Koch Brothers, Grover Norquist Split On Ethanol Subsidies

Ethanol is one of those dodges to give farmers a higher price for corn----et­hanol is so environmen­tally absurd that it actually costs far more to make a gallon of ethanol than it costs for a BTU equivalent in any fossil fuel----ga­s, oil, you name it. When Bob Dole was Sen Majority Ldr, the joke in DC was that Bob was the "Senator from Archer Daniels Midland."

I actually admire the Koch brothers, much maligned by the usual suspects on the left, for opposing these subsidies, as a matter of principle, because they would make more money from the subsidized ethanol than without it. Since Soros has zero principles whatsoever [except his long-term goal of destroying the dollar as he did the pound in the early '90s], the Koch family comes out on top in this tug of war.

Norquist is starting to make more enemies than is wise or necessary. His Palestinia­n wife has caused him to rag on Israel to the extent that he's starting to sound a bit shrill. Calling a sitting GOP senator a liar is an impolitic way to conduct yourself up on Capitol Hill. Even if he were a Dem, that language would have been considered over the top.
