Whatever brain virus has gripped Harry Reid has now spread to other Democrats. They’re blaming the Koch brothers for anything and everything they can think of.

Here’s Al Gore, blaming the Koch brothers for opposition to his extreme global warming agenda. That’s Obama handler David Axelrod, nodding along with Gore.

Speaking for myself, I thought Al Gore was a free-range loon long before I’d ever heard of the Koch brothers.

Next up, here’s socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders blaming the Koch brothers for — I’m not making this up — the Veterans Administration scandal.

Speaking as a veteran, one thing you can always count on, in Republican and Democrat administrations, is that the VA is a poorly run mess. The current VA scandal is worse than most previous scandals. It might reflect on Gen. Shinseki’s lack of leadership (he wasn’t a particularly good general when he was on active duty imho), and it might also reflect on Barack Obama, since he put Shinseki atop the VA and hasn’t axed him after the scandal broke.

But it doesn’t reflect anything on the Koch brothers.

Unless, of course, you’re crazy.

Maybe the solution is to privatize the Veterans Administration - outsource what it does and create competition.

Al Gore. What a maroon. Global warming was all the rage until it turned out the climate wasn't really warming. Then they had to call it climate change. That works. Now every weather event is caused by climate change. Duh. We used to just call it weather. They can't predict tomorrow's weather, but "climate science" can somehow predict climate hundreds of year from now. Right.

The truth doesn't matter.

Democrats just need to come out in lockstep and shout it over and over and over and over and over again until it takes root in people's heads.

It works. And, completely backed up by a compliant media, it's a big part of why they win.

And the Koch Foundation is actually *funding* the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project: http://berkeleyearth.org/funders

Doesn't matter. Emmanuel Goldstein is a demon regardless of what he really did.

The comparisons of the Koch brothers to Emmanuel Goldstein are very apt.
"Nineteen Eighty-Four" was a warning, not a proposal.

Yep. It's a disgrace to our nation.

Al Gore is floundering for relevance. Ever since he sold out to oil money, the groups that used to support him (young environmentalists) now largely ignore him. Thus his new found zeal against capitalists (except when he does it).

He was born "sold out". Look into where his dad got their money.

Hint: it wasn't from raising tobacco.

I doubt you can be born "sold out." But Dad may well have set the example.

Ever since he sold out? You mean, ever since they found out that he was bought and paid for a long time ago?
