Everyone is talking about the laughs heard 'round the world. Vice President Biden smirked and scoffed so much that the issue consumed much of the post-debate coverage. However, what wasn't mentioned was how Mr. Biden inadvertently made a strong case for conservatism when it comes to the nature of the welfare state.
