Skip to comments.Harry Reid, Koch Fiend
Posted on 03/11/2014 8:57:44 PM PDT by expat1000
Congrats to the New York Times for its scoop on the new Democratic strategy of lashing out at Charles and David Koch, libertarian philanthropists who, according to the Times, look genial enough.
What makes this years effort to villainize the Koch brothers a new strategy for Democrats is unclear, but this is the New York Times were talking about, so they must be on to something, especially considering their piece is a pretty transparent ripoff of this Buzzfeed article by Kate Nocera from less than a week ago.
Perhaps there is some nuanced distinction that sets Harry Reids latest bout of hysteria apart from the 2010 campaign, when Democrats ran furiously against the Koch brothers and got shellacked on Election Day, losing independents by 15 points. On the other hand, perhaps not.
Maybe its the clever new slogan: The G.O.P. is addicted to Koch. Its clever because Koch is pronounced coke, as in the drug cocaine, which is addicting. Thats pretty funny. Credit to Reids wife Landra Gould, who apparently came up with it.
And maybe that slogan will prove effective in Alaska, where Democrats are reportedly going to recycle the anti-Koch strategy in support of vulnerable incumbent Mark Begich. It may be harder to pull off in Arkansas, though, where Senator Mark Pryor (D) is struggling despite accepting thousands of dollars in un-American Koch money.
According to the Times, Democrats are convinced that Koch-bashing is a politically shrewd endeavor, and is grounded in Democratic-funded research. The Times editorial board has been beating this drum for weeks, denouncing the Koch brothers and their right-wing political zeppelin, and all but pleading with their readers to donate to cash-poor Democrats.

Pure communist Alinsky strateggy.
OP should ALWAYS point out that the unions always give far more in bribes than the Koch brothers do.
How about “Things go better with Koch.”
” Its clever because Koch is pronounced coke, as in the drug cocaine, which is addicting. Thats pretty funny. Credit to Reids wife Landra Gould, who apparently came up with it.”
Just occurred to little miss Las Vegas?
GOP should always point out....

HARRY: Money Mob & Influence (Youtube video 2:44)
So the Senate majority leader can slander private citizens, and nobody kicks him out of office and sues his crooked little ass off? What is wrong with this country?
A badge of honor to be personally attacked by a Leftist.
If I were the Koch brothers I would run ads highlighting Reid’s slander then documenting Reid’s involvement in shady land deals in Nevada. The Koch’s have the money to make the Democrats rue the day they hatched the plan to destroy them.
Harry’s wife is not immune from lawsuits.
