Two-faced? GOP governors hate Obamacare but love its health care grants. You be the judge

Granted, politics often evolves into a dark Shakespearian drama with labyrinthine plot twists and tragedies. But nobody can accuse the Obama administration of being serpentine with its with health care grants.
The Obama administration today issued more than $45 million in new grants to various states for the implementation of the president’s health care law — some of which went to governors hostile both to the White House and the law itself.
The states that requested and were granted money include Florida ($4.2 million), whose governor, Rick Scott, has been an outspoken critique of the president’s health care package; Mississippi ($1.3 million), whose governor, Haley Barbour, is a potential 2012 candidate; and Minnesota ($13.4 million), whose former governor, potential presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty, has challenged health care’s constitutionality.
Ah, hypocrisy has a musty scent, does it not?
Of course, I guess these states would have been a bunch of lint-brains for not taking the money. After all, if you can have it both ways, why not? Sort of like getting trim and muscular while training on a diet of Haagen-Dazs.
And we all know that Scott, Barbour and Pawlenty are so cool they don’t even have belly-button lint, let alone dried saliva on the corners of their mouths.
