OPENING BID? THE AUCTION OF THE WHITEHOUSE ENTERS A NEW PHASE? =-O
Excerpted from Lowry, who says nothing new he hasn’t argued in tropes from stock NationalReview attempts to imitate WilliamF.Buckley:
” The libertarian paradise that they seek would put out of business the government affairs offices of major corporations and be the worst thing to happen to lobbyists who make a living on obscure but valuable changes in Washington’s byzantine tax and regulatory system.
The Kochs would be freer of government regulation — but so would everyone else.
The $889 million figure has shock value, although it’s not quite what it seems. It is inclusive of all the Koch spending, which is much more varied them simply launching TV ads and get-out-the-vote campaigns. It includes support for academic programs and think tanks in an effort to influence the intellectual climate beyond one election cycle.”
