Iran Business Partners: Cheney & Reagan, not Just the Koch BrothersNothing will come of it. Koch-backed politicians will go on rattling sabers at Iran even while they find ways to do business with it. They will go on denying global climate change, and denying that breathing gasoline fumes is bad for you. If they do get up a war on Iran, they’ll make money on that, too. No wonder so many conservatives hate George Soros.

Haha. Awesome. I figured it was either that or you had recently watched Episode IV, since as far as I can tell *all* the lyrics are direct quotes from Star Wars. [For some reason I just typed "Wards" three times before I managed to convince my fingers I didn't need the d in it...]
