If there is a dumber person in A-merry-ca than Sarah Palin I would like to meet him/her.
"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's "death panel" so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their "level of productivity in society," whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil."
Yeah...riiiight. OK Sarah, "death panels"?
Well, I know one thing, if his O ness is going to be picking such a panel I would love to be considered for an appointment to it. I would have a field day. (No pun intended) Folks like Nancy Reagan, Dick Cheney, Alan Greenspan,and Robert Byrd would be put to some serious consideration. I know Dick is kind of young but he has some serious heart problems, that shit costs money, not to mention the secret service protection that I am sure he is still getting. Yep, Dick Cheney? Check!
But it's not only the old and sick I would consider. Folks like Ollie, Rush,Sean, and Bill would have a lot of sleepless nights, I can guarantee you that much, because the "death panel" would always have their asses under serious consideration.
Oh field, that is just crazy, why would you even bring up a crazy ass rant from Sarah Palin. She is not even a legitimate and serious republican candidate anymore. Yes, but Newt is, and he agrees with her.
“You are asking us to trust turning power over to the government, when there are clearly people in American who believe in establishing euthanasia, including selective standards.”
Folks like Newt and Sarah can relax. The panel won't be going after everyone. If, for instance, I am selected for the "death panel", I will not go after Trig, her Down Syndrome baby. Babies are off limits to the death panel. I agree with Sarah there: That would be "downright evil". So Trig lives. Unfortunately for Sarah, the government has decided that she cannot keep custody of the poor child; we want to give Trig a fighting chance.
