Now, I’m not going to expand on the functionality of this network, as Michelle Malkin has already done so.
And I couldn’t find the exact wording of the Social Investment Fund Network in the Democratic Platform (warning, pdf!), but I did find this bit at Barack Obama’s Plan for Universal Voluntary Public Service:
**Social Investment Fund Network:**
Obama will create a Social Investment Fund Network to use federal seed money to leverage private sector funding to improve local innovation, test the impact of new ideas and expand successful programs to scale.
Doesn’t this sound an awful lot like a siphon?
Oh, wait, it is a SIFN…
