36. Did Clarence Thomas bring Ginni to the Koch Conspiracy Fest?
Ginny is a Big Time Tea Bagger, in addition to being a world-class nutjob.



Emptywheel's moving the story:

As youve no doubt heard, the right wing conspiracy does exist. As the NYT reported the other day, the Koch brothers host semi-annual secret get-togethers to strategize with other rich conservatives and media people about how to advance their views.
    The participants in Aspen dined under the stars at the top of the gondola run on Aspen Mountain, and listened to Glenn Beck of Fox News in a session titled, Is America on the Road to Serfdom? (The title refers to a classic of Austrian economic thought that informs libertarian ideology, popularized by Mr. Beck on his show.)The participants included some of the nations wealthiest families and biggest names in finance: private equity and hedge fund executives like John Childs, Cliff Asness, Steve Schwarzman and Ken Griffin; Phil Anschutz, the entertainment and media mogul ranked by Forbes as the 34th-richest person in the country; Rich DeVos, the co-founder of Amway; Steve Bechtel of the giant construction firm; and Kenneth Langone of Home Depot.
Sure, weve known that rich people work like this for a while; this report simply provides documentation of it.

No wonder SCOTUS loves the psychotic corporations, let alone fascism. Certainly reads like a Here's Who's Who Owns Dat type crowd.

Thanks, malaise, for caring.
