I’ll bet George Soros’ nightmares these days are filled with computers. Not money-grubbing Brazilian soap opera stars with crafty lawyers. Just computers. Or maybe just one really powerful database that could prove mission control for a conservative political fusillade that could lay waste to Soros’ evil plans for America and the world. Sorry, George. Sleep tight. The Koch Brothers send their very best. No, really.
The mysterious and elusive conservative billionaires, Charles and David Koch (worth an estimated $25-billion, EACH, compared to Soros at $22-billion) have plunked down some serious wealth in assembling a database of conservative contacts rivaling any ever seen in America’s political process.
The Super Machine draws connections from a multitude of conservative organizations, providing a master list of voters almost guaranteed to be voting against the incumbent President of the United States. Voters who will turn out. Voters who will work phones. Voters who will become willing cogs in an all-encompassing ground game that will put the GOP’s own resources to shame. It’s all part of the plan.
At a recent meeting of like-minded and similarly wealthy held in Vail, Colorado, the rarified attendees in the rarified Rocky Mountain air agreed on one thing and one thing alone. November 2012 is an election for the very soul of America. It’s a race for all the marbles. Nothing can be left to chance. (As many times as we conservative pundits have repeated that line, you’d think people would pay attention. Maybe someone is.)
In the weeks and months that followed, those conservative heroes with an embarrassment of riches devised a plan to unify the resources of the ‘Silent Majority,’ with a technological lunge never before seen on earth. Space Shuttles are launched with fewer Terra-Bytes. Seriously.
While it’s questionable whether average Americans will be aware of, or fully appreciate the value of such a weapon in the grappling match to come, conservatives from sea to shining sea should say a prayer of thanks that two ultra-wealthy men of character have been duly ordained as the counterbalance to a certain Hungarian overlord with comparably outsized pockets.
Control of the HUMAN race, you might say. Conservatives now have full launch capability on a system that could just make the difference in who gets to take the marbles home.
Sleep tight, George.
