David and Charles Koch view politicians as "actors playing
out a script." Part of what they want to do with their billions
 is to "supply the themes and words for the scripts" by
influencing "the areas where policy ideas percolate
from: academia and think tanks." This is true, but only 
partially.  They also want to pour their money directly
into local elections, as they have in Wisconsin. If she were
still alive, Ayn Rand would doubtless write a novel about
the Koch brothers, entitled, Koch Blak.
