An arch-conservative political machine will be down one billionaire but have more clout than ever.

".. promising to spend an estimated 3 to 4 hundred million dollars during this fall’s midterm election."

The Koch brothers influence and power is such a dangerous thing. From the article:

Instead of just funding candidates, Charles set out to subsidize an ideology. He aimed to change the way Americans thought by creating and funding an interlocking array of libertarian think tanks, advocacy groups, and academic, legal, and other organizations. Even two years before his brother’s Presidential run, Charles declared, “Our movement must destroy the prevalent statist paradigm.”

Nearly forty years later, many of the Kochs’ policy preferences are now standard Republican orthodoxy, having been promoted from the fringes into the mainstream by the dozens of nonprofit organizations and candidates they funded. Small government, anti-tax, anti-regulatory, and pro-privatization policies, as well as skepticism regarding global warming, are commonplace.

I say, now if Charles would just go away…. Actually, their offspring will probably carry on their activities when both brothers are gone. Also, the article points out that their foundation wing, Americans for Prosperity, will no doubt carry on their torch indefinitely.

I guess David will progressively look more and more like he is biting lemons, and Charley's s**t-eatin' grin will get bigger and bigger.
