Is there no one who can tell Charles Koch that he’s become an embodiment of grandiosity? All that money, but no hireling to tell him that he’s arrived at self-parody? I remarked on his rapid descent Wednesday, of Koch’s over-the-top insistence that trying to take control of Cato was about defending ‘the rule of law.’
In a statement just released, Koch drapes himself in equally resplendent, bejeweled clothing, insisting on the dangers “if Cato’s leaders abandon the principles they are supposed to uphold or otherwise violate the core values of a free society.”
Charles (and presumably David, although Charles does most of the talking) Koch: defenders of the core values of a free society.
Washington, Lincoln, Koch – there you have it.
