Senator Specter Nonsense

Jonah Goldberg has a great essay on the nonsensical position of Senator Specter on the so-called stimulus boondoggle being passed with his concurrence this week. Here is a sample, but the whole thing should be read here.

“I am supporting the economic stimulus package for one simple reason,” Specter wrote in the Post. “The country cannot afford not to take action.” Such thinking is the purest nonsense. Sure, if your house is burning down, you can’t afford not to take action. That doesn’t mean any action is better than no action. Grabbing a fire hose is good. Grabbing a jerrycan of gasoline and dancing the “Macarena,” not so much.
