Koch Brothers are MAD!

A recent Rolling Stone investigative report, "Inside the Koch Brothers' Toxic Empire" http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/inside-the-koch-brothers-toxic... has the "Brothers" rolling mad and responded with a lengthy response letter, "Koch Industries Responds to Rolling Stone – And We Answer Back" http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/koch-industries-responds-to-ro...
Last year the Brothers stopped a PBS documentary about their family and this past year has spent millions on media commercials to improve their image.
From article:
"To fight this threat, the Kochs funded a "grassroots" uprising – one that foreshadowed the emergence, decades later, of the Tea Party. The effort was run through Citizens for a Sound Economy, to which the brothers had spent a decade giving nearly $8 million to create what David Koch called "a sales force" to communicate the brothers' political agenda through town hall meetings and anti-tax rallies designed to look like spontaneous demonstrations. In 1994, David Koch bragged that CSE's campaign "played a key role in defeating the administration's plans for a huge and cumbersome BTU tax."

I plan on reading the whole thing from both sides when I have time to digest it all. From what I've heard already, the Kochs do very little(as in zero) disputing and a whole lot of whining.

The attacks on the Koch bros have been the greatest gift for the Republicans this election cycle.

It's allowed us to nationalize the election by showing we need to have an alternative to President Obama and Harry Reid. That's working.

What's not working is demonizing private citizens. It didn't work for the GOP when they tried it in 2006 with George Soros and Warren Buffet. Apparently the Dems weren't paying attention.

So keep up the attacks Dems! While I initially thought the GOP might get control by 1 seat, maybe 2. I now think a 53-47 GOP Senate control is the most likely scenario, if not more.
