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.
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.

@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.
