Line o' the day: 'No downside' to burning more taxpayer money

Dan Riehl spots today's winner:

With two Senate Republicans, Shelby and Kyl, coming out against the Detroit bailout because in their view, "an auto bailout would only postpone the industry's demise," Barney Frank has some inspiring thoughts on spending billions more in taxpayer dollars.

"The House is ready to do it," said Democratic Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. "There's no downside to trying."

There's something seriously wrong with an America that constantly re-elects people who all but laugh in your face while squandering taxpayer money. It isn't even real money to them.

Actually, I'm guessing they know it's real money. They just happen to believe it's their money.

Hat tip: Larwyn.
