  •  Kochs are reality based (9+ / 0-)

    They understand how to use money to control -- where the levers of power are. They are not flailing around wildly like the politicians; they are laser-focussed on their goals. And their goals are not nearly as delusional as many people's; they're fascistic, but tethered to the possible. You do not hear the Koch machine, for example, asserting that imposing transvaginal ultrasounds will help gain support from women voters. They are followers of Machiavelli, not some delusional preacher of the Rapture.

    That's why I consider them far more dangerous, and am not convinced that the current debacle has damaged them at all. My sense is that they have enough sense to keep their powder dry, withdraw from the fray, and live to fight another day.

    •  Agreed. They are undamaged by this, for the most (1+ / 0-)

      part, and like previous losses are willing to regroup (always) and fight on in the ALEC state-level and national Teabagger trenches. VERY dangerous people.
