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.

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. http://t.co/zTFMlmQf

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 http://t.co/ezCr5Klz

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

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

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.
