The wealthy Republican donors, the Koch brothers, are upset by comments made by actor Zach Galifianakis. Galifianakis stars with Will Ferrell in a new comedy "The Campaign" that also includes characters known as the "Motch" brothers.
The Motch brothers in the movie are wealthy donors who attempt to manipulate the campaign for their personal benefit. Sounds an awful lot like David and Charles Koch, right? If what they do wasn't so despicable, it might actually be comical. The comedy is best left to the professionals, though. And the job of President is also best left to someone who is not a GOP puppet willing to say and do anything for the seat just to provide favors once in office to the crooks who got him there.
When asked about the Koch's in an interview about the new film, Galifianakis replied, "I disagree with everything they do. They are creepy and there is no way around that. It's not freedom what they are doing."
The Koch's then retaliated by attempting to criticize the actor's performance in one of the most successful comedies in recent years, "The Hangover, Part II." That's all they have? Of course. They cannot criticize him on his values because they are leaps and bounds above the "values" of the Koch brothers and their Republican chums.
The real-life Kochs just held a fundraiser for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney (aka GOP puppet mentioned above). The event was in Southampton last month. The area is home to some unscrupulous Wall Street moguls including David Ganek, accused of being on an insider trading call. He happens to live right next door to David Koch. How nice.
Howard Stern also lives nearby. Bet he was not invited to their little shin-dig. Although, it would have been really fun if he were. In fact, they should invite Howard Stern, Will Ferrell, and Zach Galifianakis to their next event. That should be newsworthy.
