The Social Poets: Funny Jon Stewart Lampoons Obama Solyndra Technology Scandal:
From Denny: Stewart pokes some fun at both Obama and his critics for "It's not easy being green."
Jon whines: "Does one failed green technology company discredit the idea of a green energy economy?"
"Of course not, but.... say, if in 1936 you spoke about the growing importance of air travel in front of the Hindenburg. Well, you'd be right about the future of air travel but you'd still be on f*cking fire! Oh, the stupidity."
Did Obama maybe just have the misfortune of betting on the wrong horse without evidence Solyndra was just a donkey? Uh, well, he and his political hacks, Axelrod and Plouffe, chose to ignore excellent advice that the business model was a stinker on this business. But hey, Team Obama went ahead and threw away $535 million of taxpayer money for - wait for it - a helluva a photo-op.
