As much as everyone would like to believe this bus is being driven by a bunch of rubes who will (naturally) get their comeuppance, it just isn’t. There’s a boatload of money behind all these guys. But they aren’t just craven corporatists, although they are that. They are hardcore ideologues as well.
It’s fun to pretend, (as “The Fix” did last night on twitter) that this is the result of a grassroots uprising. But unless you think that the billionaires who are funding Freedomworks are just good ole boys down to the townhall speakin’ their minds, you’re on the wrong track.
