Solyndra investors: Biden’s office “bout had an orgasm” over Solyndra

The Solyndra circus keeps on going and House Republicans are touting some juicy emails about meetings between Solyndra investors and the White House from early 2010. The emails aren’t a silver bullet, but are hilarious.

Reuters quotes an email sent by Ken Levit, executive director of the George Kaiser Family Foundation, to Steve Mitchell, managing director of Argonaut, back in February 2010, which describes the reactions of some of the officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office during a meeting:

“They about had an orgasm in Biden’s office when we mentioned Solyndra.”

Seriously. An adult man said that in an email to another adult man. And adult men will now be using that quote as evidence in political hearings of wrongdoing.

I never used this quote feature on this blog before until I saw this line and started laughing.
