The cult of victimology

You can almost hear their pudgy knees knocking from here. Poor little billionaire Koch brothers are oh so terrified by President Obama after he called them out on their superPAC funding.
A spokesman for the Koch brothers' lobbying firm said the billionaire brothers would not be "intimidated or silenced by the President's aides and his allies" after President Obama's reelection campaign announced earlier this week that they would encourage fundraising by a super-PAC supporting his campaign.

"We will exercise our First Amendment rights and not be intimidated or silenced by the President's aides and his allies who criticize private citizens that disagree with the President's policies," said Philip Ellender, president of Koch Companies Public Sector, in a statement.
Yes, Obama outraised the field in 2008, but that was then and it's a whole new game now.
More than half of itemized super PAC money this cycle has come from just 37 people, according to a an analysis of disclosure reports conducted by PIRG and Demos, two research firms.

And gifts of $1 million or more -- from just 15 donors -- make up 38% of itemized, individual super PAC donations.
You can bet the rent money the Kochs are in the latter group. Damn that mean old POTUS for fighting back against their money bombs and scaring them like that. [graphic via]

Yes fie on those dastardly dastards who criticize private citizens who don't go along with policy! I did notice how reluctant these turds were during the Bush debacle to criticize private citizens who objected to torture and fake wars and being spied on and sabotaged and arrested for wearing anti-Bush T-shirts. American hating, treasonous Commie Bastard Libtards though we were.

But what do you expect from people who mispronounce their own name so that it doesn't rhyme with Yuchh or even sound so German.

They really are grim bastards. Didn't realize it was German name.
