Quote of the day - slush fund

"The DoE isn’t operating a stimulus program.  It’s running a slush fund for Democratic donors."

Ed Morrisey via HotAir.

It certainly looks that way doesn't it? Solyndra gets a fast-tracked loan while their major private investor is a Democratic / Obama donor.  Now we see a host of other "green" loans going to companies whose executives directly contributed funds to President Obama and top-level Congressional Democrats.

These "green" government loans aren't being based on tangibles like financial sustainability, they're being handed out based on who gave the most "green" to Democrats. They're pay-offs to Democratic donors. Isn't that exactly the kind of thing Obama said wouldn't happen in his Administration?
