Republicans? Hypocrites? I repeat myself. One of the Republican flavors of the week has been caterwauling about flaws in the Obama administration plan to spend money on clean energy projects and about undue political influence in that process.

You know right where this is leading don’t you? To Republicans like Sen. Mitch McConnell and other critics of Obama putting their own hands out for the same money, sometimes in behalf of their political contributors, using big-shot lobbyists. BHDs.
