sponsorship list, was "david h. koch" supporting science and research. does that jerk have a good twin, or is he just trying to pretend he isn't a total jerk?

1. The Koch Foundation has supported Nova for years.

Doesn't mean the Kochs aren't assholes.

3. I'm glad some worthwhile projects are receiving some of their funds.

I'd take money from assholes any day.

4. Another form of lipstick for the pig.

He also supports the ballet, and got booed when he attended a while back. People are waking up.

5. Yet he supports a party that wants to defund public broadcasting

However, it's good that his foundation funds science education, which will undermine the wacky anti-science Repugnant party agenda. Especially awesome was that here in MI they showed James Balog Nova about melting ice fields, an absolutely awesome Nova.

It's kind of ironic that the Repugs are denying that global warming is happening and at the same time funding educational TV demonstrating that they're full of shit.

But, then again, Repugnants seem to have irony deficiency disorder. (Thank you, Eugenie Scott, for that one.)
