For the Koch Brothers, There's No Such Thing as Good Publicity
Harry Reid made headlines two days ago when he called the Koch Brothers “un-American” and condemned them for using their inherited billions to “buy America.” He said:
“When you make billions of dollars a year you can be as immoral and dishonest as your money will allow you to be. It's too bad that they're trying to buy America, and it's time that the American people spoke out against this terrible dishonesty of these two brothers who are about as un-American as anyone that I can imagine.”
I think it's an understatement, but he's on the right track.
Tim Phillips, president of the Koch front group Americans For Prosperity, has already come to his puppet-masters' defense by by blasting Reid. Harry Reid hates Freedom, wants the terrorists to win, yada yada. Other rightwing useful idiots are sure to jump on the bandwagon.
Good. Bring it on.
The Koch Brothers have always kept a low profile, doing all of their bribing and election-rigging behind the scenes and staying off the public radar. Those days are over.
Every time a politician or pundit condemns Charles and David Koch — and every time a rightwing spokesperson comes to their defense — the Koch Brothers are being dragged further and further into the spotlight.
The man behind the curtain no longer has a curtain to hide behind.
