From Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, on the Solyndra investigation he's been flogging for the past six months:

Is there a criminal activity? Perhaps not. Is there a political influence and connections? Perhaps not. Did they bend the rules for an agenda, an agenda not covered within the statute? Absolutely.

They bent the rules! Translation: The Obama administration really wanted the domestic solar industry to succeed, so they might have given Solyndra slightly more support than it deserved. That's the big scandal. Yeesh.
