I just received a new mailer from BarackObama.com. Even before the primaries are finished, Obama is apparently kicking off the campaign against his now-inevitable opponent: the Koch brothers.They're at it again, those Koch brothers. So what are they doing? Let Obama-Biden tell you. You may want to look away though, because it's really nefarious:
In just about 24 hours, Mitt Romney is headed to a hotel ballroom to give a speech sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, a front group founded and funded by the Koch brothers.
Those are the same Koch brothers whose business model is to make millions by jacking up prices at the pump, and who have bankrolled Tea Party extremism and committed $200 million to try to destroy President Obama before Election Day.
I have it on good authority that the Koch Brothers also throw turds in the punchbowl and were the men who shot Liberty Valance. Bet the weasels are twirling their Snidely Whiplash mustaches, too. They'll get you, my pretty, and your little Veep, too!
McCardle is interested in this, especially since we've never had a tag team president before:
I know it's customary to whine about the permanent election, but I confess, I'm excited to see this one unfold. Sure, it was historic to have our first black president--not to mention the first president who was a professor at my alma mater--and I don't mean to take anything away from that. But it would also be a pretty big landmark to have our first joint presidency.I gotta tell you -- it's not a sign of strength if your campaign has to go all Emmanuel Goldstein on a couple of plutocrat dudes who aren't even running for president, especially when the Obama campaign certainly has the full support of other plutocrats. But hey, it's hard to escape unless you have scapegoats.
