have a piece up at the main page
about the new attention that the libertarian Koch brothers are getting from Democrats and the liberal media* for funding the think tanks and organizations that provide firepower for the Tea Party movement. My suggestion: Time for the Kochs to take more credit for the movement (instead of firing off press releases that deny it) and libertarians and Tea Party groups to take more pride in the relationship (instead of scoffing whenever it's pointed out).
*I use "liberal media" to refer specifically to liberal publications, like Frank Rich's column.
