It’s Not News Unless the Teabaggers Care

The Shocking! discovery:

A Bloomberg Markets investigation has found that Koch Industries — in addition to being involved in improper payments to win business in Africa, India and the Middle East — has sold millions of dollars of petrochemical equipment to Iran, a country the U.S. identifies as a sponsor of global terrorism.

The Loophole:

Internal company documents show that the company made those sales through foreign subsidiaries, thwarting a U.S. trade ban.

So the teabagger-funding Koch Brothers are — Gasp! — evil. But we already knew that. It’ll certainly be fun watching their supplicants dance around the news, but unless wingnuts take up the cause, this ain’t goin’ nowhere.

Teabaggers have a great capacity for denial. They’ll just Koch block it from their system.

Hey Nojo, there are news reports of a number of shootings in San Diego today. What’s up?

I blame George Soros. And Lady Gaga.

@Dodgerblue: All Quiet at the Remote Office. Unless you count my violent client fantasies.

@nojo: LAT says someone was taking potshots at motorists on the 805.

@Dodgerblue: Ah. Don’t remember the last time I was up that way. I get my daily fix of schadenfreude listening to the afternoon traffic reports.

TJ/Okay. WTF? I thought, Rutger Hauer, a Hobo with a Shotgun, “Sure. Why not?”

And then I watched the trailer and was like, “Wow. A simulated orgasm will get you an NC-17, but this stuff is streaming away.” I think it was released on only two screens in the US, but still.
