Bombshell: Health insurance, banking, oil industries met with Koch, Chamber, Beck to plot 2010 election

MEMO: Health insurance, banking, oil industries met with Koch, Chamber, Glenn Beck to plot 2010 election
This does appear to meet the definition of "right-wing conspiracy".

This is too funny. You can't really believe this fantasy do you?

Hello Todd. There's an Oct 19 New York Times article covering similar territory (apparently the attendee list came from a new invitation) -
Secretive Republican Donors Are Planning Ahead

So I'm curious; which part is a fantasy? That they met in secret to discuss? The identities of the attendees?
Or that there've been decisions about what actions to take and talking points to use, that these folks signed off on?

Please lend me your eyes here; explain what you see.
(they are open, right?)

(on 2nd thought, I should turn that around, & ask which parts you find plausible. I'm curious about that too.)

And on third thought, I'd tone this wording down a little, if I had it to do over.
A little more info - found the 2006 Moore WSJ Koch interview piece that's referred to in the ClimateProgress post; it's reprinted here (link).

And on fourth thought, note to self: RTFM before deciding that your heraldry about it is overheated.
Here's the memo (pdf)
This one *is* worth reading - you too, Todd.

Pay special attention to Koch event attendee Ray Thompson of Semitool...
