Clinton Pollster Got $6 Million in Stimulus Cash

The Hill's Alexander Bolton reports:
What a deal! Less than $2 million per job created-or-saved for Democratic campaign consultants. The Hill also reports that "a former adviser to President Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign received nearly $70,000 from that contract to help alert viewers in difficult-to-reach communities that their televisions would soon no longer receive broadcast signals."
Beyond the obvious corruption and cronyism issues, one wonders why the stimulus funds are being spent on public relations and polling firms in the first place. Is this a jobs program or are the Democrats just trying to spend barrels of money as fast as they can on worthless projects? Mark Penn certainly has a lot of experience with the latter.
