    This morning I am seeing banner ad after banner ad fom Koch's FreedomWorks "grass roots" organization pushing for this and that right-wing political crap. Why is TMC taking political ads, especially from the notorious Koch brothers?

    It's an adsense ad from google. It tracks you're own browser history and tries to match the ads to your interests. You've probably visited some sites that talk about the Koch brothers or something and google's algorithm matched the ad to you.
