Um, except for Sarah Palin… *sigh*

Damn, but it’s hard to keep up with teh stoopid, but -mental note- if you’re making lists it pays to check on what Sarah Palin has said recently.

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.

Okay, admittedly that’s probably not actually Sarah speaking, since the sentence is amenable to diagramming, but the stupidity is worthy of her.

It has the sheer anti-reality bias – there’s nothing even remotely like that kind of nonsense in the proposed legislation.

It has absurd blindness even to the right’s own stereotypes – really, liberals, the people who want to rehabilitate criminals and house the homeless and feed the hungry, these unrealistically soft-hearted patsies are the gas chamber crew?

Most of all, it has the signature quality of Palin’s policy pronouncement pratfalls, in that it’s Palin’s own policy to deny funds for special needs children like her own (who lack wealthy mothers).

I’m still only giving her the #2 slot though – saying the British NHS  would cast Stephen Hawking out to die when they’ve set world records keeping him alive is astronomically stupid.

  2. Sorry, Lottie… but click on her creepy face for a surprise!

  3. Ha! I needed that, Brian. Thanks! 😀

  4. […] Essentially the same group of people are now also becoming known as the Deathers, because they promulgate wildly inaccurate myths about the efforts to reform how healthcare is paid for in the United States, including the ludicrous notion that old people and others with expensive health issues will have to face ‘death panels’ to decide if they live, an idiocy first made public by Queen of Delusion Sarah Palin.
