Tisk tisk... more Republican hypocrisy.

It's too bad the nomination will end up coming down to Mr Perry or Mr Romney, isn't it folks?

Texas Gov. Rick Perry rails against Iran's "extremist, repressive ideology." He condemns any company who does business with "a terrorist state like Iran" for aiding a country that wants to kill American troops. And as governor, he told his state's biggest investment funds to divest from all companies with Iran ties; continuing such investments, he explained, was "investing in terrorism."

But now Perry, a top contender for the GOP presidential nomination, has an Iran problem: One of his most high-profile donors, Koch Industries for years did business with Iran, helping to grow the Iranian energy industry. Which means that at the same time he was slamming companies profiting off of business with Iran, Perry was pocketing campaign cash from a company doing just that.

Just a quick read through their wiki page makes my skin crawl: www.sourcewatch.org...

Koch is without a doubt an enemy to ANY living creature on Earth. Their global reach may make them the single worst company for the environment in the world. Perry is hardly the only politician to take money from them and I bet you can find both sides of the aisle in America taking in their donations. Hell, I bet they bribe politicians around the world to keep doing what they've done for nearly a century.
