Any minute now, Harry "Gollum" Reid might march to the Senate microphone and accuse the Koch brothers of hijacking the missing Malaysian airliner. Our worthless media would relay his charges, while looking politely away from the ongoing derangement of the little man from Nevada.
What a real media would do is hold him accountable, discredit him, and bleed his pathetic corpse dry, same as they didn't do when he invented the lie that Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years. But Reid is a powerful Democrat and the guardian of what’s left of Obama’s agenda. So, the unwritten script for Big Hairs and Big Pens is no follow up, no accountability. This guttersnipe of a politician still leads the US Senate and still makes news. And the lapdogs lap up his bile.
The Majority Leader is spearheading a vicious smear campaign against two private citizens, Charles and David Koch, whose sins are this: They are enormously successful businessmen, employing 60,000 well-paid Americans and they generously support political causes and candidates Reid opposes (as well as providing astonishing philanthropic support to things like hospitals and orchestras—David Koch’s last gift of $100 million to a hospital was protested by stooges from labor and the NAACP).
The Kochs are major backers of Americans for Prosperity, a group running powerful ads slamming Democrat Senate candidates with the lies and failures of Obamacare. Reid can’t have that.
