Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)
Koch whore defends johns.
Sen. David Vitter (R-$$$), for who all his faults I think we can agree is one of the gilded institution's most accomplished experts on the subject of what might make for a good and thoughtful whore, cannot lavish praise on the billionaire conservative-bankrolling Koch brothers thickly enough. But Lord knows he'll try.
"I think the Koch Brothers are two of the most patriotic Americans in the history of the Earth," Vitter said. That line sparked applause from the audience.

Later on during the town hall, Vitter heaped some more praise on the Koch brothers, which again, sparked applause.

"Maybe this is a good example because I'll be honest with you, God Bless the Koch brothers," Vitter added. "They're fighting for our freedoms."

Specifically, the freedom to own as many politicians as it is your God-given right to own, the freedom to alter the very climate of the planet if doing so will bring you a profit, and the freedom to breathe whatever the hell the invisible hand of the free market tells you you'll breathe, you communist.

Tear down the Lincoln Monument, boys, and pave over Monticello. A new band of patriots are in town, and they are the greatest patriots in the history of the Earth.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
