Boy am I glad there are guys like William Jacobson blogging out there because posts like these shame the entire mainstream media establishment with it's right-on-ness (yup. A new word!) and it's countering of conventional wisdom:
Sarah Palin has kicked off (another) firestorm of criticism because of the statement she released on her Facebook page:Continue reading>>>The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. 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.
The incoming fire has been withering, as usual. Palin is accused of becoming the "Zombie Queen," certifiably insane, "clinically wrong," and espousing a "gruesome mix of camp and high farce."
