Brotherly Love

Speaking to a friendly audience at a Washington area rally organized by the Koch Brothers funded astroturf political organization “Americans for Prosperity,” Herman Cain gets his shuck n’ jive on to proudly declare he’s the billionaire oil magnates’ “brother from another mother.”

According to the NYT, “as he made the statement, David H. Koch stood up and pumped his fists in the air, a big smile on his face.”

Of course, he was probably just joking about being a tool of the Koch Brothers. You know, like when he “joked” about wanting to lethally electrocute Mexicans at the border, releasing a completely harebrained and impractical tax plan, or pretending not to have the slightest clue that the Chinese have had nuclear weapons for the last 50 years.

Walker Punk’d

Embattled Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker gets duped by a prankster impersonating billionaire contributor David Koch. In the process, Walker unwittingly disclosed not only the strategic nature of his union-busting initiative, but a number of embarrassing tactical details as well.

You can listen to the entire conversation here (unfortunately they disabled embedding).

Update: Ian Murphy, Editor in Chief (and prankster) from the Buffalo Beast featured on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.
