GEORGE WILL: From cupcakes to the police, fed up with government. “By printing and borrowing money, government avoids thinking about its proper scope and actual competence. . . . The collapse of confidence in government is not primarily because many conspicuous leaders are conspicuously dimwitted, although when Joe Biden refers to ‘the nation of Africa,’ or Harry Reid disparages the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision as rendered by ‘five white men’ (who included Clarence Thomas), Americans understand that their increasingly ludicrous government lacks adult supervision. What they might not understand is that Reids and Bidens come with government so bereft of restraint and so disoriented by delusions of grandeur that it gives fighting knives to police and grief to purveyors of noncompliant cupcakes.”
