I note that the article repeatedly refers to "stealth attacks" but does not seem to explain how the Kochs are at once so terribly effective and yet too incompetent, even with vast resources ,to keep their "stealth attacks" stealthy.

Putting brainwashing and fairness doctrine in the same sentence is very appropriate. Keep your political opponent from stating his side of the argument and you will win every argument. Every dictator who ever lived knows this fact well.

If the Kochs weren't a corporation they'd be in jail for stealing oil on Indians land. These criminals and their father before them have poured untold millions into the political process to change our country for the worse and convince poor republican working stiffs that taxes are bad, bad, bad. Sure, they're bad, bad, bad for the Kochs and others that want it all. These criminals invented the very tea party that's holding our country hostage right now. This is concentrated wealth in action and the Kochs aren't the only ones, just the biggest.

Have you ever read how the Kennedy's got their money? Your education is sadly lacking if you think the Koch Brothers are bad.
