Texas Brawl: Pickens The Swift Boater vs Koch Brother Birchers

Here in Texas this is may be the political equivalent of King Kong versus Godzilla, I only pray that the Texas GOP is downtown Tokyo.

As reported by Politico:

"An increasingly bitter personal rift between billionaires T. Boone Pickens and Charles and David Koch has morphed into an expensive political battle that is testing the commitment of House Republicans to the tea party principles many of them have publicly embraced.

The fight centers on legislation backed by Pickens that would grant tax breaks to the natural gas industry, and it is forcing Republican members to choose sides between a traditionally GOP-allied industry and the free-market purism of many conservatives."

It's my playground, just like Tuna, Texas "Don't like it here?"


I've got a life so approval may take a day or two.
