Hark! I come bearing tidings of idiocy!
I’m at a loss as to why the Wall Street Journal, or any publication not composed of five year olds writing in sidewalk chalk, would want an op-ed from quitter extraordinaire Sarah Palin. And yet, there she is, talking about common sense like it’s something that she’s ever actually experienced:
"Is it any wonder that many of the sick and elderly are concerned that the Democrats' proposals will ultimately lead to rationing of their health care by-dare I say it-death panels?" she writes. "Establishment voices dismissed that phrase, but it rang true for many Americans."
I guess the Facebook status went over so well, she thought she’d give it another shot. She’s right though, the phrase did ring true for many Americans. Luckily, it really only rang true for her fellow disgruntled, Fox news worshipping, “we help those with the means to help themselves,” whiney wingnuts, and not for level-headed Americans.
Palin claims that the death-panels have been removed from the bill because America’s voice was heard. This is a nice little bit of reasoning that’s been popping up a lot from the right recently. Just like Obama had to remove all that crazy communism stuff from his school address because he was caught, dare I say, red handed.
