Sarah Palin is accusing President Obama’s health care plan of looking to create a “death panel” that would weigh whether her parents or son Trig were “worthy of health care.”Conservatives have demonized the Liberal Media for attacking Palin's family by saying it is shameful, unfair and downright dirty. And yet, Palin continues to bring in her family to fight her battles. She is shameless like any other pathetic politician who promotes their own agenda. But yet, last I heard, she is no longer in the political arena so what do we care what Sawah Painlin is going say or twitter?!
"Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we’re saying not just no, but hell no!" the former Alaska governor said in a post on her Facebook page late Friday.
In one of her first public policy statements since leaving office late last month, Palin discounted the administration’s view that the president’s plan would cut health care costs. The only path to lower costs, she said, was less treatment.
"And who will suffer the most when they ration care?" she wrote. "The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. 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." Link
So no more debates or counter-debates on what Palin says! So if she keeps opening her mouth to the public about how treacherous Obama is, or repeat the Republican talking points - we the bloggers should just make fun of her!
She has no executive power, she has no influence, hell - she has no brain!
Here are some hilarious responses I pulled from the blogosphere:
Besides being one of the worlds dumpest people, this women can't even read.
Will somebody stick a sock in this Lipstick Pig's mouth, please. She is such a stupid person. Her mother should have drowned her at birth.
This is a complete joke! Sarah Palin has no idea what she is talking about when it comes to health care reform. She is reading republican talking points. These words and phrases are being shared by other GOP leaders to scare Americans. These mobs that are disrupting our Town Hall meetings and our democracy feed off of this divisive, fear mongering rhetoric. We deserve an honest discussion about health care reform.
Palin is scary, and continues to show what a bad choice McCain made in selecting her for his VP candidate. Honest discourse on legitimate problems becomes impossible when idiots like Palin make dumb and inaccurate statements. Grow up, GOP.
Oh, Sarah. When will you actually have something substantive to say instead of just using your tired melodramatic and/or folksy rhetoric to incite the masses? As a woman, a Christian, and a mother, I am disgusted by you and weary of your presence in the media spotlight. Please shut up, go home, and do something productive, like actually BE a mother to your children.
Here I thought we had heard the end of this Palin thing, I wonder why she don't go soak her head in a lake?
why wont this woman just go away. palin and bachmann are making up garbage and using the same republican tactic of fear. we did not vote for palin in 2008, why is she still talking. sarah, just go stare at russia from your house.
Caribou Barbie and the entire GOP should stop fearmongering and spreading lies about Obama's health plan.
Why is the media still covering this wanabe. She has had 15 minutes fame. Her opinion is no more valid or substantial than anybody on the street. Let her die in peace.
And she left out World Peace.
Sarah darling, where did you get the comic book version of the healthcare bill? So far, there are multiple version of health care reform and none have made it into law. So, again, were do you get this MISINFORMATION? As a leader, I would think you would consider the consquences of your actions and take statesmanlike actions. We have to solve this together, but so far, you have not proposed a solution to any of the problems facing this country. Please go back to Alaska.
look who's always the first one to bring her family into the dialogue yet always whining to leave her family out of it.
Same old republican tactics. They never debate, they never offer solutions, they just come up with bald faced lies like "Obama is coming to murder my children." This nonsense combined with the fake outrage of the Tea Baggers and Birthers who do nothing but shout down people who are interested in improving things shows what a dead end group this is. I still hold out hope that one day they will grow up and join the rest of America in taking responsibility for making things better.
More utter lunacy from the Wasilla Wackjob. How in the world does the press continue to air this woman's fringe–and completely counterfactual–views? Why don't you guys spend a little more time debunking the outright lies and nonsense being disseminated by the GOP about the proposed health care plan so that we can have a little intellectual honesty in this debate? In other words, how about doing your jobs for once? I won't hold my breath.
And just who does Madam Palin thinks get left out of access to heallth care now? The elderly, the sick, the disabled…good gods, does she think before she speaks? Ever? Before I became disabled, I had never been without health care coverage, but the past decade has shown me just how horrible it is to need health care and be unable to afford it. I guarantee you neither Sarah Palin, nor any immediate family member of hers will ever, ever lack for access to proper, let alone minimal, health care, especially not as it stands. What is she scared of? That all Americans will have access to health care under Obama's plan? I think that's what truly frightens her, and her elitest GOP followers. This woman has no business speaking on any more weighty a subject than her beauty pageant days.
Wow, exploiting her downs-afflicted baby for political gain after accusing the Democrats of going after her kids. What a great person.
Enough said! Just laugh!
