11. Republican leadership can't control their own masters: the Koch brothers and the conservative 1%

The republican leadership can't control this monster created by the teabaggers.


The creators of the teabaggers and the masters of the Republican party are the conservatives among the 1% (there are progressives and liberals among the 1% too). The Koch brothers and their ilk are pulling all the strings and McConnell and Boehner are well aware of it and not able to do much if anything about it.

There used to be talk about the "country club Republicans". They are sidelined almost as much as the working classes by the bubble boys of the 1% who have not had any empathy for real people for decades.
