Another convention story the right isn’t promoting

As Politico reported last evening, one of the Koch brothers has come out against some important planks in current conservative orthodoxy, including opposition to gay marriage.

Now if he could just convince his buddy Art Pope to do likewise, we might actually make some progress here in North Carolina.

    As a member of the right, I would like the left to stop demonizing the Koch Brothers now that they see he hold positions that they agree with. In fact, I demand it.

    I’m not willing to give people credit for these half-hearted stances.

    I believe in protecting the environment, but I voted republican.
    I believe in a women’s right to choose, but I voted republican
    I believe support gay marriage, but I gave millions of dollars to fund individuals and organizations working tirelessly to prevent it.

    Koch basically said it in the article. His primary consideration is his business interests. Everything else is irrelevant. More than anything, he’s probably just trying to talk the party back from the edge before they fall off.
