New Koch firm hand picking "electable" candidates

The "Mr. Burns" brothers strike again...

A new political consulting firm with deep ties to the Koch brothers has quietly set up shop in Arlington, Virginia. Its mission: to prevent future Todd Akins and Richard Mourdocks from tanking the Republican Party's electoral prospects. The firm, named Aegis Strategic, is run by a former top executive at Charles and David Koch's flagship advocacy group, Americans for Prosperity, and it was founded with the blessing of the brothers' political advisers

If the end result is less idiots like Akins and Mourdocks getting past the primary, then I'm going to call it a win all around.

If the end results are idiots like Akins and Mourdocks who've been trained to keep their mouths shut like proper puppets then not so much.

Akins and Mourdocks broke their rules.

They want people who will do exactly as they say. No more, and no less.

What sno' said. The doofus' only defect (in the eyes of the Korporate Klass) was that they spoke their minds out loud, in public. The having-regressive-ideas is irrelevant.
