    George Soros Gives Little Lee Fang His Comeuppance

    One of the most genuinely stupid and embarrassing things to ever appear at Think Progress — and that’s saying something — was a recent supposed takedown of the evil Koch Brothers by their supposedly nemesis, Little Lee Fang the ankle biting blogger.
