Billionaire industrialist David Koch, who is helping steer millions of dollars to elect Mitt Romney and congressional Republicans, on Thursday told POLITICO he disagrees with the GOP’s stance on gay marriage and believes the U.S. needs to consider raising taxes to balance the budget.
…No, wait, we already knew this. More to the point: we don’t particularly care. I mean, I agree with Koch on the first point, but not the second (I’m also not inclined to get out of Afghanistan and Iraq just quite yet); and there are a bunch of people in the GOP who agree with Koch on the second, but not the first; and rather more who disagree with Koch on both. Guess what? Nobody’s getting run out of the Republican party over it*. Which you can tell irritates Politico; you can almost see them fuming about the fact that David Koch can support same-sex marriage and not have to spend any time in the stocks in response.
Which, honestly, should have been obvious – given that Darth Cheney himself supports SSM. And it probably was obvious, only Politico has worked out by now that the only way that Obama can win in November is to get the GOP fighting amongst themselves…

*Admittedly, we did do a purge a while back that may have had some effect on this.
