Who Funds The Lies?

I’m always amused at the regressive’s white hot hatred of George Soros. Conveniently, they seem to know nothing about Richard Mellon Scaife, Rupert Murdock, Roger Ailes, and now these guys:

The billionaire brothers who are waging a war against Obama.

Jane Mayer (one of my favorite writers) at the New Yorker has a lengthy look at the “accomplishments” of the brothers Koch, who are largely responsible for the funding of the “grassroots” Tea Party phenomenon.

Of note:

A Republican campaign consultant who has done research on behalf of Charles and David Koch said of the Tea Party, “The Koch brothers gave the money that founded it. It’s like they put the seeds in the ground. Then the rainstorm comes, and the frogs come out of the mud—and they’re our candidates!”

UPDATE: And these guys.

Meet the Wyly’s

UPDATE 2: Rachel Maddow is having Jane Mayer on tonight to discuss the Koch brothers.
