Spending Smart on Politics

Matt Bai: "I've never met David and Charles Koch, the conservative billionaires who have apparently set out to acquire our democracy, much as you or I might hope to purchase a timeshare. When I think of them, which isn't all that often, I tend to picture Dan Aykroyd and John Lithgow, who played industrialists called the 'Motch' brothers in a recent comedy called The Campaign, and whose main goal in the film was to relocate a Chinese sweatshop to North Carolina."

"But after taking a closer look at how they're spending this small part of their fortune, here's what I do know about the infamous Koch brothers: They are very, very smart when it comes to political investing. And the real problem for irate liberals is that their most avid contributors aren't."
