Place your bets: How long until David Axelrod calls Gov. Scott Walker a Koch whore?

On the rare occasion the online Left can’t quite manage the mental contortions required to blame Bush for something, the Koch Brothers serve as a handy backup. When the Left is losing, anyone who disagrees is a Koch whore, a Koch sucker, or a slimy, slithering tentacle of the Kochtopus.

Walker is the bitch of the Koch whores#WalkerRecall

So, the Koch-sucker Walker is still in orifice. #SituationNormalAllFuckedUp

@roastydog Union-busting bastard Repub Gov. #Walker funded by #Kochtopus faces recall election. Important regardless of who replaces him.

Edgy, right?

But why should left-wing bloggers and Twitterers have all the fun? After Wisconsin voters rebuked Big Labor and fiscal insanity at the polls, David Axelrod wanted in on the action. And you know he means business because ALL CAPS.

WI recall: Billionaire Koch Bros ALONE gave Walker nearly double what Barrett raised IN TOTAL & lined up millions more.

— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) June 6, 2012

Riiiight. Because it couldn’t possibly be that Wisconsinites are fed up with job-killing progressive policies.

One itsy bitsy problem with Axelrod’s claim:

Axelrod blames the Kochs, links to a piece listing big donors, NONE OF WHOM ARE CHARLES OR DAVID KOCH

— Lachlan Markay (@lachlan) June 6, 2012


It’s also worth pointing out that Axelrod was so dizzy from all the spinning, it never occurred to him he was linking to an article about the “Billionaire Koch Bros” at Soros-supported Mother Jones.

@davidaxelrod Funny how U tweet about Koch bro donations but U R just fine with Soro's funding??? HYPOCRITE! #gop #teaparty #conservative

More reaction to Axelrod’s nuttery:

Distraught over impending trouncing in Nov, @davidaxelrod rambling incoherently about Koch bros. #Wisconsin #TCOT #freedom

Can someone explain to Obama's Chief Idiot (aka @davidaxelrod) that Americans For Prosperity does not equal "Koch Bros ALONE"? Thanks.

hey, @davidaxelrod have a Koch and a smile. 🙂

— Aaron Worthing (@AaronWorthing) June 6, 2012

.@davidaxelrod How abouts you list out the millions that unions spent in tangential efforts? That evens it out a bit.

— Emily Zanotti (@emzanotti) June 6, 2012

Hey @DavidAxelrod has Obama called you to console you on the loss of your mind? No? A tweet at least? #Crackselrod

Expect MSNBC talking heads to trumpet the Koch talking point.

Rachel @Maddow is reporting that the Koch brother have returned to bat form and flown back to Valhalla where they will slumber and feed.
