Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy When we tell you Koch Industries funds the Tea Party movement, this is what we mean:

“The Kochs are on a whole different level. There’s no one else who has spent this much money. The sheer dimension of it is what sets them apart. They have a pattern of lawbreaking, political manipulation, and obfuscation. I’ve been in Washington since Watergate, and I’ve never seen anything like it. They are the Standard Oil of our times.”
That’s Charles Lewis of the Center for Public Integrity, trying to give the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer a sense of how important Koch money has been recently in fueling right-wing American politics. We’re expecting Mayer on the show tonight. Awesomely. [The billionaire brothers who are waging a war against Obama]
