Eminence Grease for Most Evil Organization
It was a good year for the One Percent, if only because all years are good years for the One Percent, since they grade their wealth and power on the curve. What, you say? They got tripped up by a bunch of meddling hippies? Then tell us: What happened to that proposed minuscule tax hike? Right.
The nominees are: The Koch-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, which is behind every nasty piece of state legislation you’ve been hearing about all year; Bank of America, which won’t let a silly thing like legal requirements prevent it from foreclosing yer ass; The Nation’s Mayors and Selected University Administrators, who raised the practice of dislodging peaceful dirty hippies to a high art; Penn State, which proved that It Takes a College to cover up heinous sex crimes; and the U.S. House of Representatives, which must hate America, because we can’t think of any other explanation for their behavior.
And the winner is…
American Legislative Exchange Council. Scott Walker would be nothing without them. Plus, y’know, keeping old poor people from voting.
