Remember when Obama promised that the “stimulus” money would all be spent productively on projects that were really needed?

Today’s WSJ has this editorial on federal grants to Penn State professor Michael Mann — about $2.5 million for studies on climate change. Needed research? Saving of jobs? Or just a payoff to an intellectually dishonest academic who pushes the enviro-statist line that we must have immediate and drastic governmental action?

Now that Mann’s role in “climategate” is known, will his grants be rescinded? I’d love to see someone ask Robert Gibbs about that.
