Biden: “I’d spend a trillion dollars of your money so I can sleep well at night. What?”

Okay, he didn’t really say that, but the same idea was behind what he did say:

“We may be wrong,” Biden said. “But the point is, we believe in what we’re doing.”

My brother today called this the politics of sincerity. That nails it. And I’ve said on this blog and elsewhere for a while now that only from the left will you ever hear in any and just about every crisis that we must do “something, anything,” the implication being, of course, that what matters isn’t so much whether what we do makes any sense but is instead that some action is taken.

We can thank Joe Biden for his unthinking honesty. We now know that Democrats care far less about what works than they do about looking busy. I guess I’d be fine with it if it weren’t on our dime … or trillion.
