The Stupak Solution?

On Friday, Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) announced the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration had awarded nearly three-quarters of a million dollars to three Michigan airports to fund maintenance and improvement projects.  Given the apparent consensus that the President’s Executive Order on abortion funding gave Rep. Stupak relatively little of what he sought on that issue, is it overly cynical to be suspicious of these grants and their timing?  (Hat tip: Instapundit)
