Open Thread

by Mary

The Sideshow links a very interesting piece by Barry Ritholtz who had noticed that the spontaneous outburst by Rick Santelli appeared FAUX when it happened. Now it appears the "grass-roots" push was yet another astro-turf campaign for the extremely wealthy, extremely reactionary Koch family and their wealthy friends who have every reason to make sure Obama fails in raising their taxes. No wonder Obama came out punching today.

Update: Well, as Barry Ritholtz says, the reporters couldn't back up their story.
