Droit du Seigneur, Koch-Style

For most people — well, non-Republicans for certain — funding a right-wing group with your billions and calling it “grass roots” would be a bit rich, and not just as a pun. But not for the Koch Brothers.

And hell, while we’re at it, for most people secretly and illegally dealing with the government of Iran is only for the Reagan Administration pre-whitewashing. But apparently, it is all good no matter how illegal for others, if you’re the Koch Brothers.

Good thing their name isn’t George Soros, or they’d be in real trouble.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
