May 14, 2011- I wanted to go rogue and support the 'Noles.
Think of it: a mainstream-media Gator defending Florida State for taking money from the right-wing Koch brothers.
But I can't do it.
For those of you who don't watch MSNBC, Charles and David Koch play the roles of Satan and Satan in liberal theology.
They are the First Evil, the evil that makes other evil possible by funding it with the billions they make from their carbon-spewing industries.
They are behind the Cato Institute, the tea-party movement and the dismantling of public-employee unions.
Liberal paranoia about the Koch brothers is surpassed only by conservative paranoia about George Soros.
Last week, the St. Petersburg Times reported that that the Koch brothers' charity foundation had given Florida State $1.5 million to hire libertarian economic professors. The brothers "bought a rare commodity: the right to interfere in faculty hiring at a publicly funded university,'' reported the Times.
The left wing went wild.
