The Koch Brothers Buy Elections. Wait… What?

In Uncategorized on February 28, 2011 at 7:23 pm

The headlines read like a crazy conspiracy theorist’s photocopied manifesto:

Billionaire Brothers’ Money Plays Role in Wisconsin Dispute

The Brothers Koch: Rich, Political And Playing To Win

The billionaire Koch brothers: Tea Party puppetmasters?

I found this over at The Looking Spoon and I feel really bad that I didn’t pick this up myself, it’s so obvious. Here’s what an accurate headline would read:

Union Political Contributions outstrip Koch Industries 50:1

Who’s the puppet master now?

Honestly, if you’re not reading The Looking Spoon every day, you should.
