demonstrate a lack of understanding of our longstanding support of individual freedom, freedom of expression, and constitutional rights.

if they have such values then they should support the movie for exercising its individual freedoms, expressions and constitutional rights

oh, sorry, i forgot who we were talking about for a minute

"Phillip Ellender, Koch Industries' president for government affairs, issued a statement on the brothers' behalf, saying:

'Last we checked, the movie is a comedy. Now let me proceed to demonstrate how I totally miss that point I just made....'"

The arrogance is beyond belief. Not only do they want to manipulate the American government at all levels, in complete secrecy, they also want to be immune to any criticism when people wise up to their activities.

Go buy another university Economics department and STFU - you self-centered, arrogant, spineless disgraces to humanity.

Stop picking on the Koch boys. All they did was start up a bogus political party for right-wing nuts, bring the current administration to a standstill, and demonstrate a willingness to destroy the USA rather than submit to environmental regulations and pay their taxes. They have their rights, you know.

Sorry. I can't feel pity for men who take the money they inherited and try to change the political process to suit their needs.

It's too late for them to keep the public from finding out that they're assholes. That ship has sailed.

Many women stick with husbands that abuse them. When others tell them they are in abusive relationships they attack the one informing them instead of getting mad at the abuser. Pretty much many Republicans have that same co-dependent relationship with those in the GOP.

Let's see how much money they manage to piss away on losing an election. Then we'll talk.

Last we checked, the movie is a comedy. Maybe more to the point is that it's laughable to take political guidance or moral instruction from a guy who makes obscene gestures with a monkey on a bus in Bangkok

OMG.......they watched the movie. For some reason this makes me happy.
 
2012-08-08 03:33:41 PM  
Unsurprisingly, Galifianakis confirmed that the brothers, played in the movie by Dan Aykroyd and John Lithgow, are meant to be a stand-in for the real-life industrialists and right-wing political funders Charles and David Koch, and mentioned in a recent interview that he found the pair "creepy."

Had a good friend's wife turn me on to red wine and lemonade over ice a few weeks back.

Surprisingly good and refreshing... "Poor Man's Sangria".

Dan Aykroyd can be pretty creepy, but Lithgow is a pussycat.

Is it the same kind of chill that Chris Matthews gets whenever Obama speaks? Pathetic sheep.

More like when Rich Lowry thinks Sarah Palin is blinking directly and personally at him when she's on TV, and he pops a boner.

You don't obsess about people you consider buffoons, so clearly it's the former.

Not to mention the awesome-sauce that was the Trinity Killer on Dexter.

My guess is they are actually reptilian masters that reproduce throw a complex series of human baby raping and or consumption. At least, that is the only reason I can imagine you would waste such large generational wealth.

Nothing funny about those assholes. And they've got billions at their disposal.

I'd say they're a seriously dangerous political force, Lou. Not to be underestimated.

Bonus: they might actually get Romney into the White House.

I expect nothing less than an all out illegal political ad assault the 3 days before the election by the Koch Bros.
