Palin on Healthcare

Palin keeps wanting to have opinions about things she is too stupid to understand. The latest topic to attract her attention is President Obama's ne healthcare plan. The plan is complex, it requires reading, thinking, analyzing. But who needs all that if you can ascribe some horrible intentions to the President and then berate him for that?

Here is what Palin wrote about the healthcare plan: "And who will suffer the most when they ration care? 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." Of course, what she describes here is beyond evil. One has to be a total Nazi to support the extermination of those who are deemed "unproductive".

The only problem with Palin's critique is that she should have addressed it to Hitler rather than to Obama. It is evident to anybody with half a brain that nothing in the President's politics or record suggests that he is a follower of fascism. He has been accused of many things but an accusation of this magnitude should be substantiated.

The healthcare plan is very important to all of us. It should be scrutinized and subjected to the most rigorous analysis possible. What Palin offers us, however, can't be called analysis. It's just a pretext she uses to proffer some entirely unfounded and bizarre accusations. She wants to use the natural feelings of compassion for the elderly, the terminally ill, and the disabled that every normal person has in order to manipulate us into hating Obama. She obviously feels that it's perfectly OK to use these people to achieve her political goals.

Only to image that at some point somebody so unscrupulous and unintelligent as Palin actually had a chance to become the Vice-President of the United States. The thought literally makes me cringe.

Palin has no shame. Her decision to quit her job was cowardly. So why doesn't she just crawl into a hole somewheres and stop persecuting us with her worthless opinions?

My feelings exactly. She needs to go away already, so that we can get over the trauma of ever finding out about her existence.

Oh, so now it's suddenly NOT okay to express your opinions? Or should Palin be less entitled to express herself than, say, you? This is double standard.

What Palin wrote isn't an "opinion". It's a lie. I defy anybody to show me where Obama has ever proposed exterminating the elderly and the disabled.
