    Another great clip from Rachel that really pulls back the curtain. If the Kochs can’t win in Kansas, a state that has lost its mind in so many ways, they likely will not be to able to win in many other places. There is hope for us all yet.

      Do NOT underestimate those guys – they didn’t get & stay that rich by accident.
      The Tea Party was just a bunch of angry losers until the Kochs starting backing & organizing them.
      Now they’re angry losers in office.

        Actually, the Kochs DID get rich “by accident”—-Daddy left them a pile of money and a thriving business to build on. They rode the wave of cheap fossil fuel from there, and likely stayed rich because they hired good help and don’t give a rat’s rear end for anything but making more money.

        I do NOT underestimate them in terms of how basically evil and destructive they are to the country, the human race, and all living things on the planet. They have so much money that they can pump more into lobbying, bribing politicians, supreme court justices and climate scientists, and buying elections than the rest of the country put together.

        I would dispute that the earliest tea party was a bunch of angry losers. IMO, they were a bunch of sincere “populists” (for want of a better term) who quickly got scammed and taken over by Armey, Rove, and the Kochs. NOW they are angry losers, and the sad thing is that they don’t know who did it to them or understand whose foot soldiers they have become.

        Unfortunately, with all the gerrymandering and ALEC-ing that has gone on in the red states, they are going to be hard to dislodge, and are likely to be throwing their monkey wrenches into the machinery of government for a while.

        The good news is that they are tearing the Repugnant Party to pieces from the inside pit. The GOP Traveling Clown Circus 2016 Primary is beginning, and, as predicted, it is a race to the bottom. “Meltdown Karl” has begun the smear campaign on Hillary and the likely candidates are all vying to see who can come up with the best unelectable NON-platform. Whoever “wins” will likely be less electable than Romney was in 2012.

        The big news here in VA is that Eric Cantor, House GOP Whip and a frontrunner to be the next Speaker, has been brutally attacked by tea partiers—-lots of anger and shouting. Life is good.
