Sen. David Vitter (R-$$$), for who all his faults I think we can agree is one of the gilded institution’s most accomplished experts on the subject of what might make for a good and thoughtful whore, cannot lavish praise on the billionaire conservative-bankrolling Koch brothers thickly enough. But Lord knows he’ll try.
"I think the Koch Brothers are two of the most patriotic Americans in the history of the Earth," Vitter said. That line sparked applause from the audience. Later on during the town hall, Vitter heaped some more praise on the Koch brothers, which again, sparked applause.
"Maybe this is a good example because I’ll be honest with you, God Bless the Koch brothers," Vitter added. "They’re fighting for our freedoms."
Specifically, the freedom to own as many politicians as it is your God-given right to own, the freedom to alter the very climate of the planet if doing so will bring you a profit, and the freedom to breathe whatever the hell the invisible hand of the free market tells you you’ll breathe, you communist.
Tear down the Lincoln Monument, boys, and pave over Monticello. A new band of patriots are in town, and they are the greatest patriots in the history of the Earth.
