an appearance in Indiana today, Barack Obama used an odd twist on a familiar expression. (Hat tip Ed Morrissey.)

I want to say thank you to Senator Evan Bayh, one of the best United States Senators that we have. And since you know that, uh, an acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree, you know that part of the reason he’s such a great Senator is because he came, uh, from a great political family, and Senator Birch Bayh is here, the legendary Senator who is back in Indiana…
An acorn? Not an apple?

He couldn't possible be thinking about ACORN for some reason, could he? Or for some other reason?

Well...the Obama Acorn certainly hasn't fallen far from the tree he helped create.
