In the case of Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, who has recently been heard to suggest that billionaire lefty George Soros is bankrolled by drug cartels, the rather disturbing answer is: Lyndon LaRouche. From our tanned, fit, and quite plainly reinvigorated colleague Hesiod (via Avedon Carol), this excerpt from a LaRouche tract entitled "Who Are the Criminals?":
Question 1: The market for cannabis, cocaine, heroin, and other drugs is totally unregulated and exclusively in the hands of ruthless criminals.
LaRouche: The latter generalization is largely true, on the condition that you intended to include as "ruthless criminals" such folk as George Soros and the head of the New York Stock Exchange [Richard Grasso]. However, these criminals do maintain a brutally tight control of the market."
