Yes, indeed, speaking of the Koch Brothers and hypocrisy: they funded Democratic candidates, and what thanks do they get? "The Koch Brothers are un-American."
All this talk about Koch-envy and Koch appeal, which is all quite entertaining, since the reproach of foolish comments means more glory for the victors!
|Embattled Dem US Senator Mark Pryor|
US Senator Mark Pryor (D-Arkansas), from the Arkansas Times:
Former Arkansas journalist Paul Barton, writing for Gannett newspapers in Washington, has contributed a story to the Baxter Bulletin about a rare Democrat — U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor — enjoying financial support from the billionaire Koch brothers' interests.
The Koch brothers, the Kansas industrialists known for lending their financial support to Tea Party Republicans, have given more campaign dollars recently to Democratic Sen. David Pryor than any other member of the Arkansas congressional delegation.
In fact, one would be hard-pressed to find a Democrat nationwide who receives more support from Koch Industries than the $35,000 that employees of the firm and its political action committee, Koch PAC, have given to Pryor since 2007.
Where's the outrage, Senator Reid? Why haven't you called out your colleague Mark Pryor, who has been Koched out?
Reid's hypocrisy, sadly, goes deeper than ignoring his colleagues' dependency. Of course, such blasted blather has gotten Senator Harry Reid in quite a lather -- check out his latest tweet making the Koch Brothers the one enemy that the Dems try to rally around:

Most of the response tweets want to know where Reid get his money.
Could it be true that Reid got Koch money once?
Point of fact, and point of order, YES! From a lobbyist working for Koch industries, specifically:

|Reid Smiles: He's On Koch|
And there's another Senate Dem leader who was sniffing Koch when no one was looking: Chuck Schumer.
Here's a letter from the New York senior senator, the guy with a bridge in Brooklyn he'd like to sell, whatever it takes to get anyone to donate or vote Dem in this terrible year getting worse for Obama-Reid-Pelosi. Addiction will take people to desperate, dire straits. Intervention!
|I need some Koch|
Let Me Sell You this Bridge. . .
Now, when someone is suffering from a mind-altering addiction, the first thing that the addicted person will do is deny then project the perversion onto someone else.
These Dems need an intervention. They need to admit that they are powerless over Koch, and it is making their life unmanageable. Perhaps their higher power, Big Government and their guru Barack Obama can restore them to sanity.
Then again, as we all know, like alcoholism, this pattern of lying and deceit billowing out of the US Senate's Democratic Majority is not a disease, nor a character defect, but rather a dedicated and desperate attempt to play down their five-six years of record failure, from Obamacare to foreign policy flaps, to these dessicated attacks on free speech. This un-America tyranny, now exposed as a rank hypocrisy, must end.
Oh, by the way, Democrats, most Americans have not even heard of the Koch Brothers. They are not addicted, like you!
Maybe Reid-Pryor-Schumer need to find a sponsor and work a program. Malibu is a great place to recover (or at least, get famous while trying to, a la Lindsey Lohan!)
