Today, a Wilmington, Delaware train station was officially renamed for Joe Biden, the man charged with ensuring that every stimulus project comes in on time and on budget. Naturally this particular station came in $5.3 million over budget. That, however, was a small price to pay to add another piece to the puzzle of cost-effective reliable mass transit, as those in attendance at the ribbon cutting would find out as soon as the Amtrak CEO got there… by car. The train on which he was going to arrive at the ceremony for the Conductor of America’s Train to the Future broke down.

If this story gets injected with any more symbolism and irony it’s going to turn into a Stanley Kubrick film.

Incidentally, today, Biden said he didn’t deserve the honor. Don’t be so hard on yourself, Joe — it’s the taxpayers who don’t deserve it.
