From The New Yorker, CNN via C&L, another shot at showing people that the teabaggers are bought and paid for by the Koch Brothers who have given more than a hundred million dollars to right-wing causes.:
CNN has finally, even belatedly, with the publication of Jane Mayer’s background piece in The New Yorker (COVERT OPERATIONS: The billionaire brothers who are waging a war against Obama) begun to acknowledge that the so-called “grassroots” Tea Party has some powerful and extremely wealthy backers (or as Matt Kibbe puts it, “patrons”).
Now, as a background piece, a 7-minute interview on weekend CNN isn’t going to be highly informative, and this is not Rachel Maddow or 60 Minutes. But it’s still worthwhile getting out there who really pulls the strings in American politics and who are the willing dupes. The Kochs will spend $45 million for the coming midterms alone, funneling the cash through such organizations as Americans for Prosperity. They have also given the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) another million, joining FOX News in that dubious distinction. In short, they are the ultimate power players within Republican ranks.

That name, Koch, should be on the lips of every liberal when discussing the astroturfing assholes known as Tea Partiers. The Koch’s are evil incarnate and a big part of the whole founding members of the rightwing nutter university group. They buy everyone and everything in their path and with nuts like Dick Armey, these fuckers can pull it off.
These men rape the earth and make billions doing it. Their father founded the John Birch Society. I don’t give a tinker’s damn how much they give to the Smithsonian or any other non-profit, non-political organization, they are pond scum because they lie to the public at large and they finance the extreme rightwing nutter factory. From The Progress Report:
Rich irony alert: Obama is not a liberal, you douche nozzles. Anything that makes America better, for the people, is viewed as a liberal agenda by these uber rich racists, environmental rapists and haters. Their agenda is to maintain the status quo for the Corporatocracy..it’s as simple and horrific as that.
